It's a free sample of your design on a USB pen drive and you have to buy a minimum of 50 !!

Excuse me, it doesn't say anything about having to purchase 50, it says free example. And don't call me a dumb Brit, I was just posting a freebie for the masses. What kind of company sends you one free example as an incentive to make you buy thier stuff AFTER you have ordered 50+, yeah a real bonus aint it?
Maybe I was being polite, maybe I should have added: Just another dumb know it all MSE poster who doesn't understand FREE

It says, "Free sample available of your design on a Pen Drive" - only the design is free.

They'll most probably send an empty plastic/metallic case the size & shape of a pen drive with your design on it - there aint gonna be any memory in it. OP, I think you should edit your post's title & content to reflect this, as most people are going to get the wrong idea . G

well, my USB drive has adhesive tape around it at the moment, so I reckon if they send me one with thats just a shell, I'll try to doctor it up with my current one...

Thanks OP, I see A LOT worse in the way of "freebies" on this site than that...

well 50 x 32mb flash drives (the bare minimum available via this "freebie") comes in at 149.99.

If there's a worse "freebie" please post the link.

What a shocker!

Well when I looked it didn't make it clear that you could just ask for 1 sample. Maybe I am being a bit dumb but when I clicked on quantity the minimum was 50 for the USB pen drives and the free sample was of the design which I pointed out - not to be rude just to make any other posters aware before thinking they had a link to a free USB pen.

[QUOTE=paullj]

The OP indicated this might not be a freebie (the use of the word [Probably]) so I can't see any reason for the abuse.

The OP originally stated it was a free USB pen not 'probably'.

This funny tho, good potential freebie link but in reality they are somehow trying to make people pay £10 for empty plastic case with no memory, they must be targetting companies with a lot of money to throw away. These days you can get a 2gb flash drive for £25, hehe

Desperate Mum- i dont think any of the above messages were aimed at you, it was chuckles1066's messages that people were reacting to .
i think it was good of you to let people know that it appeared to you that you had to order 50 and you did so in such a polite manner. so don't worry i dont think anyone here thinks you were being rude in the slightest-just merely stating your observations.

Whilst I disagree that what I said was "unnecessary" (today's namby-pamby society unfortunately has a lot less moral backbone than mine), I'll withdraw my comments and offer my apologies to the OP.

In my defence (and this is something all MSEers should be aware of before posting "bargains"), posts to this site get propogated onto other sites (http://www.bargainspy.co.uk being one of many examples).

It damages the reputation of this website if someone on an external website links to a "bargain" posted here only to find it's actually quite the opposite.

Just my 2 euros worth.

Please keep the bad attitude, rudeness and failure to appreciate others for the CSA's at Tescos, which they seem to prefer as their standard method of attack to RnR. (That is, some of them).

Don't take it out on each other. Respect is what I offer everybody and appreciate in return.
