To celebrate the launch of our new podcast, this April, BigBlueBall is giving you a chance to WIN a brand-new blue iPod Mini!
For every friend you refer to BigBlueBall between April 1 and April 30, 2006 you'll get a chance to win! We want you encourage you to share BigBlueBall with your friends, co-workers and family, and help us reach the 50,000 member mark.
How do you get referral credit?
First, you must be a BigBlueBall member. Next, tell your friends about BigBlueBall. Be sure they enter your BigBlueBall username in the “Referrer” field during sign-up, and you'll get one referral credit. Each credit received during the contest is good for once chance to win, so the more referrals you get, the better your chances of winning.
In the first week of May we will draw a name at random from all valid referrals, and that lucky member will be the proud owner of a brand-new blue iPod Mini — the perfect portable media player. Use it to listen to your favorite music and podcasts wherever you are.
How can you refer people?
Be creative! Tell your friends. Use the topic tools menu to email a topic to a friend (yes, that includes your referral code). And check back each week as we share more tips on how to share BigBlueBall with your friends.
The Fine Print
This contest is open to pretty much all members at BigBlueBall, excluding of course myself and my family. Referrals are not considered complete until the referred person actually signs up and validates their membership. Referrals must be real people — so don't start making up new identities. If we catch you cheating, you are automatically disqualified — no crying allowed. Also, no spamming. I hate spam, you hate spam, we all hate spam. So no spamming, or that'll disqualify you as well.
Good luck!April 1, 2006 at 4:01 pm #141105KudoMember

Now when you sign-in to My BigBlueBall, you'll see your referral link. You can use this link in your email signature, on your blog, in your forum signature (on other forums), on your MySpace account… wherever your friends will see it.
As a reminder, we're tallying all referrals you accumulate during the month of April and for each one, you'll get an entry in our drawing for an iPod!
Good luck!April 30, 2006 at 6:14 pm #141098

Oh dear, Jeff…. what with iPods, GMails, podcasts…. you really need to back off on the “promises” a bit (OR get a few extra hands !?) 😉 🙁May 6, 2006 at 6:56 am #141100
Well it's 11:45 PM PDT Friday here in California, and I'd like to congratulate MrEggSalad for winning our iPod Mini!
We had 101 referrals from 59 members during the month of April. The top referrers, each with three or more referrals were:
- Tigerblade – 13
- Yahoo – 9
- MrEggSalad – 7
- MrOats – 4
- hatedjealousy – 4
- Eagle_Kiwi – 3
Everyone got one entry for each referral earned (101 entries) with the lucky winner drawn by Random.org.
Congratulations, Ryan (MrEggSalad)!
And thanks to everyone who shared BigBlueBall with their friends.May 7, 2006 at 2:49 am #141104Dr KimbleParticipant
WHOO! Yay for Eggy! *claps*February 1, 2007 at 3:15 pm #141107girtslMember
Khe, khe you are realy weard you spend so many time looking for referral, but there are some realy good programs that offers to get ipod without loking for referrals just a few dollars join the waiters line and after four to five weeks get jour ipod. and they give 100% guarantee.
.. I think you are … … OK the referral programs works, but it takes so much time that I don`t think it is worth that. Thous big corporations are just F***** you hard. Thats what I think.
the alternative smal private programs are much Better.. I think.
I get my ipod by spending onley few ours on my computer. About 2 h tooked me to make an payment an a few minets to send e-mail with my address.
Check out these alternative programs.
