Friend referrals

Not only do you get a Welcome Bonus for joining, but our Refer-A-Friend program pays your friends for telling you about us.

If you were referred by a friend, there are two ways to make sure they get their referral bonus:

  • Use the link that was sent to you by your friend. It’s the easiest way!
  • At the bottom of the sign-up form, select “Did someone refer you?” and enter your friend’s email.
