I tried to replicate this issue, but credits showed up right away. I just registered twice - once through the regular link and once through a self-referral - and received credits both times. Can you try to go through the checkout procedure and see if the credit is automatically revealed on the last page?
My original/first account has $15 credit, secondary email has none. BTW, I am using FireFox in a public library's computer. I cannot clear the history and cache due to the block by administrator.
I can't get the credits either. What browser do you use?
I have the same issue, signed up in Chrome using the OP's steps. If I click on the "Give $25, Get $25 - Credits: $0" link it actually shows $25 in credits available on the account. However, it doesn't show up in the header bar nor when I try to check out. Oh well.
Slickdeals only puts stuff on the frontpage that earns them an affiliate commission. If it isn't on the frontpage, it's because slickdeals makes no money from it.
I know that SD makes money off commission, but they do put up deals that does not earn them commission, as well. This is a moot point, however, as SD does get affiliate commission from Vau.lt.
Maybe they don't want to promote the whole "referral by friend" thing. But thanks OP in41
Maybe. My other Vau.lt deal did go to the frontpage though (source). As that may be the case, I have edited the first post of my thread. The following is how it used to look like:
VAULT is selling the Homedics Powerbag 16" 3000mAh Charging Backpack, in red color, for $39 with free shipping. Have someone refer you and easily get $25 off, making the final price $14 shipped. This product qualifies for free returns.
Note: If you'd rather not go through the referral procedure, you can just sign up as a new member and get $15 off instead of $25 off, making the price $24 shipped.
Instructions (this should take approximately 1 to 2 minutes)
1) Go to http://www.vau.lt/ and click on the "BECOME A MEMBER" link on the top right corner to sign up. Ask a friend for permission to create an account on his or her behalf so you can be referred. Note that this account you are creating will NOT be your main account.
2) Click on the "GIVE $25, GET $25" link on the top right corner, and copy the link after "Your personal invite link" text.
3) Open a new browser window or clear your browser cache, then use the link you copied.
4) Sign up to receive the $25 credit.
5) Go to the product at http://www.vau.lt/LiveEvents/Tech, then checkout.
This product retails for $129.99 and is currently being sold at Amazon for $73.95 (source[amazon.com]).
