Consumer Advice

Be Careful When Entering Drawings and Sweepstakes Online

Names can get sold to spammers. When a friend directs you to a FREE offer on the Internet, think twice! You cannot just print out a coupon you must give your email address!

I still sign up for free offers, so long as they don't need to send you an email to comfirm your acceptance of the offer. I if just need to fill out a form to get my coupon or freebie, I make sure I fill it out with useless information. I will give my correct mailing address if the item needs to be shipped, but I never supply a valid email address. They can then go ahead and spam an invalid address all they want and my inbox won't fill up with garbage.
