Tell Your People About Root — And Get Up To $1000 Cash

We’ll cut to the chase: we pay cash for each good driver you refer to us. $25 per referral, up to $1000.

And when we say cash, we don’t mean “credit” or “discount” or “Root dollars” or whatever. We mean a check for $25 US dollars. In the mail. With your name on it.

It’s a pretty sweet deal.

Root referral program


Do I have to buy anything to get my referral $$$? Any risk to me at all?

No risk. And you’ll get your referral check whether or not you purchase a policy from us. (We don’t like bait-and-switch any more than you do.)

Do you sell my data?

No. We promise.

How do I get my money?

We’ll send you a check in the mail. When was the last time that happened?

Why such a generous referral program?

We’re building a real community over here— and we’ve found that good drivers usually know other good drivers. Your referral helps us out a lot and $$$ are the best way to say thanks.

Any limits on who I can refer?

For now, they have to be in Ohio. (But there are plenty of awesome drivers in Ohio. Shouldn't cramp your style.)

I’ve already bought a policy with Root! Where is my referral link?

First off: 🙌. You’re awesome.

Second, your referral link is in your quote email and your policy confirmation email! Still can't find it? Shoot us an email at We’ll hook you up.

What should I buy with all this extra cash?

We recommend pizza.
