Freebie Trading Rules

There are a few rules that must be followed if you are going to participate in freebie trading.

1. You can not use a proxy.
Proxies are used by some internet service providers, especially AOL. What they do is mask your ip address so that your real IP address can not be seen. This is against the rules because it is hard for the freebie sites to determine who you are and whether you are legitimate. Here is a link to check to see if you are using a proxy -->

2. You can only have one account per household/ip address.
For each freebie network you are only allowed to have one account. Any one else who uses the same IP address as you or lives in the same household is not allowed to have an account at the same site as you.

3. You can not use prepaid debit cards or prepaid credit cards.
These can get you disqualified for your prize and put you on permanent hold with the sites. The advertisers consider this fraud. The reason is because most free trials come with an understanding that they will charge you the membership fee if you don't cancel. If you use a prepaid card there is a chance that they won't be able to get their monthly fee from you. Due to massive amounts of fraud from this last year, advertisers and freebie sites do not allow prepaid cards to be used.

4. You can only do each offer once.
The reason that the freebie sites get paid for us completing offers is because they are bringing fresh leads to the advertisers. We are not allowed to do an offer more than once ever. There are also some offers that are owned by the same company, and we are only allowed to do one of the ones that are owned by them.

5. You must have a paypal account and be paypal verified.
This is more of a suggestion than anything. If you want to get cash as a prize you need to have a paypal account. If you want to get paid for doing the site as a referral you need to have paypal. I also use Revolution Money Exchange. They are backed by a bank as opposed to paypal who is not. Their fees are better too.
