First, thanks to anyone who follows that link and good on ya', you're doing us both a favor. Here's the link - saves time typing it in http://www.rewards1.com/index.php?referrer_id=184364 now... Some usefull Tips & Tricks (highly recommend you read) 1. Use real info to make sure you get credit. You may get banned if you use fake information. 2. Download Roboform! I HIGHLY recommend this, as it will save you a ton of time when filling out forms. www.roboform.com is the link. It is free, you can just use the demo version and it's just as good (don't pay for the full version unless you want to). It's a lot better than Google Autofill also. 3. When going through giant lists of Yes/No forms, just hold down Tab and press the left arrow key over and over to do it automatically. Be sure to say yes to at least one offer to make sure you're credited (I usually just do the newsletters) 4. After every offer, clear your cookies. Lots of these companies are linked together and if you have the same cookies you may not get credited. To clear cookies, click Tools and then click Clear Private Data (it may say Delete Browsing History), and check the cookies box and click OK. 5. Frequently make new alternate email addresses and use them in offers to ensure the company doesn't know your info. 6. Use Internet Explorer because I've found offers credit more often with this because the security is lower. 7. Be sure to allow cookies on all sites and set privacy to none. To do this click Tools, click Internet Options, click Privacy, and then slide the bar all the way down to Accept All Cookies. If you have cookies off, you will NOT ever get credited.
