Jaime-Azure-Swan Ultimately, the invitation link for the bonus does not work (of every 3 or 4 people you invite to bunq , it only makes the bonus process with 1), and the truth is that, when talking to a friend about the subject and then It does not work, it's pretty bad and it goes from continuing to recommend.
When something does not work it, of course, won’t do any good. But as far as I’ve heard almost all cases were cases where the terms of the promo were not followed correctly (not having used the card for instance). People will indeed register, which is cool, but what is the value of that when they leave immediately after obtaining the bonus? I consider that a lack of respect towards the services of bunq, although it’s perfectly legit. It’s just a way to squeeze money out of others in my opinion.
Jaime-Azure-Swan A promo is a promo and if you do it you have to fulfill it. In fact the promotion itself is based on profit, the more people you bring more money you get. I'm wrong?
You’re not wrong that it is a promo, and technically people are playing by the rules, but I think the system is abused by people that want “free” money. Which is not the aim I think, the aim is to get people to try bunq, and to stay. So maybe instead of immediately giving the bonus bunq should give it after three months when you’ve used the card at least
x times? I don’t know.
Phlippst to get people in touch with bunq. Even if someone thinks bunq is a toy he/she may think about that when he/she saw all the features and the rainbow 🌈 😉
Bunq should Test it. A Split-Test will show the real success of „free month“ vs. „Financial benefits“ - how many power users do you win in the end? And how many buzz is generated as a marketing-goal?
I completely agree, the buzz is super useful. Hence I do not think it is a bad promotion per se, I just think it can be abused easily considering the amount of “Why don’t I get my bonus yet” followed by the “How do I close my account”-topics. So I’d like to this changed (or better phrased: improved). 🙂 I want bunq to succeed; if that works by giving money to strangers then sure, but I’ve never heard of a company that succeeded only because they gave away money to their “customers”. 😛
