The bonus is added in KidStart Savings for each genuine member who joins after clicking your unique referral link and then collects at least £5 in KidStart Savings from their shopping (excluding referral bonuses that they earn).

We reserve the right to cancel any referral bonuses awarded and block referral links if we believe that the referred members are not genuine individuals.
