    I like the ease of use, very straightforward, not too many buttons. It is definitely not a scam since a several of my friends have won from them.

    I think the UI is a little rough if you click through any links. The font use + layout needs…

    Like the idea, but I think a bit more info on the home page to describe the product would help with the bounce/sign-up rate.

    The idea of having a lunch tray as a background was a good one. However its execution makes the site look cheap. The lunch tray needs to be fixed somehow. It just doesn’t go with the text.

    1. Did not like the ads on the sides of the page. It cheapens the site. Or maybe show relevant adds like of a particular product being reviewed rather than say an ad for batteries.com or a itunes album which does not have much relevance to the site.
    2. I was wondering why you guys were giving free stuff out to begin with. Briefly mention how freelunched makes money. e.g. we genarte revenues out of a commission from product sales etc.

    I like the concept though.

    Also like the concept (but not the ads). In addition to displaying the last winner (top right), perhaps also state what FreeLunch they won. I don’t think it’s necessary to state your revenue model on the home page, but I do think you should more actively promote product discussion/reviews. If I’m considering a review, one more free entry is probably insufficient to get me over the line. You could also highlight the product details box which takes you to the review page better. It’s the last thing I looked at on the home page but one of the more important things for the site I would have thought. Can you also be more explicit up front about what kinds of products the site relates to? Well done overall! Great concept and I like the ‘something for nothing’ feel about the site.

    Conceptually I think the site may be useful but I think the current homepage design is too busy. I’d remove the advertisements, change the background image and focus your users towards a single action.

    The “I’m Hungry” button label is not clear what exactly this means – I’d suggest making it clearer – for instance “Sign-up”.
