Update: As of October 14, 2011, the referral bonus is only $1, so it is no longer the deal that it was!
Everyone has been writing about TripAlertz and how you can get a $10 referral bonus every time your friend and family sign-up using your referral link.
For example, if 20 people sign up using your link you get $200 in credit on TripAlertz.
I wasn’t going to write about this since everyone else had (I did tweet about it, though, so follow me to get updates on all the deals!), but Million Mile Secrets reader Sean emailed me about it and asked if he could use my referral link.
Since I wouldn’t have written this post if Sean hadn’t emailed me, I thought it only fair to use Sean’s referral link in the post.
The great news is that your friends and family only have to sign-up using your link and do NOT have to purchase anything making this a great deal!
Read that again – your friends only have to sign up for email for you to get the $10 credit!
TripAlertz is like Groupon where, for a limited time, you can get deeply discounted travel deals. Of course, not all the offers are good deals, but you may be able to get those travel packages for free or much less than the posted price because of the $10 referral credit.
Here’s how to sign-up:
Sign in to TripAlertz using Sean’s referral link.
The website is a bit buggy, so it may look like nothing is happening after you enter in your email adress and password, but it most likely has registered you.
Just try logging in with the same username and password you used to sign-up!
Click on the “Invite Friends, Travel Free” in the orange box on the top right and enter the information to generate your own referral link.
Send your referral link to your friends, family and collegues, and ask them to sign up.
Post your referral link on Facebook or on Twitter as well!
Everyone should be able to get at least 5 people to sign-up so that’s $50 in travel credits on TripAlertz!
However, the credit is valid for only 2 years and has to be used on the travel packages. You can’t use the credit for regular hotels or air fare.
For about 2 minutes work, you could get quite a lot of $10 referral credits and have Big Travel with Small Money.
Disclosure: I don’t get paid by TripAlertz or Sean for the links in this post.
