This $25 referral fee is promotional only and can end at any time. In addition, you can earn $250 from every person you refer (Level 1), and $250 from every person they refer (Level 2), and $250 from every person they refer (Level 3).  You will earn 1.5%, 0.75%, and 0.25% from your Level 1, 2, and 3 referrals, respectively.  Watch this video to get a better understanding.  While this referral program may be discontinued at any time, at this time we anticipate it continuing for a long time.
