Textbooks Not Always Cheaper Online!

According to a recent study by the Florida Office of Program Policy & Analysis and Government Accountability textbooks are not always cheaper when you buy online.

They found that students purchasing new college textbooks online saved an average of only $2.15 per item. It also states that students are facing a great risk buying their books online, because of unknown, unidentifiable sellers. The article can be found at: Marketwatch

The article is pretty revealing and worth reading.

Freebies Galore!

So I am going to devote an entire post explaining how these freebie sites work, you know the ones that you see around saying FREE Ipod, Free XBox 360, Free PS3, and etc. Well they are a great way to get some hot items for free but many sites offer cash as well. It can become a nice lucrative side business.
Well there are a lot of sites to choose from, but I have stuck to a select few that are proven. Here are the ones I am working on at the present.

Free XBox 360 Elite!

Free Playstation 3

Free I Stuff

Free Ipod Touch

Free Digital Cameras

Free Video Ipod

Forcebucks (Cash, Xbox, PS3, Wii, Iphone)

Cash Prize Oasis (Just cool hard cash! Can Cash out with just 1 Referral!)

How do I get something for free?

Almost all freebie sites work the same way :

  1. Create an account at the Freebie Site
  2. Try an advertiser's offer.
  3. Refer a certain number of people to sign up using your "referral link".
  4. Get your freebie in the mail! Shipping and Handling included!
Where does the Freebie Site get the money to pay for the freebies? Freebie Companies get PAID by advertisers to direct new customers to their offers. Every person who signs for a freebie must complete an "Offer" - and the companies who provide the offers will pay the Freebie Site for referring new customers. The average amount that an Advertising Offer will pay for a signup is $40-$50. Remember, advertising is expensive, and if the Offer Company can get a new customer out of the deal, it is worth it!

How do the Freebie Sites make a PROFIT?

The Offer Companies pay about $40-$50 to the Freebie Site per signup. You'll notice that we mentioned referrals. To get your freebie, you will need to get some people to sign up using your "referral link". This is a special web link which will allow people to sign up for the same freebie as you - and you will receive a credit for each person who signs up using your link and does an offer! Once you have the required number of people signed up, you will get your freebie. If everyone who signed up for the Freebie Site completed all the requirements (tried an offer and referred enough people), then the Freebie Site would break even and wouldn't make a profit. So how are they making money?

The Freebie Site makes money when they don't have to give a freebie to someone who signs up. This can happen for a few different reasons :

  1. Someone signs up and does an offer, then forgets about the site.

  2. Someone signs up and cannot get enough referrals.

  3. Someone signs up and breaks the rules.
So basically say 1 person signs up and gets 3 more people to sign up under them. More than likely only one person will finish the site and get their free reward. Most people tend to just give up because they think it's too hard. I won't lie to you it takes some work but hey if it didn't it would be a scam! We are talking about getting free cash or some of the hottest items free!

If you do think that it's too hard well then keep moving, because honestly it just takes a little time and effort and you will be enjoying the fruits of your labor! I use Myspace, Facebook, and other social network sites to promote my links and get referrals. Colleges are the goldmines though and with a classic paper campaign you can expect to finish a site in a week easy! Also if you contact me I can help you out with anything you need answered. So all you have to do to get started is choose which site you want to do and click on my link! You can do all of them if you want but you can only sign up for each site once. So here are the sites again!

Free XBox 360 Elite!

Free Playstation 3

Free I Stuff

Free Ipod Touch

Free Digital Cameras

Free Video Ipod

Forcebucks (Cash, Xbox, PS3, Wii, Iphone)

Cash Prize Oasis (Just cool hard cash! Can Cash out with just 1 Referral!)

Another Freebie Offer!

This is another site that you can earn many different free items through social networking. Here is how it works.

Click Here for Forcebucks

How Does It Work?

Welcome to the wide world of ForceBucks, where all our members get great products and cash for free! Yes, that’s right. ForceBucks gives ALL our members FREE products and cash. You don’t have to spend a nickel. EVER! We even ship the prize to you for free. Sound good?

A site like ours is mainly a result of the exploding trend in online advertising and marking (some call it incentive marketing). Traditionally, large vendors would hire sales people to get their products out to the public and get people to sign up for free trials. Guess what–we don’t do sales people. The vendors and advertisers pay us to get the customers and we share the money with people like you and your friends. This money is how we give the great stuff that we do away! It’s easy, its even fun, what are you waiting for? Read on!

