An interesting new take on the whole “click-for-dollars” or “click-for-points” sites can be seen at fatshoe.com. Unlike MyPoints, when you browse sites, take surveys, etc. at fatshoe, you get actual money (starting with $2 for signing up). What’s even more interesting is that they mail you a physical Visa card that they credit the money, too. You’re not limited as to where you can spend the money — if they accept credit cards then you’re good.

The downside right now is that there aren’t a heck of a lot of ways to earn money, yet… and some of the promotions just aren’t worth the time (like getting $1 for registering and placing a bid at an auction site). But, nonetheless, it’s an interesting way to make a little extra cash to put towards a DVD or CD every so often. -ram

Devil's advocate: So Ryan, how much of your personal data do you have to give up to get stuf?

I would like to get Fatshoe dollars to buy new shoes . . . big, fat ones. With fat laces.

Tina--I did not. My shoes are not allowed to be that much cooler than me.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
