How do you actually pick which Offers I should get when I link with my friends?
Each month, we create an Offer Pool for each Offline member. An Offer Pool is basically the group of partners you could potentially get that month. When we go to match you with Offers, we look at who you’re trying to link with and try to find the overlap of all of your individual Offer Pools. From here, we see if that partner has the capacity to have you and your friends get the same thing that month, and if so, bam, you all have the same Offer.
We look at the following variables when deciding how we can give you and your friends the same Offers:
- Do you both have the same locations selected?
- Do you both have the same category preferences set?
- What Offers have you received in the past 12 months? (we exclude these)
- Do you both have an Offer linked to the other one with the friend link? (This is the most important piece).
There are some other variables we use, but these four are the most important. If any of the variables above are different between you and a friend you’ve tried to link to, it’s less likely you will have the same Offers. Check out our guides on the best way to link a partner/spouse or a group of friends below.
You can tap on a friend’s name on your Offer Customization page and see how likely you’ll both have matching Offers. Due to the number of variables and partner inventory we have, we can’t 100% guarantee that you will get the exact Offers as another member.
