The following describes the terms of service which apply to participation in the referral or account opening promotional programs (collectively, the “Referral Programs”) currently offered by Social Finance, Inc. (“SoFi”) and its affiliates. If you wish to participate in any Referral Program described below, you agree to the terms for such Referral Program described in Part I below, as well as the General Terms and Conditions in Part II, which apply to all Referral Programs.
Loan Referral Program
The terms below and those set forth in Part II govern your participation in SoFi Lending Corp’s (“SLC”) Loan Referral Program (the “Loan Referral Program”) described below. The Loan Referral Program is open to all current SLC customers with funded accounts in good standing, who reside outside of Vermont (the “Eligible Loan Referrer(s)”).
Eligible Loan Referrers are limited to refer friends, colleagues, family members, and other people they (collectively, the “Eligible Loan Recipient(s)”) believe may be interested in applying for a Student Loan Refinancing Loan, Medical Resident Refinancing Loan, Dental Resident Refinancing Loan, Parent PLUS Refinancing Loan, or Personal Loan (collectively, the “Eligible Loan(s)”). SLC reserves the right to disqualify anyone from participating in the Loan Referral Program at any time. The Eligible Loan Referrers will NOT receive a Loan Referral Bonus for referrals for any other SLC loan products. Anyone who violates these terms and conditions is ineligible for payment of any bonus.
To receive credit for a referral under the Loan Referral Program, Eligible Loan Referrers must send their unique referral link to an Eligible Loan Recipient, and the Eligible Loan Recipient must use their Eligible Loan Referrer’s unique referral link to apply for an Eligible Loan. If the Eligible Loan Recipient uses the Eligible Loan Referrer’s unique referral link to apply for an Eligible Loan which is approved and funds (a “Funded Eligible Loan”), SLC or its designee shall pay to: (a) the Eligible Loan Referrer, a one-time $300 referral bonus for each Funded Eligible Loan (the “Loan Referral Bonus”); and (b) the Eligible Loan Recipient, a one-time $100 welcome bonus for such Funded Eligible Loan (the “Loan Welcome Bonus”). Only one Loan Referral Bonus and one Loan Welcome Bonus will be awarded for each referred Eligible Loan Recipient, regardless of whether the Eligible Loan Recipient takes out multiple Eligible Loans.
An Eligible Loan Referrer will not earn Loan Referral Bonus if the Eligible Loan Recipient has or had an existing funded SoFi loan account, or if the Eligible Loan Recipient does not use the unique referral link provided by the Eligible Loan Referrer.
If the Eligible Loan Recipient already has a SoFi loan account, is on our opt-out list or the national email opt-out list, or has already used another Eligible Loan Referrer’s unique referral link, the Eligible Loan Recipient may not be sent an email. We cannot disclose to you any information about Funded Eligible Loans opened by any Eligible Loan Recipients you refer to us. Participation in the Loan Referral Program serves as a one-time limited waiver of privacy rights by both parties, whereby each may become aware of the presence of an account relationship with SLC.
Invest Referral Program
The terms below and those set forth in Part II govern your participation in the SoFi Invest Referral Program (the “Invest Referral Program”). The Invest Referral Program is open to all current SoFi Active Invest account holders who meet the criteria below, and wish to refer someone to open a SoFi Invest account offered by SoFi Securities LLC. A referrer must have a SoFi Invest account offered by SoFi Securities LLC (either an Automated Invest account or an Active Invest account) which is funded and in good standing (i.e., not suspended) (an “Eligible Invest Referrer(s)”).
The Eligible Invest Referrers are encouraged to refer friends, colleagues, family members, and anyone else they believe may be interested in opening a SoFi Active Invest account (the “Eligible Invest Recipient(s)”). The Eligible Invest Referrers will NOT receive an Invest Referral Bonus for referrals for a SoFi Automated Invest account. SoFi Securities LLC, or its designee (collectively, “SoFi Securities”) reserve the right to disqualify anyone from participation in the Invest Referral Program at any time.
To receive credit for a referral made under the Invest Referral Program, an Eligible Invest Referrer must access their own unique referral link and send it to the Eligible Invest Recipient(s) whom they wish to refer to open a new SoFi Active Invest Account (an “New Active Invest Account”). The Eligible Invest Recipient must use the Eligible Invest Referrer’s unique referral link to open and fund a New Active Invest Account within 14 Business days after receipt of the Eligible Invest Referrer’s unique referral link.
For each Eligible Invest Recipient who opens and funds a New Active Invest Account, as described herein, SoFi Securities will: (a) credit an Invest account of the Eligible Invest Referrer with a one-time cash referral bonus in the amount specified in the promotional campaign associated with the unique referral link that was used for the referral (the “Invest Referral Bonus”); and (b) credit the New Active Invest Account of the Eligible Invest Recipient, with a one-time welcome bonus in the amount specified in the promotional campaign associated with the unique referral link that was used for the referral (the “Invest Welcome Bonus”). Only one Invest Referral Bonus and one Invest Welcome Bonus will be awarded for each referred Eligible Invest Recipient, regardless of whether the Eligible Invest Recipient opens and funds multiple accounts. An Eligible Invest Referrer will not earn an Invest Referral Bonus if the Eligible Invest Recipient has or had an existing funded SoFi Invest account or does not use the unique referral link provided by the Eligible Invest Referrer.
