FAQ – for Referrers (Existing TELUS customers)

How do I make a referral?

To make a referral, sign in to your TELUS My Account.

How many friends can I refer?

There is no limit to the number of referrals you can send to your friends.  However, you are limited to the following referral reward value maximums per calendar year:
1.     Home Solutions - $200
2.     Mobility - $300

Who can I refer?

You can refer friends or family who are currently not TELUS customers. TELUS team members, contractors and sales representatives acting on TELUS' behalf are excluded from this Program.

Can I refer someone for Mobility who wants to bring their own device to TELUS?

Yes. The person you refer can either buy a phone from TELUS or bring their own device, either way; you will both get a $50 bill credit for a successful referral.

If my friend is already a TELUS customer, but I told him/her to renew their contract, can I still get a referral credit?

In order to qualify for a referral credit, your friend must be a new TELUS customer who activated after they were sent the referral.

When will you call my friend?

We will call the person you referred within 2 days after your referral is submitted. If we are unable to reach them we will try back at another time. If the contact number you provided is registered on the Do Not Call List we will not be able to contact your friend.

Will you give out my friend's contact information?

TELUS will not give out your friend's information. View our Privacy Policy by clicking here.

When will I receive my reward?

1.     Rewards for Home Services will be a $50 Amazon.ca Gift Card per service activated. You will receive your gift card within 8 weeks from the date your friend had their services installed. Amazon.ca Gift Card terms and conditions are available here.

2.     Reward for Mobility service will be a $50 bill credit applied to your TELUS account. Bill credits are applied within 3-4 weeks of process completion. Bill credits may vary by province. Credit provided is discretionary and includes applicable taxes (based on the taxes levied in the province of supply) therefore the value displayed on your bill is the value before tax. For example, a $10 discretionary credit towards Internet service offered in BC includes $0.62 PST and $0.45 GST, meaning the credit value displayed will be $8.93. The $0.62 PST and $0.45 are captured as reductions in the amount of tax charged on your balance owing. For more information and examples that apply to other home services, please visit telus.com/billcredits.

How can I check the status of my referral?

Because we cannot discuss details associated with a client's account with anyone except the client we will not be able to confirm for you if your friend subscribes to TELUS services. Please call your friend to see if they have subscribed to TELUS home services as the result of your referral. If your friend has subscribed to a TELUS service as the result of your referral and it has been more than 8 weeks since their installation and you have not received your gift card please email referrals@telus.com with your full name, TELUS Home Phone number or account number and the full name and phone number of the friend you referred. We will look into the status of the referral and let you know if you should be expecting a gift card. Due to client privacy the information that TELUS can provide is very limited.

Can I refer friends to products that I don't subscribe to?

Yes, as long as you are a TELUS customer (TELUS Mobility, Home Phone, Internet, TV or Smarthome Security) you are able to refer customers to TELUS and receive a reward.

If my friend is already a TELUS customer can I still refer them to new services?

Yes, as long as they do not currently have the service you are referring them to and have not had that service in the past 90 days.

What if someone else also refers my friend?

The first referral received will be credited with the customer's referral. Referrals are considered expired 30 days after the submission.

Will I be informed if my friend does not sign up?

No. TELUS takes our customers' privacy rights very seriously. We cannot confirm which services a customer subscribes to.

What if my friend orders TELUS services before they are called for the referral?

1.     Home Services
Only home service subscriptions purchased when the TELUS representative calls your friend as a result of your referral will be compensated with a referral gift. If your friend purchases TELUS home services through any other sales channel, the referral will not be compensated.
2.     Mobility
Only mobility services purchased when or after the TELUS representative calls your friend will be compensated with a referral gift. Your friend may go to the store to activate their service after that communication, but the referral will not be recognized unless they follow the instructions given to them by the TELUS representative to finalize the referral.

What if my friend has had TELUS services in the past?

You can refer a friend to services they have not subscribed to in the past 90 days.

Can I refer someone who lives in the same household?

No you cannot refer yourself or anyone else in your household.

How long is a referral active?

The referral is active for 30 days. If your friend has not signed up for service within 30 days of the referral being submitted it is considered closed.
