How to Refer New Customers
- Referred Customers
You may refer eligible individuals to become new customers on the Gopuff Platform. In order to be eligible for a Referral Reward (defined below) for a new customer, the person must (i) have never previously created a Gopuff account; (ii) be at least 18 years old, (iii) be a resident in a market that Gopuff currently serves, and (iv) satisfy the applicable Reward Criteria, as discussed below. If these conditions are met, the person shall be considered your “Referred Customer.”
- Invitations through the Gopuff Platform
- Other Invitations
You may also invite eligible individuals to become new customers by distributing your Gopuff Code directly and instructing them to manually input your Gopuff Code into the Gopuff App. A customer will not be able to apply your Gopuff Code if (i) they’ve already applied another customer’s Gopuff Code or a different promotion code, or (ii) they’ve already received Gopuff credit from Gopuff or another source on their customer account prior to entry of your Gopuff Code. If a customer does not enter your Gopuff Code you will not receive attribution for the referral and they will not be considered your Referred customer. Gopuff reserves the right to supply new customers with Gopuff credit or sign-on bonuses at its discretion.
- Disclosures to Referrals
You must disclose to all Referees that you are receiving compensation for any referrals that you make, which may include cash, discounts, Gopuff products and series, promotional items, or other items of value.
- Referred Customers
You are eligible to earn a referral incentive (“Referral Reward”) for each Referee that you refer to the Gopuff Platform (subject to certain maximum limits and the other terms in these Referral Program Rules). Referral Rewards can only be earned for Referrals in the United States. As discussed above, in order to qualify as your Referee, the new customer must satisfy the applicable Reward Criteria. The Reward Criteria are set by Gopuff in its sole discretion and are subject to change at any time. The Reward Criteria may vary by market or within a particular market. Gopuff, at its sole discretion, may make available certain promotions with different Reward Criteria or Referral Rewards to other customers or prospective customers. These promotions, unless offered to you, shall have no bearing whatsoever on your Agreement or relationship with Gopuff.
- Earning Rewards for Referred Customers
New customers you refer may receive Gopuff credit upon creating their new Gopuff account (“Referral Credit”). Referral Credit is only valid for use on the Gopuff Platform and is not transferable or redeemable for cash. Referral Credit may contain certain restrictions such as expiration dates or geographical use limitations which will be communicated to the new customer. In order to satisfy the Referral Criteria, the referred customer must make their first Gopuff purchase before the Referral Credit expires, but in no event later than thirty (30) days from the creation of their Gopuff account. All terms and conditions for the distribution and use of Referral Credit are determined by Gopuff in its sole discretion.
- Maximum Rewards for Referred Customers
The maximum amount of Referral Rewards that Gopuff will pay for Referred customers is $5,000 (either in cash, Gopuff credit, or a combination of the two). You may not create multiple Gopuff accounts to circumvent the Referral Reward maximum, and Gopuff may withhold or deny any amounts above the maximum Referral Reward. Gopuff reserves the right to change this maximum amount, and it is your responsibility to review the Referral Program Rules for the current maximum limits.
- Resolving Disputes over Referrals
Only one person can earn a Referral Reward for a single Referred customer. In the event that multiple persons claim credit for a particular referral, Gopuff has full discretion to determine which person earned such referral according to Gopuff’s systems.
- Reservation of rights
Gopuff reserves the right to withhold or deduct Referral Rewards or Referral Credit obtained through the Referral Program in the event that Gopuff determines or believes that the receipt of the Referral Reward or Referral Credit was in error, fraudulent, illegal, or in violation of these Referral Program Rules or any other applicable agreement between you and Gopuff.
