I do not use pay-per-click schemes as I’m intensely anti-spam.  Coupon sites that use obfuscation urls or pay-per-click are NOT to be trusted; they’ll get paid whether or not you receive what they promise.

Another way to find ‘legit’ contest/promotions… from existing contests  (yes, it is obvious, but this is the interweb we share with iTards)

You enter the kodak ‘signup for junkmail for a shiny bobble’.. in this case a $15 gift cert.

and think to yourself: “Self, I bet searching for the third level domain would be interesting” and so you do:

wow, that was easy…. too easy?

Yahoo is the only one of the top webmail providers to offer INTEGRATED disposable email service.  Create a new DEA alias for every contest entry: to make it easy to get the goods and ditch the marketing.  Gmail plus addressing is NOT DEA.

It’s as easy as but with fewer features.
