Get Ref Description

Get Ref is a referral exchange membership program created and run by an internet marketer who refers to himself only as Jay. This program allows members to earn credits that they can exchange for referral sign-ups to their business opportunities by signing up for other members’ business opportunities. There is a referral system in place as well that allows members to earn credits from the activities of their downlines.

Get Ref Detailed Overview

Get Ref takes traffic exchange programs a step further by being both a traffic exchange and a referral exchange. The program allows you to earn credits by visiting other member websites and by signing up with other member programs as a referral. Credits can be exchanged for visits to your business websites, or they can be given to other members in return for them signing up as referrals in your other programs.

It’s easy enough to earn credits at Get Ref by visiting other member websites, although a lot of the time you won’t find any links to click on. People join this program to obtain referrals, and that’s where you’re going to earn the majority of your credits. When you go into the area where you can join programs to earn credits, you’ll find a list of programs in different categories.

When you click on a program, you’ll see a list of the Get Ref people who are offering credits to get you to sign up with that program under them. You choose one, and then you are taken to the page within the Get Ref program where you’ll look over the information about the program. You can then decide whether you want to choose another program, or agree to sign up for that one. Once you agree, you’re taken to that person’s referral page where you sign up. The person has to accept your sign-up before you get credit, but if everything goes well, that’s not a problem. Of course, you can always purchase credits any time you want as well.

Get Ref Reputation

Feedback on Get Ref is mostly positive, although you have to remember that the main reason people are signing up for programs is because they want credits. If your program is a good enough one, however, the referrals you get through GR could still prove to be beneficial. Some people even go on to a paid gold membership with the program, through which members earn more credits and even cash for referring other paid members.

Getref.com is a useful way to get referral for free

I recently joined Getref.com so that I can get referrals for free. I find the site quite helpful and easy to use.

I promote free money making sites and having some success in getting referrals. However, it's early days.

The way it works is very simple. FAQ section answered all my queries so far. I log on to the site few times a day to earn credits by clicking adverts.

Its AWESOME!

I'm getting refs to get an ipad 2 <3

I can't wait til I finally get it in my hands =]

Its a legit site. ! It's the easiest way to actually get the refs. You do a quick click link and you are done or you can promote your own and have many people visit your link. It's amazing.

One of the better sites

Out of all the referral exchange sites I have used this one ranks among the top. Even though the credits are hard to earn, the people who sign up for mine are quite efficient, they help me earn lots. I rarely have to click ads because of many of them (I still do though). they help me get many payouts within a month, that used to take me about 4 months.

Getref is okay

It went great for me. The only problem was it takes ages for the credits to add up.

It's reliable and it works, that's all you need to know about it and compared to talking people into referrals for your site, not being a scam, this is much easier but maybe not as quick.

Difficult to figure out

This website was very confusing for me to use and it took me a long time to learn how to use it. I started using it so I could get credits for referrals for a website that was giving out free laptops. But in order to get the credits you had to complete a " free offer " but most of them weren't free and required you to include credit card information. I wouldn't recommend this website to anyone looking to get credits for referrals.

Easy way to get referrals

I heave joined getref.com 2 weeks ago. So far I got 5 referrals, 4 of them are active! There are two ways to earn credits here. You can earn credits by clicking ads, or by joining a program which is much faster. Carefully read description before joining programs, some users have hard paying conditions. Generally you must be active for at least 3 days to get credits approved. It sounds strange but spending credits may be harder than earning. Many people are waiting for referrals, so competition is strong here. In order to attract referrals it is not important only how much you pay, it is also important to give good description of programs.

From my personal experience I would recommend everyone to join getref.com, one of easiest methods of getting referrals.

Getref—just what I needed to get referrals

Very confusing site right after I joined them, it took me a long while to figure out how it works despite reading their “how to earn” section. At first I was also asked to join and sign up to other programs in order for me to gain a minimum earning rating of 5 to be able to qualify for the their paid to click. Despite that, this is still a great site to get referrals especially that I am too lazy getting referrals for the paid to click site that I joined. I have spent a lot of time getting referrals by joining paid to post forums but I am quite unlucky on that aspect because I didn’t get referrals at all. This is definitely a good site if you are like me who can’t get a single referral. I am happy using their service and will definitely stick with it until I get enough referrals under me.

