If you can’t beat them, give them money.
Today Google announced a referral program for Google Wallet to help kick start adoption of the service. Current users that send cash via Google Wallet to friends that don’t yet have a balance will be rewarded with $5.
You can send as little as a penny to enable the referral bonus and you can get up to 20 referrals for a grand total of $100.
Unfortunately, there are rules. Both parties have to be in the US and it’ll need to be your friend’s first time having a Google Wallet balance. The promotion will end on 11/30/2014 or when Google hits 20,000 referrals.
So you might want to hurry.
