*By participating in Venmo’s "Invite Parents" promotion (the "Program" or “Invite Parents Program”), you agree to the following terms and conditions (the "Terms"). Venmo has the right, at any time and in its sole discretion, and without prior notice, to terminate, cancel, suspend or modify the Program or these terms.
The Invite Parents Program allows you to invite people you know to sign up for a U.S. Venmo account. You can earn a reward when a person you invite to join Venmo through the Program signs up and completes an Eligible Transaction (defined below). If you are the person inviting an individual to join Venmo, you are a "referrer" under these terms, and if you are a person who receives an invitation, you are a "referee."
- The Promotional Period, Eligibility, and Overview
1.1. The Program is active from December 19, 2019 at 12.00am EST to January 15, 2020 at 11.59pm EST time (the “Promotional Period”).
1.2. To be eligible to earn rewards through the Program, a referrer must: (1) have a U.S. Venmo account in good standing (“Valid Account”) at the time they invite referee(s) through when his/her reward(s) are issued; and (2) receive an authorized invitation from Venmo to participate in the Program. To be eligible as a referee: (1) the referee must not have or previously had a Venmo account; and (2) the phone number/email address provided must not be tied to an existing or previously existing Venmo account.
The referrer may refer a referee by inviting them to sign up for Venmo or by sending them a Venmo person-to-person payment. The referrer can claim a reward for a maximum of 5 referees that satisfy the following “Reward Criteria”: (i) access and complete the Venmo sign up process; (ii) link his/her bank, credit card or debit card to their Venmo account; (iii) verify their cell number or email linked to their Venmo account; and (iv) complete an Eligible Transaction (defined below) within the Promotional Period. An “Eligible Transaction” means: a person-to-person payment sent to the referrer, that must be the very first payment using the Venmo app using the referee’s new Venmo account that is marked as ‘received’ by the referrer.
1.3. Transactions that have been cancelled, refunded, declined, or reversed by either the referee, referrer, Venmo, or the seller do not count as Eligible Transactions.
1.4. The reward amount is $10 USD. There is a limit of one (1) reward per referee Valid Account and five (5) rewards per referrer Valid Account (max referrer payout is $50.00 USD) throughout the entire reward period. If two or more referrers invite the same referee, Venmo will credit the reward to the referrer who receives a completed Venmo payment first, as determined in Venmo’s sole discretion. Only the first (5) referees per referrer to fulfill the Reward Criteria will earn a reward.
2.1. You may only refer parents, family and acquaintances. Additionally, you must not publish or distribute the invitation to participate that you received from Venmo in public locations (online or otherwise) where the audience is likely to include people who are not your parents, family or personal acquaintances. If you do so, Venmo may disqualify you from participation in the Program and any successful referrals will be void, in Venmo’s sole discretion.
- Receiving and Using Rewards
3.1. Rewards will post to your account no later than January 31, 2020, 11.59pm EST.
3.2. Venmo reserves the right to limit, cancel, or revoke a reward if Venmo determines, in its sole discretion, that you have violated these terms and conditions, or if we restrict or close your account pursuant to our User Agreement.
3.3 Venmo may provide an alternate reward of equal value if it is unable for any reason to fulfil the reward. Venmo is not responsible and/or liable for any lost, stolen, late, incomplete, illegible, interrupted, delayed, or misdirected e-mail, reward, or Program-related materials or correspondence or if any participant’s e-mail address, Valid Account, or other contact information does not work, is deleted, or is changed without participant giving prior written notice to Venmo. Program is void where prohibited, if referrals or Eligible Transactions are not completed through legitimate channels, or if any Program-related materials (including, without limitation, referrals and Eligible Transactions) are fraudulent, counterfeit, altered, defective, tampered with or irregular in any way.
