A recent email from Capital One stated “Simply ask your friends and family to apply for a Capital One consumer credit card, and for every approved and activated new account (up to 12) both you and your friend will earn a $25 statement credit referral bonus”.
Amboy Direct has a “refer-a-friend” program that gives the new customer referred $25.00 when he/she opens an Amboy Direct Savings Account, and the referring depositor $10.00.
Wachovia Bank reports that, under its Customer Referral Program, “When the person you refer opens a new personal checking account at any Wachovia Financial Center we'll send both of you a $25 Wachovia Visa Gift Card”.
ING used to have a referral program, but I could not find it mentioned on the website.
If you are interested in applying for a Capital One (“what’s in your wallet?”) credit card, an Amboy Direct savings account, or a Wachovia personal checking account, and you do not know of anyone who can refer you under these programs, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org (with THE WANDERING TAX PRO in the “Subject Line”) and I will be glad to refer you.
It will be nice to finally make some money from this blog.
