The Refer-A-Friend program is our way of thanking the person who referred you to Ting and adding some icing on the cake for you.
When your friend or family member was telling you about Ting, chances are they gave you a referral link and you're probably wondering what to do with it.
What is a referral link?
A referral link is a special link that, when used, automatically applies a discount to the purchase of your new device or a credit to your account once you use the link to create the new account. It also applies a credit to the account of the person who referred you to Ting.
How do I use a referral link?
When you're ready to get started, rather than coming directly to ting.com, use your referral link instead. This will bring you to the site, automatically apply your credit and you'll see a banner at the top of the page confirming that.
How does the referral link work?
When you use the link, the system automatically applies a discount of $25 to the purchase of your new device or $25 in credit to your new account if you purchase a used/refurbished device or bring your own and activate. Your friend will get their credit when you activate that device.
What if I change my mind about signing up right now?
No problem! Just come back later, but use your referral link to come back to the site when you're ready.
Can I use a referral link for my second device?
No. Referral credits only apply to the first device on your account and only apply to new accounts.
I just signed up and forgot to use my friend's referral link. What do I do?
We can help you out with that. Just get in touch with us once you have activated a device. Please make sure you have your friend's referral link or the email address they use with Ting handy so we can apply the credits for you.
My friend told me about Ting, but didn't give me a referral link.
Your friend can find their link in the Referrals section of their account online. Have them go ahead and e-mail it to you.
