I heard the song “Never Gonna Give You Up” the other day and the memories just flooded in…

The biggest wave came in 2008 on April Fools’ Day where thousands of YouTube’s front page videos had the clasic bait and switch to the legendary Rick Astley that will make this writer smile forever. This is the kind of SPAM that is awesome and the reason for viral content and good meme’s online. From Scientology protest to sporting events all the way to the White House Twitter feed Rick Rolling is probably that most popular prank on the internet… or at least the most beloved.

The cool thing about the Rick Roll SPAM is that it made it off the web and into real life, that, and no one can really ever be too mad about a good ole Rick Roll, in fact I find it a delight.

Whoever thought of this idea is amazing and I salute you. Sha-wing. 

$1000 Victoria’s Secret Card

I, along with most guys out there, love pleasing my girlfriend and making her feel great about herself and the relationship in general. One of the stores that can help me do this more than any other that I can think of is Victoria’s Secret. Most of the time it is just a nice perfume set or lotions or something, but they everything that you could imagine for her.

While of course it isn’t actually free, it is still a nice dream. Basically, they are trying to show you that you get a free $1000 gift card for Victoria’s Secret. What they aren’t telling you about is the participation that is required, shown in the fine print at the bottom of the ad. These participations are ridiculous and include such things as signing up for a cable company, opening a bank account, and other similar things.

If this isn’t good enough for you, these people offering this gift card aren’t even affiliated with Victoria’s Secret.

Gas Credit Cards

Ever wanted to get yourself a gas card? These work almost like gift cards and can be used to purchase gas – and only gas – from the given gas station. Usually, they will be from the gas station themselves and pretty much be limited to that location (company, anyway).

Personally, I would just go with a prepaid visa, a debit card, or your pre-existing credit card. As usual with these spam e-mails, I really don’t have much of a use for a gas card (unless as a gift). Of course, that doesn’t mean there isn’t someone that this could benefit. Therefore, feel free to get scammed by this e-mail:

Free Cheesecake Factory Gift Card

Oh man, I absolutely love cheesecake. I so wish this was real so I could spend $100 in cheesecake, which I feel probably wouldn’t get me very far at a Cheesecake Factory. Nevertheless, I can still post this and drool over the picture every time I check the blog out.

Free Nordstrom Gift Card

Let’s see if you notice anything that I did right away.

Free $1000 Nordstrom Gift Card – Details Inside!

Well, let’s find out if you noticed. First, if says the gift card is $1000. However, then $500 is mentioned a couple times. A $500 difference is quite a lot, especially when shopping with a gift card. So, I suppose it would at least be nice to know if this fake gift card is worth $500 or $1000. Next time, maybe they’ll double-check their message.

$250 Outback Gift Card

This must be the week of gift cards. Had these been real, I wouldn’t have to spend money for quite awhile. I would have my romantic life settled with my $1000 Victoria’s Secret gift card, my groceries and entertainment set with my $1000 Walmart gift card, and now even a few nights on the town with a $250 (said in the Subject of the email) Outback Steakhouse gift card. How lucky am I?

 

Too bad reality sizzles in my face as I realize I won’t be getting $2250 worth of free gift cards this week. Bummer, I was so excited.

“Your ticket to $1,000 Walmart certificate has just arrived! Terms Apply

Complete sponsors offers & receive $1K Walmart Gift Card as a gift! See Details”

 

Well jeez. If I won, why do I have to do sponsor offers before I can claim my “ticket.” Heh. I feel as if $1000 would go a long way at Walmart.

Victoria’s Secret Gift Card

I sure wish this one was true. I could shop without budget worries for the girlfriend for well over a year (or be way too nice and do it all at once)!

“Valentine’s Gift: Free $1000 Victoria’s Secret Gift Card”
“Participation Required. See Offer Details.”

I do appreciate a Valentine’s gift, but this one is highly doubtful. Especially since I have to do another 13 offers from their sponsors.
