It’s a truth universally acknowledged that when you get a great deal on a product or service, you just have to tell a friend about it. It’s always great being able to share a good review or experience and it’s even better when you get rewarded for it. With that in mind, we’ve pulled together 10 of the best refer-a-friend offers out there at the moment.

If one of the below is a service you already use, recommend a friend but be sure to tell them about the offer so that you can be rewarded for it. If you are looking to sign up for one of those we’ve picked, then find out if anyone you know already uses them – you might both get a bonus out of something you were planning on signing up for.

1. Quidco

Cashback site Quidco allows you to earn money on your purchases by getting a percentage cashback whenever you spend, providing you use Quidco’s affiliated links. Their refer-a-friend offer gives you a unique referral link to share with your mates.

When one of them signs up using the link and earns £5 cashback, you get an additional £25 paid into your Quidco account – bargain.

2. BT Broadband

BT, as an organisation needs little introduction – they’ve been around forever and are a trusted brand. Millions of us use their broadband service already and they have a very generous refer-a-friend offer. As an existing customer, you sign up to receive a unique referral link to share.

When your friend signs up using that link (and once their broadband is installed and the first bill paid) you each get a £50 Amazon voucher.

3. Sky

Another trusted brand, Sky has a great refer-a-friend offer on Sky TV. Existing customers can send a unique code to a friend and if their friend then uses that code to sign up, you’ll get a prepaid MasterCard loaded with £75, 15 days after their services are installed.

Once your friend’s account has been active for 30 days, they’ll get an email allowing them to claim one for themselves. It’s a win-win.

4. Hive

Hive creates smart devices that allow you to control everything in your home – from your thermostat to your lighting – with one app. Their refer-a-friend scheme means that when you recommend Hive to your friends and family, for each one that buys Hive Active Heating with Hub, Hive View Outdoor and Hive View Indoor as a new customer, you’ll get a free Hive Active Light. Oh, and they will get £30 off too.

5. Scottish Power

With energy prices rising and the UK heading into winter, this is a particularly timely offer from Scottish Power. Simply invite your friends to join Scottish Power using your unique referral link and make sure your friends use it to sign up.

Once their switch to Scottish Power is complete (it usually takes around 21 days) and they remain a customer for at least 28 days, the two of you will share an energy credit on your bill of up to £120. That’s up to £60 off your bill.

6. Simply Cook

Simply Cook is a recipe box service that sends you hand-picked and blended flavours along with recipe cards so that you can cook restaurant-quality meals at home. Their referral programme allows you to invite friends to sign up using your unique link.

When they do, they’ll be offered their first box for just £1 and you get a free box as a thank you.

7. Bloom & Wild

Online florists Bloom & Wild have some of the most beautiful blooms around, and their referral offer allows you (and a friend) to get your hands on some for free. For each referred friend who makes a first-time purchase, you get a £10 credit to spend on flowers and/or gifts. Your friend meanwhile is offered £10 towards that first order. Blooming marvellous.

8. Virgin Media

If you are a Virgin Media customer and refer a friend to Virgin Media, Virgin Mobile or Virgin Media and O2 Volt packages using your unique link,  you’ll pocket up to £50 cash 60 days after their service is installed or their phone is delivered.

9. HelloFresh

HelloFresh is a subscription service that sends out weekly recipe boxes with everything you need to make an amazing meal. Existing customers have an unlimited HelloShare code to send to friends. This gives your friend a £20 discount on their first HelloFresh box, while you get a £20 credit to your account as a thank you.

Occasionally they also reward customers Freebie codes, which allow your friends to get their first box completely free.

10. Kingsbridge

We admit to being a bit biased, but our own refer-a-friend programme is pretty generous in itself. When you recommend a friend to us and they go on to purchase, you get up to £40 in Amazon vouchers (value depends on the total net basket premium) while your friend gets 10% off. And on top of this, this month only you and the friend you refer will be entered into a winter prize draw!

You could win your choice of prizes, including a Fitbit or £150 in vouchers. Offer runs until the 5th December 2021. Find out more on our refer a friend page.

All you need to do is complete the form with your details and the details of one or more friends (please make sure you have their permission to do this) and we’ll do the rest.
