What Exactly is TraInn?
TraInn—formally known as Transcendent Innovations—just so happens to be one of the most mature (longevity-wise) freebie networks out there. TraInn is notorious—and I mean that in a positively good way—for their 1-credit offers. And what’s great about that is that you can green on most TraInn sites with only 1 offer. Now there are good and bad points to TRAINN sites, and I will address them below.

And here’s a list of TraInn sites you can do for referrals as of June 2008:
The Big Cashout Strategy
There are several approaches to completing TraInn sites. Here are 2 great methods.
If you need cash fast, complete all of the sites as a paid referral. It won’t be hard for you to find people to pay you $25 to be a referral on their TraInn site. Do the math: at $25 per site, you can rack up $325 after just 13 sites. But don’t forget: you still have to pay for your offers. If you are relatively new and have not done a lot of offers before, you should be able to complete all of the required offers for about 100 bucks, leaving you a net profit of $225. So with this first strategy, you need 0 referrals and you can pocket $225 once you’ve paid for the offers.
This strategy is for those who can exercise some patience. If you’re willing to wait, you can make a significant profit by doing green for green trading. If you are relatively new and have not done a lot of offers before, you should be able to complete all of the required offers for about 100 bucks . You are going to get referrals for your site by being a referral. See post and tutorials on “Green for Green Trading” for more information on this trading technique. With this strategy, you can work 2 small TraInn sites (require less than 7 referrals for cash-out) or work 1 large TraInn site (require more than 10 referrals for cash-out). Here’s an example. On Yourfreeflatscreen.com, you need 5 referrals for a payout of $250 ($50 per referral). If you’re paying people to be your ref on the site, your profit is less than 50%. Here’s the breakout: to “motivate” people to be a ref for you, your payout should be at least $25 (50% of what you’re receiving). Five people x $25 = $125. That leaves you a net profit of $125—oh and don’t forget to subtract the cost of going green on the site yourself (so your net profit is actually less than $125).
Well, here’s the beauty of the alternate option: green for green. I recommend doing other TraInn sites or sites that you can green with 1 offer. When you hit 5 (as in you have 5 people who are acting as refs for you in exchange for you being a ref for them), you can cash-out for $250. Repeat the steps for any other sites—like Yourfreevideoipod.com, which has a payout of $300 for 6 refs. Once you have your 6 refs, you can cash-out for $300. Your net profit just with these 2 offers is $475: $25 – Payment for greening for someone else . Ultimately, this approach will put you in a better position to pay for referrals and your TR will be higher than most people that complete 12 offers just using Strategy A. What’s more, the likelihood of running into a scammer on your TraInn site is less since the person that’s greening for you has already greened on a TraInn before.
