Referral Program Terms and ConditionsUpdated a year ago

Last updated: 8 February 2022


These are the Terms and Conditions applicable to the Dollar Shave Club Referral Program (the “Program”). Under the Program, Dollar Shave Club offers its Members the opportunity to provide their friends, family, or other individuals (“Prospective Members”) with a unique referral ID link (“Personal Link”) that a Prospective Member can use to sign up for Dollar Shave Club services (“Membership”). For each Qualified Referral (defined below) generated through the Member’s Personal Link, the Member may receive a Dollar Shave Club credit (“Credit”) as specified on DSC’s Referral Program page. We reserve the right to terminate this Program at any time for any reason.

Members and Prospective Members that wish to take part in the Program are bound by these Terms. If you do not agree and abide by these Terms in their entirety you are not authorized to participate in the Program. Members and Prospective Members may not participate in the Program where doing so would be prohibited by any applicable law or regulations. We reserve the right to modify or amend at any time these Terms and the methods through which any Credits may be earned. We reserve the right to disqualify any Member or Prospective Member at any time from participation in the Program.


2.1    Program Participation. Generally. To participate, a Member shall provide the Prospective Member with the Member’s Personal Link. The Prospective Member must click on the Personal Link and complete the sign up in the same session. If the Prospective Member does not complete the sign up in the same session, the Member will be not be credited for that referral and will not be eligible for the Credit, even if the Prospective Member subsequently signs up for a Membership. For purposes of clarification, completion of sign-up in the same session means clicking the Personal Link provided by Member and completing DSC service sign-up within a reasonable period of time and without the Prospective Member closing their Internet browser or pressing the back button.

2.2    Eligible Member. To be eligible for the Program and to receive Credits, a Member must:

(a) Be a legal resident of Canada;

(b) Be at least the age of majority in the jurisdiction where the Member resides;

(c) Have provided the Prospective Member with their correct unique Personal Link; and

(d) Have a Membership account in good standing with DSC.

(d) Not be an employee of DSC, its service providers or any of its or their subsidiaries, affiliates or promotional agencies, or immediate family or a household member of any such employee.

2.3    Personalized Referral Links. DSC may offer Members the opportunity to create their own personalized referral name (“Personalized Referral Link”). Where available and subject to the following, these Personalized Referral Links may be of any length and include any combination of words and/or numbers of the Member’s choosing. Personalized Referral Links shall be on a first come, first served basis. Where available, you can check Your Personalized Referral Link by going to DSC is in no way responsible for confirming or ensuring that the Personalized Referral Link is accurate or correctly formatted or spelled. Under no circumstances may a Member transfer or sell a Personalized Referral Link to another Member. Notwithstanding the foregoing, DSC reserves the right to revoke, ban, or amend any Personalized Referral Link at any time and for any reason. Any or all Credits earned through a revoked, banned, or amended Personalized Referral Link may be removed from Member’s account by DSC. For purposes of clarification, but in no way limiting DSC’s rights to revoke, ban, or amend any Personalized Referral Link, the following Personalized Referral Links are explicitly banned and may be grounds for suspension of Membership and removal of any Credits earned:

(a) Personalized Referral Links that imply a discount or savings on Membership (e.g. 5DollarsOff, 5buxOff, FreeBlades, 5Off, etc.);

(b) Personalized Referral Links that DSC deems to be obscene, racist, sexist, or offensive in its sole discretion;

(c) Personalized Referral Links that use a trademark, copyright, or the name of another individual.

(d) Personalized Referral Links that are promoted, advertised, or publicized on any DSC owned or operated websites, third party websites, social networks, and any other similarly situated Internet site, property, location, or asset where DSC is an Administrator or Trustee.

3.    Making a Referral

3.1    Members can refer Prospective Members by giving their Personal Referral Links to the Prospective Member.

3.2    By using a Personal Link, a Prospective Member acknowledges that some of his/her personal information may be sent to the Member who provided the Personal Link as confirmation of the Prospective Member’s successful referral and sign-up with DSC. Accordingly, DSC strongly advises that Prospective Members only use a Personal Link they receive from someone whom they personally know and trust.

4.    Qualified Referrals. A Qualified Referral means that all the following conditions are met:

(a) The Prospective Member completed the registration process for a Membership and purchases a subscription using the Member’s Personal Link;

5.    Earning Credits. Member shall receive Credits for each verified Qualified Referral generated through the Member’s Personal Link. The actual Credit will be determined by DSC in its sole discretion as specified on the Account page. Such credit may only be applied in the amount specified by DSC towards the Member’s purchase of future services from DSC. A Member may attain an unlimited number of Qualified Referrals, but any Qualified Referral shall be subject to review at any time by DSC and it is in the sole discretion of DSC as to the legitimacy and validity of such Qualified Referral.

6.    Verified Qualified Referrals. All Credits are subject to verification. DSC may delay a Credit for the purposes of investigation. DSC may also refuse to verify and process any transaction DSC deems, in its sole discretion, to be fraudulent, suspicious, or in violation of these Terms and Conditions, or DSC believes will impose potential liability on DSC beyond what is reasonable for this Referral Program, its subsidiaries, affiliates or any of their respective officers, directors, employees, representatives and agents. DSC may cancel, amend or revoke the Credit at any time due to business considerations of circumstances beyond DSC’s control. DSC is not responsible for errors, omissions, malfunctions, interruptions, deletions, delays or failures of operations. All of DSC’s decisions are final and binding, including decisions as to whether a Qualified Referral or Credit is verified.

7.    Value of Credit. Credits have absolutely no monetary value and may not, under any circumstances, be redeemed for cash or any cash equivalent including but not limited to gift cards, certificates, or refunds. DSC may cancel, amend or revoke the Credit at any time for any reason.

8.    Transfer of Credits. Credits are personal to the Member and are not transferable and may not be auctioned, traded, bartered or sold, whether by operation of law or otherwise. Upon termination of the Program or any portion thereof for any reason, or upon cancellation of a Member’s account for any reason, any unredeemed Credits (including without limitation any unapplied credits) accumulated by the Member are forfeited.
