Sounds like a scam doesn’t it? Yep I thought so too. But seeing as I’ve been a part of it for over 5 years now, I can prove it’s not. I earn anywhere from $40 to $60 a month sending in junk mail and email. And I’ve helped one of my staff members, my best friend and cousin all earn around $20 to $40 a month. Depending on how driven they are during that month.
SBKC AKA Small Business Knowledge Center is the name of the company. Ask yourself, Are Your Mailbox and Email Inbox filled with Solicitations and Junk Mail? You’re invited to participate in a long-term Market Research Study of Direct Mail and Email Marketing received by consumers. In other words, we want to compensate you for sending us all of the direct mail and email you might normally just throw away!
SBKC also now is seeking people from Canada. (Be sure to be signed up with the email address you want the invite to go to.)
SBKC now pays via VISA Gift Cards that will be sent to your mailing address once a month. They are not re-loadable cards, and the website is written on the back to track your balance.

BONSUES CHANGE MONTHLY!
As you can see the list is extensive. I have a excel doc of over 450 links that Pat, my best friend, my cousin, and I all signed up for to insure our month earning status. Anywhere from $20-$60 a month. If you would be interested in this, please contact me for a PayPal payment of $25. I update it often with new links so by the time you purchase it the list may be larger. As SBKC keeps expanding, example most recently they added solar power, energy, and gas, so those too have been added to the list. Most of the things in the excel doc are for email, but emails are often times worth 100 points each. If you sign up for everything, you WILL earn a $20 gift card a month, and have points for next month.
TIPS: When you decide to join I highly recommend getting a brand new email address, and using that email address ONLY for the SBKC content. I forward some 300 emails a day to SBKC, and send about two to three envelopes full a month. You send them the ads that come every Tuesday as there are cable and insurance ads in those. Also to save some time download Roboform: http://www.roboform.com/?affid=a1701 Then you can just click the button to fill in all 430+ forms. You do not send email that you know, and they know is spam, IE fake items of what they are asking for. You will not be paid for point blank spam. Just real mail, and you’d be surprised all the things that send daily emails if you sign up for them.
Mail too important to let go? Write return on the piece in question and they will send it back.
If you have any questions, please contact them directly either via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at (312) 546-4922. Your inquiry will be answered promptly.
- · Must be at least 18 years of age to participate. Participants may only send mail and email that was originally sent to them (you own your mail) and from members of their household with those members’ permission.
