Time to renew your
account? Apple is offering a special offer in which you get 20 percent off your renewal fee (US$99) if you talk a friend into signing up for the suite of Internet services. Sign up five friends and you can renew for free (sorry, but you can’t go beyond five and get a check in the mail).
Apple has prepared an online form that you can send to your friends and colleagues, urging them to sign up. You can add your own personal note to the form, if you’d like.
You’ll need to sign up your compadres at least 31 days before your account expires. The new member sign-up drive ends Oct. 31.