I didn't get a single active referral

Get Ref really got me on the hook around five months ago when I happened to find it accidentally. The site was receiving quite some positive feedback and I decided to try it out since there was nothing to lose because the service is free. I have to say that although the site did what it was supposed to do and the concept behind it is pretty good, I wasn't able to get what I was hoping to. I wanted to get some active referrals for several programs but I wasn't able to meet my goal. Right after registering I started to register for some offers and also clicked on some advertisements. It didn't take me too much time to earn enough credits to actually start promoting my links. So just a few hours after adding some sites, I started seeing some new referrals coming from Get Ref and I was quite amazed back then of the fast results. The problem was that those referrals were absolutely inactive and it seems that they registered just to get credited for it. I was never able to make a single cent out of those. It seems that people are just not interested in the offers they see and register for. As a conclusion I will say that if your only goal is to get referrals, no matter active or not, then Get Ref will do the job. If you are actually searching for active referrals, then I am afraid that you will only waste your precious time.

Lost money

I lost money with this site, I am so unhappy with my time and money spent on this site. I am happy to be able to at least voice my opinion about the crappy service this place offers. Honestly you are not going to get a good number of quality referrals through here. Half the referrals that claim to have joined my website never even did and if I mark them as incomplete I lose my rating which in turn ruins your chances of getting people to join. I spent 10 dollars on credits when I first joined so that I could get some referrals right away. All the referrals I received did nothing once they became a member and the others just said they joined and didn't. I lost 10 bucks with this site and I highly recommend you find other ways to get referrals. This is not a scam but it is an awful excuse for a ref website.

Works as well as it can for what it is

Which unfortunately isn't very much. I did get plenty of referrals, but do to the way it's set up, those referrals didn't generally do very much afterward. I can't entirely blame them, either, since I myself didn't generally do much beyond the minimum required. That's the problem, really, with a system like this.

The site itself is fine, but they don't have much control over how well the referrals work out, and for me they didn't, really. I don't use any referral-based strategies these days, but even if I did I would aim for better quality ones than on getref.

Pretty bad!

I joined this site because I thought it sounded like a perfect way to get fast referrals. I thought wrong.

You need to get credits in order to get some referrals on your sites and earning these credits takes quite some time. After spending a lot of time completing offers to get credits, I was able to get several referrals for myself. They joined my sites and I thought that everything went as planned, but after only a few days I noticed that my new referrals were not clicking any ads on my PTC sites. After waiting a few weeks I realized that those referrals had no interest in my PTC sites at all.

Long story short, GetRef can get you new referrals but most likely they are not going to be active ones. At least I never got any active referrals.

It's Useful If You Want Just Signups

My experience with GetRef was mainly neutral. The site was a bit too cluttered for me to browse but I did eventually learn my way around. I joined up because I was looking for ACTIVE referrals... needless to say that's mainly done and over with now days. If I did get a someone, they would just signup and that's it. I still use it time to time but only if I have a program in which I'm not really looking for active referrals.

Really works!

I really like this system! I had been looking for a program like this to help me get referrals. It basically did the advertising to get some referrals for me... What I mean is, I participated in their service and signed up for some other programs (some of which I actually decided to participate in and also helped me make some extra money!) and pretty quickly I saw I too had a few new referrals. Although many of my new referrals weren't very active.. some of them became very active on the site I referred them too and made me some more money! It's a great credit system and works. The only downside I saw was that I am now members at about 20 sites that I don't use, and that's a lot of spam for one email... But that's my fault, not the programs!

Get Ref really gets you refs, and without much effort! If you want something more effective you're going to have to be willing to spend a lot of time. Get Ref has taken me almost no time. Just browse, click, sign up, get credit, get referrals.

