    Hello All,

    Yes, I'm a newb here but have been in affiliate marketing for a few years. My current situation and question for you all is this: Do you see a difference between using, lets say, an Adwords promo credit to receive $50 in free clicks and only using the account for that reason, and repeating this process, versus just creating an Adwords account with the post-pay option and running up a $50 balance with a VCC that can't get charged the $50, and repeating that process?

    My theory is that they both are the same. With the promo credit, the company, whomever it may be, fronts you the $50, while without the coupon/code, the company has a post-pay option and allows you credit on the back-end up to $50. They both allow credit to a certain amount.

    I'm in a situation where I have done both and now dump accounts with balances left on them and just make new ones with the post-pay option. I think the post-pay might, in a sense, create a "debt" if you will, while the free credit is "on the house." But, if Google or whomever was to go after you for this, they probably would still seek the total of the $50 credits you have used.

    MySpace beta has some loopholes that work well with the post-pay option. However, since Google, Yahoo, MSN, etc... has had people take advantage of their promo credits and post-pay option for years now, nothing, at least I don't think nothing, has happened to the marketers who use(d) such tactics.

    So, do you guys think taking advantage of the post-pay option is the same as taking advantage of the coupon promo credits. Thank you all in advance for your replys. I look forward to them.

    Peace
