Alright people, we are looking to move a little money around in the NFL Pick’em group. SMASH’EM and I came up with a little pool that would take place every week. Everyone would put in $5 (or whatever we can all agree on) and person with the highest score for that week takes the entire pot. Now since most of us never see each other, we have to find an alternative to physical currency exchanges. The answer is PayPal. Most online users have PayPal accounts now (and if you don’t, it’s free to sign up) and it’s super easy to transfer money from account to account, so it makes sense to go with this system. You also get a free $5 when you sign up so your first week of losing is actually free. Of course, you don’t have to be included in the pool if you don’t want to, but I’m thinking it will be a lot more interesting (and a lot more fun) if you do decide to do it.
Questions? Comments? Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
By the way, it takes a couple of days to set up a PayPal account, so if you want to join next week’s pool, I suggest you hurry and sign up.
