PayPal, $10 Referral & Signup Bonus
Update (Feb. 8, 2021) – This offer is available again.
Original article (Sept. 17, 2020) – PayPal is offering a promotion where you can get a $10 referral bonus when you invite friends to join. People that sign up through a referral link also earn $10 when they spend $5 or more.
PayPal is targeting some people with a referral offer. You can get $10 for every person that you refer, and they can get the same bonus. Here’s how the offer works:
- Send 1 cent now to a friend who doesn’t have PayPal via their email address.
- When they spend or send $5+ by December 31st, 2020, we’ll send you both ten bucks
- Plus you can do this with 5 friends so you could get up to $50.
You can see the promotion details here.
- You may only refer family and personal friends and acquaintances.
- You must not publish or distribute the invitation to participate that you received from PayPal in public locations (online or otherwise) where the audience is likely to include people who are not your family or personal friends/acquaintances. If you do so, PayPal may disqualify you from participation in the Program and any successful referrals will be void, in PayPal’s sole discretion.
Easy way to make some money if you can refer some people who don’t have PayPal accounts. That’s pretty rare nowadays though. Also pay attention to the fine print. Sharing your referrals publicly is not allowed. It is only meant for referrals for friends and family.
