Referral Program Terms

Registered thredUP users (“you”) may earn credit for use at by referring new customers to thredUP through our referral program (“Referral Program”). If you are a registered thredUP user and choose to participate in the Referral Program, you must agree to these terms, which become a part of the thredUP Terms of Use (the “TOS”), available at Capitalized terms that are not defined here will have the same meaning given to them in the TOS.

How to Participate in the Referral Program

You will be assigned a personal referral link for referring customers by visiting our Referral Program Share page, available at or on various Referral Program Sharing elements across the site. To participate, you may refer friends who have not previously signed up to thredUP by sending them your personal referral link. Each new customer you refer who clicks on your personal referral link will receive a promo code redeemable at prior to the promo code’s expiration date.

Redeeming Credits

You will receive the amount specified on our referral page at the time of the referral credited to your thredUP account after a referred customer has completed their first Qualifying Purchase (defined below) using your Referral Program promo code received by clicking on your personal referral link and following the instructions from the link. The referral credit expires in 30 days from date credited to your account, and the maximum total of credits you may receive under the Referral Program in any calendar year is $580.00 (“Credit Limit”). Once the Credit Limit has been reached, you will no longer receive any credit for referrals in that calendar year.

Qualifying for the Referral Program

To qualify for a Referral Program promo code, the referred customer must (i) be a new thredUP customer, (ii) use a referral link to obtain a Referral Program promo code and (iii) make a purchase using the Referral Program promo code on in accordance with the TOS and these Referral Program Terms & Conditions (a “Qualifying Purchase”).

Sharing Referral Links

Referrals should only be used for personal and non-commercial purposes, and only shared with personal connections that will appreciate receiving these invitations. Referring customers may not collect referrals by:

  • Self-referring by using multiple or false names, identities, accounts or email addresses;
  • Referring anyone who is an existing thredUP customer, including an existing customer with an account under an alternate email address;
  • Using spam or sending unsolicited emails to persons they don’t personally know to collect referrals, or otherwise violating any applicable law, rule, regulation or third party terms of use;
  • Posting on message boards, internet advertisements, public forums, coupon sites or other online venues (such as coupon websites, reddit, or Wikipedia);
  • Permitting another individual to use the referring customer’s account;
  • Referring fake people to thredUP, impersonating another person, or otherwise providing thredUP with false or misleading information;
  • Using the personal referral link in any manner that is disparaging or that otherwise portrays thredUP in a negative light; or
  • Any other restriction we impose on participants in our referral program in our discretion upon prior notice.

If thredUP determines in its sole discretion that there has been a violation of these terms, thredUP reserves the right to cancel or rescind a referring customer’s referral credit, cancel the referred customer’s discounted order, and/or determine that one or both parties are ineligible to participate in this or future offers. Referring customers may also be liable for civil and/or criminal penalties under applicable law. thredUP reserves the right to void, verify or adjust credits at any time prior to or following posting and redemption.

Your Responsibilities

By acquiring referral credits, you agree and acknowledge that we are granting you a limited, revocable license to a digital item, and that the referral credit is not your personal property. Except as explicitly provided herein, your personal referral link and referral credits are non-transferable. You are responsible for keeping track of the referral credits in your account and notifying us of any discrepancy. You may be required to pay taxes, and we may be required to withhold taxes, on the value of redeemed referral credits if the value exceeds certain thresholds. Referral credit cannot be applied to previous purchases, and is not redeemable for cash.


This Referral Program is subject to restriction, modification, suspension or termination at any time upon notice to you in thredUP’s sole discretion. thredUP may suspend or terminate the Referral Program or your ability to participate in the Referral Program at any time for any reason. If any provision in these terms are held to be invalid, void, or unenforceable, such provision (or the part of it that is making it invalid, void or unenforceable) will be struck and not affect the validity of and enforceability of the remaining provisions. We may provide such notice in any way compliant with applicable law including via email to the last email address you provided to us, by amending these terms, or posting a change to our referral program FAQ page. All referral credits are voided immediately upon termination of our referral program. A referred friend may only use one referral link. If a referred friend receives referral links from multiple thredUP users, only the corresponding thredUP user of the referral link and corresponding promo code used by the referred friend will receive credit. We reserve the right to suspend accounts or remove credits if we notice any activity that we believe is abusive or fraudulent. We reserve the right to review and investigate all referral activities and to suspend accounts or modify referrals as deemed fair and appropriate. We can update these terms at any time without prior notice. If we modify these terms, we will post the modification on the website, applications, or services, which are effective upon posting. Continued participation in the Referral Program after any modification shall constitute consent to such modification.
