Frequently Asked Questions
We want to give you a way to share some savings with friends and at the same time reward you for spreading the word about our family of sites. Whenever an eligible friend places a first order on one of our sites and enters your referral code or your email address at checkout, they'll get a discount off their purchase in an amount determined by the Company in its sole discretion (a maximum discount may be applicable).
Better yet, you get to choose between receiving a credit to your account or a donation to a select charity each time your friends shop a new site. Quidsi may, from time to time, run promotions that change the amount of the referral credit and donation you can earn.
Note: The account credit option is not available for residents of Arkansas, Colorado, Maine, Missouri, Rhode Island and Vermont or international destinations. In those areas, a donation will be made for eligible orders.
You can share your Refer-a-Friend code with friends by posting on social media sites like Facebook or Twitter. Or, if you'd like, we can send emails on your behalf introducing your friends to our sites and the program. There are also personalized web banners, featuring your referral code available to share. To find these tools, go to My Account, then Referral Manager.
If you opt to have the credits generated from your referrals go to your account as a credit, you will see the credit added to your account balance shortly after the referral's purchase. Credits expire three months from date of issuance. Please note that the account credit option is not available for residents of Arkansas, Colorado, Maine, Missouri, Rhode Island and Vermont or international destinations.
If you opt to have the donation generated from your referrals go to charity, then we'll make a donation to one of the charities below. Each of our sites has carefully selected a charity that will receive any donations generated from referral orders on that site. If you'd like to specify which charity receives your referral donations (or have the money split evenly among the charities), go to My Account, then Referral Manager and make your selection in the drop-down menu.

By building no-kill programs and partnerships, helping animals find homes, and addressing problems at the very root of animal homelessness, Best Friends has become a leader in the animal welfare movement. But its heart and headquarters is still in the place where it all began, at the nation's largest no-kill sanctuary for homeless pets in Kanab, Utah.
Here, you'll find around 1,700 homeless animals on any given day, where they get state-of-the-art medical, behavioral and emotional care in a spacious, sociable setting unlike anywhere else on earth. The vast majority of them will then move on to loving, adoptive homes, and they're welcome at the Sanctuary for as long as it takes.
In addition, Best Friends works to save the lives of homeless animals all across the country by supporting spay/neuter programs, rescuing dogs from puppy mills, running public education campaigns about the importance of animal adoption, and much more.
