Start a Raffle!
Someone should organize a rebate point raffle. 50 rebate points per entry. 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes.

The person that previously organized raffles got lots of tips.

Ok, this is my idea: since covid blocked sales, i don't expect this to be the best of raffles. Raffle will end once the 100$ is reached. 3 winners: 50$, 30$ and 20$. On general demand, we can increase to 120$ or more and add 10$ winners.
The 2nd post of the thread will be used to show and update daily the participants and their entries. So, there should be no problem there
I wont be participating with either of my accounts (philipvdb or rosemm).
As it is tradition, ther will be a cookie jar. Just don't put anything in it if you have a problem with it.
Winners will be picked using an oneline raffler the day after 100$ is reached at 6pm gmt+1, my time zone.
If there exist an one line raffler that allows you to record it pls let me know. If not, maybe i'll make a vid of it and post it on youtube.
Comments?

Every previous organiser of raffles has had accusations of cheating/scamming etc. Doubt anyone could be bothered.

No, someone should organize rebate point bank to deposit them when you don't need them and lend them when you do.

That is entirely based upon trust. How would you determine if someone is trustworthy or not?

I could do one if there is a demand. Airwinny got away with it so why not.

Raffle runners rewards themselves by stealing from the pot. Trust dramatically deteriorates after each event.
Banker would earn from being honest and taking his interest rate only. Trust grows with each customer helped.

That's the reason only lower classes participates in real world mafia-run raffles, while virtually everyone is using banking services.

My problem is not with the banker. Suppose i deposit 6 rebate points and afterwards lend 4. How can you be sure that i ever will repay the 4?
