As per the MSE Forum rules, please don’t share referral codes and links.

We're interested to know:

📣 How much money have you made through referrals over the years? 📣


Have you referred a friend to your bank, cab app, gym, or any other service, and reaped the rewards? Roughly how much do you reckon you've made overall?

    My dad used my referral code to sign up to a new fibre broadband provider and we got £100 in Amazon vouchers each which was a pretty good result for both of us.

    I used to use a photo-printing company called Lalalab who had a very generous referral scheme at the time, with no cap. I pushed my referral code on everyone and at one point ended up with something like £200 in free credit.

    2. Financial instruments (banks/ credit cards)
    3. Small businesses via word of mouth

    I did quite well when the referrals board was on MSE. I had free shares which I sold for about £20 each. I had £50 in Amazon vouchers for referring others to Western Union. Others I can't remember now.

    Outside MSE I had £50 last year foor a referral to Octopus energy - we both got a £50 credit. £20 credit this week for referring a friend to Chase bank - this was the day after I signed up to Chase and received £20 for joining them.

    Probably about £1000 in the past year mostly from apps and other referral offers for Amazon Vouchers along with cash, shame MSE closed the referrals sub forum to be honest. There's some good offers out there.
