Google Pay was offering $21 for referring a friend and $21 to the new member. However, they’ve just lowered the referral bonus to just $1-$10 for the referrer and $1-$5 for the new member. They did remove the $10 spend requirement under the new referral offer.
Reader Caroline sent this in, and I’m seeing the same. Initially I was still seeing the $21 offer, but after closing out the app and reopening, I see it changed down.
Anyone who signed up before the moment of change (whenever exactly that was) should still get the $21/$21 bonus, even if you meet the requirement later. But if you signed up after the change I’d guess you’ll only get the $1-$10/$1-$5 bonus, even if you generated the link while it said $21. That’s just my guess.
Strangely, I can’t seem to find where they even say what the qualifications are to increase the bonus from $1 to $10 or from $1 to $5. I must be missing it in the terms somewhere.
The referral limit remains at 3, as before. (Initially it had been 10, but was lowered down to 3 where it remains.)
