How long do I have to wait before the money gets credited to my account?

As soon as we’ve verified all the details, we will deposit the bonus cash into your IG account when we process the pay-out, which will take place twice a month. If your reward does not arrive within this time, please contact our rewards team at premiumdesk@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 premiumdesk@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. However, 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 use them to exchange for more bonus cash into your IG account. 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.