B+

Not The Best Referral Program

I have been a member of Get Ref for over 2 years. I join other programs as well as earn points. I have yet to receive an ACTIVE referral for the programs of my choice. I have spent hours earning points only to be disappointed once I did receive a referral. Also I hate that it takes so many points just to be able to earn referrals. There are some people that are doing great with referrals and love Get Ref, but all in all it is not for me. I am a member of a lot of get paid to sites, and I need a lot of active referrals and I thought that I would be able to find them at Get Ref, but I was highly disappointed. I'm not a member of very many referral programs, but Get Ref isn't the best referral program in my opinion.

The idea is good, but

I joined this place over a year ago when someone I met from the forum advised me how this place would help me bring in lots of referrals. She told me the program worked well for her. As I was desperate for referrals, I signed up, there was nothing to lose. But it turned out there was nothing in this place that convinced me to stay really active in it. There's too much work to do just to get a good amount of credits that would in turn give me only few referrals. If I wanted to stay out of the hard work, their packages are quite costly as well. The referrals I got from my hard-earned credits were not quality referrals even. So I figured what's the point paying for it? I had better experiences getting referrals from paying for cheaper packages from popular PTC and traffic sites.

I do believe it's a good program though. Besides, why would others recommend it? It just didn't work for me.

Not too good

Since I have joined many PTC sites, this sounded like a perfect way to get more referrals fast. This was not the case however.

You need to get credits in order to get some referrals on your sites and earning these credits takes quite some time. After spending a lot of time completing offers to get credits, I was able to get several referrals for myself. They joined my sites and I thought that everything went as planned, but after only a few days I noticed that my new referrals were not clicking any ads on my PTC sites.

Not the referrals that you want

I joined Get Ref some time ago because I thought that I could get some active referrals but I was wrong. I was joining sites and clicking or doing offers to get credits. When I had enough credits I made an offer with my referral link so I could get referrals. There were 2 people who registered and never clicked a single ad. You don't need this kind of referral - they only show in your list but do not make any earnings for you. I just wasted my time with this site because as you know registering and clicking ads in many PTC sites takes much time. Do NOT waste your time too with this site!

Almost not worth it

I have been on this website for awhile and it is hard to get referrals. First of all, you need to use the referrals of other people to get the credits to put up your referral. This may sound easy, but it is not.

I have encountered many times where I do sign up and I do not get credited. With a lot of the referrals you need to do what they ask before getting the credits, and frankly some of the requests are near impossible to do in the allowed time they give you.

There are a lot of users that are taking advantage of newer users and that makes this website not as fun.

If you want referrals fast, there is no point in using this website, unless you prefer to be one of the people who also take advantage of others but getting them to sign up to your referral, but do not credit you, even if you have been active.

The system of this website is easily abused.

Didn't work for me

I found Get Ref to be a big waste of time for the most part. I joined over a year ago hoping that I would be able to get some referrals to my gpt and ptc sites. The first thing I did there was some sign ups as well as ad clicking in order to get enough credits for my first few referrals. At first, I managed to get a total of 4 referrals, but none of them were active. Then later, I saved up enough credits to get another 2 referrals and again, they were inactive on my sites. What I discovered quickly about Get Ref was that it was easy to get referrals, but it was almost impossible to get referrals that were active. The entire concept of the site is a very good one, but it doesn't work most of the time which is kind of sad. You'll get a lot of new referrals at Get Ref, but nothing more than that I'm afraid.

Good for Traffics but Not Good for Referrals

Getref was a most popular site 2 years ago. I got massive traffic and referrals from that site. I got a lot signups for my site but not one of them were active after I approved their credits.

For many sites like getref, you just get useless or crap referrals because they join only for credits or money and never are interested with offer / promotion on your programs.

