How does Bonus Referral work?
Looking to invite a friend to the ‘verse? Great! Read on to ensure neither of you miss out on this year’s epic referral bonus.
What’s this referral bonus about?
In our greatest referral bonus to date, new and veteran players alike have the opportunity to walk (or hover) away in Drake’s universe-renowned hover bike, the Dragonfly, for free!
When you recruit a new player to the ‘verse and when they meet requirements by obtaining a game package (min value of USD 40$ on the Pledge Store), you’ll BOTH receive a Drake Dragonfly for free, alongside the usual 5,000 United Earth Credits. Plus, recruiters will also get a Recruitment Point for our regular Referral Program.
This promotion only lasts until January 11th, 2021 (EOD 11:59 PM PTD), so don’t miss out!
How to refer a friend?
Your friends must add your personal referral code when creating their account. This is crucial, as the code CANNOT be added after the account is created.
Where do I find my personal referral code?
Check the Referral Program Page to find your referral code.
Your Referral Code is unique. Share it any way you like, on social media, email, or your own website, and ask your friends to use it when creating an account on the RSI website.
What’s in it for me?
Recruiting one friend (1 Referral Point) grants the swift Drake Dragonfly, the perfect snub ship for anyone looking to live on the edge. With nothing separating the pilot from the dangers of space, the Dragonfly is as much an adventure as a ship! Dual-mode conversion allows the Dragonfly to operate on the ground or in space, and a rear-facing second seat means you can even take a passenger!
Note: We’ll launch a Dragonfly Free Fly until January 11, 2021, so everyone can test fly the Dragonfly and enjoy the advantages of the nimble speeder over the holidays. Players joining the ‘verse with a referral code during this time AND the recruiter will get to keep a Dragonfly with LTI (in-game lifetime insurance) after January 11, 2021.
What is the regular Referral Program?
The regular Referral Program empowers you to become a driving force behind the growth of the Star Citizen Community. Plus, you’ll unlock cool in-game rewards, from exclusive hangar items to massive warships. Check the Referral Program Page to take a glimpse at our recruitment rewards ladder.
Okay, so I see the Dragonfly in-game that I can fly for free during the promotion… but when will I get the Drake Dragonfly (referral reward) that I get to keep?
Recruiters will see the Drake Dragonfly show up on their web-hangar the moment their recruited player meets the referral criteria ($40 USD). The new player will see the Drake Dragonfly show up on their web-hangar on January 11.
Are there any limitations to the referral reward?
Yes. The Drake Dragonfly given out as a referral reward will be non-meltable and non-giftable.
Do the standard Referral Program and the limited Alpha 3.12 Referral Bonus work together?
Yes! While the Alpha 3.12 Referral Bonus only runs until January 11, 2021, our regular Referral Program is an ongoing initiative. During this promotion, both referral initiatives will be active at the same time. So no matter if it’s your first referred friend or your 100th, you will both still earn a Drake Dragonfly Black.
