First! Event 2023: Refer-A-Friend Bonus Details

From Monday, January 23 to Friday, January 27, Sideshow is celebrating its First! 2023 Event. You can get all the details on our Event Overview blog. Essentially, First! celebrates what it means to be a geek and a collector. Plus, it highlights the connections we’ve made along the way. After all, this is a community celebration — and we want you to get involved in a really rewarding way.

During First!, we’re upping the ante on our Refer-A-Friend program. Referring friends for purchases during this period can earn you the chance to receive extra bonuses on top of the perks you already get for successful referrals. Interested? Read on below.


Bonus for Buddies

Now making its Sideshow debut: the Refer-A-Friend Bonus for Buddies! It’s always a good time to start collecting, especially if you’re getting into it (or keeping the love going) this year. And if you collect with a bunch of friends, family, colleagues, et cetera — well, this is going to work out just great.

Basically, this is a race to refer the most people. There are four tiers. Think of them like gold, silver, bronze, and pewter. (So if you were wondering whether this is a competition, the answer is a big, friendly geeky yes!)

Tiers

Tier 1: Our top 3 referrers will be able to choose 1 product for themselves from a pool of In-Stock Hot Toys products.

Tier 2: The next 5 highest referrers will be able to choose 1 product for themselves from a pool of items with an SRP of $100 or less.

Tier 3: 10 referrers will receive $25 in Sideshow Rewards 45 days after all eligible In-Stock order(s) they referred have shipped. Sideshow Rewards will only be available for use for a limited time.

Tier 4: Finally, 15 referrers will receive $15 in Sideshow Rewards 45 days after all eligible In-Stock order(s) they referred have shipped. Sideshow Rewards will only be available for use for a limited time.

Restrictions

Now for the generic bit. But like, please read this. It’s important — we promise.

  • Eligible referred orders attributed to a referrer must be In-Stock orders.
  • All incentive tiers will be fulfilled to eligible referrers 45 days after the eligible referred In-Stock orders attributed to them as a referrer have shipped to their referral.
  • Eligible top referrers in the First! Refer-A-Friend promotion will be contacted directly by a Sideshow representative for final fulfillment of the incentive they have earned.

Refer-A-Friend

Even if you’re familiar with our Refer-A-Friend program, let’s refresh some info. It’s designed to reward Sideshow collectors for referring new and existing collectors who order direct from Sideshow.

How do I refer a friend?

There’s two ways to do this. One: You can share your custom referral link, which is found in the Refer a Friend area of your online account.

Two: Use the Share/Refer buttons available throughout our site. You’ll notice these the most on product pages. You must have an active Sideshow online account (or set one up during the sharing process) to earn rewards.

Rules and Eligibility

We know, we know. This is the boring part. Again. But let’s get into the nitty-gritty just in case.

  • You must be at least 18 years old.
  • You can refer as many friends as you would like, one time each. We suggest that you go make lots of friends.
  • The person you refer must have a Sideshow online account and complete an order within the 2 days of your referral.
  • Completed referrals equal 2% of the product price, after any applied discounts. The product price does not include sales tax or ship costs.
  • Rewards are only earned on referrals from In-Stock items.

You can browse the full list of terms and conditions via our Help Center.


Sideshow Rewards

Finally, here’s a little info about Sideshow Rewards — you know, those things you earn by doing this. Rewards are online Sideshow shopping credit which can be earned in a variety of ways. This Refer-A-Friend-a-thon is just the most exciting way to do it!
