FreeOfferDetective.com is a month-old informational web site that exposes the quirks found on the internet free offer sites (also known as rewards giveaway sites). These product promotional sites use the silver/gold/platinum multi-page selection program that requires visitors to participate in a number of offers to qualify for the main incentive item, such as a laptop or high value gift card. This item is what attracts the visitors to the site in the first place, and the FOD researchers concentrate on the types of offers encountered there.
The types of offers are, in addition to the outright sale transaction, the risk free trial (RFT) and the subscription. These last two result in recurring monthly fees which, if the consumer isn't careful, could get an unwanted surprise.
"We don't think caveat emptor--buyer beware--is good enough," declared Ralph Johnson, one of the researchers for FreeOfferDetective.com. "We want to discover all the nuances of these offers and then lay them out in review articles on our web site. This way, people can read about the offers before they try out the sites."
Johnson says FOD researchers believe in pointing out what the word "free" actually means at the various sites. In their findings so far, the dollar offset from "free" has never been zero, but if consumers are careful and timely, pretty good deals on the main incentive item can be had.
Free Offer Detective gives the average internet bargain hunter an advantage by previewing the various types of free offers for them. Then, explaining the intricacies of these sites is what they try to accomplish to assist the shopping public.
FreeOfferDetective.com is operated by affiliate internet marketers who believe that the more comfortable bargain hunters can become around these kinds of Free Offer sites, the more aware they will be of their options, and that will improve internet marketing overall.
