Credible Referral Program Terms & Conditions
Referral Program Eligibility
For Referees refinancing loan balances under $30,000:
To be eligible to make a referral, you must:
The Referee must start their refinancing or personal loan request through Credible using the same internet browser and device they used to click the referral link. Referral Rewards are limited to one per Referee (meaning one Reward for a student loan refinancing and one Reward for a personal loan). In the event that a borrower clicks multiple referral links, the referral credit will be attributed to the unique referral link that was clicked first. A Referrer may only receive Referral Rewards once per Referee (meaning once for a student loan refinancing and once for a personal loan).
Devices Used and Multiple Referrals
For Referees who take a personal loan
How to Make a Referral
For the purposes of these Referral Terms, the person making a referral shall be the “Referrer” and the person being referred shall be the “Referee”. The Referrer and Referee cannot be the same person.
To make a “Valid Referral”: (i) the Referrer must send the Referral Link that Referrer received from Credible (“Referral Link”) to the Referee; (ii) the Referee must use the Referral Link to register their refinancing request or their personal loan request with Credible; (iii) the Referee must not have completed a request for refinancing or personal loan offers with Credible in the sixty (60) days prior to submitting their refinancing or personal loan request using the Referral Link; (iv) the Referee must not have refinanced a loan or obtained a personal loan through use of Credible previously; and (v) the Referee’s loan must be completed through funding and not later cancelled.
If you do not have a Referral Link, you may contact Credible at firstname.lastname@example.org for a Referral Link.
Referral Reward Payments
For Referees refinancing loan balances of $30,000 and over:
Payment of any Referral Reward will occur either via a credit through Giftly.com sent to the email address provided by Referrer or Referee, as applicable, or by any other means determined by Credible. Credible will use reasonable efforts to make payment of any Referral Reward within thirty (30) days of loan completion notification from a Provider. All federal, state and local taxes and duties are the sole responsibility of Participants. If the cumulative Reward paid to a Participant in a one calendar year exceeds $599 USD, then a form W-9 may be required to be completed prior to funds disbursement. Payments may not be transferred or substituted. Upon cancellation of the Referral Program, any unredeemed Referral Rewards will be forfeited. Failure to redeem the Reward (e.g., through Giftly or by cashing the check) within sixty (60) days of Credible sending the Reward may result in a forfeiture of the Reward, in Credible’s discretion.
Maximum Number of Referral Rewards
The Referrer’s Referral Rewards are limited to the following Rewards cap: (1) up to 5 Valid Referrals who refinance a student loan balance of $30,000 or more; (2) up to 5 Valid Referrals who refinance a student loan balance of less than $30,000; and (3) up to 5 Valid Referrals who take out a personal loan.
