Companies and brands use different schemes and policies for marketing and promotion of their products. One of them is the “Refer and Earn” policy. Here, if you refer something to your friend, both he and you will be benefitted with some free coupons or discounts. You can refer a mobile network, a website or a mobile phone app to a friend.

Let’s start with the mobile networks. Virgin Mobile is giving free referral amounts if your friend joins with your referral. The amount is $25 per friend. Like this, you can earn upto $500 a year. The maximum number of friends you can invite is 20. Just be careful that you share the proper link and your friend signs up using your coupon code only. Refer Lycamobile to a friend..once he or she signs up and recharges their new sim cards, you get an extra $5 credit.

By joining the Google Apps Referral Program, you can receive US $ 7.50 for every friend who joins using your link. is another genuine site offering upto 40$ per referral. It’s a site making online shopping smarter.

Uber Cab is giving $20 off on the first ride if you sign up through a friend’s referral. The referrer will also get the same. Dropbox is giving free space of 500 MB per referral and one can earn upto 16GB while Airbnb, the vocational homes and apartment rentals is also following the refer and earn policy.

Apparel Referral Program by the Clymb has a two-sided advantage i.e. both the referrer and referee get $ 25 off. Amuze’s referral program will you allow to purchase shoes and bags at $25 off! Fashion Referral Programs by Erin Condren allows you to refer an infinite number of friends and there is no minimum amount of billing for the offer to be valid. And if you wanna buy some designer sneakers, Greats is giving $ 10 to the referred friend as well as advocates.

Paypal literally used to give money to people for referring. Referrals helped PayPal in achieving 7 to 10% daily growth.

Evernote has gained millions of users through its referral policy. It gives people additional space and/or Premium Membership. The speciality of this referral is one has to sign in, not sign up which is obviously easier.
