Get paid $100 for one post?

My wife and I have done posts for PayPerPost on our personal blog from time to time. More for Christmas money, not so much lately. This came up as an opportunity a long time ago but I saved it because it was $100 and I wanted to blog about it. Here is the text from PayPerPost,

Is Free Shipping Really Free?
Newspaper Article Reprint – Offer Amount: $100.00

Opportunity Description –

We’re looking for a reputable retail-, shopping-, or consumer electronics-blog with a Google PageRank of at least 7 to reprint an article by journalist Jill Bauerle about free shipping offers by online retailers. Jill is a reporter with The Union, a newspaper in Northern California.

The article contains about 700 words and features interviews with the CEOs of Zappos.com and Databazaar.com as well as a Wharton Business School professor and a spokesperson for Shop.org.

We have secured syndication rights to the article on behalf of our client Databazaar.com (the article was our idea — we pitched it to The Union and edited it for them). Our version is slightly different and contains links.

You can see The Union’s version of the article here (free registration required):
http://theunion.com/article/20061223/NEWS/112230158

Here is the version of the article we would like you to reprint (minus the synopsis at the top, which you would replace with your own commentary):
http://blog.technolawyer.com/2006/12/is_free_shippin.html

You must reprint the article with all links intact. However, you can change the title and comment on the article if you wish. You can publish the article as soon as today.

Thank you.
