    I've been using Yahoo SM $199 credit links for the past 7 months and all a sudden today they are not working any more. Has anyone today run into a similar issue?

    Maybe I've been spoiled, but it kinda sucks. Now I'll have to go looking around for more credit links.

    Yeah, this really sucks. Do you happen to know if all of them are invalid. I had about 10 different links and all went bad today. I guess i'll have to revert back to using the 100 dollar links.

    please share at the last the $100 links. When I signed up I clicked on a link that says $100, and no credit showed up. I emailed them with the link to that website,all they said was it was displaying an out of date banner and only gave me $25

    We are working on finding more codes. I pray that Yahoo did not do a global search and get ride of them all together. Lets all pool our resources to find more codes.

    Here are a few $75 credits I found.

    Yes, this is for free PPC credit. We've been getting free 199 credits from yahoo for the past 7 months........but it looks like yahoo has stopped that gravy train.

    Well it sounds like people are trying to find a new gravy train... Would someone let me know how it works exactly? Like do we need a new account for each set of free credits or what?

    Do you have to create a new account with each coupon?
