"I've been a U.S. Cellular customer for years -
and I am happy to recommend the service to anybody.
I'm also happy to get paid for doing so."— Mike B, Wisconsin
What happens if a Referee (the person being referred) activates a new account before the Referrer (the person making the referral) has submitted their information (sent a referral)?
Neither the Referrer nor Referee will receive their $50 reward. The Referee must receive their referral before activating a line.
When a Referrer submits referrals, what forms of communication will their friends and family receive?
Referrers can choose from email, Facebook or Twitter. Most choose email.
How do the Referrer and Referee get rewarded for multiple phone lines on one account?
All the Referrer has to do is register for the referral program once with one email. Then they can add other phone lines to their Refer-A-Friend account. All reward activity associated with that set of phone lines will be visible in the Referrer's account. Register at: https://referafriend.uscellular.com/#/home/welcome.
Will the Referee be told who referred them?
Yes. Any referral comes to the Referee with the note "Sent from your friend, [John Doe]."
How does the Referee receive their reward?
The Referee receives their reward in the form of a promo card that may be used at any U.S. Cellular store or on the web at uscellular.com. The card is mailed to the address that the Referee entered when they registered (on the Refer-A-Friend website) for the referral program. The reward is dispatched about 4 weeks after the Referee registers their new line on the Refer-A-Friend website. Remember, any Referee must activate a new line before registering on the Refer-A-Friend website.
How does the Referrer receive their reward?
The Referrer gets their reward in the form of a promo card that may be used at any U.S. Cellular store or on the web at uscellular.com. The card is mailed to the address that the Referrer entered when they registered (on the Refer-A-Friend website) for the program. The reward is dispatched about 4 weeks after the Referee registers on the Refer-A-Friend website. When the Referee registers via a link provided in an email or via social media, the pairing of Referrer and Referee occurs and both parties are issued a reward card.
How do the Referrer and Referee check the status of their rewards?
Both Referrer and Referee should log into their account on the Refer-A-Friend site. It will give a list of all submissions and the status of each reward. "No status" means that the referral is still in-process.
If the Referrer cancels their service before the Referee completes their paring will rewards be paid?
No. Both the Referrer and Referee must be deemed qualifying by being active customers for at least one day after the pairing is made.
