The $25 sign-up bonus for Revolution Money Exchange will be expiring on Thursday, May 15. If you don't have an account with RME, consider doing so - it only takes 2 minutes of your time. The company is a new competitor to PayPal and is trying to get as many members as possible. There is a reputable institution behind the service -First Bank & Trust, Brookings, SD.
If you don't have an account with Prosper, the leader in Peer-2-Peer lending, consider applying here. To qualify for the $25 account opening bonus, you have to fund your account with at least $50 and bid successfully on a loan. A $25 bonus on $50 invested equals a pretty decent 50% return on investment.
