TDS Referral Program FAQs
How Do I Earn Referral Bill Credits?
By referring new customers to TDS! The new customer simply has to list your name (and phone number) as the person who referred them when ordering. When they do, you'll each earn a $25 bill credit for each qualifying service ordered (up to $75). It's a win-win for both of you!
What Are the Restrictions?
Well, the customers you refer have to be new to TDS. And they must live in our serving area (obviously!). You can earn a maximum of $75 in credits for each new customer that's referred-up to $450 credits in a calendar year. New customers must keep their services for 90 days in order for both parties to earn the credits.
How Many Credits Can I Earn?
You can earn a maximum of $450 in bill credits in one calendar year! That's up to $75 for each person you refer. And remember, the people you refer will also receive bill credits.
When Will I Receive My Bill Credits?
Bill credits will appear on your bill about 90 days (depending on your bill cycle) after the referral's new service is installed as long as your account is active and currently receiving TDS service.
Can I participate in Refer a Friend and still receive a promotional offer?
Absolutely! You can receive referral program bill credits in addition to any promotional offer you might qualify for.
What Happens If Someone Cancels Their Service?
Everyone at TDS cries. Seriously. We really hate losing customers. But sometimes we know it can't be helped (people do move, after all!). So, here's what happens:
If the existing TDS customer (the referrer) cancels service within 90 days of the new customer's install, no bill credits are applied to the existing customer's account. The new customer will still receive bill credits if they maintain their service for 90 days.
If the new customer (the referral) cancels TDS service within 90 days of their services being installed, neither party (referrer or referral) receives bill credits.
Can TDS Employees Participate in Refer a Friend Referral?
No. Employees of TDS Telecom, its parent company, subsidiaries, and affiliates are not eligible to participate in the TDS Refer a Friend Referral Program.
