    It’s April Fool’s Day and NameDrive launch the ND Spring Bonus - an offer which makes us look the fools.

    We’re giving new sign-ups a bonus of $100 for parking with NameDrive!

    Of course, we already have thousands of existing customers and we don’t want them to miss out, so we're offering them a bonus too. We’re paying our loyal customers up to $100 extra for each of the next three months’ parking! That’s a potential $300 windfall for parking your domains with NameDrive in the spring.

    In addition, we’re also offering a mere 3% commission for using our professional brokerage service, BrokerSelect and we are guaranteeing a Park&Sell purchase for a minimum of 18 months’ revenue!

    You can find all details for this foolish offer and sign up for an account if you don’t have one already on the NameDrive homepage.

    We look forward to being your parking company of choice this spring!

    And, no, this is not an April Fool. The sign-up period for the offer runs the length of April, a full 30 days!

    Guys pls read the small print on this - there is an old saying "the only free cheese in this world is on mouse traps"

    see here

    Taken from source.

    Existing Customers
    To qualify for the ND SpringBonus:
    - Increase your monthly earnings for the next three months by a minimum of $50 compared to March 07 and we'll match any increase up to $100 for each month.

    Ummmmm

    EDIT : So unless you up your reve by 50$ per month, you might as well forget about it!

    It wouldn't make sense for ND to give every customer a $100 bonus, so there was bound to be some restriction.
    Raising an additional $50 per month is hardly asking the impossible, and the reward is probably a better deal than any other parking service is offering.

    Even without the bonus I reckon ND provides a good revenue and service.

    Wow.

    I'm amazed that on the forums where they are normally frostier, we get support for this and on the UK one you guys feel like we're ripping you off!

    As Keys says, we have 12,000 customers, to give them all even a ten dollar bonus would cost us 120K, to give you all $300 would cost us 5 million dollars.

    I can't really say that it's small print if it's under the 'How it works' section. It is simply this - we know that many people park at different parking providers or use other ways to monetise traffic and we'd like you to park with us so you can enjoy all the fruits of the ND basket. By bringing more to our system, we're happy to pay you a bonus on top. I don't see any small print in that, it is simply an encouragement to use us. There are conditions, as with any offer and we make them very clear on the page.

    At ND we are constantly trying to make life more enjoyable and financially rewarding by using us whereas the other companies plod along doing the same thing day after day. We don't ever try and confuse people or lead them assunder, we only try to do innovative, fun, rewarding schemes. I appreciate that not everyone can take advantage of the offer, but I hope that many of you will.

    Have a good evening.

    Thanks for the promotion, unlike some miserable sods on here I do appreciate it!

    I just switched some of my names across from Sedo - with more to follow. I hadn't realised you had added so many features since I last looked at my Namedrive account.

    Best wishes

    Stephen.
