FREEBIE: Pringles! BOGUS??

September 14, 2010 at 8:39 pm (Coupons & Promo Codes, Freebies, Samples) (, , , , , )

Pringles is offering a hot new freebie on their Facebook page! Sign up to receive a coupon (via mail) for a FREE (181 g) can of Pringles Extreme!! Valid while supplies last. Limit one coupon per Facebook account, and you must be 19 or older.

Well, it looks like this may have been one of those “too good to be true” offers…. If you signed up for this freebie, check your Facebook account – Account (right side of screen), Application Settings – and if there’s a Pringles Sampling link, you may want to remove it. I’ve never seen a link from a sample like that, which leads me to believe this was a spam offer. I’m sorry! I try really hard to not post fake offers, but I got scammed this time! I haven’t seen any posts from Pringles about the validity of this offer, but I removed the link anyway….

I want to take this opportunity to make a coupon/freebie suggestion…. If you sign up for freebies and coupons often, you may want to create a second Facebook account (and email too!) just for these offers. I have a Facebook account that has minimal personal information and no real “friends”. I only use this for coupons and special offers. That way my peeps won’t be swamped with corporate messages that they don’t care about and I don’t have to provide my personal info to these companies.

(Thanks, Hip 2 Save!)
