These days referral programs are the best way to earn subscribers to a service. It usually involves a person or a group of persons. In the case of YouTube, a person is given an additional discount over the regular price for a YouTube Premium subscription. With this, the referring person gets some perk as a token of appreciation. Last year, YouTube introduced a referral program for YouTube TV in February 2021. Now, the biggest online video platform service has also started the YouTube Premium subscription referral program.
What is the YouTube Premium referral program?
Under this program, the largest video streaming service offers both referrers and new subscribers a discount. Later following the footsteps, YouTube also launched the same referral program for the existing subscribers. In this program, the existing subscribers can also get an additional month of free service for every new user they get onboard.
Meanwhile, the existing Premium subscribers need to share a referral link with the new users. Furthermore, the new user must use this link to sign up for the service. With this referral link, the new users will also get access to the YouTube Premium for three months at a highly discounted price. Also Read – Redmi K40 price in Amazon India
YouTube Premium price
One of the prime questions that arise is, how much is YouTube Premium subscription for? As per official reports, the YouTube Premium membership price starts at USD 11.99/month in the US. But with the referral link, the referred users will only have to pay USD 0.99 for three months. Similarly, in India, the YouTube Premium signup with the referral link will cost only Rs 10 for three months. Meanwhile, the regular price of a YouTube Premium subscription in India is Rs 129 per month. Remember, the new discounted price will only apply to first-time subscribers. Meanwhile, this offer is not available to the former Premium subscribers.
Now, how to add someone to YouTube Premium? If a person signs up for the Premium membership and pays with the referral link, they will also get an additional YouTube Premium subscription for up to 12 months. FYI, the YouTube Premium referral program runs till May 31, 2023. Therefore, we have plenty of time to get as many users on board the service as possible. Additionally, there are some regional limitations, and this is because the referral program is still inactive in most European countries.
