Virgin Mobile today announced it will soon launch a program called SugarMama that will allow subscribers to earn free minutes in exchange for viewing advertisements. The ads are either 30 second commercials users can watch on their computer or text messages they receive on their phone. In either case the viewer must answer a question by text message in order to receive one free minute per ad watched. There is a limit of 75 free minutes per month. SugarMama will launch on June 14 with ads from Pepsi, Xbox, and Truth.
