    “… I would share [Root] all day every day for free! But their amazing referral program offsets the cost of my policy—which is amazing—on top of the huge savings they’ve already provided me! Their pricing, customer service, and $25 checks for referring friends are why I’ve sent 48 friends and still counting their way!”

    “I tell everyone I can about Root! Love the concept of getting a quote based on how you drive! Plus, I get paid for telling everyone about the latest innovation in car insurance…”

    “Because of my great experience with Root I couldn't wait to share it with others. The fact that my friends got a check just for getting a quote was a huge plus! A lot of my friends and family switched too!”

How our referral program works

It’s simple. Just send your unique referral link to your friends. When they get a Root quote, you both get paid.

Still have questions?

  1. How much money do I get for a referral?

    It depends on your state, but it could range from $10 to $100 depending on where you live. Check the Accounts tab in the app to see how much you can get per referral.

  2. Do I have to have an insurance policy with Root to refer someone?

    Nope! If Root isn’t the right choice for you, you can still refer the friends whom you think would be a good fit. Just download the app, create a profile, and tap on the Refer Friends tab on the bottom of the screen.

  3. How many people can I refer?

    As many as you want, as long as they live in a state where Root is currently available.

  4. How long will it take to get paid?

    It depends on how you choose to claim your bonus:

    1. Gift card - we’ll send it to your email immediately
    2. PayPal - up to 1 business day
    3. Bank transfer - 2-4 business days
    4. Visa prepaid card - 5-7 business days (sent in the mail)

    If we send you a check, you can expect it in 2-3 weeks.

  5. Do my friends get anything?

    Yes! When a friend gets a quote, you’ll both get a cash bonus. (Plus, there’s a good chance they’ll be very happy with their new insurance rate.)

  6. How will I get paid?

    You’ll be able to claim your bonus right in the app. Here’s what you do:

    1. Make sure you have the most recent version of the Root app.
    2. Open the app.
    3. Tap on the Referral tab.
    4. Tap on the $ to see your unclaimed bonuses.
    5. Choose how to get your bonus.

    Each time you get a bonus, you can choose how you want to be paid. You can do cash (a bank account transfer, a Visa prepaid card, or PayPal), or you can receive a gift card to any of the awesome vendors provided.

    (Due to some restrictions, some people may not be able to claim their bonus in the app. Don’t worry! We’ll send you a check in the mail. The referral program is also not currently available in North Dakota.)
