I got an email yesterday that the program is changing to start paying your referral credits sooner:
"When your friend completes the referral, the credits will start appearing on your next bill." (It use to take a month or three before you started to see the credits.)
BUT they'll claw those credits back if the referred person leaves before 90 days:
"To be eligible for the referral credit, both of you must have active service with Koodo when the credits are applied. The person being referred must keep their account active for 90 days after activating. If service is terminated within 90 days of activating, the bill credit will be charged back to both their account and the account of the person who referred them."
So the referred account, if it stays for 90 days, should get $20-30 in referral credits during that time. I don't know how much the referrer would get - I think at least $20-30, possibly the full $50?
It sounded like there was some sort of audit process that took a while previously - maybe they've simplified that or automated it more or something?
Another relevant detail I just noticed in the terms:
"Subscribers that are on seasonal hold are not eligible to receive the referral credit. If the line is put on seasonal hold within 90 days of activating, the bill credit will be charged back to both their account and the account of the person who referred them."
So if you go the seasonal hold route, you're right, no point in getting a referral.
