Open request a deal forum to allow for referral requests
A new customer that wants to take advantage of these has trouble with getting someone to refer him or her much of the time.
Please allow new customers to request a referral in a dedicated thread in the request a deal forum (Zoomer, amex, Fido etc). People giving out referrals would message them only, no posting. Deal threads can point to the other forum for people who need the deal, and leave the discussion in hot deals
