We never like to be pessimistic at The Vertiblog, however the following promotion leaves as many questions unanswered as it answers. Somehow, freeu2tickets.com has secured 'a couple thousand' U2 tickets and plans on raising over $1,000,000 dollars for charity by 'giving' them away. Visitors to the site, by completing qualifying offers, will be given the 'opportunity' to receive 2 U2 tickets or 'equivalent cash value'. Several questions remain: What shows are the tickets good for? Where will the seats be? What is 'equivalent cash value'? $50 or $175? There are several similar programs giving away everything from free iPods to Bose speakers, all of which seem to have their fair share of satisfied customers. However, given the limited amount of tickets available, the lack of information regarding specific shows, and the immense demand for U2 tickets, we can't imagine this program lasting too long, nor offering a quality ticket to any of the remaining tour shows.

Step 1: Tell the company where to ship the two free U2 tickets.
Step 2: Tell two friends about FREE U2 Tickets.com.
Step 3: Participate in some of the advertisers' online offers.
FREE U2 Tickets.com provides a true triple-win for everyone involved:
Program participants win by getting two free U2 tickets and the products and services they want from the advertisers.
Advertisers win by getting new customers.
Local and national charities win by getting up to $1 million in donations from FREE U2 Tickets.com. (NOTE: One Campaign is not one of their listed charities...)
The more online offers program participants complete, the more the company will donate to the charity of their choice. They will even make the donation in the participant's name if they request it.
"I created FREE U2 Tickets.com because I couldn't believe I had to pay $500 for 2 average tickets just to go see U2 in concert," said FREE U2 Tickets.com VP, Brian Cornerstone. "I wanted to help other people avoid that heartburn by giving them another option – a triple win option. The program participant wins by getting two free U2 tickets, our advertisers win by getting new customers and the local and national charities win by getting the $1 million dollars we are raising for them."
