So there haven’t been many amazing freebie deals lately, but I did manage to come across one decent one. The UPS guy just dropped off a brand new 500GB Western Digital External USB Hard Drive, courtesy of ExternalDriveOffer.com.
Retail value: $119.99. Actual cost: $0.00.
I typically don’t like credit card offers, but this one was a pretty good deal. Sign up for a Discover Card, get the hard drive for free. After you get the card (assuming you’re approved) you just have to use it once to activate it.
Here’s my timeline:
Signed up – 8/30
Received card – 9/5
Used card – 9/7
Card shows as “activated” on free site – 9/10
Shipped – 10/9
Received – 10/10
They ship from Amazon, so I may return it for credit instead of keeping the drive. Not sure yet.

Update 10.24.08: Looks like they took down all of these offers. Sorry to anyone who missed out.
If you’d prefer a different gift, the same company hosts the following sites, each for signing up with a new Discover Card:
