FAQs

How do I claim a referral reward?

You can claim from our range of rewards in exchange for the credits you’ve earned. Each friend you refer earns you one credit. You can find out your credit balance and pick from our range of rewards at any time – just email referrals@ig.com.sg with the number of credits you wish to exchange and their value (e.g. ‘1 credit - SGD$100 trading credits’), including your username and account number.

What do I need to do to earn a reward credit?

Simply refer a friend using the online form, and we'll do the rest. You will receive your credit as long as your friend places five qualifying trades within six months of being referred.

A qualifying trade is a CFD trade with a minimum size of one mini contract or equivalent. Your credit will be added to your account automatically when the fifth trade is placed, and you'll receive a notification via email.

What rewards are available?

You can see all our reward choices at the top of this page. The more credits you have, the greater the rewards you can claim. It’s up to you whether you spend your credits straight away or save them up for later.

How long until the money gets credited to my account?

As soon as we’ve verified all the details, it can take up to 10 working days for the money to appear in your account. If your reward does not arrive within this time, please contact our rewards team at helpdesk@ig.com.sg.

How can I find out how many credits I’ve earned?

We’ll let you know by email when you earn a credit, and we’ll include your running total too. If you want to find out your credit balance, simply email referrals@ig.com.sg with your request, username and account number. We’ll get back to you as soon as we can. 

How many referrals can I make?

You can make as many referrals as you like, and you’ll receive one credit for each friend who becomes an active CFD trader within six months of being referred, placing five trades at 1 mini contract or more. The more credits you have, the greater rewards you can claim.

Please note that you cannot refer the same person to us more than once, or refer somebody who already holds an account with us.

How many credits do I need before I can claim a reward?

Rewards are available for just one credit. However, if you refer more friends you can earn more credits and claim higher-value gifts. You can save up your credits to redeem at a later date, or claim your reward immediately if you prefer.

Is there a time limit to redeem the credits I've earned?

There is no time limit or expiry for referral credits, so you can save them towards higher-value gifts with no fear of losing the credits you’ve already earned.

Will I be notified if my friend starts trading?

We'll send you a confirmation email when you have earned a credit, which you can use to claim your reward. However, in the interests of client privacy we will not reveal any information about your friend’s trading activity or account ownership.

* Must trade 5 opening trades of 1 mini contract or equivalent within 6 months to be considered to have started trading.
