About Gemini

Gemini is a cryptocurrency exchange and custodian that allows customers to buy, sell, and store digital assets. It’s a New York trust company that’s regulated by the New York State Department of Financial Services (NYDFS) and was founded in 2014 by the Winklevoss twins.

The company launched one of the first 1:1 USD-backed stablecoins called the Gemini Dollar (ticker: GUSD), offers 6.11% APY when you stake Ether via Gemini Staking, and you can up to 10% back in crypto when you use the Gemini Credit Card.

Gemini Promotions

Offer #1: Gemini $15 Sign-Up Bonus

Join Gemini with promo code “lpnvmesn” and receive $15 of Bitcoin or Ethereum after you buy or sell $100 worth of crypto within 30 days of signing up.

How To Get $15 Crypto Bonus:

  1. Open a free Gemini account using this link.
  2. Click on “Get started” to begin the registration process.
  3. Enter promo code lpnvmesn during sign-up where it asks “Have a promo code?”.
  4. Link a deposit method (bank account or debit card).
  5. Buy $100 or more in crypto within 30 days of commencing account sign up.
  6. Receive a $15 crypto bonus deposited into your account within 30 days.

You can buy or sell any crypto – it doesn’t have to be Bitcoin. When I signed up, I bought $100 worth of GUSD (a stablecoin).

Offer #2: Gemini Credit Card

With the Gemini Credit Card, you can earn rewards in Bitcoin, Ethereum, or 60+ other cryptos currently available on Gemini.

The amount of crypto rewards earned depends on the spend category:

  • 10% back on gas at the pump and EV charging (up to $200 in spend per month for a year)
  • 3% back on dining
  • 2% back on groceries
  • 1% back on everything else

It’s the only credit card that deposits your crypto rewards immediately after you swipe – not when you pay your credit card statement a month later.

Offer #3: Gemini Referral Bonus

Refer a friend to Gemini and earn three levels of bonuses with the Gemini Referral Club:

  1. Recruits: Recruits are your referrals that sign up for Gemini using your referral code and trade $100 in their first 30 days. You and your Recruit will both get $15 in the crypto of your choice.
  2. Icons: Icons are your referrals that trade at least $10,000 in their first 30 days. You both get 15% of Icon’s trading fees for an entire year.
  3. Legends: Legends are your referrals that trade at least $100,000 in their first 30 days. You both get 25% of Legend’s trading fees for an entire year.

Referral rewards will be paid out 30 days after a referee signs up to determine which tier you and the referee are eligible for based on their trading history.

There’s a $600 limit for the “Recruits” tier, which means you won’t earn additional crypto bonuses after you’ve successfully referred 40 people. However, there’s no limit to the “Icons” or “Legends”.

Gemini Referral Club is only available in Australia, Belgium, Denmark, Canada, Hong Kong, Italy, New Zealand, Portugal, South Korea, Sweden, Taiwan, United Arab Emirates, and the United States. 

Previous Gemini Promotions

The following are previous Gemini promotions that have since expired and are no longer available. It’s listed here for informational purposes only. If one of these offers become available again, I’ll bump it back up to the current deals section.

Previous Offer #1: Gemini $50 Sign-Up Bonus

The $50 BTC offer expired at the end of 2023 and is no longer available. The best sign-up bonus is now $15 (see Offer #1 above).

Gemini is offering a $50 Bitcoin bonus when you trade $500 within three days of signing up. This is the best deal if you have $500 available. Some may find the $10 bonus more attractive with its lower $100 trade requirement.

How To Get $50 Bitcoin Bonus:

  1. Join Gemini and complete account registration and verification.
  2. Make sure promo500 is entered in the promo code box.
  3. Invest at least $500 in crypto within three days of account sign-up.
  4. Receive a $50 Bitcoin bonus deposited within 24 hours.

Again, you can buy or sell any crypto for this bonus to trigger. Also keep in mind that you need to make a trade within 3 days with this deal compared to the 30-day window you get with the first offer.

Previous Offer #2: Gemini $7 ETH Sign-Up Bonus

The $7 ETH offer expire at the end of 2022 and is no longer available. The best sign-up bonus is now $15 (see Offer #1 above).

