The best way to earn rewards is by recommending Dinner Elf to friends. 

What you earn

Earn $5 in rewards every time friends in your network complete appointments.

Friend appt #1 You earn $5 in rewards
Friend appt #2 You earn $5 in rewards
Friend appt #3... Up to $250 per friend

💡Earn rewards from unlimited friends (e.g. 5 friends x $250 max per friend = $1250 in rewards).

Add friends 

Friends are added to your referral network if they haven't completed an appointment yet and

use your referral code, or    
receive a Dinner Elf gift from you, or
receive or donate to a group gift started by you, or
use a fundraising code requested by you.

Share your referral code

On your rewards page or any appointment page, use the buttons to share your referral code. Friends receive $10 off their first appointment.
