Hi Matt,

I'm one of your 76 views, but as I'm not a PC re-seller I didn't think it was worth filling in the form, and from the information they ask for I don't think I could convince them that I am.

Thank you for visiting Logitech’s dedicated reseller site. To claim your free Cordless Desktop Deluxe please register now by filling in our quick online survey. We want you to find it easy to sell Logitech peripherals so we hope you won’t mind answering a few questions about your needs and those of your customers. The information you provide will be used only by Logitech, and only to ensure that we provide you with information that will make our products as accessible and relevant as possible for you. . . .
. . . Thanks you for completing this form. If all fields have been completed, Logitech will send you a Cordless Desktop Deluxe.

Don't shoot the messenger!

fair enough WavieDavie Smiley

im a member of a number of forums, most now have a freebie forum, so people can share "free stuff" they come across on the net

you would be surprised at the number of things these "bigger" firms sent out as "gifts" for getting your e.mail address

the trick is with them, is to fill them out a few times, family members, Just before christmas, i got sent 7 USB PC lights (retail about 10 - 15 quid each) they were sent to family members, they are nice aswell, this was from a survey i completed in the summer Smiley, but i got them in the end

i allways say to people who say "you will not get anything, no1 gives away free stuff",

i allways reply with "you got to be in it, to win it, no harm in trying"

these cordless desktop set-ups are real nice, and aint cheap,

ebay here i come  Grin Grin Grin

Yes, thanks.

My mum would have killed me if she knew I hadn`t thanked you.

Hi Matt,

I've had a fair few freebies off the internet myself, but this is obviously for re-sellers and what are you going to say to the Logitech rep who knocks your door to convince you to order lots from them as you've taken their sweetener? A £30-£40 keyboard ain't no mousemat and his sales manager will be wanting your signature on an orderform or the rep's got a lot of explaining to do.

I'd duck out of this one, mate. Best of luck.  

Good idea about selling on freebies on E-bay though!

just a update folks

they have started to send these out

these are the type they are

not bad Smiley

WavieDavie i know what you mean, i had a free coffee maker and enough coffee for 6 months once, then a guy arrives selling Office furniture, he was expecting a Office building with 20 plus people in it, i told him i work from home, and wasnt interested, he was ok about it, i didnt even offer him a cup of coffee  Grin Grin

nice one . ive ordered a desk top kit

ive also replyed to that free pc survey as well

Im Welsh, thats fairly close, celtic brothers and all that  Wink

that PC thing looks good, i knew about the day of the launch, the only thing that put me off, is they get you to sign a contract, saying you will have

watch up to 3 minutes of advertising per hour of use

that concearns me, not the fact that you will watch adverts, the fact is, the PC will have a spyware installed, so they can monitor what you do on your PC, so they can traget the specific adverts, NOW i dont really want big brother watching me surf the net (not that i do anything bad, its just a privacy thing)
