    Almost time to ressurect the 'Best Freebie at BETT' topic. I gather we got the D-Link stand swamped a couple of years ago when they were giving away free wi-fi hotspot detectors.

    Re: Getting Freebies

    Best year I had for freebies at BETT was a couple of years ago when I blagged the following:

    4 T-Shirts
    250 Lollipops
    2 Memory Sticks
    £150 worth of software
    8 Mugs
    A large number of pens
    1 Laptop
    and 2 lots of lunch

    The best thing was that I was only there for 1 day

    Well the next BETT will more than likely be my last one so I'm hoping for a good haul.

    Re: Getting Freebies

    "I got a iPod Nano of the CLC at my old school for doing some voluntary work."

    I got a cheque for £150. Not that 150 quid equates to two years of spending 95% of my free periods, time before and after school, lunchtimes and bits of holidays doing work for them.

    But still...the experience was invaluable and the HoD for ICT is now serving as my main professional reference atm

    <plug>BTW...i'm on placement year next year if anyone has any positions on big sites etc that i might want to consider applying for </plug>

    I won it in a draw after saying that I would be most disappointed if I didn't win considering how much I had spent with them over the previous years....
