I'm a little ashamed to tell you how much I spend on music every month — iTunes and my credit card are now BFFs. So if there were a way for me to get some money back just for buying songs, you know I'd be totally down with that. Enter Popcuts – a new music site that rewards you every time another customer buys the same song you did.
Stocked with emerging indie artists from around the globe, Popcuts knows you like to be on the cutting edge of music and rewards you with credits for buying songs, so the artists get some much needed bankroll, while you eventually get your music for free – sort of. To see how Popcuts works, just

So if you're a music connoisseur and can spot the upcoming trends, you may just bank up a nice amount. Right now, Popcuts offers digital credits, but hopefully soon, can offer to cut you a check for some real dough.
