Reston, VA – December 15, 2010 – Wirefly (www.wirefly.com), the Internet’s leading authorized retailer of cell phones and cell phone plans, today announced the launch of its Refer A Friend program that offers cash rewards for introducing friends to Wirefly. Customers can earn $25 every time they refer a friend who purchases a cell phone with a service plan on Wirefly.com. The friend will also receive $25 on his or her order.

“Consumers shop on Wirefly because we offer the widest selection of the latest cell phones – more than retail stores- from every major U.S. carrier, with straightforward pricing without rebates, and the added convenience of researching, comparing, and ordering cell phones online,” said Andy Zeinfeld, chief executive officer of Simplexity, parent company of Wirefly.com. “We have become the #1 retailer of cell phones almost entirely through word-of-mouth from people who tell their friends how much they saved. With the Refer A Friend program, we now offer another benefit to our loyal customers while also rewarding their friends for shopping with us. It’s a win-win for everyone!”

How it works:

Shoppers can sign up for the program either through the ‘Friends’ tab of Wirefly’s Facebook page, (www.facebook.com/wirefly) or using the Refer-A-Friend link that is provided on the confirmation page after they make a wireless purchase on Wirefly.com. Once they have registered, they will be able to send referrals to everyone in their personal network via email, Facebook, and Twitter. Every time a referral purchases and activates a phone with a two-year service contract online from Wirefly through the Refer A Friend link, they will both get $25! The $25 reward will be sent to both individuals electronically after 90 days. There is no limit to the number of friends someone can refer, or the amount of $25 rewards one can collect. It’s the only way to shop!

Wirefly has become America’s trusted source for cell phones because it makes shopping for cell phones fast, easy and affordable. In addition, Wirefly offers an array of services aimed at improving the mobile phone buying experience, including:

    I have refer 4 person last dec 2010 and it is almost april morethan 90 days but I haven’t receive my check. Is this some kind of scam?!

    • Roselle, I asked people here about your concerns and here’s what I got:

      “The referral program pays on customers who reach our site through a valid referral link, purchase a phone with 2yr service contract, and maintain their service for a minimum of 90 days.

      To Check Referral Status:
      The Refer A Friend member should log into their account.
      Their account page shows 4 actions. They can track their referrals to see who ordered from their referral link and who made a purchase.”

      In other words, the people you referred to Wirefly had to click on a specific “referral” link for you to get the referral. Then they had to successfully buy a phone and an account, and hold that account for 90 days. At the time you made the referral, you should have created a referral account. If you check that account, it will show the status of the people you referred.

      I hope that helps! Let me know if you need more information.

    Hello Megan,

    I just got my phone on Christmas eve. I am very happy with it…although I have a lot to learn. I am writing because I just read about your referral program and the ONLY reason I bought from Wirefly is because a friend of mine who I trust and is a great source of information looked up EVERYTHING concerning my phone and the costs, plans etc etc etc… and he is the one who sent me to Wirefly…he even gave me the number to call. He has been using Wirefly for YEARS. Since you have a referral program I believe that my friend Jordan Gentes should get the credit he deserves and get the $25 credit.
    His phone number is 480-210-1611 and he is in Nashville TN. His email is jordangentes@yahoo.com And if he gets the credit as he deserves I will also refer and I know he will refer more also. He is doing this out of the goodness of his heart he is definately a worth candidate. Please let me know what happens with this. It will tell me alot. Thank you very much.
