http://groups.yahoo.com/search?query=Freecycle&sort=members where some people give away free stuff and others fight for it. Keep an eye on the number of members in each group.

I created a Yahoo account and started joining these groups such as http://groups.yahoo.com/group/freecyclenewyorkcity/. Have a look at the bottom of the page:

Group Email Addresses
Related Link: http://www.freecycle.org
Post message: [email protected]
Subscribe: [email protected]
Unsubscribe: [email protected]
List owner: [email protected]

For every group I collected a list of "Post message" email addresses separated by comas, like so: address1, address2, addres3 etc.

Two days and one email later my affiliate accounts were showing money.


How did I do it?


Hints: Trial offers, CPA offers, Downloadable items, "Somebody has already taken xxxxxx but you can get one here", "I can't send xxxxx so I uploaded it to xxxxxx instead", "I get free delivery if you...", Code breaker, "Enter your shipping details so that I could", "I need to make sure you can xxxxxx before I give you xxxxxxx so please xxxxxxxx".

Warnings: Read the group rules, most messages are moderated but if you follow the rules and format correctly 95% of them will make it past moderators.


Hopefully this will be a good thinking exercise for noobs and prevent a flood of people doing the same thing. I would also like to encourage you guys to discuss potential possibilities amongst each other here in this thread.

Thanks for giving only hints instead of revealing the exact method. That will help to prevent saturation a lot!

Wrong. First of all, this is a website where people give things for free, so I wouldn't put "win" anywhere in the ad. Second of all, you probably don't want to tell them someone already claimed the Wii until your autoresponder message.

Thanks. I forgot about this method. I tried it a few years ago with a CB offer...collosal disaster!
Don't subscribe to more than 100 groups and don't
have more than 1 email account for this purpose. Clearing out the inbox every day (which you should do!) can become a second job!

Just forward the emails to some other account and reply from there , they never know who it was in the group. There are people with different mails joined in freecyclegrps

Could I send them to a supposed Ebay auction so that my cookie is placed in their computer? Would that be anything worth doing?

Why send them to eBay where they have to "Buy" something when what they are seeking is "Free?"

I would guess that your conversions would be horribly low. And your traffic quality now contributes to your eBay payouts.
