offers a sign up bonus, but looks fishy

AdFlasher - Earnings and Advertising in action.Ad Flasher looks like it has potential, but after taking a close look at what Ad Flasher has to offer, some red flags popped up. I am going to share those red flags with you in a little bit.

Ad Flasher offers its free affiliates a 50 cent sign up bonus for joining. You’ll automatically use this advertising in their ad viewer. I apparently already used mine up and didn’t get one single hit from it. There is one red flag for you. I do like that the sign up bonus comes to¬† automatic use and you don’t have to wait for it.

I would like to thank David, an affiliate of, for referring me to this sign up bonus website. David’s referral link is used on this blog post and on the sign up bonus list. Quick reminder, anyone can offer a sign up bonus website to this site, and if I think it will add value to the site, your referral link will be used just for sharing the site with me.

Alright, back to Ad Flasher. One of the first things I don’t like is that Ad Flasher sells referrals. Not only do they sell referrals, they also charge a hefty $5.00 fee per referral they sell. This is pretty high for a referral that might never log into their back office to earn you that money back. That just screams scam in my opinion.

I was able to take a look at how much they charge their advertisers. They charge $4.50 per 1,000 ad impressions. One thousand ad impressions to me is nothing. I think that is really expensive. I would never pay that much money for a measly 1,000 impressions that will probably be gone in an hour.

Ad Flasher advertising prices.

You are only guaranteed 46 click thrus. Now if you do the math on it. Ad Flasher claims to pay their members 10 cents per completed ad view. 10 cents x 46 clicks = $4.60. This means Ad Flasher loses money off their ads because they go 10 cents over. This doesn’t include what they pay 2nd level affiliates.

I even attempted to click on some of their ads to earn some money. None of the ads had timers and my earnings didn’t increase after clicking on the ads.

So there you have it. Ad Flasher may still be a good site and I may be totally out of my mind and wrong on these theories. Nonetheless, Ad Flasher is free to join and try. You may like what they have to offer.

Take a look at some more free advertising bonuses for signing up and get some more free traffic to your sites.
