Recommend A Friend is a way for Unlimited members to recommend Unlimited to their friends and get rewarded for doing so.
For every friend that becomes an Unlimited member, you could gain an extra month free on your existing membership. Not only that, your friend has the benefit of receiving their 13th month free! The more friends you recommend and sign up for Unlimited, the more free months you'll receive. You can earn up to a maximum of 12 free months a year. Find out more by reading the monthly or annual Recommend A Friend Terms and Conditions.
Any Unlimited member can take part in the Recommend A Friend Offer if they have
a valid email address registered with Cineworld (and their Unlimited card is valid
with all subscription payments up to date). The email address is important as it
enables us to administer the scheme and award you the benefits you've earned. You
can check you have the correct email address registered with us by calling the Unlimited
All you have to do is apply online for your unique code, send it on to your friends
and ask them to apply for their own Unlimited membership using the code when prompted.
To obtain your code, first
go to the Recommend a Friend page, enter your Unlimited membership number
and your email address. We will then email you the code which you can pass on to
your friends. Your friends will be prompted to enter your unique code when
they sign up for their own Unlimited membership. The code used by your friends
will tell us they are applying as a friend of yours. We will then be able to correctly
assign your reward once they have become an Unlimited member, paid their subscription
fees and been an active member with us for 90 days.
Your code may be used as many times as you like, although the number of free months
you can earn from the code is limited to a maximum of 12 each year (even if the
code has been used in connection with more than 12 successful recommendations during

From time to time, we may send you posters or other mailings about Recommend a Friend
which you may wish to use to recommend Unlimited to your friends.
You can apply for your Recommend a Friend code and start recommending friends as
soon as you become an Unlimited member.
It’s really quite simple. One successful recommendation will earn you one
additional month’s worth of Unlimited membership. You can benefit from up
to a maximum of 12 free months in a year.
A successful recommendation means the friend ("Friend") that you have recommended
(a) is eligible to join the Unlimited Scheme in accordance with the Unlimited Card
Terms and , (b) is subscribing to the Unlimited scheme for the first time, (c) successfully
completes the online application process using the relevant Offer code, and (d)
has successfully paid for and completed their first 90 days’ subscription.
Please see our
annual & Conditions for the Recommend a Fried Offer for more details.
If your friend signs up for Unlimited, inputs your unique code during the online
application process and completes their first 12 months’ subscription, they
will receive their 13th month of Unlimited membership free. In addition to that,
once they become an Unlimited member, your friend can make their own recommendations
earning more months free for themselves and their friends!
You may share your Recommend A Friend code with as many friends, family members
and colleagues as you like., although the number of free months you can earn from
that code is limited to a maximum of 12 each year (even if the code has been used
in connection with more than 12 successful recommendations during that period).
Monthly pay Premium Unlimited members – if you have been
an Unlimited member for more than a year and you pay your subscription monthly,
your free month will be credited to your account within 6 weeks of your friend paying
for and completing their first 90 days’ membership. We’ll give you your
free month by waiving your direct debit payment for the relevant month. It takes
10 days for us to apply the stop on your monthly Direct Debit, so you’ll either
receive your freebie the month after it has been credited to your account or the
month after that once the temporary payment stop has been applied. Normal payment
will be resumed in the following month (unless you have qualified for more than
one free month, in which case normal payment will be resumed after the relevant
number of free months have been applied).
Monthly pay standard (red card) Unlimited members – if you
are in your first 12 months of membership and you pay your subscription monthly
your free month(s) will be applied at the end of your initial 12 month membership.
We’ll usually give you your free month by waiving your direct debit payment
for your 13th month. It takes 10 days for us to apply the stop on your
monthly Direct Debit, so you’ll either receive your 13th month
free or your 14th month free once the temporary payment stop has been
applied. Normal payment will be resumed in the following month (unless you have
qualified for more than one free month, in which case normal payment will be resumed
after the relevant number of free months have been applied).
Please don’t cancel your direct debit as the relevant direct debit payment
will automatically be waived. Cancelling your direct debit arrangement will result
in the automatic de-activation of your Unlimited Card.
Annual pay Unlimited members – if you pay for your Unlimited
membership annually in advance your free month(s) will be applied at the end of
your 12 month subscription.
More than one free month earned – if you have qualified for
more than one free month, each free month will be applied on the same basis as above
and, where a number of successful recommendations have been processed at or around
the same time, your free months will be applied to your account on consecutive months.
New members who joined Unlimited using a Recommend a Friend code
- If you are the new member who signed up using your friend’s code, your additional
free month will be assigned to month 13 of your membership and, if you pay for your
subscription monthly, we will not take a Direct Debit payment on your usual date.
Direct Debits will then resume as normal.
