I have no idea why Aim would choose a poncho as a free giveaway. Maybe because ponchos protect you from water and Aim protects you from cavities? That seems like a bit of a stretch, but whatever the reasoning, these type of random giveaways were an obsession of mine in my pre-teen years. I spent many an afternoon combing through magazines and newspapers looking for potential free stuff and twice that amount of time begging members of my family for money to cover the postage and handling.
In the end I had a lot of offers for stuff cut out and not too much stuff.
