I personally would be careful about that one, I prefer the actions that give you all expansions for a low price instead. If you upgrade to Shadowlands for free, you're stuck with a pay account, and if you later on want Lost Eden or Alien Invasion, you end up paying 30ish ?óÔÇÜ?¼/$ for each one of them...

I agree, they tend to alternate between this offer, and the all expansions for $10 deal. While Shadowlands is by far the best expansion to get if you're only getting one, getting all of them for a low price is the biggest bang for your buck.

Let's see....
Cost of expansion (not counting monthly charge, thsi is after all what FC is after)
Classic AO - free
Notum Wars - free
Shadowlands - limited free offer
Alien Expansion - around 30 $
Lost Eden - around 30$ (comes with all expansions)

From this view, you don't really have much to lose. I kinda doubt LE will be free anytime soon. And if you're interested in aliens, you'll pay 30$ anyway.

If you upgrade to shadowlands for free you have to pay 30$ for AI + 30$ for LE = 60$

If you don't upgrade to SL, but instead upgrade to all Expansions, you get all of them for 30$

You typically get them all for something like ?óÔÇÜ?¼/$ 9.95. And Trgeorge, don't forget that with the limited free offer, your account immediately becomes a paid account. So Funcom will most likely make you pay even for the first month after you upgraded your account for free. Those "all expansions" deals typically come with one month of free game time included. At least the one I took did. :)
