Getting referrals – it’s bloody hard work!

(I originally wrote this in September 2017 in our Facebook group) I’d like to talk about referrals (again) At least once a week someone tells me that the reason I make so much money on survey sites is ‘because you have referrals’, ‘with referrals it’s easy’ etc. And it makes me kind of mad. In August 2017 I got 204 referrals on Swagbucks, over 250 on Mintvine and over 100 on Prolific. It was my best referral month so far […]

Swagbucks – November Referral Bonuses are in!

One of the things that I love about Swagbucks is their Referral Bonuses. If someone you refer earns 300 qualifying Swag Bucks during the calendar month they join, both they and you get a 300sb Bonus. So, if you get 30sb referral earnings from your referral in the same month they join, you should receive a Bonus the following month (around the 5th/6th usually) And today they’re in! So if you referred someone in August and they earned over 300 qualifying sb, you […]

An open letter to Prolific Academic

*** EDITED TO ADD: Credit where credit is due, Prolific reached out to me not only here but also on Reddit, Facebook and by PM and email, and their response was brilliant. They hadn’t removed posts on Reddit at all, there was a delay in them showing and I jumped the gun – sorry guys! I have to say they’ve been fantastic in trying to resolve this – the referral system is back up and running and it sounds as […]

Swagbucks minitip – How do I get my 300sb bonus from my referrals?

Most months, Swagbucks has a bonus scheme whereby if your referrals earn 300 qualifying sb in their first calendar month (eg the calendar month in which they sign up, not their first 30 days) both you and they get an extra 300sb around the 5th/6th of the following month. (If they also spend £25 via Shop and Earn, you’ll both get an extra 200sb, making 500sb) This is why I always say it’s better to get your referrals as early […]
