How does the Referral Reward Program work?
When it comes to promoting the benefits of vanpooling, nothing beats word-of-mouth advertising. As a vanpool participant, people respect your opinion. Those casual conversations with friends, co-workers and neighbors can have a tremendous impact on our environment and your finances. That's what VPSI’s Referral Rewards Program is all about. This program provides a way for you to refer vanpools to VPSI and receive credit for doing so. When your referral leads to a new vanpool group, you will receive $100. And when the new vanpool group remains in service for three months, we'll send the new vanpool group $100 to show our appreciation as well!
What’s in it for you?
Personal satisfaction - You can help a friend make their commute to work easier and less costly by sharing your vanpooling experiences with them.
Well deserved recognition –When your referral leads to a new vanpool placement, you will personally receive $100 when the new vanpool group starts. Another $100 will be provided to the new vanpool coordinator after the group has been in service for three months.
Easy involvement - Simply contact our office and give us some basic information regarding the potential new group. We will contact and work with them to ensure a quick start for their vanpool. When the new vanpool group is placed into service, you will receive your $100.
What’s in it for friends, coworkers and neighbors?
The inside scoop - This referral gives your friends and neighbors a way to feel confident in their decision to use our services. So next time you are talking over the back fence to a neighbor, or to a coworker at lunch, and they ask about vanpooling…tell them about VPSI's vanpool program. It’s a reliable, safe, environmentally friendly and inexpensive alternative to driving alone. If they successfully form a new group there’s $100 in it for them!
