Note: Rewards are only available to non-supervised accounts in the United States (excluding Hawaii, Guam, and U.S. Virgin Islands) and Canada. For more information, please refer to our Stadia Referral Promotion Terms and Conditions.

What kind of reward do I get when I sign up using an invite?
If you sign up and choose to subscribe to Stadia Pro, you'll get an extra month of Stadia Pro in addition to your 1-month trial subscription.
I used an invite to sign up for Stadia, but didn't subscribe to Stadia Pro when I created my account. Can I still get an extra month of Pro?

I invited someone to Stadia. When do I get a reward?
Between June 1, 2021 12:00 a.m. PDT and August 31, 2021 11:59 p.m. PDT, you'll get an immediate, one-time reward (up to 3) each time someone signs up for Stadia during the promotional period using an invite you send them. You can also receive an additional reward when someone who uses your invite to sign up for Stadia pays for at least one month of Stadia Pro after the end of their trial period.
For information about the current reward promotion, visit stadia.com or open the Stadia app , then select Referral at the top of the Stadia home screen.
How will I receive my reward for inviting someone to Stadia?
An email with information about your reward will be sent to the email address associated with your Stadia account. Rewards like extra Stadia Pro subscription time will be automatically applied to your account if you have an active subscription to Stadia Pro. If you don't have an active Stadia Pro subscription, you'll have to sign up for Stadia Pro before you can receive additional subscription time.
I invited someone to Stadia, but didn't get a reward. What can I do?
You can get an immediate, one-time reward for each person (up to 3) who joins Stadia using your invite between June 1, 2021 12:00 a.m. PDT and August 31, 2021 11:59 p.m. PDT. Before you can receive a reward, each person must use your invite to create their Stadia account during the same period.
Before you're eligible for an ongoing referral reward, each person who uses your invite to join Stadia (up to 10 per calendar year) must pay for at least one month of Stadia Pro after their trial period ends. For example, if the person you invited to Stadia receives 1 month of Stadia Pro when they subscribe, and an additional month from using your invite, you won't be able to receive the ongoing referral reward until at least 2 months have elapsed. At the end of their trial period, they'll have the option to pay for their Stadia Pro subscription. If they do, you'll get a reward.
For additional help, please contact the Stadia support team.
If two or more people invite the same person to Stadia, who gets the reward?
Only the person whose invite was used to sign up for Stadia will receive a reward once the reward conditions have been met.
Is there a limit to how many Stadia invites I can share with people?
No. You can invite as many people to Stadia as you want.
Is there a limit to how many rewards I can receive?
Yes. For immediate, one-time rewards, you can only receive up to 3 during the promotional period. For ongoing referral rewards that require your friend to pay for their Pro subscription, you can receive no more than 10 rewards during each calendar year.
When do rewards expire?
If you receive a reward of Stadia Pro subscription time, you must claim it within 12 months after it becomes available to you. If you receive the Stadia Controller discount, it must be claimed within 30 days of receiving the reward email. The special avatar can be selected at any time after you receive it.
I don't live in the US or Canada. Can I still receive a month of Stadia Pro when I sign up?
If you aren't a resident of the US or Canada, you'll still receive 1 month of Stadia Pro when you sign up for a new Stadia account. However, you won't be eligible for an additional month if you sign up using an invite.
