It pays to be a great mate!

You can earn up to $10 for every mate you invite to Up. Once you’ve qualified (see how below) you can send invites to your friends' mobiles. After they successfully sign up, you’ll each get $5. Once they make 5 purchases in their first 30 days, you'll both receive another $5.
