Subscription Reward Options

Get your customers to refer your business by incentivizing them with the right reward.

  • Typical Subscription Reward

    Offer rewards to advocates based on their friend signing up, converting into a full customer, and/or completing a purchase.

  • Pay For What You Keep Reward

    The friend clicks through and orders their subscription box. Once they receive the box, they select an item(s) and return the rest.

  • Mobile Application Install Reward

    Drive more application installs and subscriptions by only offering rewards when both actions occur.

  • Free Trial Reward

    Provide incentives to advocates who refer new customers who join and become a subscriber.

Reward advocates with a one-time $10 offer if their friend subscribes to a $100 monthly plan. Once their friend has been a subscriber for one month, the advocate receives their reward.

The advocate receives a “give $15, get $15” offer to introduce a friend to their fashion subscription box. The friend clicks through and orders their subscription box. Once they receive the box, they select an item(s) and return the rest. Then, reward the advocate for a successful referral.

The advocate recommends a fitness app to their friend for 1-month free. The friend installs and signs into the app and gets $30 off their first month. Then the advocate gets their reward.

A food subscription box offered their customers a get $25 account credit and give a free trial. The customer refers a friend and the friend signs-up for the trial. After the trial, the friend decides to subscribe. Next, the subscription business adds a $25 credit to their customer’s account.
