Get $5 free from PayPal

Back in the day, PayPal used to be a nice little way to earn some quick money for referring friends. Now that they’re an established company, they rarely give money away, which is why it’s surprising to see this offer.

You can get a $5 coupon for free from PayPal just for doing a quick demo on how to pay for things through their service. It takes less than a minute, and you can save $5 off a future purchase from any merchant who accepts coupons through PayPal.

Step 1: Go to https://www.paypal-activate.com/clac/eml-na-dt

Step 2: Pick one of the shopping options

It doesn’t matter which one you select, as you’ll have the $5 as a redemption option no matter what you pick.

Step 3: Click your way through the process

PayPal will do a short demo of how to use them for payments.

Once the demo is done, you’ll have your pick of several offers. The free $5 is at the bottom.

You should receive the $5 free within a week.

Note that the $5 is issued as a coupon and expires September 30, 2014.

The details:

Terms and Conditions
Purchases made on international websites should be paid with the Visa, MasterCard or Amex credit card associated to the user’s PayPal account. Purchases may be subject to taxes and/or fees. It is the user’s responsibility to verify and pay for any additional fees as well as to ensure that the import of the product is allowed to his or her country of residence. The user should also be in agreement with the delivery schedule.

This PayPal coupon is non-transferable and valid for a single purchase from select merchants who accept coupons from PayPal. Coupon expires September 30th, 2014.

PayPal and/or 3rd party merchants reserve the right to cancel offers at any time without notice. 3rd party merchant offers may be subject to additional terms and conditions.

I haven’t received the coupon yet, but I will update this post if there are any further limitations, such as a minimum purchase, or if the list of “select” merchants is restricting. Let me know if it works for you!