Great Idea, too bad it doesn't work

I joined get ref about two years ago, promoted it like no other and joined and did all the things you are supposed to do. Finally when I had 60 credits I decided to get a referral. I started low (bad idea) and finally ended up offering all my credits to try and get one referral. After two weeks I finally got a referral to my program only to find out that they never once did a thing. They were required to get 50 credits so that they would get the getref credits. That never happened and I lost all my credits. I wrote to support to see if there was anything that could be done to get my credits back or to get a new referral and never heard from them either. I finally quit the program when I couldn't get any response from either the referral or support.

Refs From Get Ref Aint Active

I signed up on getref 3 months ago. Signed up on a few programs to get me some credits to get refs for neobux. After the allotted time the refs were meant to sign up to get credited they just stopped clicking. By then it was too late to do anything since credits had been taken from my balance. After that episode I never used getref because it was a waste of time.

Good if you get paid to have a downline

My experience with Get Ref has not been so pleasurable. I managed to get a ref to neobux, but none of them clicked anything, so unless you get paid to have a downline, this is not really the site for you. Referrals take a while to earn, but eventually you will get some refs. You can get referrals to getref.com and earn faster. Get Ref has an old script compared to today's sites. Get Ref has been a trusted site for a long time. My point is, unless people get paid to join under you, Get Ref is not such a great site for you. Their site's ads are kind of annoying. But all in all, Get Refs is self explanatory and the title is what it says. Except all they do is sign up at your site.

Get referrals easily

Get ref is an referral exchange site that I joined 6 months ago when I came in influence of paid to click sites. Get ref is one of the top referral exchange sites . The first day I joined get ref I did 2 sign ups and earned 30 credits . These 30 credits helped me to get 6 referrals out of which 2 are still active . The site is good but does not have an attractive layout. The site looks more like a forum rather than a website but one can get lots of referrals there. I recommend this site to those persons who want some active referrals but you will only get them by giving away quality credits as to get something one has to lose something .

Go for gold

With the risk of losing a valuable income of referrals I would recommend everyone to go for a premium membership. In the first month I got over 20 new random referrals for Get Ref. So either the site has a lot of members joining or no premium members, but this is a good credit earner for my programs.

If you want to buy credits there is money to be saved if you have a premium membership. You can suggest sites as a free member and premium and I suggested 1 and now I'm the only one with this program. You need to earn a series credits in joining other peoples programs so that you'll be able to get more profitable deals. So patience is required but I would recommend this to anyone as this works like a charm every time. It's basically simple supply and demand, so if you offer more than others, you'll get more referrals.

Find your way out of the jungle

 
 
 
Kind of a miss

GetRef sounds like a fantastic idea, but in reality, you will soon realize that the majority just want credits to advertise their own programs. Unless you plan to sign up for hundreds of programs, most of which you have no need for, you will find out why most people aren't active. You can buy the credits but if you get non-active referrals, then you've wasted your money. This one is just hit or miss.

This is the best GPT site I have found. You can make at least $2.00 a day with minimal effort.

 
 
 
You Want Referrals?

Now first of all, GetRef has been running for quite a long time. I have recently been on it and though it was great. I mean I worked hard for my RefCredits, and waited for them to be approved and worked some more till I got 50.1 RefCredits. I thought that would be enough to get a couple of referrals for my program (it was freebiejeebies, and as some of you who have experienced with freebiejeebies before, you will know that you need to use your credit card for offers) so I went to the Get Referrals page and put on 8 RefCredits (well actually 16 because the other half gets thrown back into the getref community). So I though that I will try 8 for my first time and see how it goes. So I did that and then began the long wait.

I waited and waited, for about 3-4 weeks until finally someone accepted it, I went on my freebiejeebies account and I was so excited, but when I checked my referrals, all my hope was crushed. I saw that he didn't complete an offer even though in the description I said you have to complete an offer. So I decided to be nice and go on GetRef and contact him/her. Once I did, a reply from them never arrived, I waited a couple of days and still no reply, I waited some more and still no reply. So I had no choice but to decline them.

