free money?

I’m pretty much a sucker for free money any day of the week, but when a site asks me for things like my SSN it usually sends me packing. I’ve tried a few sites for the free money thing, namely, which turned out to be a sham. Not a sham because they don’t pay, but really because you have to make $30 before they’ll send you a check, which one learns quickly, would take forever regardless of the $5 sign-up bonus. Every “paid email” shells out about a penny, and many of the paid surveys allow you to spend 15 minutes taking the whole thing and then tell you you’re the wrong demographic at the very end. Infuriating.

So with this in mind, I hear about Revolution Money Exchange, a service targeting facebook users, etc that want to send money to each other. This service is shelling out $25 to everyone that signs up, with an additional $10 going to every referral. This certainly seemed too good to be true, so I did a little research. I find out there are supposedly some big hitters on the board and that this is really a front to try to garner potential users for the Revolution Card. With this in mind I begin the sign-up process, but stop dead in my tracks when I see a “Social Security Number” box. Time for more research before I put that kind of information anywhere. The San Francisco Business Times put my mind to ease the most with this article, but articles like this certainly helped.

I would suggest reading those links for your own edification, but long story short, the site is actually legit and its credit card seems really interesting and innovative. I’m not going to lie, I wanted this to be real and useful so bad because I seriously hate PayPal after they jacked $430 from me without warning. Regardless, I have an account, so if you’d be so kind as to post your email in the comments I’ll send you a referral email so we both win! I’m waiting for my bank account to clear, but I’ll post as soon as that happens.

    It’s hard to imagine, how people have guts to write comments like that. I would never write anything like this, because I would have thought what other would think of me after that. I know that it doesn’t matter who you are in Internet, you can act however you want, but anyway I would remember that a man should act nice and polite, no matter if he is online or offline

    I have observed that of all varieties of insurance, medical care insurance is the most marked by controversy because of the discord between the insurance coverage company’s need to remain adrift and the buyer’s need to have insurance. Insurance companies’ commissions on wellbeing plans are certainly low, as a result some businesses struggle to gain profits. Thanks for the ideas you talk about through your blog.
