Refer Members and Earn Credit Towards your Membership!

We are excited to announce that you can now earn credit towards your Once a Month Meals membership when you refer new members to our service!

Hooray for saving even more money! 🎉 For every member you refer, you will get a $5 credit on your account that applies to your next renewal on your membership.  It’s so easy to get started and refer members, see the details and instructions below. But first, a few nuts and bolts so you know how the program works.

The Nuts and Bolts

  • You can earn $5 for each new member you refer to Once a Month Meals.  Your referral must sign up for a membership (monthly or yearly) to earn the credit.
  • You earn the same credit whether your referral signs up for a monthly or yearly membership.
  • There is no limit on the number of referrals you can earn.
  • Once a Month Meals is only open during certain times for new members with our membership model.  You only earn credit during our open periods when we are open for new members.
  • During closed periods, you can use your link to refer potential members to our waitlist.  If your referral signs up to the waitlist with your referral link, you will earn credit when we open next and if the referral signs up at that time for a membership.
  • If your referral clicks on another member’s referral link after yours, then you won’t earn the credit.  The most recent person to refer them earns the credit.

FAQs

Q: What counts as a referral?

A: A referral is any new member who signs up for a paying membership with Once a Month Meals.

Q: What is a new member?

A: A new member is someone who has never had a Once a Month Meals membership with us before.  If your referral is someone who had a previous account with us, the referral does not count.

Q: What is a credit on my account?

A credit on your account means for every referral (successful signup to Once a Month Meals), you get $5 credited on your account for future purchases.  So if you are on a monthly plan for $18 and you got 2 referrals for the month ($5 x 2 = $10) you would only be charged $8 instead of the $18 when your membership renews again.

Q: Do I get more credit if I am a yearly member vs. a monthly member referring new members?

A: All members regardless of their membership level get the same $5 credit for each referral.

Q: Do I get more credit if my referral signs up for a yearly membership instead of a monthly membership?

A: No, all membership referrals regardless of level (monthly vs. yearly) result in a $5 credit.

Q: I just renewed on the 12th for my membership and then got a referral on the 13th, when will I get my credit?

A: You will get your credit the next time your account renews again (the 12th of he next month if you are a monthly member or the 12th of the next year if you are a yearly member).

Q: Does my referral have to use my link to sign up at that moment or can they come back later and sign up?

A: Your referral link is good for 90 days from when you copy and share it.  This means if your referral comes to the site but signs up 5 days later, you should still earn the credit as long as they didn’t delete the cookie associated with your referral link from their browser.

Q: A person I referred signed up for a membership, but I don’t see it on my referrals.  What happened?

A: There are a few things that could have happened: 1) your referral didn’t use your link to sign up, 2) your referral deleted the cookie associated with your referral link (or has cookies disabled on their browser), or 3) they used another referral link after yours to sign up.  If you have questions/concerns, reach out to us at info@onceamonthmeals.com
