What is the Refer a Friend program and how does it work?

The Refer a Friend program is currently offering bonus referral incentives to a limited number of users. If you do not see a referral option on your account, please check back at a later time. We are constantly updating our offerings to make sure you get the best experience possible.


Our referral program is a way for you to earn Shopping Rewards by referring friends and family to Capital One Shopping. 


Current Eligible Customers:

  • Verify your email address and phone number in your account.
  • Send your unique referral link to anyone you think would love Capital One Shopping.
  • If the referred customer completes all the steps below, you are eligible for $$$ in Shopping Rewards!
  • There is no limit to how many referrals you can send, but there is a limit to the amount you are able to receive in referral bonuses.


In order for you both to receive a referral bonus, your referred customer must complete the following steps:

  • Sign up for Capital One Shopping for the first time using the unique referral link sent to you
  • Install the Capital One Shopping desktop or Safari iOS browser extension and enable full permissions
  • Verify your account with a valid, unique email address and phone number
  • Regularly use the extension and shop as you normally would over a 90-day period


Bonuses will be automatically applied to you and your referred customer’s Capital One Shopping accounts within 14 days of completion of these steps. 


The referral program is only available for selected accounts based in the United States. Both the referred customer and referring customer must be based in the United States and referral links cannot be used outside the United States. Only for participants 18 years and older. Additional terms apply; please see section 9e of our Terms of Service for more details.
