MMMMMMMM i thought to myself, free stuff (rubbing his hands in joy), id used a few free websites before and had quite a few small itmes, such as free tea bags, free lo salt and some free shaving products.
As i result i thought id scout around one day to see what other delights there were.
I found this website purely by chance, as the homepage flashed up, a putrid shade of green enveloped my screen yuk, in the top left corner is written mr free free and theres a little symbol of an aliens green face smiling at you.
Obviously this alien doesnt live in england, as i trawled around the pages, which i found to be quite fast from menu to menu, i found some free itmes listed.
I went straight to the food and drink freebies page, as i like little nik nak things like tea bags and jelly beans etc, as i click onto the menu and it loaded up, i found 9 items in this particular menu, in this menu was 5 itmes that had (USA ONLY) in bold writing, so there was no point in trying these items, up further inspection i saw a free coffee, grinder & thermos, worth a look i thought as my mouse pointer moved towards the link.
Upon clicking on this, even this item had an american dollar sign on it (not impressed) upon reading the said advert, it stated that it was all free if i paid $9.95 towards postage and packaging, in my eyes this doesnt make the item free as your having to pay to actually recieve it, a clever ploy but im sorry if i log onto a FREE website i dont expect to pay anything not even postage.
So i tried a few other menus, upon clicking onto the links to get into the items listed, the links didnt work, and the scereen said "page cannot be displayed" not sure whether this meant the links were just no good themselves, or maybe the item had ran out and was supposed to be removed, either way i wasnt amused again,
As you move around the site, u see more and more that its an american site. U see (USA ONLY) on most of the items.
LAYOUT AND DESIGN.
Theres nothing wrong with the layout on this site, (apart from the horrid green colour), its well laid out and easy to navigate around, the different headlines are easy to read. ( 8 out of 10)
Nothing wrong with this part either really, has most of the things other websites of a similiar type have, i noticed a get paid for sms section, i had a quick look, but ive been bitten in the past by this sort of thing and so i dont think i would waste money, it states that things are free on this website, where in reality they probably arent. (7 out of 10)
FREQUENCY OF UPDATES.
I havent been using this particular website for very long, but as yet i havent noticed any updates , (unless im being a typical man and not looking properly). What there is on other sites of this type is a date of when the item started, or any subsequent updates. (0 out of 10)
HOW FAST IS THIS WEBSITE.
As with any website used, this mostly depends on what server etc you actually use with your pc, i mostly use a works computer and so its very fast, i didnt notice that this website was any slower than others, so i guess that this website gets a thumbs up in this departement ( 8 out of 10)
In conclusion, due to the links that dont work, the usa orientated items and the lack of updates i wouldnt really recommend this to anybody outside of america, as i mentioned earlier i also wasnt happy about the amount of items where you have to pay for postage and packaging. I wouldnt recommend this site to anybody (unless i didnt like them) ONLY JOKING
TOTAL MARKS. (A POOR 3 OUT OF 10)
