What Is The Referral Program?
Glad you asked! If you refer a new customer to TextNow to sign up for a TextNow phone plan, we will credit both you and the person you referred $20.00 to your account balance. That $20 can be used towards future monthly service fees or phone plan upgrades.
How Does It Work?
At the moment, our referral program is only available for TextNow Android users. Don't worry, iPhone folks, we'll be unveiling this for the iOS version in the near future.
Open your TextNow app and click on the main menu button . Your main menu panel will slide open.
Tap on the blue menu selection Earn $20., and it will take you to the Referral Program page.
The code you see is your referral code. If a friend uses this code when they sign up for TextNow, they'll get a $20 credit added to their account credit - and so will you!
You can either copy the code from that page (by tapping Copy Your Code), or send your contact a message directly with the code and a link to sign up for TextNow by using Invite by Text or Invite by Email.
When does the money get credited?
When the person you referred purchases a phone or signs up for a plan, we will credit both you and the person you referred at the end of the purchase. You'll get a notification from TextNow saying that the person you referred has used the link.
For SIM card purchases, we will credit you and your referral when they activate the SIM card on the TextNow service. You'll get a push notification that they've used your link, and your friend or family member you referred will also see a banner notification as well.
Referral credit is not given for gift card purchases. It is only for phone, plan and SIM card purchases.
Help! I don't see the Earn $20 selection on my main menu!
The Earn $20 main menu selection is only available on Android TextNow versions 4.38.0 and later. If you don't see it on your Android phone, and you have a phone plan with us, update your Android app to the latest version.
The Earn $20 is not available on iOS... yet. It's coming soon!
Also note that Earn $20 will only be seen by existing TextNow phone plan subscribers. Free accounts will not have the referral section.
