The Daily Ping

We've only had four major designs over our 11 year history.

An interesting new take on the whole “click-for-dollars” or “click-for-points” sites can be seen at 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
