Question about promo codes

Not sure if this is the right place to ask. I searched the KBase and the wiki, but couldn’t find an answer to my question.

When I create a promotional code, do people have to use my referral link to claim it? What happens if they use someone else’s referral link, but then use my promo code?

a quote from Panel > rewards:

“Now you can make your own DreamHost promo codes that new customers can use to get a one-time discount while signing up! Anybody who uses YOUR promo code when signing up automatically gets their referrer set as you (above all else).”

As long as they type in your promo code then it doesn’t matter how they came to the site, you get credit.


Cool. Thanks. I guess I never noticed (or maybe didn’t “get”) the “above all else” part.
