I received some referrer rewards from this program, but one of my cards I added to my digital wallet is nowhere to be found. I have contacted tango and davinci payments to no avail, and am now contacting penfed to try to have my gift card reissued. Has anyone else had this problem with their virtual visas?

Are existing cardholders going to be notified that a fee has been added? If they don’t notify, they can’t charge it, right? Possible some are grandfathered?

If they do charge the fee, Is it worth the bother of opening up a $500 checking account to make the card fee-free?

All referral links say the referral program has ended

I just checked and my $100 credit posted on 2.7.21 with a transaction date of 2.4.21. It took exactly 2 weeks after I made the initial $100 AA gc purchase so no need to worry if the credit doesn’t post right away.

All the referred / referee rewards came in today. I had given up the hope after getting bounced around few weeks back. Had called them/ emailed them/ and secure messaged them too. This was schweet program !!

A date timeline would be useful.

All folks were referred in last week of Dec and First week of Jan. showing how others got their referral bonus quickly, I called them up in mid Jan. Got canned response of we will get back to you. Then Crickets. Emailed them via rewards website. More Crickets. Didn’t wanted to spend too much time on this..Decided to let it go. And, then finally emails came in today

I just emailed them so I guess we’ll see what happens. I got approved in early Jan.

Prepaid Visa card redemption is handled by prepaid digital solutions (the same one Swagbucks uses), but “Save for Later” option is not available on these tokens.

Is there a way to get email/text (not mobile app) alerts for CC transactions?

The referral program has ended. William Charles

My link still works?

PenFed: Our referral program has ended
https://penfed.extole.io/

But similar to First Tech, the individual referral link that was generated does not say anything about it. I wouldn’t risk it. ieatdogfood

Good catch. I also clicked on “refer more friends” and view stats link in the email and they say the same thing you pointed out, even though the referral links still appear to work. However I agree with you, not worth the risk.

I’ll have to follow up with my own referee bonus for getting approved for a PenFed CC in a couple of days, if it doesn’t automatically get sent to me. It will pass the two week mark.

Hmmmm… I just got a referral reward today (as a referrer). Still haven’t received mine as a referee. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

ShawntheShawn

Well, since you applied and got approved before they announced ending the referral program, you would have a solid case to fight for the reward if they do not issue it. Hope it does not come to that.

Referral links are officially no longer working. Makes me believe they would honor them if you were able to use them while they were working, similar to how Chase does their slow rollouts.

ShawntheShawn

Nice observation. This could be true!

ShawntheShawn

BTW, I happened to notice your comments on the Sunflower thread. OOS online applications worked?? ieatdogfood

Yes but don’t know about payout yet.

ShawntheShawn

Thank you! I just opened an account without any problem. I did not notice any bonus eligibility languages related to locations, so I am optimistic about the payout. I think it may be a nationwide offer for the sunset checking & savings account, which are the only two account types that can be opened online.

You never know with the smaller banks. We will be the first generation DPs.

DP: loaded $50 to United Travel Bank in late December 2020. Not reimbursement. We can safely rule out UA if you are using the Visa version card.

Same for a 01/01 travelbank purchase. 🙁
