By helping referral givers and seekers find each other, otherwise worthless referral deals are turned to cash. How it works? Consumers post any type of offer on MutualWin. Other people, looking for a new gym, apartment or cell phone plan, search the available offers by zip code, product category, or even by street. If the searcher finds the offer they’re looking for, they connect with the posting party via e-mail and arrange to split the proceeds. Referral opportunities range from a USD 100 cell phone referral deal, to a USD 300 cruise ship bonus.
