Blingo - Scam or Legit?

Blingo - Scam or Legit?
Well, by now, these free prizes websites have started popping up everywhere. A popular one is Blingo-it offers prizes for searching, like Movie Tickets, $10-$100 iTunes Gift Cards, $100 Visa Gift Cards, iPods, PSPs, etc.

So-is this a scheme/scam or legit?

Blingo claims that is legit, boasting several media mentions. (Chicago Tribune and Tampa Bay Times)

So here is what I propose.

Like a good scientist should, lets test this!

PLEASE NOTE
By reading this you understand this is NOT SPAM. I have decided to test this. This topic is ALSO open for discussion on Blingo. If you understand this is not mindless spam, please continue.

Most of these sites work. The reason their not allowed is because they clog up forums with meaningless requests for people to click their refferal link. If WiBu says otherwise you can put the link back but for now its probaly best to remove it. - r3p1v

Clicking here will take you to the sign up screen. All it requires is your email, I assume shipping will only be asked if you win.

If, and ONLY if this works, the cool thing about this is that if someone signed up under me wins, I win the same prize as that person does. Maybe I could work out a deal with Wibs for my prizes to help out with the iPW server costs?? I would love to help out Wibs on the money Smile

So-for WiBu's sake, give it a try.

Otherwise, what do you think? Scam or not?

No go, and that wasn't nice with the link edit :/

I'll leave this open for discussion but no links.
