Referral FAQ’s

What are the restrictions?

Referrals must be new-users to MileIQ, they have to create a new account by clicking on your personal referral link, and their Annual Premium subscription must remain active for 30 days.  If a referral cancels their subscription within 30 days, no bonus will be paid out.  

Referrals are not yet available to MileIQ UK users.


When will I get paid?

Referral bonuses are paid out 30 days after your friend has upgraded their account to an Annual Premium subscription.


How will I get paid?

Referral bonuses are claimed directly from the Refer a Friend page of the web dashboard.  For more information on claiming any available bonuses, see here: How to: Redeem a Referrals Bonus

You will be sent a $25 e-gift card in the form of a Tangocard (Tangocard Rewards Catalog) to the email address associated with your MileIQ account.  Be sure that the email on file is current and you have access to the inbox, as gift cards cannot be resent.  

To check the email address currently on file, from within the MileIQ app navigate to Menu > Account > Signed In:.  If you need to update this information, please see here: How to: Change Email / Username

Tangocards cannot be re-issued for any reason.  

Additionally, make sure is added to your list of authorized senders to prevent your bonus from getting caught in any spam filters.


Can my friend still get the discount for a monthly plan? Will I still receive a bonus?

No, referral discounts and bonuses can only be applied if your friend upgrades to an Annual Premium subscription using your personal referral link.


My friend said they upgraded, but I didn’t get the referral bonus.  How can I check?

To check on the status of your referrals, visit your web dashboard at (login using the same email and password as the app), click on Settings, then Referrals to see a complete history of your referrals and their current status.  


What if my friend upgraded through the iTunes/Google Play store?

Please contact us directly at if your friend upgrades through the iTunes or Google Play store.  We will do our best to honor the bonus.  


I’m not seeing the option to “Refer a Friend” in my app?
