Get a Free $25 Today (4/15) Only (Promotion Extended)

It looks like the promotion is extended until May 15th.

It's not very often that I can offer you a very easy to way to earn $25 - with little risk and about 5 minutes of time (they claim 2 minutes, but I'm often just a little slow). The other day a friend of mine let me know that a new company is planning to compete with Paypal - Revolution Money Exchange. It seems that users can exchange money with no fees - it reminds me of why I signed up for Paypal many years ago. If you open up an account from this link, they'll start you off with $25. For full disclosure, if you decide to sign up, I'll get $10.

It's a run by a real bank, which is important to me if I'm going to store any significant money there. So if money transactions are free, how do they make money? Here's a list of their fees which are largely avoidable.

I love when I can free cheap dinner for little work. The offer expires at the end of the day, so don't be Lazy with it.

    i did it already, and ended up with $25.25 in free money in my checking account.

  3. keonne says:

    I got my girlfriend to sign up and send me her 25 bucks.

    So now I have 60 bucks…. for free.

    Sweet deal

    Keonne, that’s a fantastic idea… It’s much better than $25 itself.

    Are you sure today is the last day? My email says May 15th.

    I’m a little worried after looking at their privacy policy:

    INFORMATION WE COLLECT
    We collect information about you from the following sources:

    * Information we receive from you, including information on applications or other forms, such as your name, address, social security number, assets and income;
    * Information about your transactions with us, our affiliates, or others, such as your account balance, transaction and payment history, parties to transactions, and credit card usage; and
    * Information we receive from a consumer reporting agency, such as your creditworthiness and credit history.

    INFORMATION WE DISCLOSE
    We may disclose all of the information that we collect, as described above. You may opt out of the disclosure of such information, other than as permitted by law.

    —end quote—
    So they may give anything you tell them (including SSN) to anyone they want and you can’t opt out of this unless you snail mail your request to them. No exceptions that I can see.

    I think I’ll hold off. $25 is nice, but this isn’t really a loophole as much as a nice tunnel. Anyone with any incite on the real legality here or what they legally can & can’t do with the info since they’re a bank?

    Isn’t that pretty standard for a bank? I’m looking at Bank of America’s and I think it’s roughly the same.

  8. Matt says:

    BoA does have the same general verbiage. I guess Wesabi’s draconian security spoiled me a bit. My bank doesn’t mention SSNs in their policy, but there is a phrase that they could wiggle into (though I think you could lawyer them back out)

    I’ve got the $25 sitting waiting to be received, I just am going to give them a little while before tossing my info into their hat.

  9. Tom says:

    Lazy – it’s a great promotion. My readers have received $750 so far and I’ve received $300.

    Matt – I was also concerned about giving out my social security number. I looked into it and wrote about it here.

    It looks like it’s USA only. :( Oh well.
