Over 100 Websites that Pay You to Refer Friends

One of the easiest ways to make money online is to refer your friends to products that you already use. That’s how most bloggers make a living. And although you need your own site (learn how to start a blog here) to join “official” affiliate programs, there are many programs that offer a referral bonus to anyone. Here are 100+ of these referral programs that pay a commission for every friend you refer!

From cashback shopping portals, to survey sites, to job placement services, every item on this list will pay you to refer friends – anywhere from $0.10 to $5,000! Of course, the programs that pay $5-10 per referral require much less effort on your part than the programs that offer $500+. But if you know the right people, a $500 commission can be very easy to make.

Although they won’t make you a millionaire, many of these services offer a sign-up bonus as well! You can make $175 today – just by signing up for each of the free services offered on this site. Then, you can earn another $100+ for each friend that you get to join these sites. If you know the right people, you can make over $5,000 from referring a single friend.

Before diving into the 100’s of websites, here are a few of my personal favorites:

  • Ebates (cashback shopping): Get $10 after making your first purchase, and receive $5-15 for every person you refer.
  • Robinhood (investing): Get 1 share of stock when you add funds, and another for every friend you refer (this could be any random stock — like Google, Apple, or Starbucks. Potentially worth $700+). The refer-a-friend option doesn’t become available until you have been a member for a little while — so sign up soon!
  • Mannabase (a basic income cryptocurrency): Manna is a new cryptocurrency (like Bitcoin) that offers a Universal Basic Income. Just by signing up you receive free Manna every month. Refer a friend and you both receive 50% more Manna – with a value between $5-50. Plus, this is 100% free for you and anyone you refer!
  • Vital Card is a new credit card that gives you 1% cash back on every purchase plus additional cashback for referring others (down three levels). According to Vital’s current estimates, you could earn about $8/month for every person you refer, $4/month for everyone they refer, and $2/month for everyone that person refers. 

Now, onto the list.

100+ websites that pay a referral bonus

For ease of filtering, I have divided this list into multiple categories. Generally speaking, the easier (and often lower-paying) referral programs are first on the list – with the higher paying referral programs closer to the end.

Finally, if you realize that I’ve missed one – let me know in the comments section below and I’ll join it through your link!

Cashback shopping referral programs

cashback referral programs

Whether you make a purchase from Amazon, Target, Walmart, BestBuy, Expedia, or nearly any other site – if you start from one of these shopping portals, you will immediately receive 1%-10%+ back on every purchase. Not only that, but most of these sites offer a sign-up bonus and they all pay you when you refer your friends! Start sharing these sites with your friends to help them save 5-10% on every purchase they make

Here are some of the most common cashback websites – along with what they offer for referring a friend.

Every year people receives millions of dollars in gift cards that they don’t want. Rather than let them go to waste, they sell them for a discounted rate to these websites – which in turn sell them to you and me for a great price.

All three of these sites are virtually the same, but the rates vary depending on the card. Plus, because they each offer a $5 signup bonus and $5 refer a friend bonus, it’s worth joining all of them!

But some of these survey sites will also pay you to refer friends. So, not only can you get paid to take surveys, but you can also get paid to help your friends get paid to take surveys. Confused yet? In short, you get paid for helping your friends make money.

  2. I noticed you asked if you left any out and you’d use the referral link. I have a couple for you!!!

    My free savings account with Cap1 pays you $20 for every referral that opens with $250 or more (& the interest is good and it’s so much less restrictive than ones I’ve had at my local banks).

    I’m also on a sister site to Inbox Dollars that I use as well as that one & Fusioncash:

    But can tou please add Traffic Hurricane to the website? It’s an awsome website to advertise, but they have a great refferal program aswell! you earn 10% commission on every adpack your refferal buys, Its a BOOMING bussiness!!

    Also they use the Payza Payment Processor, which pays you a $10 for reffering people to the payza website.

    Thanks for reading my post, I hope you add these websites

  5. A great website!
    Please add Clixsense to the website? these is an awsome website to advertise, but they have a great refferal program as well! you earn earn commission on every refferal to the eight level.

  6. I am From Bangladesh.could you please advise me which site will be good For me If i want build referral like you?

    1. Unfortunately I don’t have that information right away – but if you do the research I’m sure that you’ll have a great article you can develop with that information!

  7. Rob I personally want to thank you for the extra help becoming a blogger myself your ideas are great and helpful. Just a few questions. is Money Nomad a brand name or have you ever thought about making it a brand name? When purchasing a website i understand i own that but do i also own the name of my website? For example do you own the title Money Nomads just because its the website title?
    If you would prefer to Email me these answers as i know they are slightly personal id gladly accept. Thank you again for all the help.

    1. Great question Derek! And I’ll shoot you an email. In short, from my understanding, if you’re the first person to use a phrase/term you have a copyright (to a degree). So, someone else couldn’t take the name Money Nomad and use it for something else in an effort to absorb my audience or mimic my site. However, if someone used the name or a part of the name for something else, they wouldn’t get in trouble. This is hard to illustrate with Money Nomad because it’s a unique name, but I think Richard Branson’s “Virgin” brand is a great example. Although he uses it for many different companies, if you were to use it in an unrelated business (i.e. Virgin Olive Oil) you would be fine. However, if you tried to make it look like the brand was associated with Richard Branson, you would get in trouble. Great question though!

  9. I have made great money referring DeCluttr buys used CDs, DVDs, Games and Tech Products. Great way to clean out items you no longer need.

    It is not quite as easy as some of the other companies. You must ask for a referral code and they will email you. But once you have it they pay $10 per referral!

  10. Hi Rob, again thanks for this huge list, just one to add might be Circle Pay, an app that pays you £5 for referring someone and £5 to the person that signs up once they send £25. It’s very similar to Square Cash or PayPal. Here’s my link anyway I’d appreciate it if you could use it so I get the £5 and you get the £5 ?

    1. Fascinating website. Thanks for sharing. I could see a lot of businesses and employees benefiting from the use of refgrid.

  12. One of my favorite referral programs is Rushcard’s. They give $30 to anyone who you refer, and you get a $30 bonus too. So it works out great for both parties. The only downside is you are limited to referring 20 people a year, but hey its still free money. If you want to try my referral link it is

    I would really appreciate it!

  13. Great article, thanks for sharing. These are all great sites to earn a little extra on the side through referral, which is also part of affiliate marketing. Getting more referrals to these sites may pose a bit of a challenge, which is why your own Blog is always a great idea.

    I would also like to suggest one which is Cinchbucks-referral-Program works quite well in comparison to other survey sites who pay user only for first time but cinchbucks gives 10% for lifetime of referrals earning. Users can get promotional materials to run your campaign directly in their user dashboard and easy social media shareable links to simplify marketing thing for user.

    1. An interesting list of services. I don’t generally promote sites that charge — as that’s not a referral service as much as a MLM strategy.
