Here's all that you need to know about the Amazon Refer and Earn Program.
Important: Amazon has discontinued the Amazon Refer and Earn Program in accordance with its terms and conditions. The program was discontinued on June 29th, 2017. As of that date, new referrals will no longer be tracked and bonus accrual payments will be stopped. You will be issued the standard bonus for any successful referrals made prior to June 29th, 2017. All links you have shared will redirect to an Amazon new customer login page. However, referrals will not be tracked or accumulate toward this bonus program.
What is the Amazon.in Refer and Earn Program ?
The Amazon.in Refer and Earn Program lets you invite friends to join Amazon. For every friend you successfully refer to Amazon.in, you will receive a gift card worth Rs. 200, redeemable on the site.
What is the benefit?
If your friends accept the invite, sign up at Amazon.in and complete their first purchase worth Rs. 300 (excluding shipping, handling or gift-wrapping fees) or more, we will send you a Gift Card worth Rs. 200* valid for purchases at Amazon.in.
Additionally, we will also send your friends a Gift Card worth Rs. 100*, once they have completed their first purchase.
How can I refer Amazon.in to my friends?
You can invite your friends to join Amazon.in through either of the following options:
Is there a limit on the number of email invites I can send?
Yes, you can send up to 100 e-mail invites.
Can I invite anyone?
Yes, you can invite any of your friends or acquaintances. However, to ensure that users don't get spammed, please ensure that you only send invites to people you are acquainted with.
How long is the referral link valid for?
Your referral links are valid for a period of 60 days from the time you share them. As long as a non-member joins Amazon.in though your link, and successfully completes their first purchase, you will receive a referral bonus. After the order ships, the Gift Card will take 30 days to appear in your account
How do I get the Gift Card?
You will receive a Gift Card issued via email within 30 days after the date the order has been shipped to a new Amazon.in member that you referred.
Are there any restrictions on using the Gift Card to shop at Amazon.in?
Gift Cards cannot be used to buy other gift cards or to pay shipping, handling, taxes or any other applicable transaction cost. For more information, please read the Amazon.in Gift Card Terms and Conditions.
Do Gift Cards have an expiry date?
Yes. All Gift Cards, including any unused Gift Card balances, expire one year from the date of issuance. You can find the expiry date on the Manage Your Gift Cards page
How do I check my Gift Card balance?
You can view your Gift Card balance and the associated details on the "Manage Your Gift Cards" page.
Why did I not get a Gift Card for an invite that was accepted?
To ensure the account security of our members, we cannot disclose or confirm any account information or order history from another member's account. However, if you aren't notified about your referral bonus within 30 days, it's likely that one or more of the following conditions weren't met:
Do I receive a referral bonus if a user I referred purchases a Kindle eBook?
You will not receive a referral bonus on Kindle eBook purchases.
I wish to create an account on Amazon.in via the referral link my friend has sent me. What do I need to do to accept the invite?
Please check your personal e-mail. The referral invite is sent via an e-mail which includes a link. Clicking on this link will redirect you to the Amazon.in registration page. You will need to complete your registration, create an account and place an order for at least Rs 300 (excluding shipping, handling and gift-wrapping fees) to avail the benefit of the Refer and Earn Program.
