OnePlus announces referral programme as the launch date of the OnePlus 5 looms

Ahead of the launch of the OnePlus 5, the company has announced the OnePlus Referral programme.

OnePlus will be announcing its new flagship smartphone for 2017 soon and the company has been doing well to build up the excitement. Ahead of the launch of the OnePlus 5, the company has announced the OnePlus Referral programme.

The company has announced similar referral programmes in the past and under the latest one, people with a referral link will receive $20 off on purchase of any accessory if they buy a OnePlus smartphone from the official store. The person who shared the unique referral link will get 100 referral points.

According to a blog post by OnePlus, "Anyone who's ever bought a OnePlus smartphone past, present, or future, can get a unique referral link. Once you've got a link, just share it with someone interested in buying a OnePlus device and wait for them to hit the order button. If your friend uses your link to purchase a OnePlus smartphone, they'll receive $20 — or an equivalent amount in your local currency — off on an accessory of their choosing. No more than 30 days later, we'll drop 100 referral points in your referral hub."

This means that owners of the OnePlus One, OnePlus 2, OnePlus X, OnePlus 3, and OnePlus 3T can generate their unique link.

The referral points will be added to the user's account in up to 30 days and users can check the referral hub to view and spend referral points on OnePlus accessories and gear. The referral is not yet active in India but should be announced soon.

The OnePlus 5 is expected launch soon and will feature a dual-camera setup and the new Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 SoC.
