Nutshell:
Get free MS stuff by playing stupid little word games. Funny thing is that, some people have created macros to automatically play the games for you.
Some of the products you can get are pretty nice (X-Box 360, Zune, Vista).

Primer:

Notes:
-I joined this bandwagon a little too late in the game so I might not get any stuff I redeemed. Some people were blatantly abusing the system and ordered themselves 4-5 copies of every item possible to sell on ebay, returns, etc to get some quick cash. The first few waves of shipments were received but haven't heard anything recently of people getting their stuff.

-The macros still work to this day, but you have to be careful not to be "zeroed-out". But it is yet to be seen if any of the rewards will be received. There's also the issue of the maximum number of reward tickets you can obtain on one account, however they apparently don't care if you have multiple accounts and ship to the same address. (this might change nowadays)

-Based on the info from the information week article, MS is actually in pretty good shape. They gained approx. 3% in market share which is about 60% of Ask.com market share and yet they only spent a fraction of the cost since it's a lot cheaper to peddle MS junk then produce funny commercials.

-What do ya'll think?
