Does this work if you've already spent some "free AP" from the surveys/videos/downloads doodah? I don't mind if not, just interested. Largely because I've just spent the past half hour uninstalling all the junk that the downloads install. I didn't know there were so many useless browser toolbars in the world
Quite a number of the things didn't seem to credit me with the promised points, and I eventually lost track of which did and did not. The videos all do, and I think one survey and one download did. The downloads throw a mass of junk onto one's system including special "downloader" software which is the main payload. I got quite distracted playing a children's "find the hidden objects" game that I'd actually give to a child to pass a bored hour or two, if I had kids to keep occupied. Not getting a credit for the tedium of filling in the surveys was disappointing; I imagine Aeria are being paid after all, so it ought to work as advertised. I must admit I actually found myself properly watching the videos. I now know how hard it is to know which direction a train is coming from, and am thoroughly brand aware to LG products, haha.
Overall though, a bit of a mixed bag on the free AP stuff. Still, it got me enough for a skill reset code, a derpy and a fetch pet chip, so I'd recommend it to anyone with some time to kill and the nous to remove unwanted software from their system afterwards if they hazard the downloads.
So anyway, if I were now to purchase some real AP with real money, would I get the starter pack, or has that boat sailed for me?