Please note that if the Eligible Invest Recipient already has an Invest account, is on our opt-out list or on the national email opt-out list, or has already used another Eligible Invest Referrer’s unique referral link, SoFi Securities will not send an email to such Eligible Invest Recipient. We cannot disclose to you any information about New Active Invest Accounts opened by any Eligible Invest Recipients you refer to us. Participation in the Invest Referral Program serves as a one-time, limited waiver of privacy rights by both you and the Eligible Invest Recipient, pursuant to which each may become aware that the other has an account relationship with SoFi Securities.
Money Referral Program
The terms below and those set forth in Part II govern your participation in the SoFi Securities LLC (“SoFi Securities”) Money Referral Program (the “Money Referral Program”). The Money Referral Program is open to all current SoFi Money account holders who meet the criteria below, and who wish to refer someone to open a SoFi Money account. A referrer must be a SoFi Money customer with a Money account which is in good standing (i.e. not suspended) (an “Eligible Money Referrer(s)”).
The Eligible Money Referrers are encouraged to refer friends, colleagues, family members, and anyone else whom they have reason to believe may be interested in opening a Money account (the “Eligible Money Recipient(s)”).
To receive credit for a referral made under the Money Referral Program, an Eligible Money Referrer must access their own unique referral link and send it to the Eligible Money Recipient(s), whom they wish to refer to open a new SoFi Money account (a “New Money Account”). The Eligible Money Recipient must use the Eligible Money Referrer’s unique referral link to open the New Money Account.
For each Eligible Money Recipient who opens and funds a New Money Account with $100 or more within fourteen (14) days of receiving their Eligible Money Referrer’s unique link, SoFi Securities or its designee will: (a) credit the Money account of the Eligible Money Referrer, with a one-time referral bonus in the amount specified in the promotional campaign associated with the unique referral link that was used for the referral (the “Money Referral Bonus”); and (b) credit the New Money Account of the Eligible Money Recipient, with a one-time welcome bonus in the amount specified in the promotional campaign associated with the unique referral link that was used for the referral (the “Money Welcome Bonus”). Only one Money Referral Bonus and one Money Welcome Bonus will be awarded for each referred Eligible Money Recipient, regardless of whether the Eligible Money Recipient opens and funds multiple accounts. An Eligible Money Referrer will not earn a Money Referral Bonus if the Eligible Money Recipient has or had an existing funded SoFi Money account, or does not use the unique referral link provided by the Eligible Money Referrer.
If the Eligible Money Recipient already has a Money account, is on our opt-out list or the national email opt-out list, or has already received and used another Eligible Money Referrer’s unique referral link, SoFi Securities will not send an email to the Eligible Money Recipient. We cannot disclose to you any information about New Money Account opened by any Eligible Money Recipient you refer to us. Participation in the Money Referral Program serves as a one-time, limited waiver of privacy rights by both you and the Eligible Money Recipient, pursuant to which each may become aware that the other has an account relationship with SoFi Securities.
In no event will any person be entitled to receive more than $10,000 in cumulative referrals or welcome bonuses under these Referral Programs within any calendar year. Referral Bonuses and Welcome Bonuses are each considered miscellaneous income and may be reportable to the IRS on Form 1099-MISC (or Form 1042-S, if applicable).
If you participate in any of the Invest Referral Program, Money Referral Program, or the Loan Referral Program described above (collectively, the “Referral Program(s)”), you agree not to participate in any other solicitations for SoFi products. Other than as set forth herein, you agree not to compensate or accept any compensation from applicants whom you refer to SoFi through any of the corresponding Referral Programs described above. You further agree that your activities will be limited to referring potential customers as described above, so they may independently decide whether to apply. You may not collect information from eligible recipients under any Referral Program, assist with filling out an application, or discuss specific product terms.
You must comply with all applicable laws and regulations, in soliciting referrals. Eligible referrers may not purchase internet search terms or publicly advertise SoFi’s products or name in any fashion. Further, any distribution of a program link that could constitute unsolicited commercial email or “spam,” any content which impersonates or implies an affiliation with or endorsement by SoFi or any SoFi subsidiary, or any actions which otherwise violate any terms or conditions imposed by SoFi, are prohibited and will be grounds for immediate termination from a Referral Program. We will not honor referral payments for referrals which are generated using any of the foregoing means.
Your participation in a Referral Program is solely as an independent contractor. Neither you nor SoFi intend to establish an employment relationship, and you are not entitled to any benefits. If the cumulative welcome or referral bonuses paid to an individual in one calendar year exceed $599 USD, then we may require completion of a Form W-9 prior to fund disbursement. Any payments that are not claimed within 180 days of the date the funds have been made available because either the direct deposit bank account or required tax information have not been provided are subject to forfeit.
Discontinuation of Previous Referral Program
The Referral Programs described herein replace all earlier versions of such SoFi referral programs. SoFi reserves the right to temporarily, or permanently modify or discontinue the Referral Programs at any time, for any reason, at our sole discretion and without notice to you.
