comments iPod Promotion (Part 2) – iPod Arrives

Email  Print Print  

I received an email notification from DHL two days ago that my iPod Shuffle was on its way and today, I saw a package eagerly waiting me to rip open when I returned home from work. My shiny new iPod in it’s shiny new green packaging was ready for me to tear apart and enjoy. My account was approved for trading on 4/5/05, when I executed my first trade, and thirteen days later, a new iPod Shuffle sits in my hands. On 10/5/05, I’ll be giving them a call to get my $500 back. All told, it’s a $99 return on a $500 investment for 6 months.

  1. I got mine today too. It is fast!

    It’s too bad a lot of people just sign up at ex24 to get the free ipod. Me and my wife both goth ipods for new accounts, but that was just the start. We have referred about 30 people to this for 30 x $24 = $720, we have made money on recent stock purchases, and I think one would be hard pressed to beat their commission structure. My 4 “other” brokerage accounts are really overcharging me comparred to ex24. Hope they can get IRA’s in the future so I can transfer all of my accounts to ex24. Most of our friends have signed up thru us for a FREE $24 PER account.

  3. jim says: made the decision to give iPod’s away and a lot of people do take advantage of that promotion, such as myself. But they had to have done market studies to figure how much each new signup was “worth.” It’s what casinos do when they give away X dollars and force you to wager 12 times the bonus amount, because they know a new customer is worth more than the bonus.

    Each new signup must be worth more than $99 (or less if they can get a discount for buying iPods in bulk, but I doubt it considering their popularity) otherwise they wouldn’t have decided to do it.

    That’s also why they force you to stick for 6 months, maybe in that 6 months I’ll decide to make a few more trades and see what happens. I’ll keep my stock investments contained in my Roth for now…
