Our Verdict

We have seen a bonus of up to $300 from Forcht Bank before, so this $100 bonus is not nearly as attractive. That bonus was only available at one branch though so if you’re a student it might make sense to do this deal.

Pei just sent out an email.. referral bonus is now $15 for each person you refer.

“We’re celebrating with Give & Get $15 for you and a friend! Once a purchase at a Pei merchant has been posted, bonuses will be credited.”


Also I confirmed that the requirements are differnet for this ref bonus to credit.

The $15 will only credit once the referral earns their first cash back at a retailer. I’m not sure if this means once the cash back goes pending or once it is confirmed. Previously the ref bonus would confirm 1-2 days after they signed up and linked their card. Now I’m guessing it’ll be 1-2 days after they sign up, link a card, and earn cash back.
