Evernote is already one of the biggest, if not the biggest, names in the to-do lists and productivity industry and now they want more people to sign up for their service, by enlisting the help of existing members.

To this end, they have introduced the Evernote Referral Program, where you can earn points for every person that signs up for Evernote, using your unique referral URL.  You can send the link out into the world via email, instant messaging, and social networks. Or there is a signup box on the Evernote website where you can enter the email addresses of your victims referrals, and Evernote will send out the spam referral emails for you.

You could even go completely radical and do some offline crazy antics too, such as printable coupons with your referral code on them.

But for the referral to be counted, the person has to a) sign up for a new Evernote account, and b), most importantly, install the Evernote software on either a computer, tablet, or mobile device, and log in. Logging in on the website does not count.

Weirdly though, you can only refer a maximum of 24 people to gain points. After that, your referral link will still work, but you won’t get anything for it.  Evernote doesn’t seem to want to tell you why that strange rule is in place. After all, once you stop earning anything for these referrals, what motivation would you have for continuing to send referrals their way?


But what can you get with these points, you ask?  What illustrious bounties and unspeakable riches can you get? Well, let’s blow your socks off right now and have a look.

But wait? 200 points to go to the Evernote Conference as a VIP?  I thought the maximum number of points possible was 125?  Now I am officially confused.

So go forth my fellow MUOers and expand the Evernote empire. And while you’re at it, check out the utterly fantastic Evernote manual which I wrote for MakeUseOf.

    Is the 1Gb Upload Boost a one time only thing ?? or do you get a Gb every month?

      You get a one-time boost for every 10 points you redeem. At least that's the way I interpret it. You may want to contact Evernote to ask for clarification.
