Free Envelopes and Stamps

Looks like they cover their costs by putting an advertiser's logo on the envelopes they send you. Could be wrong. I am interested to get your thought's on this place though.

You get 4 free postage paid envelopes every fortnight

whats the catch? there is probably one somewhere, seems to good to be true
#2
Is there a cost?

No. Freepost4u is a completely free service. Our advertisers display their logos on the back of our envelopes and this means that subscribers get to send their post for free.

Personally i`d avoid this as it looks more like a scam site than, [url]www.giveusyouremailaddress.com[/url].

Clever idea though.

Can't see it paying off for the Co though.

Even if they have 'done a deal' with the PO it'll still cost the advertiser at least £25.00 for just 100 envelopes with a minimum order of approx 1000 - most of which will go straight in the bin.

it'd be interesting to see if it takes off but I shant hold my breath.

AHA. just noticed that they mail YOU every fortnight in order to get you to part with your readies.

O.k. COULD work.

Go for it.

Repped & Voted

Thanks.

It may be the idea is to only advertise their own website for the first couple of months, and once they can show how popular the service is they'll be able to attract more and better advertisers. It seems like a sound premise to me. I'm going to join up and see what happens.

Voted hot.
#13
looks like they're just taking information of ours to sell off. i'll vote this hot when i get those envelopes. i'll vote it cold when i suddenly get 100x more junk mail from companies i've never been in touch with.
#14
Looks like a good idea to me, voted hot, thanks for sharing.
#15
Looks too good to be true, but hey, I didn't have to give them any card details so they can't bill me for anything!!!

Signed up, let's see what happens - at worst, nothing but a bunch of spam, at best, a bunch of spam and free postage - cool!

Great find - voted hot
#16
I always use a fake email address anyhow?! and my work address, then i don't have to worry about junkmail etc.

May as well give it a try - it could turn out to be a sound business idea if it takes off! Only time will tell...
#21
Sounds good to me, useful way to send junk mail can't be bad.
#22
:giggle: alternatively, send mail from work :giggle:
#23
I reckon they plan to raid the local DSS offices for government stamped envelopes lol.
#24
There is another way which works every time but is slightly against the law.
Those letters that you receive from banks etc. have "postage paid" in the corner where the stamp normally is. Just re-use this envelope and stick a different label over the address. Never Fails.
#25
Just a thought it could even be like the reverse charge phone rate......


so maybe the receipient will be charged for the post........hahaha if your paying bills by post...

but..... if they charge on delivery royal mail will add on a £1 for admin....so maybe the company is royal mail trying to get some money to save its Post Offices:giggle:

I did not think you could do that as they billed back by the post code?:?
#27
Didn't get any confirmation on the screen that I will be sent envelopes etc etc..
Just an e-mail to say that I'm registered with them
Did anyone else get any confirmation?

Oh yes it will fail - every time! (well you might get the odd lucky letter delivered for free)

Unless you mean you get a free envelope.

You certainly don't get free postage as the licence number relates to the address and there's a whole raft of paperwork that goes on behind the scene to check this (as if the envelope does not get used then the original company does not get billed - that's how it's different to them just sticking a stamp on an envelope)

I certainly wouldn't recommend anyone attempt fraud for the price of a stamp!


Oh, and back on topic - voted COLD to the OP as it looks unproven without any advertisers actually having signed up yet.

Also it says on their website that they have been registered with the data commissioners office since 1998, but the record suggests they only registered 8 days ago! (Registration number: Z9920047)

It sure does fail, I got a note the other day when someone did this to me. The Post Office wanted £1.60 (£1.00 admin) to deliver the letter.

I said......... shred it, I don't want it.......

Wonder how many of you victims pay the fee?

scam site - dont bother

Yes you are right in that if the envelope doesn't get used then the company won't get billed, but there are no checks to ensure that the envelope doesn't get used twice.[U][I] [/I][/U]

I'm not telling anyone to attempt fraud, but you never know if it works unless u try it

Scam or not, it's worth a try, thanks,

I couldn't find any claim to having registered in 1998. Did you misread this?
"We are registered with the Information Commissioner’s Office under the Data Protection Act 1998. "

I can't see what to do with the address info. The address you showed is a reasonable area. I know it quite well, as a friend lives nearby. That's no guarantee that the guy running this is or is not a scammer, though.
#34
Oh, just taking this one stage further. A quick google of the distinctive name of the person registered with the information commissioner leads to this website:
http://www.wizz2u.com/

It all kind of hangs together. I'll sign up. I am not going to plan all my future postage on this basis, but it's worth a try.

As per the last reply there are checks to ensure business paid envelopes are not abused.

Pretty sure it's a SPAM getter, but gave it a go and used a desposable email address.
#37
Think I will give this one a miss, only because reading all the comments everyone else seems unsure too! :thinking:

:oops: [COLOR="DarkOrchid"]"Thank you for registering with Freepost4u - the unique service that sends you free postage-paid envelopes straight to your home.

We are planning to launch our first envelope over the summer - keep an eye on your letterbox for your first package of free envelopes!

Regards
The Freepost4u Team" [/COLOR]:oops:

[COLOR="Green"]:-( Hmm, I think this should be voted cold at the moment as they are collecting peoples details when obviously they do not have any envelopes to send out yet. However, it may be worth keeping an eye on it as its not impossible that some envelopes might turn up. I wont hold my breath though! I am sure the spam comes before the envelopes do. Oh well, nothing ventured, nothing gained- just glad I didnt give them my real name! ;-) [/COLOR]

There is a company in America that have done this, not sure if it worked well or not, but looks like someone copied it over here.

In theory it seems a good idea. Although like the "reduced fuel if 10,000,000,000 sign up at some dodgy website (we all know what happened there) i'm not sure whether it'll get up and running!

I think this letter must have come from a source unrelated to what I'm talking about, as I know that checks are not made twice. I think you might have got your wires crossed as I know this method works absolutely fine!
