Basketball is fun to play alone, but to truly unlock the potential of what’s possible on the court, you need a little help. Magic isn’t Magic without four other players running the baseline and posting up in the paint, ready to benefit from his vision and passing abilities. CP3 doesn’t become the Point God without 15+ years of dynamic scorers and dunkers by his side. 

Teamwork is essential to the game we all love, and while ripping packs and cruising the Marketplace can always be fun, just like shooting around alone in your driveway, we know that NBA Top Shot is better with friends, too. 

We’ve created our new Refer A Friend program with the spirit of teamwork, community and shared experiences in mind.

It’s live now and everyone is eligible to participate. When you do, both you and your friends will get rewarded. 

Here’s how the NBA Top Shot Refer A Friend Program works:  

Visit your profile on NBA Top Shot and you’ll find a personalized referral link that you can easily share via text, email and social.

When someone creates their first NBA Top Shot account using that link — whether that’s your friend, family, coworker, or teammate — and buys their first officially licensed NBA or WNBA NFT, whether it’s a Moment in the marketplace, a $9 starter pack or the latest pack drop, you’ll both receive a $15 non-withdrawable credit to spend on NBA Top Shot in your accounts within 24 hours* of their purchase. 

*for a limited time in June, the amount of time it takes for you and your friend to receive the $15 NBA Top Shot credit can take up to 7 days.

For everyone who signs up using your personalized referral link and makes their first purchase, in addition to the $15 non-withdrawable NBA Top Shot credit for both of you, you’ll earn an Assist. Throughout the NBA Playoffs and beyond, we’ll be keeping track of anyone and everyone who has earned an Assist, and their friend who “scored” because of that Assist, providing surprises along the way to community members who participate.

Whether it’s the rest of the 2022 NBA Playoffs, the best of the 2022 WNBA season, the first of its kind “The Anthology: Magic Johnson” drop or other surprises we have planned for later this year, Refer A Friend is a great way to bring new members into the Top Shot community.

As NBA Top Shot grows and introduces new tools to help our community power that growth, we’re conscious that there are some who may see a program like this as something to exploit. We’ve recently introduced a series of new safety measures to prevent that from happening, and created a new way to help you assist us in identifying behavior that doesn’t seem right.

This blog post was updated on June 7 to reflect a temporary update in the timeframe (from 24 hours to 7 days) to deliver the $15 to each participant in the Refer a Friend program.
