For example, a promotion, Microsoft Xbox, you must complete a total of 3 offers as follows: Page 1 - complete any 1 offer; Page 2 - complete any 1 offer; Page 3 - complete any 1 offer to get your gift. You must complete the Program exactly as indicated on each applicable page of the Site and in the applicable Program Requirements in order to complete the Program currently featured on the Site (the ?Incentive Gift?).

Examples of Offers required by the Program Requirements of our Third Party Partners include, but are not limited to, trial offers, credit cards, free quote requests, product offers, service offers and other low-cost or commercial Offers. Typically, there are a variety of Offers presented for your selection on the applicable pages of the Site - some Offers require a purchase to be made, while others are free trials that convert to paying obligations if not canceled or free applications that do not require an initial purchase (and can be cancelled without obligation if you do not want to consent to the purchase after the free period ends).
To 'complete' an Offer, you must sign up for the applicable Offer, get approval for your application from the applicable Third Party Partner, (where applicable) get activated by the applicable Third Party Partner for such Third Party Partner?s Offer and meet any and all other conditions and steps required by such Third Party Partner for that Offer. For some credit card Offers, the card must be activated by making a purchase, balance transfer or cash advance in order for the Offer to be considered 'completed'.
When our Third Party Partners report to us that you have completed the requisite number of Offers associated with the Program, to their full and complete satisfaction, which they may withhold for any reason in their sole discretion, your account (?Member Account?) will be updated accordingly and you will receive a Gift redemption voucher (?Gift Redemption Voucher?) from us. It will typically take between four (4) to six (6) weeks before we get confirmation of your completion of the requisite Offers associated with the subject Program from the applicable Third Party Partners. The Gift Status section of your Member Account shall indicate the results of this process, so please be patient and be sure to check the Gift Status section of your Member Account regularly. Be sure to print out and keep the pages showing that you have signed up for each Offer as you complete same.
