Don't Pass Up Free Referral Money

We've all seen the DirecTV commercial with the play on 'Speed Dating.' "Do you want to make 50 bucks the easy way?" While the commercial was annoying long before the 100th time I saw it, the point should not be forgotten. When I signed up for DirecTV I knew at least 10 families who had DirecTV service. Many of them knew I was planning to get DirecTV. It was only after I was a customer that I found out about the referral program. Had I simply stated when signing up for service that I was referred by my friends with account #: xxxxxx, we both would have received a total of $50 in bill credits. Instead, since no one mentioned this to me, we all passed up on free referral money. It is really quite sad to see how many companies offer free referral money, and then to know how many times service is obtained without anyone getting a referral bonus.

When you are planning to sign up for new service with a company that a friend or family member already has service with, check to see if the company offers referral bonuses. Some that definitely do:
I have personally taken advantage of the offers through DirecTV, Cingular (now AT&T wireless) and a Citi card. So, using this frugality tip may benefit you, or at least a friend. Don't pass up free referral money!

Oh, and by the way, if you need someone to refer you to DirecTV, AT&T residential, or AT&T Wireless let me know, I'd be glad to give you the referral info needed to get the credit!

James,

GREAT article and a great reminder of how often we leave "free" money on the table.

Another one that I just started is with ingdirect online banking. If you refer a friend and their initial deposit is $250 or more, they get a $25 bonus in their account, and you get $10.

IF YOU WANT TO OPEN AN ACCOUNT, LET ME KNOW!

DirecTv keeps extending their referral credit program. I have had a couple of friends use my account number to get the $50 discount. If anyone wants to use me as their friend they are very welcome. All they'll ask is for my account number, which is 051312525. You'll get a $10/month for the 1st 5 months. Great deal!

I can also vouch for the DirecTV referral program. It is up to $100! Feel free to call me a friend and I certainly will be if you use my account # when you sign up (39786941). Plus, in my opinion DirecTV is by far the best television service out there. Comcast is garbage.

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I'm with no money problems now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Turn to my blog to get additional info.
