Yeah, the new system will be somewhat confusing at first, but I think it will provide a lot of versatility for those of us who refer others to DreamHost.
Well, you can offer a combination of cash discount and feature bonuses, but each feature bonus that you offer with a particular promo-code will reduce the overall maximum cash discount that you can offer with that promo-code.
For example; If you offer a 20% bandwidth bonus, since each 10% reduces your rewards payment by $9, this will reduce the maximum discount you can offer with that promo-code by $18, from $97 to $79.
Another example; You could create a promo-code that offers 50% bonus disk space (cost: 5x9=$45) and 50% bonus bandwidth (cost: 5x9=$45), this would reduce the maximum cash discount that you could offer to $7.
Of-course, you can also provide extra 'free lifetime domain' registrations and 'lifetime unique IPs', but these also reduce the maximum cash discount that can be offered by that particular promo-code.
