How to Get a Free Playstation 3

Aug 17, 2007
The PlayStation 3 is a high demand product, a very popular item that was released to the U.S. market in late 2006. Just in time for the holiday rush, the console became especially attractive to EBay resellers and other independent retailers as the consoles flew off the shelves in electronics stores and computer outlets across the country. The PlayStation 3 went through a heavy marketing campaign from Sony, along with local and national promotions both online and offline. As a result, many people pre-ordered the console and waited with heavy anticipation as the launch date came closer.

During the launch phases, many companies were able to secure a set of PlayStation 3s themselves. Although there were, and are, many limits on how many could be purchased by one party, some people were still able to get a varied selection of consoles ready for resale or giveaways. Some companies obtained them in order to create contests and promotions for their loyal customers.

Local radio and TV stations have created raffles, lotteries, and prize drawings to win a free PlayStation 3. Especially during the initial launch stages, many local stations featured competitions and contests where the PlayStation 3 was a top prize. Local charity auctions, or silent auctions, have also featured the PlayStation 3 as part of their giveaway and promotions strategy. It's a good idea to ask local stations and charities when they have events, and look out for the PlayStation 3 as a top prize.

Some websites promote a free PlayStation 3 as part of a promotional and marketing campaign where you sign up for other offers. Some of these offers are free, while others require initial charges that can be cancelled at a later time. Once a series of offers is completed and submitted, the company promises to deliver a free PlayStation 3 for the efforts. A few of them also add a competition or contest to qualify you in a drawing or raffle along the way. In either case, it's important to follow up and sign up for the offers you have interest in. It's also important to read all the guidelines carefully so that you do qualify for the free PlayStation 3 when it's all over.

Some companies such as car dealerships, luxury vacation packages, and other high-ticket item sellers might package a free PlayStation 3 console along with the sale. It's a good idea to find out all the details of the promotion, but there is a chance that you can get a free PlayStation 3 when you sign the lease for your new car or luxury home!
