I’ve just had a friend successfully sign up using a golden ticket I sent her over a month ago. She spent on her card this morning - I got a notification she’d joined… she text me to say thank you for the referral and the free £5.
Where was my £5?
I contacted help to be told the referral scheme has been changed and the referER no longer gets £5, only the referEE.
Big shout out to Jack who helped me, and was very kind and credited me with £5 as my invite was sent before the changes had been made. He explained that the decision has been made to change this as people were abusing the system.
Does anyone know how and when this was announced? I hadn’t heard anything - which is worrying as more people are likely to get this nasty surprise.
Also, is anyone able to shed any light on how this system was being abused? Would be interesting to know.
It’s a massive shame as it’s a huge incentive to people to get their friends to sign up.
