And I just accepted my first freebie product for my blog too!
But I warn prospective donors what they are in for.

A couple of GossenMetrawatt multimeters :-D
Still in the mail though...
They saw my blog and liked it, so wanted me to have some freebies just in
case I'd like to use them in future videos.

From what I read on the link, it sounds like all you have to do is
say, "I got these for free from the commpany."

I wonder what happens when the IRS gets wind of this?

Cheers!

I thought SOP with magazine reviews was to provide the product on
'loan', but never follow up on getting it back. So it's not really a
freebie.

In 1968 I had a Ford-provided T-bird... it was a "test vehicle"... I
had to write a monthly report on oil consumption, etc. ;-)

Sure it is if they "never follow up on getting it back" :-)

Last time I got such a "freebie" they *DID* follow up on getting it back :-(
(I have received others over the years however :-)
