k, instead of sending this to all my traders, I went ahead and made a topic to refer to. Until we get our FAQ backup, here are the simplest rules for the ultra-n00b. Its not an exhaustive list of everything Freebie, but thats not what I'm going for. Dabbs has a great intro to n00bs thread here which looks much prettier than mine.

To get something for free:

Sign up for a freebie site. But don't just go to the site, ask around for someone paying or trading for referrals (in our case, The Trading Post is where you want to go). Once you find a thread by someone you trust, they will give you their link (Update, now this is done via our Trade Manager). You click the link, sign up, (confirm you are under your referee) and go to the offers part of the site. Find an offer(s) that you like, click it and complete it. This usually entails you giving them your name and address, as well as signing up for a trial offer with your credit card. If you clicked an instant offer, it will credit within 10 minutes. If you didn't, it should credit within a couple days. Once you do get credit, you contact the trader and give him your paypal address or your freebie link. they then do the offer or send you the paypal, and the trade is done. Then you can look for yourself to get refs and when you complete the site, you get your gift or paypal.


For More info on how trading works here on Anything4Free and in our Trade Manager, please see This Thread

The cookie that tracks your offer purchase has to be intact in order to communcate back to the site which will in turn grant you credit for the offer. here is my checklist, others may not agree with all of them, but its what I use at least. Peter also has his guide HERE and Shaggz has a super awesome one HERE.

Cookies:

Open Internet Explorer/Firefox
Go to Tools>Internet Options>Privacy>Accept ALL cookies and turn off popup blocker
Turn off spyware/virus/firewall
Clear cookies and Temp internet files in browser
Close browser
Open browser back up and sign in or register at the freebie site.
Hold cntrl to temporarily turn off any popup blockers, Click the offer, check the open cookies folder to make sure cookies appear
Complete offer.
Wait for credit.


Some of those steps are just me being paranoid, but better safe than sorry is what I always say. The main things is to use IE or FF, make sure you're ACCEPTING all cookies, and make sure you clear cookies before logging in or registering for a new freebie site.

There are plenty of other threads in Freebie University that you could check out for more info, and if you can't find the answer just visit that forum (Freebie University) and click the New Topic link to create a thread where you can ask your questions. smile.gif

Good luck and Welcome!

hey, thanks for the answers you've been giving everyone. They've been a great help. i have a question also. If I want to sign up for a site, vbux apple site for instance, I can find someone who has already joined that site and sign up under them and then do an offer, but then in return they'll do an offer for me, right? But will the offer they do for me be on the same vbux apple site or will I need to have another site for them to sign up to? If I want an iPod for 6 referrals do I have to sign up for 6 different freebie websites in order to get 6 people to sign up for me at vbux apple? Does that make any sense? Thanks for your help.
