PayPal Referral Bonus: Refer A Friend & Both Earn $10

Update 2/7/21: Deal available again. Hat tip to FM

The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • PayPal is offering existing users $10 when they send 1¢ to a friend without PayPal, if they send up and link their bank account/debit card and spend $5+ by December 31 both you and them will receive a $10 bonus

 

 

The Fine Print

  • Limit of $50 in referral rewards
  • You may only refer family and personal friends and acquaintances. Additionally, 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.

Our Verdict

Please do not share your referrals in the comments as the terms of the offers specifically mention not sharing it publicly. Standard referral bonus previously was $5. Personally think it will be difficult to find somebody without a PayPal account these days but good bonus if you know of somebody without one already.

Is there anything that prevent someone from opening another account to get the bonus?

Never got the bonus when I did this in December. PayPal customer service just sucks so I didn’t waste my time contacting them. Don’t waste your time with this deal!

Had a very hard time to contact PayPal for the rewards supposed to come but haven’t. Only got $10 for referrer, won’t do it again.

Theoretically this should work with a BB card linked as bank account?

Not worth it, they will never give u the money, I know atleast 10 buddies who also did not receive the bonus.

If the invited user sends $5 to me instead of “spend” it, will it trigger the offer?
