Say hello to the brand that's changing the shopping game for the better, especially as pertains to your registry. Wildlink is the first company of its kind to provide monetary rewards to consumers, simply for recommending products. Here's how it works: Once you've downloaded the app, suggest an item to friends or family members via social media, chat, or email, and Wildlink instantly converts your endorsement into an affiliate link. Essentially, if they buy the product, you earn a percentage of the profit. It's truly that simple.
The same holds true for your registry. If you and your S.O. register for items from any of Wildlink's 20,000 participating retailers (including Target, Nordstrom, Pier 1, etc.), you'll actually get a cut of your guests' spending. Plus, if your nearest and dearest also make any additional personal purchases, you reap the financial rewards from this, too (yep, it just got even better). Depending on the cost of your registry items, you and your future spouse can earn hundreds (or even thousands!) of dollars. Honeymoon fund, here you come.
"Couples drive thousands of dollars of purchases to retailers when they register," explains Wildlink CEO Jordan Glazier. "We created Wildlink in part to let these merchants reward couples for choosing them to create their registries, and a couple’s loved ones can now actively participate in this, too. It really adds up. For friends and family, the purchase is the same as it would be otherwise, with the added benefit of helping a couple build their nest egg. This is especially helpful during a wonderful, yet often stressful, time for a new couple. In this great new scenario, everyone wins."
