I've often wondered about these refer-a-friend-and-get-free-stuff things; such as what do they get out of it? But one of my mother's friends and her accountant friend have looked into them, and they do seem to be a viable business, and therefore probably legit.
Apparently they work out a deal with established services for payment for referrals; we sign up to the service, and they pay the get-free-stuff people a little bit for it - which, of course, adds up to the value (and no doubt some profit, too) over the course of the n referrals.
If you're interested, my mother's friend found this one of Apple stuff. She also recommended choosing one of the free services (such as Lovefilm, which has a free trial and is also good in itself (my mother uses them already)).

You can now also send “Nothing” as a gift!

Except actually there is…
A couple of Thurdays ago, I want to Cafe Xanana ("bar, bistro, grill", but no mention of "cafe"...). According the clock in Xanana's kitchen it was 5 minutes before the advertised end of food service, but they'd already stopped serving. I got out my phone and sent an email to firstname.lastname@example.org while I was still angry.
After an intermediate email to check a few details, Nick Seagrave (CCDO) emailed me back to say I could have a free main course for two people by way of an apology.
So, since it was still on the lunch menu the next time I happened to go there, I got a free lunch. Admitedly I also had a drink and a side order that I had to pay for, but the main course was free.
I have to compliment them on their after–complaint service…

Yesterday marked the end of my labs for this term. Having had them every week until now, I'm currently 'FREE' on the lab timetableing sheet. Yay!
Gosh, free time, now there's a novelty…
