Referral Program

Our SLR Lounge Premium referral program is designed to reward our loyal members for helping us grow our community.

How Do i use the referral code?

1. Go the “Refer a Friend” section of your account settings.

2. Click the “Copy Referral Link”

3. Paste and share the link anywhere

That’s it!  For each friend you refer who upgrades to a Premium Membership, you will earn:

  • 90 days for each SLR Premium (Annual) signup

Credit you earn from referrals will automatically extend the date of your next invoice if you currently have an active Premium subscription.

Other Options | Add Your Code to Any URL

If you’d like, you can also add your referral code to ANY URL from the site to gain more Premium referral credits.

Most of the time, you’ll want to link directly to the information page for SLR Lounge Premium, but it might make sense to link directly to an article, a sale announcement, a critique submission, or any other web address that starts with “”

To do this, follow these steps:

1. Go the “Refer a Friend” section of your account settings.

2. Copy the portion of your referral link that starts with the “?” and ends with a number, i.e. the highlighted section in the image above.

Note that  the actual number will not be “2” but will be your unique id number.

3. Add the copied portion of the code to ANY URL on the site.

Here are some examples:

  • https//
  • https//

When Do I Get My Credits?

In order to receive your Premium referral credits, the user signing up with your referral link must complete their sign-up for a Premium membership. Once the payment for their subscription is processed, your Premium credits will automatically be added to your account.

4 Tips on getting the Most Out Of the Referral Program

  1. Share on Social Media – When you share any article on SLR Lounge, be sure to add your referral code at the end of the link.
  2. Recommend to Photographer Friends – If you’ve learned from Premium and you’d like to help your friends succeed, genuine endorsements will always be the most effective way to get signups from your referral link.
  3. Take Advantage of Sales and Promos – When we are having a large sale, share the link and append your referral code.  Conversions skyrocket during sales, so those are great times to share your links.
  4. Share Contests and Giveaways – Contests and Giveaways are relevant times to share links from SLR Lounge that have a chance of converting to premium signups if shared in the right places.
