Who Are We?
LocallyReferred was launched in 2012 by two freebie veterans Joe and Dane. It all began in 2004 with this episode on G4TV where they were explaining how to get a free ipod.
We decided to give it a shot. Why not? We had nothing to lose! While our friends were skeptical we were determined to prove them wrong. Lo and behold our first free ipod arrived. Needless to say they quickly became believers and we quickly became addicted to receiving free stuff!
We became active members on some forums around the internet and started receiving free gift after free gift. Playstations, iPods, TV's, Gift Cards and more were starting to fill our dorm rooms. The feeling you get when you receive your first free gift is truly amazing. We couldn't believe these sites were actually working!
After realizing the potential to make money receiving gifts we decided to start our own site LocallyReferred.com. What we wanted was to combine all of our favorite features from our favorite sites into one. At LocallyReferred we wanted to make it easier for you to get the things you want for free. Most sites make you choose an account type when you sign up. Either you complete all of the offers yourself or you can complete one offer only and your referrals must complete the rest.
On LocallyReferred you don't have to make this choice. You can complete as many offers yourself as you would like or you can refer friends to complete offers too. Maybe you are having trouble finding that one last referral to complete an offer but you don't want to wait any longer to get your gift. You can complete another offer yourself to get that one last point.
