Facebook Partners With Visa Business Network To Give Away $100 Ad Coupons

Social Networking website Facebook is teaming up with Visa Business Network and is giving away $100 advertising coupons to businesses that have or plan to advertise on Facebook.

Interested parties can get hold of the voucher by adding the "Visa Business Network" application (opens in new tab), essentially a social networking application for small business owners, to their Facebook page.

You will have to create a Visa Business Network profile to claim the credit and we've encountered a few technical issues in the process. The problem is a technical error that Facebook is currently troubleshooting. However, Facebook promptly dispatched the coupon code to the user's email inbox (not your Facebook inbox).

The Facebook advert credit will last for 90 days and advertisers will be charged for advertising that exceeds the promotional credit. Furthermore, users will need to suspend their ads if they do not wish to receive additional charges beyond the free credit amount.

The usual terms and conditions apply; the promotional coupon code and advertising credits are non-transferable and may not be sold or bartered. The offer may be revoked at any time for any reason by Facebook and is limited to ne promotional coupon code per individual.

Finally, note that you will need to have a credit card readily available as well.
