RefAround.com: The first referral matchmaking service

RefAround.com is a community site that enables its users to share refer-a-friend offers with each other on both our site and other social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, and Google +. Unlike other sites that consolidate coupons and promotional codes, Refaround relies on the power of social media and user generated content. We review all offers to ensure their quality value to our users.

How does it work? Refer a friend offers are increasingly popular as a relatively low cost way for companies to acquire new customers and retain existing customers by offering discounts or other incentives. RefAround.com matches referrers and referees with one another. We currently list almost 150 refer a friend offers on our site, and over 300 referrers available for these offers. The nationally known companies with offers featured on our site range from mobile phone carriers (AT&T, Verizon) and tech startups (Dropbox), to wine merchants (Cameron Hughes, TastingRoom) and jewelers (Blue Nile).


For these companies, RefAround.com provides a way for their refer a friend offers to become known to a greater number of potential customers by providing:
  • A single place to find and compare a large number of refer a friend offers.
  • An easy way for potential customers find referrers for an offer.
  • One-click access to all of the information needed by both referrer and referee to complete the referral.

    • RefAround.com has the most comprehensive collection of refer-a-friend offers.
      Even better, RefAround.com is totally free. We generate revenue based on ads and partnerships. There are no subscription costs, commissions or fees for RefAround.com users.

      Check out the Testimonials. So far, our most of our publicity has come from the enthiastic word of mouth of our users (and of course Google)!

      RefAround.com, the first social network for the savvy consumer!
      RefAround.com allows users to post referral ads for as many refer a friend offers as they like. There are currently over 300 referral ads on the site! One small caveat: to become a referrer, the user must be a current customer of the company offering the refer a friend deal. Most likely, you are already available to become a referrer for your mobile phone carrier, credit card provider, insurance companies, or ISP.


      In your referral ad, just provide the information required by the company in order to identify you as the referrer (usually a link or email address). The person who becomes your referrer will sign up for the offer using your referral information, and that's it! Here's an example of a referral ad.

      You can also add your friends, family, and contacts to your friend list on RefAround.com, so that your ad will be at the top of the search results when they search for referrers for a given offer.
