Thoughts, be it on clearing bonuses at these places with $10 or $20 SNGs, the worthwhile-ness of trying to do so, etc?
I like Full Tilt's bonuses. I play .10/.25 NLHE & 1 or 2 $5 SnG's a day and can clear a $25 bonus in about 3 weeks. Plus, I usually get enough points for a hat or something. Strictly SnG's would probably take longer.
UB's bonuses are kinda tough unless you play $1/$2 rings or more. The SnG promo will end soon. However, the good thing about UB bonuses is that they award you the money as you earn it. You could play 5 hands & quit and they'll give you 8 cents or something. An SnG would give you maybe 5-10 cents or so, depending on buy-in. Not much, but still kinda cool.
To sum up: I think playing strictly SnG's is a tough way to clear a bonus anywhere. Good luck, though.
