I recently took advantage of Dish Network's Referral Program and got my neighbor to sign up. According to Dish you will receive a $5 credit on your account for 10 months after 31 days your referral has been hooked up. It's been way over 31 days and I have not seen any credit on my account nor do I see it even activated on my referral page on my online account. I chatted online with two reps in the last few days about this. The first one said it would show up on my account today, which it did not. The other one I chatted with goes as follows: I xxxx out names and numbers to protect myself and my referral. All other words come directly from the chat itself.

Well I guess this says it all! If anyone is filing a class action suit on this company, I'm in.

I saw your post and wanted to let you know about some updated information about this Refer-a-Friend program for anyone else who may stumble across it.  The way neat way it works now is that you can refer up to ten friends or businesses per calendar year, each activated referral is worth a $5 x 10 bill credit (total of $50), credits will now begin posting immediately upon activation of referred account, and with your first referral, you receive five Pay-Per-View coupons!
