The campaign is to incentivise our existing customers to introduce their friends to our powders. £40 is so that customers can use the discount on both one-off and recurring orders. Reducing the Flavour boosts to £2.50 each wouldn’t be financially viable.
Thank you for your suggestions, we would obviously love to do many of them but that would involve building an entirely new system from scratch. Or checking through hundreds of codes and thousands of orders manually. As I said previously, what you are describing is an affiliate scheme; companies have been built on an affiliate model and employ hundreds of people to monitor them. We will not allow referrers to stack as it effectively makes it this affiliate network and encourages sneaky stuff.
If someone was really interested in this then we could talk about it on an adhoc basis if they believed they could generate a large amount of referrals, probably hundreds. But we would need to talk to them before to set it up and track it.
What we will probably do soon is increase the discount for both parties to £7.50.
In our current system one Referee’s link can be used by multiple people. So this is possible for one link to be used by 10,000 different people but the ability to stack codes incentivises the behaviour I have previously described. The discount code website was one example of multiple ways that someone could play the affiliate system being described here.
The T&Cs have not been amended.
Thank you, that means a lot to us.
