Seems like a good way to obtain email addresses and mailing addresses for spamming, junk mail, and reselling mailing lists to scummy advertisers.

Everytime you go in with a new IP, the timer starts at 31:30 left.

I'd call OLD NAVY and get your $250 from OLD NAVY. FIGHT for it, so they go an sue the person who is pulling the scam.

Who cares, open to Americans only.

They can only get scammed, not us.

its a scam.
thisis how it works.. it says
"complete an online offer"
get 5 people to do the same
you get prize

now, think for a second, if you need to get 5 people to do the same online offer, they too will need to get 5 of their friends to do it
IT NEVER ENDS. think of it like this.. if you got 5 friends to do it, and each of them got 5 friends, and each of them got 5, YOU COULD honesty get the whole damn world to do this offer and you woulnd't get shit, cuz in the end, the final people would have no friends to add it and it would ripple throughout the whole treee.
