June email push/thank you promo

I was told today that we have to start asking every customer to get there email and to give the Thank You card to every customer who rents anything. I got around 30 emails, but kept forgetting to scan that pesky second barcode that is supposed to give us that 1.00 payout.

Does the process require them to respond to an email? Because otherwise all you have to do is type a random email into every single account you see...you don't even have to tell the customer. I used to do it all the time.

A week before the payout will come, we will probably get a message saying "we really would of liked to give out $1 per email but due to circumstances we can only give 25 cents" - The Blockbuster Way

The program guide says that the emails must be valid, so no you can't just make it up. Am sure once the drive ends, Dish will send out something to all the emails, and whatever bounces will not count. I advise that you don't make up emails, you can potentially get yourself in trouble, and prevent others from making an honest dollar.
