In my continuing effort to keep you all up to date on the state of rewards programs, here is an interesting article about incentivized sites.

"Incentivized" is what SR is continued to be. Though I think it is in a lot of ways different than this article. This article seems more geared toward the sites that say "Get a *Free $125 Gift Card" and then you have to sign up for a bunch of things that you didn't know you had to sign up for to get it.

Still, a case can be made that rewards sites would fall into this. It's kind of a slippery slope. But the government is cracking down. Bear in mind that as a licensed attorney, I do my absolute best to make sure that NOTHING on SR is fraudulent or illegal. But not all rewards sites are on the up-and-up. And not all of the people that we work with are. So beware...and be aware!
