Gain Karma

Above subreddits are a good place to rake up some Karma for your account, a higher karma level means a more trusted account. With karma you can also bypass certain restrictions on subreddits. For example. R/aww requires you to have at least 3000 comment karma in order to make a post. Acquiring 3000 comment karma can take months

Drive traffic

The biggest subreddits mentioned above can also be a good source of organic traffic for your personal reddit, website or social media. A commonly used tactic to funnel traffic is to post pictures of cute animals in R/aww to drive traffic to your profile. With a continuous online member count of around 20.000 Redditors you can easily get hundreds of organic visitors per post. The downside is that you need at least 3000 comment karma in order to post on R/aww. 

Bypass karma restrictions

We understand that you don't want to spend your valuable time gaining Karma. It is a long and boring process that can take months depending on your effort. Luckily we have a solution, we are selling accounts with all amounts of karma.
