How to get a Gladius and a Dragonfly for only $25

Hi Everyone!

I figured out a way to get both a Gladius (w 6 MI) and a Dragonfly with only a small investment of $25.  You also get a few other cool rewards along the way.  I tested it out myself and it worked like a charm.  

 

So how?

By using the Referral program AND the 2017 Referral Contest concurrently- between now and Aug 8th it is possible to reap the rewards of both.  After this contest is up then it is still worth it just for the Gladius imo, since it is a $125 ship atm.

 

Exactly how?

That is up to you.  The goal is to earn 10 Referral Points (RP) linked to your account. I used Bing Ads, set up an account with the online chat.  Refused to put any money on it until AFTER I got the $100 coupon for new accounts (had to wait like 2 days for that), then I prepaid $25.  My ad on Bing has run 17 days now, and I have 58 prospects and 14 recruits.  I have spent $90 of my total $125 ad money so I am hopeful that I will get to Lt in the referral program (25 RP) before that amount dwindles to zero and I let it go idle.

If someone is interested in doing the same I think it is a good bet and I would not mind helping you out in setting up the account and the ad.  From experience I think using Google ads is not worth it (they charge too much per click and per impression while Bing only charges per click), however Google and Bing are running similar ad coupons for new accounts.  

 

What exactly can you get doing this now?

You can check the status of the referral program and your referral code by going to YOUR RSI ACCOUNT and clicking REFERRAL PROGRAM (the Referral Contest link is embedded on the REFERRAL PROGRAM page)

Below is the list from the RSI Referral Program webpage and below that is the list of rewards from the 2017 Referral Contest.

So if you like hangar flair and a Gladius short range patrol fighter/Dragonfly ship set then I think this is about the best deal out there right now- plus you promote Star Citizen which shouldn't hurt either :-)
 
You can check the status of the referral program and find your referral code by going to your MY RSI > MY ACCOUNT > REFERRAL PROGRAM (the Referral Contest link is embedded in the RANKING LADDER page)
 
Wish all you fellow Imperials (Imperiumals? haha) [orgmates in Imperium!] the best!

VERY IMPORTANT EDIT as of 2017-07-06
I just discovered that one must ACTIVELY ENROLL in the 2017 Referral Contest.  From your My RSI > My Account > Referral Program > Ranking Ladder > 2017 Referral Contest page you must then select "Enter Contest" and agree to the terms!  This was poorly thought out by RSI to say the least, as most people I know also failed to find this and, like myself, assumed that the Referral Program is automatic, so the Referral contest would also be automatic.  I have submitted a customer service request on this issue and am hoping CIG will have the decency to automate enrollment.  Until then it would be wise to go to the page and Enter the Contest ASAP.

That's the thing with ad farming. It even depends on luck as well.

Someone search SC up on google -> Clicks Your Ad -> Sign up for account -> Purchase $40 worth of products(And it have to be actual cash flowing into the game and not gifted by others) -> You get points.

On one hand, you help SC pay for adverts. On the other hand, too many people do this and it might be worth it to find another way to promote SC :P

      Hey guys I was wondering if anyone had an opinion on the odyssey.  It looks like it has everything the Carrack has except with mining and refining... possibly better medical facilities also.  It doesn't have as much for cargo capacity but might have a larger hanger.  It looks like it could be really good.

      Hi everyone /
      I have images/gifs of ships/vehicles that are either flyable or in concept, development, re-worked or from Star Citizen lore.
      There are also many other categories, including anything from Star Systems to Characters to Ship/FPS Equipment. I constantly add more to the albums so don't be afraid to come back here anytime for the latest images.
      Please Note: Because of certain, rather disappointing circumstances that are beyond my control, this page will no longer be updated.
      As I have a desire to preserve this archive and continue adding the latest images, a new website has been set up. Please click here and remember to bookmark the new site.

      Good day everyone! I've been going through the old Freelancer game recently and realized that one of my major loves in that game was having to work toward getting a new ship and tricking it out. While I love giving CIG IRL money toward the development of the game, I don't actually want to have every ship in the game before the game comes out. So I'll be listing MOST of my ships at RSI Cost + ~5% to cover the international paypal fees and transfer fees that I have to do. The ones that ARE NOT RSI Cost are generally Original/Veteran versions of the ships or packages that have not been released since the original concepts. If you have questions, please PM. Verified paypal only.
