Referral, promo, or sponsor codes can be used used to discount the very first month of your Shadow subscription and help spread the love for Shadow. Every Shadow user receives their own referral code with their Shadow account. When you refer a friend to Shadow with your referral code, your friend gets an immediate discount on their first month. This is called a referral. You (the referee) will receive an ongoing credit starting on your next Shadow bill or once your referral's Shadow has been activated.

Frequently Asked Questions
💡 Who is who?
- Referral: a new Shadow subscriber who has used a referral code from a current Shadow user
- Referee: an active Shadow user who has a referral code that has been used by a referral
Where can I find my referral code?
Log in to your account page and click on the “Referrals” tab on the left-hand side. Here, you’ll find a unique alphanumeric code that you can copy and share with your friends, family, peers, and rivals.
How much are referral codes worth?
When you apply a referral code at checkout, you'll receive a $5 discount for your first full month of Shadow. Once your Shadow has been activated, your referee will receive a $1 credit for every month you continue your Shadow subscription.
📝 Note: Although referrals will receive an immediate discount, referees may not see a discount until approximately 20 days after the referral's Shadow has been activated.

I have/had a subscription to Shadow. Can I use a code?
Referral, promo, or sponsor codes are only available to new users who have not purchased a Shadow subscription before. Existing customers cannot use a code.
Can I see how many people have used my code?
Yes! To see how many people you have referred to Shadow:
- Log in to your account page.
- Click the "Referral" tab on the left-hand side.
- View the Tracker.
📝 Note: If a referral cancels their subscription within 20 days of activation, it will not be counted as a "referral" in the tracker. The referral benefit will also not be applied.
How many referrals am I allowed to give?
As many as you want; it's unlimited! You could actually refer enough people to get Shadow free for life.
📝 Note: Although referrals are unlimited, the referral value is capped to your monthly subscription price and does not roll over.
My code has been redeemed. When will I receive my credit?
Once your referral code has been redeemed, a credit will be applied to your subscription once your friend has been activated for a minimum of 20 days. If your subscription is inactive, your credit will be forfeited, and the referral tracker will be reset to 0.
