Program Structure and Eligibility
To be eligible to make a referral, you must be:
- A legal resident of the United States of America;
- At least 18 years of age,; and
- Not be a subsidiary, affiliate or promotional agency of Credible.
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”.
In order to be a Referrer, you must use the specific referral link provided by Credible through email (“Referral Link”). For each person that you refer who successfully registers and refinances their student loans on the Credible Platform (through to completed funding) using your Referral Link, the first Referrer will be eligible to receive the reward stated in the campaign for the “Referrer” and the individual you are referring will be eligible to receive the rewards stated in the campaign for the “Referee”. Both of these rewards will be sent to the relevant Participant via Giftly.com (“Referral Reward”). If you do not have a referral link, you may contact Credible at email@example.com for a Referral Link. Referee must use the Referral Link from commencement of the Credible refinancing process through to completion in order to be eligible for a Referral Reward. Referee must not have an existing Credible account.
Referral Rewards shall be limited to one per Referee (with the first person referring being the eligible Referrer), up to a total of 25 Referral Rewards per Referrer. A Participant will not receive multiple Referral Rewards for referring the same individual taking out multiple loan products, nor will a Participant be eligible for Referral Rewards for taking out multiple loan products. All Referral Rewards are subject to verification by Credible. Referee must not have refinanced with Credible in the past. Individuals with multiple Credible accounts will be disqualified from participation in Referral Program. Referrer and referee cannot be the same person.
Process for receiving Referral Reward
Payment of any Referral Reward shall occur via a credit to Giftly.com sent to the email address provided by a Participant . All persons seeking to claim a Referral Reward must have an active email account to receive payment. Credible shall make 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 exceed $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 Program, any unredeemed Referral Rewards shall be forfeited.
