Open request a deal forum to allow for referral requests

There are so many deals out there that are maximized by having a referral.

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

Good luck with that. Here only allow people to use RFD related referral so RFD can get paid. Anything else mod and moderator will warn, delete, and/pr ban you.

One example is the ongoing referral bonus that Tangerine is giving to existing and new customer. IMO I don't see anything wrong with it. Both parties benefit from it. Of course RFD gets nothing for it. That is why RFD never in favour for it.

We've actually been discussing this and it looks like it could happen sooner rather than later. Just need to get a few things approved first.

That would be great! I agree no reason to not have this, especially for some larger companies as mentioned in this thread

Thanks, good to hear that it's being considered. While I'm aware that there could be RFD affiliates, there are also many companies with no ties that should be open. Fido, or Koodo, for example.

@TomRFD how much longer?

I've always wondered what the BS is with this? I can see jtcb's point, is it realy the reason? I mean, why else would the forum care? It's such a Dictatorial & unnecessarily (I want to care because I want to) thing.
Here only allow people to use RFD related referral so RFD can get paid.
.

I try to follow the rules, but I see Constantly people benefitting from referrals. For fear of being banned/reprimanded I don't, I'm sure I've already blown quite a few referral opportunities because of this unnecessary rule.

Cheers.
