$75 for Free - Coinbase Conga

Hey FT'ers,

Re-post of a GREAT deal I found on the deals group of Skynet (contact me if you'd like to be added to this group for immediate notification of future deals):

I just signed into Coinbase and was greeted by this incredible deal for less than 5 minutes of work:

Screenshot of the deal: http://i.imgur.com/pDpdAqx.png

They are paying $75 for every referral who buys $100 worth of Bitcoin! A total steal. Once your friend completes their transaction, you'll have $75 worth of Bitcoin, or you can exchange your Bitcoin back to USD and into your bank account (3-4 days to transfer).

Bonus hack: Have your friend use a credit card with no foreign transaction fee to buy the Bitcoin in British pounds. You'll be paid out 75 pounds, which is about $115.

So, let's get this party started! First to the party, join here:

So the risk is basically on the person you refer, as I'm not really guaranteed to have the same offer for me to post back here, right? And then I'd just have bought $100 of Bitcoin for nothing? Just wondering if the referral deal is pretty universal...

Deal is universal, see their blog post here: https://blog.coinbase.com/2015/08/20...from-25-to-75/

The invite link is available instantly upon making an account.

Keep in mind, this conga will move pretty slowly, as it takes a few days to add a verified bank account, then it can take up to 4 business days for the bitcoin buy to go through.

Since the referral information page is locked behind a sign-in page, i'll post the main details here:
  • Start by visiting the referrals page. From this page you can copy your referral link or send an invite email to a friend.
  • Your friends can click the referral link (or the link in the email) and sign up for a Coinbase account.
  • They will then complete their account and buy bitcoin in one of our supported countries.
  • If your friend visits coinbase.com/buys and purchases $100 USD or more (or 100 EUR, or 100 GBP, or 100 CAD, 100 SGD) of bitcoin, you will receive $75 (or 75 EUR, or 75 GBP, or 75 CAD, or 75 SGD) of bitcoin when the buy completes. Buys can take up to 4 business days to complete.
  • The referred customer must have signed up after clicking your referral link (and if they clicked multiple referral links they must have clicked your link last).
  • The purchases must take place on coinbase.com/buys, the referral program does not keep track of exchange volume.
  • Referral bonuses are only paid if the person you referred verifies their account and buys $100 of bitcoin or more. The buy has to complete (meaning the bitcoin is delivered). Buys can take up to four business days to complete. The amount can be a cumulative $100 (it can happen over multiple purchases). The payout will typically arrive about 10 minutes after this.
  • It can take some time for payments to go out, and they may not arrive immediately.
  • We check for duplicate or fake accounts and don't pay out referral bonuses on these accounts.
  • Cashing out: "When you sell bitcoin, it will take 2-4 business days for the USD to reach your bank account."

Luckily there's a way around it, you can change your country after they verify an id.
$100 spend on the way and here's my link: https://www.coinbase.com/join/55f9d9ed8331aa3d5c000115

I would stay far away from this place, as they changed the terms of the deal after everyone had started with the $75 bonus, and only paid out the $10 bonus even though all of the steps they asked for were completer before they changed the deal. They are slow when it comes to buying bitcoins, they have miniscule limits for buying, and they change the terms of the bonus program and refuse to pay out the bonus. I have read many stories the last few days online about how they refuse to honor the terms of their referral program in the past, and now I can confirm that and have a story to add to it. I have closed out my account with them, removed all my information from their webpage, and will stick to buying bitcoins from more reputable places in the future, such as circle. I would stay far away from them, its not worth the hassle even for the $75 they promised but didn't deliver, needless to say for the $10 bonus.

Has anyone received the bonus either 10 or 75 $/€/? I have made my purchase and am waiting for confirmation of the bonus crediting to that person's account. My link was used and I'm figuring the person is making the purchase and am awaiting credit of the bonus.

The person's link I used did get a 10$ bonus when it should have been 75$ as of Nov 4th
