Refer a friend scheme
We’ve already created our flexible tenancies and flexible payment plans, now it’s time for flexible referring! So we’ve decided to do it slightly different this time, with our easy-peasy Refer a Friend scheme.
Tell a friend about Student Roost and you'll receive a voucher worth £150! Refer as many friends as possible and for every successful sign-up, you could be nesting on a fortune. You're eligible to Refer a Friend if you fit one of the following criteria:
• You're a customer who's rebooked with Student Roost
• You're a customer that has not rebooked with Student Roost
• You're new to our Roosts and will join us in September 2018
• You're not (unfortunately) a customer of Student Roost
Now that's all cleared up, get referring and ensure that your referee adds your name to their booking as the person that shared the news about Student Roost.
Onto the specifics of the Refer a Friend scheme:
· RBK (Re-bookers): resident for 17-18, have already offered and accepted for 18-19
· NR (Non-Returner): resident for 17-18, will not stay with us 18-19
· NB (New Bookers): Are currently not living with us for the year of 17-18
· NRS (Non-Resident): Those who are not our resident, but are promoting Student Roost
· SR (Super Recruiter): Those who have recruited over 20 new bookers for Student Roost, who then becomes eligible for £175 per person after the 20th
N.B. (Referral offers are to be received by the individual making the referral only and not the student booking with us. Unless the student has made referrals of their own)
Airline, supermarket, retail, sports events, cinema, health/fitness, education, excursions, online retail e.g. Amazon.
Electronics, salons, restaurants.

We hope you'll love Student Roost as much as we do and want to refer as many friends to live with us as possible. When you reach 20 successful referrals, we’ll even increase your reward from £150 to £175 per person!
