referring friendsWouldn’t it be great if you could make money just by referring friends to your favorite programs?

It would be awesome!!

Well, that’s what today’s post is about. I am going to list out some of the referral programs which are excellent, legitimate and trust worthy.

Referral programs are the ones which give you some extra bonus when you refer someone. This can be a great way to make extra income recommending the products you love. But always remember, refer the programs which you have personally tried or which are highly recommended.

So, how do you get paid?

Whenever someone you referred joins the program, you get paid either in cash, through PayPal, by gift cards or by check. The best way to make money this way is to refer the programs you use, so you know the credibility of the product or brand.


Here goes the list,


Cashback Apps



Ibotta is one of the biggest cash back websites, and apart from getting the cash back for your daily purchases, you can get paid every time someone joins as your referral. They get $10, and you get $5, its a win win.



I think Rakuten has the best referral program in the cash back sites category. Apart from being the most used and trusted cash back site used by millions, this site gives you $5 for every referral and they get $10 as a joining bonus. That’s cool right!!

You need to keep some things in mind when choosing the programs to refer.

Always refer the programs you love or are highly trusted. It is good to recommend the ones which are reliable so that you continue to make money from them.

Apart from sharing through word of mouth, you can also share these referral links on social media but always declare your affiliation.


This is another fun way to make extra money online that can be done with no extra time while recommending products/services you like.
