The OnePlus 3T is nearing the end of its retail life, and the company will soon launch its new flagship-class handset, the 5, featuring a Snapdragon 835 processor. Ahead of its announcement of the 5, OnePlus has today introduced its new referral program.
"Anyone who’s ever bought a OnePlus smartphone past, present, or future, can get a unique referral link," OnePlus said today. "Once you’ve got a link, just share it with someone interested in buying a OnePlus device and wait for them to hit the order button."
The referral program is the company's latest effort to encourage its customers to spread the word about its products, helping it to boost awareness of the brand and its devices without spending large sums on advertising. In exchange for recommending its products to friends and family, OnePlus is offering rewards to its customers for those referrals.
"If your friend uses your link to purchase a OnePlus smartphone," the firm explained, "they’ll receive $20 - or an equivalent amount in your local currency - off on an accessory of their choosing. No more than 30 days later, we’ll drop 100 referral points in your referral hub."
Customers can then spend those points on a range of items, including discount vouchers, accessories, and OnePlus-branded merchandise, such as T-shirts or bags.
"We know that for years, you guys have been telling your friends about OnePlus for free," the company added. "With the referral program, we want to reward you for all that you do for us."
