Varying Info when Signing up offers

I just have a general question regarding the system structure for getting credited.

Assume that I want to sign up for a new incentive site. I put in my name, email, and shipping address and search for an offer to complete.

Assume that I find an offer that I imagine a relative would appreciate trying out more than me..for example a hair solution for my father (heh).

When signing up for the offer, am I permitted to use my father's credit card/billing info? In that case, he is legitimately trying the offer but I get the credit.

In other words, what is exactly tracked for these sites? Shipping info, billing info, or email only? I assume billing info cannot be shared. And do you think it is the same method of tracking for all sites?

Thanks again,


PS. Yes, I tried the search function and couldn't find a direct answer to this.

You must understand how much this sounds like fraud, despite what you might claim.

Why don't you sign up for your father, using your info? Surely you don't need a hair solution...

Yeah I understand how it can be fraud..which is why I want to know the system better before I am claimed as fraudulent.

I'll give another example of something that would make my life easier but be considered fraudulent

I live at a temporary address (1 year lease) different from my billing address (permanent residency). Therefore, I would like items shipped this temporary address since I currently reside there. But to sign up using a credit card, I MUST use my billing address which doesn't match (Unless I go through the inconvencies of changing billing address..but thats annoying.)

Similar to the first post, the addresses don't match and I may be red flagged because I have a different shipping address than billing address.

Any takes of this situation now?

I think your billing address and your shipping address can be different. This, however, may not work for all offers.
