    hmm makes it more difficult that they have to have a .edu email. Is there any way to make .edu emails for free? Thatd be golden.

    haven't figured that out yet...guess that's why they did it.

    i just uploaded my myspace contact list and hoped for the best. i let a few of my friends know about the whole .edu aspect first.

    let me know if you figure something out.

    that was the link to the contest, not a referral link. i'm not getting credit if you go there and do it. when you sign up, then they give you the referral link.

    the link to the contest is http://www.talenttrove.com/winterbailout

    i have my own referral link that is different from the contest one.

    i'm telling you, i made $50 and it took 10 minutes, but than again i got like 500 contacts on myspace

    Geez, quite a bit abi of referrals neeeded just for $50. O well, I guess if you had a lot of mates via social web sites then this could work.

    scoutster, did you already physically get the money.. or is it still in your account with them?

    If you did, what did they pay by? check, paypal, ect.

    I'm a bit weary, as this is your first post, posting a link to a site.

    got most of my contacts from school--classes, partying and stuff. most of my friends are going to start referring.

    i'm getting paid via paypal. i didn't have a paypal account so i had to create one, but the money is now mine.

    i was just browsing this site, my friend always talks about it. i saw a making money thing and i just made some money so i figured i'd contribute.

    i've been lurking this forum for a while .. but this worked good for me.

    I made 50 bucks in less than a half hour, just messaged all my college contacts and told them to make accounts with their .edu addys.

    thanks for the heads up :cool:

    Have you guys actually gotten the funds in your PayPal account yet? This looks completly legit I am just curious as to when they actually plan paying.

    I'll be trying this out tonight.. I have tons of friends on Facebook, I'll have to send a mass message/event invite or something. I'll definitely follow up on how it turns out!
