They sent me an email. Maybe check your spam/junk mail folder?

I'm fairly new to Personal Capital. I signed up about two months ago, so not sure if that made a difference.

I'm not a new member and got the invite on Thursday. 

ETA:  Look in your Notifications at the top right (flag symbol). I found the note among the other notifications from them. You might have to scroll down a bit.

How soon do you get the $20 gift card?  I know one person who signed up with my referral code this morning and I have not received the $20 yet....I happen to know the person who signed up did not receive it yet either.

It usually takes a couple of weeks. You'll get an email with an Amazon gift card code.

No problem, thank you!

There's only a couple days left for this promotion. Looks like it's over at the end of April.

It's been 7 weeks so far and no referral bonus. Oh well!

Did you link a brokerage account to Personal Capital? I believe you won't get the referral bonus if you're just linking a bank account. I got my gift cert within a week or so. Maybe try again with a different email address.

$20 too cheap to give a profit seeking entity access to my financial data and mrket financial products to me.  Thanks for thinking of us though.

I think Personal Capital is a valuable tool to keep track of your spending and investments. I would recommend people sign up even without a $20 incentive.

I use both Personal Capital & Mint as well as a brokerage firm, local bank account, many credit cards and my mortgage company, all of them are profit seeking entities with my financial data. I really haven't seen in increase in anyone trying to sell me anything other than companies trying to convince me to refinance my mortgage.

But I do understand people are privacy sensitive these days so thanks for the input.
