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 see your credit balance and pick from our range of rewards at any time – just log in and go to ‘my account’, then ‘refer a friend’ and ‘view rewards’.

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 can be a spread bet with a minimum of £1, a CFD with a minimum size of one mini contract or equivalent, or a share dealing trade. 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 do I order the reward I want?

You can claim your reward directly via the platform. Simply log in and go to ‘my account’, then ‘refer a friend’ and ‘view rewards’. Choose ‘redeem rewards’, and pick from the options. When you’ve chosen a reward, a confirmation ticket will appear. Click the 'confirm order' button to complete the process. You will receive an email confirming your selection.

How long until the money gets credited to my account?

As soon as we’ve verified all the details, it will take 5-10 working for the money to appear in your account. If your reward does not arrive within this time, please contact our rewards team at helpdesk.uk@ig.com.

Where can I see how many credits I’ve earned?

You can find your current credit balance and a breakdown of the referrals you’ve made, including any credits earned and rewards claimed, in your referral history. You can find this by logging in to the platform and going to ‘my account’, then ‘refer a friend’. Click the ‘view rewards’ button, and choose ‘referral history’ from the list on the left.

You will receive your credit as long as your friend places five opening spread bets, CFDs or share dealing trades within six months of being referred.

How many referrals can I make?

You can make up to five referrals, and you’ll receive one credit for each referred friend who places five opening spread bets, CFDs or share dealing trades within six months of being referred. 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.

I’ve referred a friend, but can’t see the credit I’ve earned. Why is this?

You earn a credit when your friend places five opening spread bets, CFDs or share dealing trades within six months of being referred. When this happens, you will receive a notification by email. Until then, you can view details of your referrals and any credits earned in your referral history. To see this, log in to the platform and go to ‘my account’, then ‘refer a friend’. Click the ‘view rewards’ button, and choose ‘referral history’ from the list on the left.

If you think your credit balance is incorrect, please contact our rewards team at helpdesk.uk@ig.com.

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.
