Star Citizen community is growing fast. The reasons for this are great game, ambitious plans of Roberts Space Industries and of course “Refer a Friend” promotion. This guide explains what this promo is about and what Referral Rewards Star Citizen offers to affiliates.
The program works similar to other “Refer a Friend” promotions. You receive special code that you distribute as a link. All people who click your link, create a new account at RSI website and purchase Star Citizen game package (minimum value $40 USD) become your referrals. You receive 1 Recruitment Point for every real player you invite.
When a player uses your link for registration he automatically receives 5,000 UEC (United Earth Credits) which he can use for purchasing anything in RSI store. This bonus can be used for promoting your link.
Your referral code is the key. RSI website gives you the code without any links, but you can transform it into a link. Just use following sample:
Replace YOUR-CODE-HERE with your referral code and you are done. The link is much easier to use. Feel free to share it in social networks, use it in your forum signatures or send it to your friends via e-mail. All new players who click it and register become your referrals.
Pay Attention: a user must create a new account and purchase the game in order to become your referral. Otherwise you will not receive Recruitment point. Thus you don’t get points if you send existing players to RSI website.
There are 6 Affiliate ranks right now. Every stage offers new rewards but requires you to bring more people. The more people use your link for registration and purchasing the game the higher you climb.
