The deal below has expired, but no worries. You can still check out available coupons and "follow" the store to receive alerts for future offers.

IBM - 8GB USB flash drive - FREE

IBM is giving away 8GB USB drives for CIOs, preloaded with the "CIO Reader"... apparently a bunch of stuff that CIOs need to know about IBM.

So if you're a CIO (or perhaps not), register for a free 8GB drive!

You may need to refresh the page multiple times (just keep clicking "resend" when prompted) until it goes through.
Keep in mind that the "State/Province" box will show up blank initially. After your first submission, you'll be told that you failed to fill in that box. Fill it in now, the list will no longer be gray and will instead drop down like normal. Keep going at it until it goes through.

Seems like it works when you check both boxes... I tried it first only checking one, but it came up with any error. Tried it again with both checked and it worked instantly! I hope it comes, you can never have enough flash drives!

I am able to get past the "State" part, and I click submit. My browser just sits there without progress for awhile, then says "Our apologies..." with a statement about how the page doesn't work. When I hit the back button, I get back to the screen with all my info still filled in, and I can click submit again. Is that the way to get it to work? Or should I refresh the "Our apologies..." page?

"Our apologies..."

Keep refresh the page, it will work ! Do not hit Back button or anything else, ignore whatever you will on the page. You are almost there though.

lmdamon Oct 26, 2010
Ok, I'll keep hitting refresh then, and keep telling it to resend the information. Hopefully it'll work! Isn't it ironic that IBM's page is like that? So silly. Technology-driven company....

Thank you!

It does work. IF you just try long enough.

Stage one - Getting the page to fill in your info.

Stage two - The page you just filled out will have the state choice grayed out. Submit anyway.

Stage three - The page will pop back up asking you for your state and you will be able to fill it in this time. Submit again.

Stage four - You must see the confirmation page for your order. Refresh until you do.

Stage five - You receive an email confirming it's on the way.

You may need to start over many times.
