    As a Valued BMI Customer" you are important to BMI. We owe our success to you, and we would like to share that success with you. We have many free offerings for you at BMI Rewards These include useful and money saving items like adware/spyware protection, a Pop Up Ad Blocker, free personal firewall, and much more.

    One of our most popular "rewards" is our BMI Bucks Referral Program. Each time your refer a friend or family member, and they tell us that you referred them, you earn a $5.00 credit.

    All they need to do when they sign up is mention your name and your BMI email address (if they know it), and we credit your personal BMI account $5.00. If they don't know your email address, not to worry, we can find your account by your name!

    There is no limit on the amount of money you can accumulate in your account by referring new customers to us. As your referrals grow, your money continues to be kept as a credit in your personal BMI account. You can use this money to pay towards your monthly service. If your account reaches a credit of $50.00 dollars or greater, you can cash in your chips and request a check from us for the credited amount.

    The next time you refer someone to us because you love the great service you receive from BMI, and you want your friend or family member to have the same great service, be sure to tell them to mention your name and your email address. Then we will reward your account with the $5.00 credit. It is just "that simple". We have learned in the past 10+ years of business that YOU, are by far, the greatest source of advertising we could ever invest in!
    Thank you!