So how does this work? What’s the catch?

No catch. It’s simple really.

* First, you choice the gift you want to receive for free.

* Second, you try one or more of our pre-selected, easy online offers. Most of them are free, take only minutes to complete, and credit instantly.
* Third, just refer some friends! You get your friends to select a gift and offer through your referral link. The number of friends you need to sign up varies from gift to gift. Some items take 1 referral, some take up to 14. It really depends on the cost of the item you are going to receive from ForceBucks. Despite what some people may think, this step is actually the easiest, and in most cases only takes about one hour total time! Not bad for a brand new Wii, huh?

Let’s do a recap:

1. Pick your Prize

2. Complete the Offer

3. Refer your Friends

4. Get your Prize

Once you have completed these steps, we will ship your order out promptly, just like you ordered your free product on any other online store. The only difference is, here, you won’t be paying a dime. Shipping is also 100 percent free! So, what are you waiting for? Don’t miss out, and sign up on ForceBucks today!

Get a Free XBOX 360 Elite or $480

Well my goal is to help college students survive college. I am not talking about the academics side of things, but rather the social and economics side of college life. I am currently in college myself and have learned many different ways to attain the things I wanted even though I was a poor college student.

Well for my first money making tip that actually produces and works. Freebie Sites! Everyone sees them and everybody thinks automatically SCAM! Well there are scams out there but I have done extensive research and have learned which ones are legit. In the beginning I am just going to provide one to get you started. First you have to understand how these work and then you have to truly appreciate the opportunity that lies before you. The fact you are in college provides a huge opportunity for you to network. Over 80% of college students already belong to some social networking sites. That translates to an incredible opportunity to make money with very little effort! Well here we go, here is the first opportunity!

Feel free to ask any questions you might have and I can explain how these work or give you helpful tips and ideas on how to promote your own program!

The following site allows you to pick your prize from several 360 Elite Bundles or $480! I also have another site that lets you choose several cash options or prizes. The links are above! Just please make sure you follow all guidelines.

Here are the quick and easy steps

Step 1: Click on the referral link below.


Step 2: Choose which Xbox package you want FREE
(I have listed all the package types below for your convenience)

Step 3: Sign up and choose an account type
(Referral method is the easiest and best option)

Step 4: Complete just one offer.
(You must complete 1 offer. Click on ‘Most Popular’ and you will see the best offers. There are plenty of cool offers to choose from such as Blockbuster online, Netflix, Gamefly and more which are services you would regularly sign up for anyways and their all secure networks, why not use them to get a free Xbox 360 Elite or cash! Alot of them offer risk-free trials, and come from legitimate businesses, so you don't have to worry about being scammed. I personally signed up for Blockbuster. I never have to go to the Blockbuster store again! This is NOT like other sites where you need to complete one offer on 2 or 3 different pages, or complete many offers to qualify. You only need ONE, and a lot of these offers are FREE trials with nothing else to buy... and No commitments!!!

Step 5: Refer friends, family or strangers to do the same thing
The number of people you have to refer depends on which free package you want. I am getting the Xbox Elite package, so I only had to refer 12 people. Posting an ad like this one will net you fast results. You can post it on your MySpace, facebook or blog or personally tell your friends to sign up by word of mouth. The choice is yours. The Xbox's are paid for by companies who compensate advertisers for providing them with new customers (you & me).

Step 6: Receive your Xbox 360 Elite.
This is the best part!! You don't even pay for shipping!! Honestly there is no reason not to try it. I wouldn't be wasting my time if this didn't work. I don't work for some company trying to sell you something. I'm just a guy trying to get a free Xbox and show other people how to do the same.

THIS IS NOT A SCAM! It is 100% real. But you don't have to take my word for it, feel free to do your own research! The company behind the deal is Transcendent Innovations or TraInn for short, and you can read testimonials at the link below:


Need more proof? Looking for more reviews? Search “Transcendent Innovations Proof” or “TraInn Proof” on Google!

This method is probably one of the easiest ways to make money online out there and it is perfect for the students!

Just click below and you're on your way!

FREE XBOX 360 Elite
