To send out referral invitations, you can visit Hulu.com (sign in if prompted) and click on the Refer a Friend link within the Payment Information section of your Account page. You will then be prompted to enroll in the Hulu Referral Program to start referring friends.
There, you can send your personal referral link to friends via email or social media. When a new or eligible returning subscriber uses this link to sign up for Hulu, they’ll receive a 2-week free trial. Once they’ve completed their trial and become paying subscribers, you’ll receive a $10 Visa® eGift Card delivered to your email.
Your friend must subscribe through your personal referral link in order for you to earn Visa® eGift Cards. Additional Terms and Conditions apply. To learn more about Visa® eGift Cards, please visit Visa’s FAQ.
Visit the portal provided by Hulu’s third party administrator for the Referral Program, Ambassador, where you can keep track of your referrals and see how many Visa® eGift Cards you have earned through the Referral Program.
To sign in, go to Ambassador’s portal and use the temporary password that was provided to you in the email you received when you enrolled in the Referral Program.
On the main dashboard of the portal, you will see the following sections:
Earned: The total amount in Visa® eGift Cards you’ll have received if all of your active referrals awaiting approval become paying subscribers.
Awaiting approval: Pending awards for any referrals still in their 2-week free trial. Once they’ve been billed for their first monthly subscription fee, you will receive a $10 Visa® eGift Card.
Awaiting payout: Payouts that have been approved but not processed. You’ll receive your Visa® eGift Card delivered to your email within a few days.
Paid to date: The total amount of Visa® eGift Cards you have received to date.
If you’ve referred a friend, but have not yet received your Visa® eGift Card, it is likely for one of the following reasons:
They did not sign up for Hulu using your personal referral link.
They were not a new or eligible returning Hulu subscriber who has not subscribed or redeemed a free trial in the past 12 months.
They have not yet completed their 2-week free trial and become a paying Hulu subscriber.
You can always keep track of your referrals in the Ambassador portal.
Your friends will need to visit your personal referral link and subscribe to Hulu in order to redeem a 2-week free trial and in order for you to earn Visa® eGift Cards. Once they’ve finished signing up using your link, they will receive a 2-week free trial and will then be charged a monthly subscription fee once the free trial period is over. See below for information about which friends are eligible for a 2-week free trial.
You can refer as many friends as you like, but you can only earn Visa® eGift Cards for friends who become paying Hulu subscribers immediately after completing their 2-week free trial.
The 2-week free trial is only for new Hulu subscribers and for returning Hulu subscribers who have not subscribed or redeemed a free trial in the past 12 months. If your friend has already subscribed or taken part in a free trial of Hulu in the past 12 months, he or she won’t be eligible to receive this 2-week free trial.
