Re: Discover refer a friend cashback

How does this referral thing/link work?  I got someone to apply for Discover about 2 weeks ago but just verbally told them to go for it, I didn't know of any referral bonus or link I could provide for them.

Re: Discover refer a friend cashback

In the Earn section on Discover.com, click Refer a Friend to get your URL.

If a person uses adblock or other software it may interfere with the referral tracking if not disabled. Also, links generated using the old refer a friend system with the dashboard for tracking (over 4 months ago) will not generate referral credit, but will allow the person to apply and be approved.

Earn might be called Rewards or something similar. Might be confused between card sites.

Darn.  Live and learn for next time.  I got my father to get a Discover card a few weeks ago.  Would have been nice to get that $50, although it seems a handful in is thread unfortunately never received it.

I fought for it and got it.. but you have to be persistent. I basically told them I literally watched them do it, and they were approved. That I could give them their name, if necessary.

thats what im going to do in 5 weeks if they dont issue me the cash back.  Ill tell them everything about the person that used my link, that I WATCHED them do it, and that i saw the application approved.  

 

I did see in the fine print for the refer a friend bonus though that they give no notice to you when its approved, it will just simply show up in your cash back.  so hopefully on my next statement on 1/27 i will have it.

You had them use the "link" though when applying, right?  I didn't do this, so I'm not sure if I have any recourse after the fact.  My father does have the same name as me though, so perhaps that could help my case if both I and he were to contact CS and say that I referred him.
