Gotta love that free stuff. Fill out a small survey and MS will send you free MS branded USB memory key. Not sure of the size though.

Not at all - it let me select NZ as a country and Wellington as my city. I got a validation email as well.

Microsoft's Mystery Solved promotion:

"This offer is available in the U.S. only while supplies last. Limit one per customer. Please allow 6-8 weeks for delivery.".

It seems you have the link to the confirmation page, not the survey...

"Thanks for giving us all your Passport information, freely, with love, Microsoft"...

Oh well worth a try. I will wait 6 to 8 weeks and see it something pops up. All I gave them was a dodgy Hotmail account. No problem.

Just can't help but notice about the free USB memory stick, I got one from buying a LAN card from one of our supplier. The LAN card worth $8.99 plus GST (whole sale) and got given a 256MB mem stick worth $69.95 plus GST for free. Only thing is, it has our supplier's company name engraved to the cap of the USB. But it works fine, so no complain. LAN card is installed in our client's computer, and the USB stick is hanging around my neck. :)

I'm not sure if the promotion is still on, but I'm in Christchurch.
