A Referrer may receive up to ten (10) Reward Cards ($500 value) within a calendar year, but only one Referrer may receive a Reward Card for each Referred Person or Business that fulfills the requirements (the first Referrer who enters information for a Referred Person or Business will be the eligible Referrer). The Referred Person or Business may only receive one Reward Card for opening an account and completing the requirements but may also be eligible as a Referrer. Referrals made via social media will be credited to the person (Referrer) who initially posts the link to the social media site, even if the post is shared multiple times by different users.

Each person who registers at ReferLive authorizes future communications including emails regarding the program unless they “opt out” by making an election at ReferLive or within such email. The Referred Person acknowledges that a Reward Card will be issued to the Referrer after all conditions have been met in the time frames provided.
