Refer a friend to Gusto | Earn a sign-up bonus

Invite a friend to try Gusto! You’ll both get gift cards. $300 for you, $100 for them.

  1. Sign in to your Gusto account.
  2. Head to the Refer & Earn section in the left menu.
  3. Share your referral link on Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, or email your friends to try Gusto. You can also copy your unique link to share with friends to sign up.

When will the gift card arrive?

You'll receive your gift card by email within 30 days after your friend has paid their first month's invoice for payroll. 


  • To be eligible for this promotion, your friend needs to sign up for Gusto through your personal referral link.
    • The referred account must be on the Simple, Plus, or Premium Plan, and process an employee payroll.
  • This promotion does not apply to accounts that are closed before the referral bonus is issued.
  • Gift cards expire after six months from when the gift card was sent—we can't resend a new gift card after this time.
  • Gusto reserves the right to declare a referral ineligible for the promotion if Gusto believes that you are abusing the referral program.
