INFORMATION ON REFER-A-FRIEND PROGRAM
  1. What is Refer-a-Friend program?
    Refer-a-Friend is a rewards program exclusively for our customers who are our biggest fans. Whenever you refer another business to LandWatch and they sign up within 60 days because of your referral, we will send you a $50 check for first 5 friends that signed up. Oh, and because the real estate professionals you refer are your friends, each friend will get a $50 check as well. Now that's a pretty sweet friendship.
  2. How can I refer a new real estate professional?
    After you become a LandWatch customer, login to your MyLandWatch account and click the "Refer a Friend" button at the top of the page. This will take you to our Refer-a-Friend page where you will enter your friends contact information. One of our sales associates will contact your friends to tell them more about LandWatch services and sign them up. When your friends sign up for any LandWatch advertising services, you will be eligible to receive a $50 check for each friend who signed up, up to five friends total – for a combined reward of $250.
  3. When will I receive a check for $50?
    Be on the lookout for a check in your mailbox within 4-6 weeks after each friend signs up. Keep in mind, to receive $50 referral bonus, you must be a current customer and your account must be in good standing. All checks will be sent to the billing address we have on file for your account.
  4. How many friends can I refer?
    While there is no limit to how many friends you can refer, the $50 cash reward will only apply to your first 5 friends who sign up, for a total maximum cash reward of $250. Keep in mind, every friend you refer that signs up will still be eligible to receive $50, even if more than 5 friends sign up.
  5. I referred a friend, but I have not received my award. Now what?
    To ensure that you receive your $50 reward, be sure to provide your LandWatch account number and use the email address on file for your LandWatch account when referring friends. If your friend contacts us before we get a chance to contact them, your friend must sign up with the same information you have provided when referring them or they must let the sales representative know you referred them when signing up. If multiple customers refer the same person, the cash reward will go to the customer whose name friend used when signing up with LandWatch. Keep in mind that existing advertisers are not considered valid referrals.
  6. What if multiple customers refer the same real estate professionl?
    If multiple customers refer the same person, the cash reward will go to the customer whose name friend used when signing up with LandWatch.
  7. How can I ensure my friend's privacy will not be infringed upon?
    LandWatch undertakes to protect the information of all customers and referrals, and will never share either your or your friend's account information with any other third party.
