Bring a Friend Program Overview
NOTE: Effective May 26th, 2022 we have updated our Bring a Friend program. As of this date, the value of our Referrals credits - both prospective and banked - will change from applying as a future $5 month to now apply as $20-off the next month’s service cost. The Visible New Member offer, when available, will be combinable with the new $20-off credits.
If you refer a new member to Visible, and the new member activates service, Both you and your friend’s next month’s all-in service costs will be reduced by $20. You can bank up to 12 referrals, so if you refer 12 new members who activate service with Visible, your all-in service costs will be reduced by $20 per month for each of the next 12 months (and the 12 new members you referred will each have received $20 off their first month of service). Learn more about the Referral Program in our Help Center: https://www.visible.com/help/
How it Works
1. Active Visible members can access a unique Bring a Friend code that they can share with non-customers.
2. To find your Bring a Friend code Log-in to your account and visit your Bring a Friend page (in the Account>Referrals section, click on the ‘Learn more’ button under the Bring a Friend credit section) to access your Bring a Friend code.
3. Send your Bring a Friend code or the link to your Bring a Friend URL to a friend, family member or prospective customer through traditional channels (email, private message, etc.), or by clicking the ‘Copy code’ link on your Bring a Friend page.
4. If a prospective customer - someone who has never previously had Visible service - uses your Bring a Friend code they will receive $20 off their first month of service, which will be applied at the time they activate new service with Visible, then you will automatically have a Bring a Friend credit applied to your account.
5. If you have a Bring a Friend credit banked in your account, your next month’s all-in cost will be automatically reduced by $20.
6. You can have 12 Bring a Friend credits banked at any time. If you refer more than 12 new members while you have 12 credits banked, you will still only receive the maximum of 12 credits.
1. For you to receive a Bring a Friend credit, a new member you refer must (1) activate Visible service and (2) use your Bring a Friend code at the time of activation. In other words, you will not receive a Bring a Friend credit if the potential new member fails to complete their activation or fails to use your Bring a Friend code if they activate.
2. Bring a Friend credits are not transferrable, have no cash value and may not be redeemed for cash. Bring a Friend credits will be applied against service charges, and will not be used to offset any other charges. For example, Bring a Friend credits will not be applied to cover taxes and fees (though the taxes and fees will still be included in the all-in cost you pay when you use a credit), device charges, insurance costs or any other non-service cost.
3. Bring a Friend credits will only apply if you remain a member in good-standing and continue to maintain Visible service. If you terminate, suspend, or let your account lapse, any banked Bring a Friend credits may be voided as well and may no longer be applicable for future service. If your account terminates and you reactivate in the future, while we’ll be very happy to have you back, any previously voided Bring a Friend credits may not be restored. Visible retains sole discretion in determining whether credits are voided.
4. The Bring a Friend program is subject to change, modification, or cancellation at any time in Visible’s sole discretion, with or without notice.
5. If there is any fraud, abuse, or shenanigans (for example, creating fake accounts or using false credentials to create accounts) used in connection with the Bring a Friend program or to game the distribution of Bring a Friend codes or collection of Bring a Friend credits, Visible reserves the right to void credits and exercise any other rights available under the Visible Customer Agreement.
6. Friend Codes can be stacked with certain other Promotions, but only where indicated in the promotional terms and conditions. Visible retains the right to determine which promotions stack or don’t stack with Bring a Friend credits, and promotion stacking is subject to change at Visible’s discretion.
If someone uses your Bring a Friend code to activate a new line of service, there is a notification you would get each time a first through twelfth Bring a Friend was granted. The notification will reveal the first name of who used your Bring a Friend code. No other personal information will be shared when your Bring a Friend code is used, and the first name of the person who uses a code is only shared so referrers can keep track of the status of their referrals.
If someone uses your code to activate, at the moment of their activation, you would receive a notification informing you that someone used your Bring a Friend code, and that a Bring a Friend credit will be applied to reduce your next month’s all-in cost by $20, and any other Bring a Friend credits earned over the next month will be applied to your Visible wallet to use towards future months’ service (up to twelve credits at any time may be banked). You will then be able to see the first names of the people who have used your code in your referrals summary. Please note that you will not be able to see the first name of people who used your code prior to March 2022.
If you use someone else’s Bring a Friend code while activating service, Visible will provide your first name to the person who provided the code. Visible will also notify that person to inform them that their code has been used.

16. Waiver; Severability
The failure of either party to require performance by the other party of any provision of these Terms and Conditions will not affect the full right to require such performance at any time thereafter; nor will the waiver by either party of a breach of any provision of these Terms and Conditions be taken or held to be a waiver of the provision itself. If any provision of these Terms and Conditions is unenforceable or invalid under any applicable law so held by applicable court decision, such unenforceability or invalidity will not render these Terms and Conditions unenforceable or invalid as a whole and in such event, such provisions will be changed and interpreted so as to best accomplish the objectives of such unenforceable or invalid provision within the limits of applicable law or applicable court decisions.
