I managed to register on Friday after being sent the email. My friend had
just received her actual bottle of wine. Proof that maybe one in a million
offerings has value.

I think what they have offered is a decent ploy to get PR and users
interested in their site. The problem for marketers is that this style of
marketing has received such a bad reputation that it is virtually useless.

One thing that can be leant from this is that they backed their email up
with a specific web page which lent credibility to their offering -
something that not many people do esp. with banners.

I recently received an email "offer" from ericson for a WAP phone but didn't
do anything, possibly I should have :-)

Regards
Rich

if anyone actually manages to register for their free bottle, it would be
great to know how long it took. i tried for at least half an hour on Friday
with no joy. talk about desperate!
