Friend referral

Has anyone actually received the commission free bookings you are supposed to get with a friend referral? I was told about this offer by a friend months ago and joined. First I discovered that the "first 5 bookings without commission" are actually limited to only €200, so quite misleading to start with and then, after I have already had several guests, I am still waiting for this to happen. I have sent several emails, tried calling them - impossible to get through - and am now starting to think that all this will never happen. Just curious.
