Referrals Terms and Conditions

To Refer a Friend:

Any user who is registered with ChefXchange can refer a friend. You do not need to have ever booked a culinary experience on ChefXchange to refer a friend. We refer to the person receiving a referral code as your referral. Referral codes should only be used for personal and non-commercial purposes. This means that you can share your invite link with your personal connections via email, Twitter, Facebook, and personal blogs. You agree not to publish or distribute the link, or cause the link to be published or distributed, on or via methods, platforms and media where you have no reasonable basis for believing that all or most of the readers or recipients are your personal friends (such as coupon websites, Reddit, Wikipedia).

Receiving and Redeeming Credits

You will receive credit after your referral's qualifying booking has taken place. As soon as one of your referrals successfully completes a qualifying booking, you will be credited with the appropriate U.S. dollar amount (or its equivalent in your local currency* if we support it) as described on the link you clicked to send the referral or accompanying promotional materials. All of your earned credits will be automatically applied to your next qualifying booking in the form of a coupon (up to 4 coupons of a maximum value of $100 can be redeemed for the same booking), which you will see on the Dashboard page. You cannot combine your credits with an additional coupon. Credits expire after one year from the date that they are issued.

Qualifying Culinary Experience

A qualifying culinary experience has a total value (excluding any service fees) of $100 (or its equivalent in your referral’s local currency*, if supported by us) or more. All bookings must be booked and paid for via the ChefXchange platform, and completed by the referral, in order to receive or redeem credits. A booking that is subsequently canceled, refunded or altered such that the total value (excluding any service fees) becomes less than $100 (or its equivalent in your referral’s local currency*, if supported by us), does not qualify for credits. A booking also does not qualify if you are either the Chef or the Foodie on the reservation, or if both the Chef and the Foodie were referred by you.

Multiple Referrals

If your referral was also referred by another user, you will receive the travel credit after a qualifying booking if the referral uses your referral code or clicks on your referral link when they sign up. If your referral uses a different referral code or clicks on another person’s referral link when they sign up, you will not receive the credit.

Limited Time Only

This incentive program is for a limited time only, and we may withdraw or suspend this incentive program (in whole or in part) at any time. The requirements and incentives are also subject to change at any time.

If You’ve Been Invited To Join ChefXchange Via a Referral

Sign up using a valid referral code (or by clicking on a valid referral link) from an existing ChefXchange user and you’ll receive a coupon credit for use toward your next qualifying booking on ChefXchange. The standard coupon credit is $25 (or its equivalent in your local currency*, if we support it), but may vary in some cases if you signed up during a promotional period. Varying credit amounts and additional terms will be shown in the referral invitation or accompanying promotional materials.

To claim your credit, visit the Dashboard tab of your Account page and enter your referral code within 30 days from the day you signed up for your ChefXchange account.

We reserve the right to suspend your account and remove referrals should we notice any activity we determine as abuse of the referral program.


If any provision in these terms are held to be invalid, void, or unenforceable, such provision (or the part of it that is making it invalid, void or unenforceable) will be struck and not affect the validity of and enforceability of the remaining provisions.

Updates to the Terms

We can update these terms at any time without prior notice. If we modify these terms, we will post the modification on the website, applications, or services, which are effective upon posting. By continuing to send referrals after we have posted a modification, you are indicating that you agree to be bound by the updated terms. If the modified terms are not acceptable to you, your only recourse is to stop sending referrals.

* Your or your referral’s local currency equivalent credit amount will be calculated using a system-wide rate, known as the base exchange rate, for currency conversion using data from one or more third parties, such as OANDA. We regularly update the base exchange rate, but it may not be identical to the real-time market rate.
