How many references do you have for future clients?

Whats your policy on references? 

How many do you offer when asked?  Do you use the same or do you rotate?  Will you offer any spiff to the client providing the reference for their time/trouble?

I have 3 that I will offer when asked.  I don't pay anything for these.  These are long term clients who I take care of anyway.

Having 3-5 is a good place to be with references.  I only make them available upon request.

On request only and only 3

I have on my proposals that references are available on request.  I have at any time 4 that I've received permission from.  I'll usually give 2 at a time.  To be honest, I don't get asked to often for references.

Zero. Look at my work, and talk to me about your needs. If that's not enough, someone else's comments aren't going to help.
