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?
|Open your TextNow app and click on the main menu button . Your main menu panel should slide open.|
|Tap on Refer A Friend, and it will take you to the referral page.
Tap on either Invite By Text or Invite By Email, and we'll send the referral link to your friend or family member.
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 Refer A Friend selection on my main menu!
The Refer A Friend main menu selection is only available on Android TextNow versions 4.38.0 and later. If you don't see it on yours, and you have a phone plan with us, update your app to the latest version. Currently, the Refer A Friend feature is only available in the Android versions.
Also note that the referral selection will only be seen by existing TextNow phone plan subscribers. Free accounts will not have the referral section.
