Hi Matt - both you and the person that referred you have earned the $50 credit. You would have received an email to your sympatico address confirming this. The wording may have thrown your friend off - it likely reads that you've eared the $25 credit PLUS a bonus $25 - totaling $50. That said, there will be a gap between this confirmation and when the credit is applied to your account - expect between 4-8 weeks for the credit to be applied.
Hope this helps.
