For those who want to try Facebook for advertising...

You can get a $100 credit for advertising if you use this application:

The Visa Business Network | Facebook

I used it and it worked for me!

Enjoy!

My first reaction was that this would be a phishing scam... but there's legit news associated with it - I'm still a bit cautious:

Visa brings small business networking to Facebook - USATODAY.com

Yeah, my account is accredited and everything. I got an email with the coupon, even though I got the error.

What exactly did I sign up for?

Can it be used in a few months if I sign up now? I'm still trying to get up and running, and I don't have a website to link to.

It took a few minutes for my credit to show also.

Click on the Billinmg Source tabe and it should be there showing the new totals as it is used up.
