We appreciate when our users share our app – after all, friends help friends become savvier drivers! We’ve got a new way to say thank you to those of you who do. During the month of September, for every 2 friends you refer who sign up for Metromile, we will gift you 1,000lbs of Carbon Credits.
What is a Carbon Credit exactly? It’s a way to help the environment by funding projects that more directly reduce emissions. For example, one project could involve planting more trees while another could focus on capturing harmful greenhouse gases from getting into the atmosphere. A credit of 1,000lbs is like preventing the emission from 50 gallons of gas!
We all wish we could do more to help the environment, and every effort, no matter how big or small, counts. Biking and using public transportation are great ways that are more readily available to us. Driving is not going away anytime soon, and cars do enable wonderful conveniences. Carbon credits are just one way to help mitigate carbon footprints.
Can’t wait to start sharing and help do some good for our environment? Just log into your online dashboard at metromile.com. You’ll see a green button in the top right area that says “Carbon Credits Referral!”. After clicking, you’ll see 3 options for sharing: email, Facebook, or Twitter.
Your friends must use the links provided in any of the 3 methods, otherwise, we will not be able to connect the referral back to you in order to send you the Carbon Credits. The new user does NOT need to sign up for pay-per-mile insurance; he or she just needs to create a user-account through metromile.com.
We’ll check every week for your referrals and award on a weekly basis. The email associated with your Metromile account is what we’ll use to send your gift. Maximum number of gifts that can be earned is 4 (i.e. 8 referrals) per person. First 5 people to get 8 referrals within the month of September will receive a Metromile t-shirt and sunglasses!