I was really angry, so I thought, why not try again but with higher RefCredits, so I offered all of my RefCredits (50.1 RefCredits so the person will get 25.05 RefCredits. I though this had to get me a referral, so I waited and waited, and someone accepted, but sadly, the same thing happened as it did before. I tried at least 6 times more, and every time the same thing happens. I just don't know why?

In conclusion, you want referrals, get them somehow but stay away from GetRef, it might take you like 8 months to get 1 referral, you decide, IS IT WORTH IT?

Get rid of Get ref!

If you are looking for a place to get referrals don't use Getref. I have been with them for over 2 years now and every time I get a referral they just sign up and run away with their points.

There is a lot of Chinese people at Getref and they don't understand English very well, they can't read your description and you just spend your points on nothing. So if you don't want to waste your time don't join Getref. The only winner is the site admin.

Stay away.

Okay site, but don't put your expectations too high

The idea of getting referrals to one of your sites for free was a great prospect for anyone. I checked it out and after a few weeks the results started to show up. I mean, they weren't perfect, but getting only a few refs were really worth the time. Even though most don't click as they are only looking for our credits, it's still worth the gamble as some might actually be interested and some really do click. So, there are cons and pros, but if you consider it for free, meaning that you don't pay them, I'd say it is worth a bit of your time. Though there are many other ways to gain referrals, this is probably better than traffic exchanges as some really do sign up for you which I can hardly find anyone else from other traffic sites to join my programs. So I gave it a C as the conversion rate was still a bit too low for my liking.

Hard to use at first

This website is not a very unique system of getting referrals, but delivers results. I have been a member of this site for over a year and it delivered awesome results for me. At first it was hard to figure out how to use it, but after browsing through the FAQ and just simple playing with this site everything makes sense.

I am a gold member on this site and would recommend to upgrade because there a lot of additional benefits that comes with the upgrade. First, and in my opinion, the most important feature is ability to report specific user and ban them from joining your programs. I had one person who signed up for over than 40 credits in one day and as soon as he completed requirements he either canceled accounts or became inactive. You can also report user to a scam list and it would prevent other members from being scammed.

You can also buy credits with the discount vs being a free member.

If you are not ready to become a paid member, just play around with this site and get comfortable. Join couple of programs and then use earned credits to advertise your own programs. Don't give up, it's a great site!

Good for new webs, bad for wellknown ones

I have my experience with this site 2 or 3 years ago, I was looking for referrals for my PTC sites and I thought that this page could help me. Yes, they really give you direct referrals by an easy way, but the problem is that none of this referrals were active (at least in my case). I got 10 referrals in one week but they only worth me 0,5 for the PTC, because once they get their credit they run away.

I think that you can really get active referrals by this way, but not for the main money earning site. So I believe that if you have joined new PTC site (one which have been recently created) and you are looking for referrals, getref is your web.

There are better ways

Get Ref did not impress me at all. The referrals take way too long to gain, and some of mine didn't even become active! There are much better ways to get referrals than buying credits for referrals, or signing up for other websites. I do not recommend Get Ref to anyone because it is a waste of time.

Easy to get referrals

Get Ref is a referral exchange site. I have been using this site for about six months. I have gotten a few referrals by using this site. I really love this site. It is easy for me to find what I am looking for.

To get referrals through Get Ref is easy. You just have credit where the credit will be exchanged for visits to your business website. It is easy enough to earn credit in this site by signing up with other member's programs as a referral. I would recommend this site to anyone who finds it difficult to get referrals. By joining this site you will have many referrals quickly.

It's great

Great site, I'd say the only one that I use and have confidence in (about getting referrals). It's been a wonderful idea by Jay to create this site. I am very thankful to him as well, collected a whole wall of referrals using this site and I am still doing with this method when I am in need of more referrals. Of course I have a lot of inactive ones but that's normal, some people are signing up only to get the credits. I highly recommend it to the ones who are in business requiring referrals.

