Companies Who Use Referral Link Options in Their Competitions

Ask a Question

Hello all,

What is everyone's views on companies who use referral link options in their competitions? The way it works is that you are given a unique referral link which is used to share with others, and the more people you get entering through your individual link, the more entries into that competition you will receive. This gets used in many Gleam comps as well as some website comps, and I actually think this is really unfair as it's giving those who have more friends/family members an advantage over others. For example, one person may only have just the one entry, whereas another person could have 100 entries and in the same competition.

I personally have never agreed with this method and I believe that everyone should all have an equal chance at winning.

I dislike them purely because lots of them presuppose you have social media, which I don't. I cannot enter gleam comps and that is why I sometimes get a bit cross when people post them under website instead of gleam as I filter to website only.

I do sometimes refer comps by email to friends and family but one day got a funny email from my son asking if he could unsubscribe please!
