    Put 50 bucks in Adwords thinking I could pimp out my site selling a certain product but I cant get past the site rating. They won't let my ads live. Is there anything I can throw up that will actually pass the check to just make my money back?

    Legitimately, you'd be extremely lucky to profit from that $50.
    Advertising costs a lot as it involves testing and tracking.

    I run very small PPC campaigns and don't usually find out if the campaign is profitable for me until I've spent $200 - $300.

    Alternatively you could cloak your landing page to get approved but risk getting your account banned and eternal damnation.

    To cloak my landing page dont I have to have another page with a high quality score to "show" adwords? Or is there another way around this? I realize it will not likely be profitable, I just don't want my 50 bucks to go completely to waste. If I make 10 bucks back on my 50 then Ill be out only 40 etc..

    You could set up a fake site, & after you ad's approved, redirect it to your real site?
