    Many Registrations at the same time?

    I have read a long time ago from someone in the forum who claimed to be able to get around of the "one per household" limitation using PO Boxes.
    Is that really possible to do that?

    Do you still use your name in all those PO Box addresses?
    Don't they catch you?
    What about the phone number, do you use the same one in all?

    I was just curious... I guess that we have nothing to lose trying...

    Not sure if I follow you here. But, you are asking us how to scam someone else by getting around their 'one entry per household rule'?

    Why do you need multiple PO boxes?

    I think he means to sign up or create many accounts to get more than one prize (free gift) from one company and filling the forms writing that his address is a PO Box instead of his real home address.
    Since the rules generally are "one entry per household rule", that would get around that condition.

    (yeah, what if he is homeless or he lives in a trailer?)

    Well, I think legally there is nothing illegal... ethically it is not unethical but it is clearly not ethical either. Very gray and shady.
    But possible?, yes, in my opinion...

    Sole has it right, that is what I am asking.
    Anybody who tried that before?
    Would they notice if I use PO Boxes instead of the residential address?

    I am pretty sure that I read that someone here was doing that, and that was why he/she had so many "free gifts" earned, displaying in the signature...

    Most freebie companies will not accept PO boxes for your address. The offers themselves, however, are a crapshoot, but a lot of them won't, either, mostly because of people trying to skirt the rules like you.

    Really is becoming the rule, rather than the exception. It is getting to where many mail order sites will not accept PO boxes.

    Felt a bit bad because I am working toward what I think is a good and legit deal and my nephew who lives with us had stated he was about to get started on a great deal he found (same site.) I had to let him know that because of the one-per-household thing, he couldn't try for that offer. Poor guy--really hard working college kid and he can't get in that one.

    My recent experience is, unfortunately, that the really legit offers are seriously dwindling. :(

    I thought about this same issue and I think the way around this is to rent a box at some UPS store. The UPS store is a street name and the reason it will work is that UPS cannot deliver to a PO box, but will deliver or drop off at a UPS store. I might be wrong, but I know that's what I heard will work.
