Google Hands Out $5 To Those Who Invite New Users To Try Out Google Wallet

November 18, 2014 - Written By Justin Diaz

It’s not very often that people want to give you free money, let alone Google, the search giant who’s mobile operating system we love so much. Before today, Google would periodically hand you free money in the form of Play Store balance amounts for the Google Play Rewards surveys that you took. Not all surveys gave rewards of course, but the majority of them did and if you rarely spent the cash then you could have it easily rack up. Now, Google is trying to hand us all more free money, this time by way of Google Wallet.

You may be asking yourself, how can I get my hands on some of this money? We have that answer for you, and it’s simple. So simple that you can repeat the process over and over in a fairly quick amount of time. All you have to do is invite a friend or family member to Google Wallet who has never had a Google Wallet account set up before, and send them any denomination you wish, even a few cents. Once they receive it, you and the recipient will bot get $5 from Google into your Wallet account. It reportedly arrives within 3 business days, so it isn’t immediate, but who care, it’s free. Now let me jump back to the part on repeating the process. This is something that you might want to try as Google isn’t limiting you to a one time deal with this promotion to bring Wallet to a wider audience and spread the word.

They’re letting you invite up to 20 people, each of which you’ll get $5 from if they set up a Wallet account and accept the cash you send them. That’s a possible total of $100, just for inviting and convincing other’s to try out Google’s mobile payment system. Not bad eh? There is one caveat it seems though. Past the limit on inviting up to 20 people. there is apparently only 20,000 referrals that can be accepted to receive the free $5. Which means it’s possible that Google could end this promotion very soon. The scheduled date is set to end on November 30th, but if the amount of referrals reaches 20 before that date then Google will stop things early. So, what are you waiting for? Get to it and get some free Wallet funds.
