Pingit Invites & rewards - inviting friends to Pingit Terms and Conditions

About this offer

Pingit customers can use the invites and rewards feature in the Pingit app (the ‘App’) to invite an eligible person to join Pingit. If the person who receives the invite downloads the App, registers for Pingit and makes a Qualifying Payment as explained below, we’ll give both participants a reward of £5 (‘the Offer’). Please read the terms and conditions below which apply to the Offer. By participating in the Offer, you accept the terms and conditions.

By ‘eligible person’, we mean someone who:

  • Has never registered with Pingit
  • Is aged 16 or over, resides in and has a current account in the UK, the Isle of Man, Jersey or Guernsey
  • Receives an invite from a Pingit customer under the Offer
  • Downloads the App for iOS or Android
  • Successfully registers and makes a Qualifying Payment before the Offer expiry date

Anyone who cancels their Pingit registration and re-registers following an invite is not an eligible person.

By ‘Qualifying Payment’, we mean a payment which is made using the App only. The following types of payments are Qualifying Payments:

  • Payments to another person (including a contact or a business), including sending money abroad
  • Payments made using the Buyit service (for example purchase of a National Lottery ticket)
  • Payments to a Pingit Giving page
  • Topping up (moving money to) a Pingit jar, either:
    • from the Barclays account you linked to Pingit when you registered;
    • from your Pingit Account; or
    • from another Pingit jar
  • Payments made using Pay by Bank app

For the avoidance of doubt the following payments are not Qualifying Payments:

  • Topping up a Pingit Account or Pingit jar either by
    • using a debit card;
    • making a direct transfer (for example making a payment using Online banking) from any of your other bank accounts;
    • setting up a standing order; or
    • receiving money from a third party
  • Payments made using a Pingit device or Pingit card
  • Payments made to a Pingit Giving page using a debit or credit card
  • Requesting a payment into a Pingit Account or a Pingit jar using your payment link (Pingit.me) or receiving such a payment

Pingit customers can invite as many people as they like, but there’s a limit on the total number of rewards they can receive – see the Invites and rewards section of the App for details.

Each joint or business account holder can invite people separately and receive their own reward.

Duration

This Offer opened on 13th December 2019. We can withdraw the offer at any time, without notice.

PARTICIPATING IN THE OFFER – INVITING SOMEONE

A Pingit customer can participate in the Offer by inviting an eligible person to register for Pingit.

You can only invite someone to Pingit by logging into the App and accessing the invites and rewards section. You’ll need to select (or enter) the details of the contacts you want to invite. We’ll then send them a text message on your behalf, asking them to join Pingit – please make sure they’re happy to get the text message from us.

Registering for Pingit

You’ll only get a reward if the person you invite downloads the App, registers successfully and sends a Qualifying Payment. If the person you invite doesn’t have a compatible smartphone or operating system for the App, they can register to receive money via the Pingit website, but they won’t qualify for the Offer.

Rewarding you

You can invite as many people as you like to join Pingit, but there’s a limit to the number of people you can invite under the Offer. We’ll tell you in the App in the invites and rewards section how many invites you have remaining. For example, if you have 10 invites remaining, you invite 10 people and you and they all qualify for the Offer and meet these terms and conditions, you’ll receive £50. These 10 people will also receive £5 each.

We’ll pay the reward of £5 into your linked Barclays account or Pingit Account (as applicable) when we’ve confirmed that both you and the person you invited meet the terms and conditions for the Offer. We’ll normally pay the reward within 2 days of the person you invited successfully registering for Pingit and making a Qualifying Payment.

Paying the reward on joint or business accounts

If you have a joint account and both of you are registered for Pingit, you can invite others to join Pingit separately.

If your business account has multiple account holders who use the Pingit app, we’ll only reward you for up to the maximum number of eligible people each account holder invites.

When we won't pay a reward

We won’t pay a reward to you in the following cases:

  • The person you invite cancels their registration before the reward is paid; or
  • You or the person you invite are not eligible for the reward; or
  • The person you invite doesn’t register and make a Qualifying Payment before the expiry date given in the text message we’ve sent them; or
  • You or the person you invite break/s or do/es not meet our terms and conditions; or
  • You or the person you invite manipulate/s, or try/tries to manipulate, any part of the Offer; or

Charges

There is no charge for participating in the Offer, but participants may incur data charges from their network providers when downloading or using the App.

Tax

Each reward of £5 is subject to VAT (where applicable). If you’re a business customer, it’s your responsibility to account for any output tax that may be due to HMRC and account for the income you receive on any reward you get. Please consult your own advisers if you need tax advice.

If you're an individual UK taxpayer, money you earn as a reward from referring a friend may be subject to income tax, and you might need to declare it to HMRC.

Keeping you updated

We’ll send a text message to a person who has received an invite under the Offer to join Pingit. If both participants successfully qualify for the reward, we’ll send a text message to both participants informing you of this. We won’t contact Pingit customers about anyone they’ve invited for any other reason. By taking part in the Offer, the person who has received an invite acknowledges and consents to this.

Changing or ending the Offer

We can change the terms of the Offer, or end it, at any time, without notice.

We can also change, suspend or end the Offer if we can’t run it for any reason outside our reasonable control, or if we think continuing the Offer as is will cause us to break a law or duty that applies to us or might expose us (or another Barclays company) to action or censure from any government, regulator or law enforcement agency.

Other things you need to know
