Did you know that there is a Peloton referral program? That is, when you refer friends and family when buying a Peloton bike or Tread, you both benefit. They get money off accessories and you get free clothing. 

But I’m getting ahead of myself. You may have lots of questions about the Peloton referral program that I want to answer. This includes:

  • Where do I find my Peloton referral code?
  • How many times can I share my Peloton referral code?
  • What is the benefit of sharing a Peloton referral?
  • How would someone use a Peloton referral to save money?
  • What is the process for sharing a Peloton referral code?

How the Peloton referral program works

Here’s how that Peloton referral program works. It’s pretty simple.

One, you share your unique Peloton referral code with someone you know who may be buying a bike or Tread. This referral code is only good with the purchase of an original Bike, Bike Plus or Tread. It does not work with an app-only membership.

Two, the recipients enter that code when they make that purchase. There will be a spot on the checkout form for a coupon code or referral code. If it says coupon, this is where they put your referral code.

 

Savings on Peloton accessories packages

Three, your referral code saves them $100 on Peloton accessories bought at the same time as their bike or Tread. So, it’s savings for the add-on packages to a bike or Tread purchase–not the equipment itself. 

Keep in mind that both the Bike and Tread have different accessories packages. Again, this $100 savings is on these accessories packages, which are add ons. 

Peloton has since renamed these packages since we bought our bike in 2016. Originally, we got the “works” which cost $249 additional and came with the following:

  • three-pound Peloton weights; these Peloton dumbbells attach to the back of the bike, underneath the seat
  • Peloton heart rate monitor
  • one pair of Peloton cycling shoes
  • Peloton mat for under the bike
  • pair of Peloton headphones

Finally, in return for sharing your code, you get a $100 credit to use at the Peloton boutique. I’ve gotten a lot of free clothing or discounts on Peloton clothing from the Peloton boutique this way.

Speaking of discounts, here are two ways for you to get a Peloton membership discount.

How many times can I share my code

The primary owner of the Peloton account can share their unique code up to 12 six times each calendar year. At the beginning of the next year, your code “resets” and you can share it again. Then, you can earn more free clothing from the Peloton boutique.

I’ve blacked out my actual referral code because sharing it on my blog goes against Peloton’s terms of service.

Where do I find my Peloton referral code

You’ll find your Peloton referral code under your profile on the Peloton website. Not the app. Nor is it on the bike or the Tread. It’s on the website only.

Look under your profile for the phrase “Refer Friends.” There you’ll find your unique code to share for others to save and for you to earn free Peloton clothing and swag from the boutique.  Speaking of Peloton clothing, here is my article about Peloton apparel.

How do I share my Peloton referral code with someone

It’s easy. Just cut and paste the referral code from your profile. Then, email or text to someone who is interested in buying a Peloton bike or Tread.

Again, you’re not supposed to share this on social media as it goes against Peloton’s rules. However, I’ve seen plenty of people in the Peloton Buy Sell Trade Facebook group sharing their code.

Also, people will include it in the Instagram profile. Finally, just because I’ve seen this and people have done this doesn’t make it right.

How to redeem my clothing credits from the referral code

So, let’s say someone has used your referral code to buy a bike or Tread. Now you’ve got a $100 credit to spend at the Peloton boutique. This is how you redeem it.

One, go shopping. Two, spend at least $100 so that you get the full value of your Peloton referral credit. Three, checkout.

Unfortunately, if you spend less than $100 you can’t use the remaining credit to pay for shipping. You’ll always have to pay for that out of pocket.

What if I have multiple referral code credits from Peloton

If you’re lucky enough to have had multiple people use your code to buy a bike or Tread, keep the following in mind when redeeming your credits. You cannot stack them.

That is, you can apply one $100 credit to a single shopping trip. If you have more than one $100 credit to spend, you’ll need to make multiple shopping trips online.

Speaking of shopping trips, at one point you could use your referral code credit of $100 to shop at a physical Peloton store. I’m not sure if that’s still possible. I’ll check on that and get back to you.

Final thoughts on the Peloton referral program

Clearly, I’ve benefited from the Peloton referral program, in that I’ve earned free clothing. My friends and family have benefitted, too, in the form of savings on accessories packages for the Peloton bikes or Treads they buy.

That being said, Peloton has gotten stingier over the years with how the referral program works. One, it used to be that anyone on your account could share a referral code. Now it’s only the primary account owner. Two, it used to be that you could share your referral code up to 12 times a year. Now it’s only six times.

I’m sure Peloton has a legit business reason for cutting back on the benefits of the referral program. However, as  long-time Peloton owner, I wasn’t too happy with the changes because it was a small benefit that came with a very expensive piece of exercise equipment. But, I’ll get over it.
