Members earn $50 for every successful referral.

Coastal Community Credit Union today announced the launch of their new member referral program, which rewards their existing members who refer friends, family and colleagues. Coastal Community members receive a $50 account credit for every successful referral that leads to a new membership.

The Coastal Community Member Referral Program was designed to reward existing members who were already making recommendations to the credit union, as surveys showed that 78% of members are likely to recommend the credit union to friends and family. Each qualified member who signs up through the Member Referral Program, as well as the member who referred them, receives a $50 account credit. Members can earn up to $500 in a calendar year. Details of the program can be found at

”We’re very excited about the launch of our reMember program,” said Mike Goerzen, AVP Marketing for Costal Community. “Our members have been telling us that they would like to refer their friends and family. Now we have an easy way for them to make referrals and be rewarded for their advocacy.”

The Costal Community Member Referral Program is powered by RewardStream, whose referral rewards platform, Spark™, was designed specifically for use by financial institutions and facilitates referrals both online as well as innovative ways to capture in-person referrals—the most influential and highest converting type of referral.

“We look forward to helping Coastal Community grow their business through an innovative referral program,” said James Christensen, CEO of RewardStream. “A majority of their existing members would already recommend the services to others, so rewarding their members for referrals is a win-win for Coastal Community and their members.”
