After a busy week I am back here.

TDAmeritrade Update:
TD Ameritrade offer is still available. If you have 10k cask and you want to make a quick safe return of around 9% in this volatile stock market, this is the best thing to do. And as always if you need referral please contact me or post a comment here. I can split the referral with you :-)

Wengo Free 2 mins Call:
I am still using the free 2 mins call from wengo. Had few problems with their software, but their beta version is working fine so far.
Again there is another offer with wengo which gives you free unlimited calls to India(in addition to other countries) if you signup before June 30th or whenever they meet their goal.
if you spend 10 Euros to signup you can get free unlimited calls for 2 months. we may sigup for this at the end of this month, that way you can maximize the free calls :-)

Free 2 minutes voip call to india:
Hello everyone,
I just found from FatWallet about this voip service. Wengo voip has a promotion that gives free 2 mins call to india along with other countries.
And they also have another offer where if you signup and pay 10 British Pounds (approx 18.8 US $'s) you will get unlimited calling for 2 months.
I just signed up and tried the 2 mins call to india and the quality is awesome and infact I made over 10 calls just to try out.
Please check it out and post your comments.

My First Easy Money Post to make $500 with little effort:
TD Ameritrade is running a promotion now where it is fairly easy to get a nearly risk free $500.

  • Sign up for a new account
  • Fund it with at least $10,000 (that's the one big catch) and you get 45 days of free equity trades (online only).
  • To qualify for the free $500, you must reach Apex status within the first 3 months of opening the account. This requires an average of 5 trades per month over a 3 month period. So, buy and sell 1 share of some stable dow industrial stock 15 times in a row one day (thus reaching your average of 5 per month for 3 months), the trades are free so at worst you lose a couple bucks from tiny minute by minute price changes.
  • Final result is a free $500 (minus a few dollar loss due to share fluctuations) and Apex status for the next 3 months which means you get free Level II quotes and some other goodies.

After the above steps are done, you have to request TD customer service for Apex status, and at that point they will post $500.

Please note that in order to keep $500 you have to keep your TD account active for atleast 9 months. So you can trade stocks if you want from this account or if you want your money SAFE you can buy a CD that give a return of 5% from TD Ameritrade. good luck.

If you want me to refer you please contact me.
