Free hat for PayPal Advantage members

No primary category set

If you’re based in the US and are a PayPal Advantage member then you qualify for a free PayPal Advantage hat.

All you need do is to watch a short video reminding you to keep your PayPal account details up to date (your address, bank account information, credit card expiry dates and email address). At the end of the video enter your PayPal registered email address and PayPal will mail you a hat in 4-6 weeks time.

Sadly, if like me, you’re based outside the US or if you’re not a PayPal advantage customer you won’t get a hat, but you can still watch the video.

  1. Jeez Chris, we miss out on a crap hat but we can watch a video about a hat, I just don’t know how to thank you. Words are not enough.

  2. Working on the basis that hats in bulk are probably only a few pence each can I take it that this is a fair valuation of what Paypal vales its Advantage Account Holders. Also considering that you could argue that large numbers of Advantage Account Holders wearing their hats as a mark of “Pride” would be a Publicity Campaign for Paypal can I take it that “Promotions” and “Advertising” are not a part of Paypal’s Motivation.

  3. I tried it but I’m not an Advantage member. This is what it said (caps included):

    THANK YOU! (picture of hat)

    Your PayPal Advantage Hat usually ships within 4-6 weeks.

    ONLY for Advantage Members

    So not only do they give me false hope that I’m actually going to receive a hat but then they berate me for not be in their special invitation only program.

  4. paypal needs to get its customer service act together rather than buggering around with stupid hats!
    we have been ponceing about now for a month uploading documents, papers, driving licence, ID info, utility bills
    inside leg measurement, DNA cup size blood group, etc etc because some guerkin at paypal wants our company number,
    and could not do a search with companies house , or cant seem to see an effin big certificate we uploaded with the chuffin details on,
    with regular email warnings about account suspension do they real think we want their daft hat

  5. cor blimey guess what we just received!

    Your PayPal Account Has Been Returned to Regular Standing

    6 effin weeks of phone calls and uploading
    time and effort that could have been spent making money not buggering around

  6. they are so strict and to the letter yet we know of at least 5 or 6 other traders that have never had this EU money laundering ID request
    if it were of such importance why ? have they been allowed to continue trading with paypal
    an the id we have had trouble with has had a paypal account since 2004 so could have laundered millions by now if it were hookey

  7. 4-6 weeks delivery for a cap?

    PayPal, an eBay company. Or is it vice versa? Can’t remember anymore.

    Don’t do as I do, do as I say… as they say… :-/
