    No form of multi-level marketing (AKA pyramid schemes) is ever really legit. This one is the same as every other one; if you get in while it's on the way up, you can profit, but after that it's just losers fighting over the leftovers. (I have no idea where this one is at right now, but the fact that you're even asking tells me that it's probably past the money making days)

    If you think you can get others to buy into some crap, and those others will get more others to get into it, all profiting you, you are probably wrong, regardless of what particular crap you are peddling. Then again, if you can get a whole baseball card out of it, who am I to cast aspersions?

    Well, as I always say. "Something is better than nothing."

    I think I got the card for 8 points? I got point's from randomly spamming the "Swagbucks" searchbar, everyday for a week or so.

    I'm done with this kind of shit. I have tried nearly every one of those money-making sites, but none of them really work. Sure, some people might get prizes, but it just isn't worth your time. You might as well go work somewhere IRL, earn more money, spend less time on it, and buy more stuff.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!


    Anyone using linkbucks or any crap like that as download links and I just don't download it.
    It's a crap, pointless way to get crappy free stuff.

    The only places I have found to make decent money online is either Amazon's Mechanical Turk, or usertesting.com


    The former won't net you big bucks, but its better than nothing, the latter will get you much more money ($10 per review) but you have to pass a test to be accepted into the team. its kind of a hard test, and as far as I know you have to be 18 to participate.

    Neither of these, you notice, are MLM schemes.


    Edit: ooh yeah, and depending on the level of your google-fu, you may want to try KGB.com. I'm not a fast typist, but I know how to google efficiently, so I was making close to $6 an hour.

    you could always try on of the many GPT sites out there that have PTC stuff
    all you do is click links and browse a page for about a min to get paid (not much mind you compared to doing surveys and such...)