Not easy to use

If you've ever tried a program where you have to get referrals in order to "win" a prize, then you've probably heard of getref.com. Getref.com is not a very good site in my opinion. Especially if you're wanting to get good quality referrals. I've been a member there over two years and have not gotten one quality referral. Maybe it's just that it's easier for other people, but for me I would get the referral but the people would never complete an offer like promised. Then if I turned them down for not completing the offer my GetRef status would go down.

Overall if you want to get good quality referrals try to stay away from getref.com and try to find some other way to get referrals.

Great for Referrals

I was having the hardest time as a newbie getting referrals, when I first got online. Get Refs has made my life so much easier. Since I began using this site, I have gotten over 50 referrals. I do a couple of offers myself, and the referrals have been pretty active. It took me awhile to get used to the site, but everything has been smooth so far. I don't know if I was lucky or not, but my refs have been clicking away. If your looking to start making some money for little effort, this is a great program. Highly recommended for newbies.

Freebie sites

I use GetRef once in a while to hire people to complete freebie sites for me. Last site I paid for was freebies4me, I paid the referral $18 and I received $40 from the freebies4me. It took the referral 8 days to go green but I waited patiently because I know that they always take long. I got paid within 4 hours after cashing out from the freebie site and I used the money to buy some articles. I have always used Get Ref and I have always been careful and never been scammed, so I very much recommended it to everyone.

Un-reliable sign-ups

Get Ref is not a bad traffic exchange. The thing with me is I signed up as a referral for many programs, and people sometimes signed up for mine. And the ones that signed up under me only clicked a few times then they were gone. Once I figured out how to use the site, which turned out to be very easy, the site kept me busy clicking for the credits. What I did not like about this site is that it forces one to signup for someones program in order to stay there.

Already earned 11 refferals!

I always found it hard to get referrals on a pay to click program. I tried many sites where other people visit your referral link and get credits for doing that, but nobody signs up at these sites. But with getref you are guaranteed to get referrals (I already have 11 referrals because of getref). Of course there are referrals that click all ads for 3 days and you never see them anymore, but with getref I now have 4 great clickers.

So if you are in search of referrals, but find it hard to get any, then I recommend getref to you.

Get ref, get’s referrals

If you are having some trouble with making money from referrals then I highly recommend this place, it is absolutely wonderful. I complete about 1 offer a day and I get about 1 referral a day, I can't ask for more, I give a little and a get a lot. I earn about an extra $100 from my referrals I made through them.

I have recently joined as a gold member and am loving the extra perks for just a few dollars more per month. I also won one of there draws and cashed out with $32 and 42 points to spend on referrals. Great place, very rewarding. However there is one downside to this program, many users will say they completed your task when they have done nothing at all, and you will lose points for declining them, they need to work on fixing that part.

Get tons referral in some minutes

Get Ref is a great site. I have been using them for about seven months. Get ref offers exchange for referral sign up. You will earn credits by signing up other member's business opportunities. From the credits you can buy your own referral for downlines. I can get 100 referrals just in one month.

To get many referrals through get ref is easy, but the problem is almost the referrals are not active. They just sign up to get credit. Overall this is great site. I would recommend this site if you have troubles in getting referrals. The more you sign up member's business the more credit you will earn.

It Helped Me Get Referrals

I signed up for Get Ref when they first started, and I got a lot of people in my down line. I found it easier to recruit referrals this way, because everybody's here for the same reason. I have been successful using the system, and it's so easy to make money. You do have to be patient, but you will get some ref's. I'm signed up to multiple sites, and Get Ref helped me get referrals across my different sites. If you are just getting started in gpt sites, this is a good place to start trying to get referrals.

An overall good site

Overall I have had a pretty good experience with this site. If you are willing to join someone's site and gain your points that way then getting a few referrals is pretty easy, but even doing it by clicking the traffic links it is possible, just takes a very long time. I have spent some time working with this site and have gotten several good referrals from them. About 80% of the referrals I have received from this site have really worked at the opportunities that I offered them, but because of the few that didn't I must caution those who are not willing to put in a little time. Remember this too, if you are just going to join a site to get credits and when you get them just stop working at it, this could happen to you as well. Take the time, some one else is trying to get quality referrals just like you, so if you join a site then be a quality referral.

