New targeted offer.
How do you get it, email? or does it just pop-up on log-in?

My guess is, if it were possible/convenient for him to have one he would already. Also, referrals are asked to only be given by Dan here.
Memories last forever, make them while you can.

If you guarantee that I will get approved sure!

Anybody else want to ask me for favors. I seem to be in a really giving mood today!
