Sounds like he is just referring you. You get the $100 in bill credits, he sends you $25 via paypal or check, and he gets $100 in bill credits. That would be in line with what he has advertised, and would net him $75 in the end.
I don't think it's just a referral. He claims (and testimonials to "prove") that he is paying people who do this 125
(not 25, read the site carefully) via paypal.
" I found this site through an article I found on the web while looking for some discounts or rebates before purchasing Directv. I am glad I did. I called Stephen and he explained exactly how this works. I purchased my package and I was paid the $125 the very same day into my Paypal account!

I haven't gone through his link, but I thought referrals had to be done with a special phone number and account number. He doesn't give either or instruct anyone to call the referral number. Also note the guy is openly in Canada. And as I pointed out, the math doesn't work if it's just a straight referral. He claims to get $225 via affiliate network for a sign up, I've never heard of this. Anyone ever heard of DirecTV paying any affiliate or something to that extent $225 for getting a customer??
I find this very strange.