This doesn’t work

I have not had very much success with this one, I know on IMRC it says that the main reason people are joining are programs are because they want to get credits for there own programs. I didn’t think this would be true for every single referral that I made through them, but it is. I stated in my campaign that I wanted people to join through me then do an offer, they did exactly that but after that I didn’t see any progress with those referrals. So therefore I don’t think the little amount I made from them was the amount that I payed for them. They also should had other offers then free, but all in all I would say pass on this one.

Get ref rocks

I love this place, I mean I was struggling so much to find referrals and I would see all these people stating they have over 100 referrals for each program and I always wondered how. Well now I know how, with get ref. This place is awesome, I did a few offers, earned some points and started a campaign. I was amazed to see I had 3 referrals the next day. I started adding money to my account just so I could get more referrals even faster. This place works and if you don’t mind spending a little bit of money you can make a lot back with referrals from here.

Have to Be Patient

I have used GetRef to buy referrals for my Forcebuck sites many times in the past. I pay the referral $10 and I get $20 from Forcebuck so that is an 100% profit. Sometimes the referrals on GetRef take a very long time to complete a site which is very aggravating, last time I paid a referral they took two weeks. Some referrals have tried to Scam me on GetRef but I have not fell for it yet. I have learned to be patient while waiting for a referral to complete the site even though it can be very stressful.

I was able to get some referrals

I discovered Get ref absolutely accidentally about a month ago and the name made me think that I will be able to find some good referrals. First of all the site design definitely wasn't the best and it was not really professionally looking. My opinion is that it could've been better but still isn't that bad. The credits are quite hard to earn and it takes a lot of time to make enough. The process is really slow and thus it isn't worth it much. Thanks to Get ref I was actually been able to get some referrals which is quite nice. So in short if you are in search of referrals and want them fast, then the program won't be useful to you but if you have enough time on your hands then you might benefit. Since I was able to get some referrals I would recommend the program but you will need patience.

Good Profit Maker

Whenever I’m in need of some fast money, I resort to Get Ref. The concept is that you pay a ref, the ref does offers off a freebie site, and then the freebie site pays you. I have been using Get Ref for over 2 months now, and I’ve had over 100 refs, which have made me over 500$ worth of profit. Be wary though, there are scammers on Get Ref, and they will not pay you for the money your ref made. Other than that, I love this site, and have made over 500$ in 1 month, and that number increases exponentially as I invest more money into Get Ref. I have made hundreds, and continuing to make hundreds, and I promise that you will too.

A PTC site that can potentially make you $2500 a month from 2 minutes worth of clicking! Click here and please use me as your referrer!

 
 
 
Get ref, not so great

I joined this site to make some money with the referral program here at IMRC. However the going rate for a referral to IMRC was 5 credits, now that’s a lot compared to other offers but I decided to pay 5.5 credits for every referral. I received a referral within the first 24 hours but when I checked my profile here at IMRC, I soon realized this was not true. I then went to decline his offer and they stated I would be penalized for declining, since when should I get penalized for not getting what I payed for. I don’t like how I can get scammed by users like that, so I joined as a gold member to ensure that didn’t happen again. I think that is how they get you, I have had no problems since then and have made some referrals through them.

Very fast cash

Whenever I am short on cash or need to purchase a new tool of any kind I go to Get Ref and make some fast cash. It always takes about a week to received the cash because I have to pay the referral, wait for them to complete the freebie site and than wait to be paid by the freebie site. Nonetheless it is faster than waiting a month to get paid by a CPA company. Last site I had completed on Get Ref was Freebies4Me and I paid $15 for my referral. I needed the quick cash for an article submitter which I bought after being paid by the freebie site. There are some scammers on Get Ref though because I know a few people who paid for referrals and the referrals never completed the freebie sites. So if you can spot scammers and wait a week to be paid then Get Ref is definitely for you.
