Call me paranoid but being understood by some weird company is not on top of my wish list.
From the Terms & Conditions:
Prospective members must: (a) submit their zip code to determine geographic eligibility; (b) register with a valid and deliverable email address; (c) submit accurate contact and demographic information including a mailing address and phone number; (d) select the laptop computer he/she would like to receive; (e) acquire two advertiser action points from each of LRC's three Offer Groups for a total of six advertiser action points.Action points are earned when a LRC user fully completes an advertiser offer after accessing the offer by clicking on a link provided on the LRC website or from the LRC member area.
Not sure what those are, but I think that's where things get real complicated...
In cases of a financial offer such as a credit card, the card must be activated by making a purchase, balance transfer or cash advance in order for the offer to be considered "completed", and the user must remain a card holder for at least 60 days. For paid retail offers you must accept the item/service and pay in full.
This is getting scary....
From the website containing the offer:
Completion of sponsor offers most often requires a purchase or filing a credit application and being accepted for a financial product such as a credit card or consumer loan.
Ah, so you have to loan loads of money first (over which they'll obviously charge interest, possibly at high rates)!!!! So, you have to get in deep debts to get a "$2500" laptop. If you want a laptop that badly, better go to the bank to loan that amount of money. If they don't want to loan it to you, you probably shouldn't try loaning it elsewhere. Banks may be nasty, but other companies are far less trustworthy...
