It really depends on who you're repping for. If you're just a shill "product champion" for a message board, it won't do you much good. Use it to network and build relationships.

There are lots of rep gigs for other industries that are actually a great way to earn a living. Being a supp rep can boost your resume, allow you to advance a career, and deliver you some outstanding changes in life. You have to use it to your advantage in more ways than free supps.
A really good point Irish Cannon. Thanks for the advice.
