  • From the pop-up give a new email ID and click on “Claim Reward”
  • Now, new customers/ friends will earn a Reward ($10 off instantly) which they can redeem in their first/ upcoming orders they are going to place.
Please note that Friend/ new customer will earn Referral Reward only if he is a new customer/ no orders placed from the given email ID.
