Apple is continuing its campaign to attract new .Mac members by adding new features, and in this case offering free stuff, to existing members. The company sent out a letter to members that offers 100 free prints through iPhotois digital photo printing service to current members. People who sign up before October 31st of 2002 can also take advantage of the offer. Members who have checked out the offer have told us that one needs to sign up for the offer through the letter, and that the photos need to be ordered before the end of December. Make sure you check your .Mac account for more information.
Apple is also offering a free copy of Alchemy Deluxe, a puzzle game from PopCap Games, to members, or take advantage of a US$5 discount for PopCapis Bejeweled Deluxe, another puzzle game. A snippet of the letter sent to members:
