Google has a new Google Wallet referral program in which it will give users $5 when their friends claim money from them.

Google explains how it works in a support document (via TheNextWeb):

You and a friend can each get $5 when you introduce them to Google Wallet. Simply send money (even a penny works) to a friend of yours who doesn't have a Google Wallet Balance yet. When they claim the money and verify their identity, you'll each receive $5 in your Wallet Balance within 3 business days.

When you're sending money to someone, you'll see a confirmation message if your transaction applies for this promotion.

There are some stipulations. Both parties' addresses have to be in the United States. Both have to verify their identities, and you'll need to have a Wallet Balance already. It also has to be your friend's first time creating a Wallet Balance.

Google will give you a$5 credit for up to 20 referrals. The offer will run until Google sees 20,000 referrals or the end of the month, whichever comes first.
