depends on how many hoops you like to jump through, and how much you feel your time and effort is worth. Now if you feel your time is worth less than min wage and you don't mind asking how high when told to jump..

Then maybe its worth it to you to jump a few times to get some $10 product for "free" ;)

as budman said if you feel your time is worth what you use to get the software than to you it might be worth it, however, for most people i do not see how this would be worth their time, but it could be for some people.

Well if you can just get a free dvd trial to get a free $20 to $50 program that doesn't seem like much effect.

Here is my fav quote on the whole thing

"it encourages people "to get products they don't really need by trying out other products they don't really need."

So looking for a list of products you can get -- I found this listing.. Suppose to be the full catalog..
http://www.24hsoftwa...ullCatalog.html

Looking through here I don't see one thing I would want even if was FREE, and didn't have to jump through any hoops to get it.