Open a Gemini account and get $7 in ETH for free. This is the same simple deal as the $5 BTC offer. Once you successfully register a new account, Gemini will deposit $7 worth of Ethereum into it.

How To Get $7 ETH Bonus:

  1. Sign up for Gemini under this promotion to lock in the $7 ETH bonus offer.
  2. Enter promo code welcome7 in the appropriate text box and complete account registration.
  3. Receive a $7 Ethereum bonus deposited into your Gemini account after you successfully onboard.

Previous Offer #3: Gemini $5 BTC Sign-Up Bonus

New U.S. customers who sign up to Gemini will get $5 in BTC after they onboard. This is the easiest bonus offered with no trading requirement, however, the bonus is only one third of the standard promotion.

How To Get $5 BTC Bonus:

  1. Sign up for Gemini under this promotional landing page to lock in the $5 BTC bonus offer.
  2. Click on “Get started”, complete account registration, and verify your identity.
  3. Enter promo code welcome5btc during sign-up where it asks “Have a promo code?”.
  4. Receive a $5 Bitcoin bonus deposited into your Gemini account after you successfully onboard.

The Bottom Line

If you’re taking advantage of these promo code bonuses and just want to earn the rewards without the price volatility, I would buy stablecoins. Stablecoins are a specific type of cryptocurrency where the value is pegged to an outside asset, like the U.S. dollar.

I mentioned earlier that Gemini Dollar (GUSD) is an example of a stablecoin pegged to the U.S. dollar at a ratio of 1:1. That means one GUSD is worth $1.

Gemini is my preferred crypto exchange and I consider it one of the safer platforms to trade cryptocurrency.

While almost all exchanges have removed free withdrawals during the current “crypto winter”, Gemini withdrawal fees are very reasonable and trading fees are extremely competitive when you use their Gemini ActiveTrader platform.

With that said, there are more inherent risks with crypto compared to putting money in a savings account at a traditional bank. This post shouldn’t be considered advice – please do your own due diligence.

Interested in earning more free crypto? Check out this list of the best crypto bonuses and try the Coinbase Earn program where you can get free crypto just by learning about them. Outside of sign-up bonuses, I also about other ways to get free crypto.

Thanks for explaining the signup bonus so clearly. Would you recommend choosing BTC or ETH for the bonus and go for one of the other crypto choices? My thought is that they’re lower in price so they have better upside when the whole industry moves up?

John: I can see my EARN $$ back in my account. How do I withdraw those funds back to my Ally Bank account? I have GUSD in EARN but cannot find any way to convert to USD and then push my $$ back to my Ally Bank account. Thank you, Donna

Try now. Gemini is now available in many new countries. There also seems to be a new $25 BTC bonus for trading $100+ with promo code promo100btc. No idea on the expiration date.

Hi, I’ve just registered to Gemini today, Feb 28, and used the link of the 50$ bonus when trading 500$ in 3 days after registration. Just to let you all know that it’s working fine. I’m from Brazil.
One last thing: Gemini passport and ID verification process is very fast. Within minutes it was all done.

Also can we use the 100$ & trade, buy/sell, 5 times for the reward?

I contacted support, they said that the referral bonus promotion has been temporarily disabled at the moment.
But when I change the country to USA it’s working, maybe it’s not available for my country (Poland).

Would I still get the promo if I transfer coins from another wallet? Lets say! I transfer $1000 worth of Dogecoin from another platform like Crypto.com.

Do you have to hold it for a certain amount of time? Just wondering if I could convert my $500 back to USD after a month or so. Sorry, I am new to cryptocurrency.

Can you confirm if the $50 bonus requires using a promo code? Can we also transfer $500 of crypto to Gemini or does it have to be a $500 deposit to qualify for the offer?

My $50 BTC from this Gemini referral has already doubled to $100 haha. Love these free BTC posts! Keep them coming TMN! Any Europe-based promos? We want to ride the bitcoin wave with low risks so any other crypto exchanges we should be aware of, I’m all eyes.

Here is a nifty interest rates comparison tool. Almost all of the exchanges listed here will have a signup bonus, each with their own terms and conditions of course.
