Prospective More Applicants... Referral bonus!

Postby Ratfacedudeguy » Wed Jul 11, 2012 4:00 pm

Hey guys. It just occurred to me that as credit card forum members we are not fully tapping an underutilized resource. Discover has a referral bonus program set in place where if you refer a friend who opens a card, both you and the friend get a $50 sign up bonus. Not bad if there are no other special current promotional offers and especially good for students.

So this is my proposal. Prospective applicants: Anyone you see on the forums who has a Discover More card, myself included, PM one of us your email address so that we can hook you up with the referral bonus by sending you the referral email before you apply. All you need to do is make the first purchase with the card and you get the $50 bonus. Sure it's no Chase Sapphire Preferred $500 signup bonus, but if you were thinking about applying already, what's wrong with some extra free cash right?

I'm not sure if this referral program applies to Discover's other cards as well, so any holders of different Discover accounts feel free to chime in.
