Your friend must be new to Rubbersole and place a first order of £50 or more to qualify for the offer using the same email address you use to recommend them. Once your friend has shopped, your sponsor account will be credited with £10 (credited 30 days after the date of order for orders of £50 or more that are not subject to any returns). All introducers must be existing account holders.

You can sponsor up to 100 people and earn up to £1000.

Loyalty programme

Rubbersole has a loyalty points programme. Customers earn points for their purchases, which can later be exchanged for gift vouchers which give money off future orders.

For every pound you spend at Rubbersole, you will be awarded 2 points. Each point is worth 1p. The number of points earned for each product is shown on the product page.

Points will be added to your total 30 days after your order was placed, so we can leave plenty of time for you to return items if you want to. Once 30 days have passed, points for the items you’ve kept will be added to your balance automatically. You can see your balance by clicking on 'My Account’ in the top right hand corner of the page.

You will earn points on shoes, clothing, bags and accessories. The only exclusion to earning points are delivery charges.

Once your balance reaches 500 points, you'll be able to exchange those points for a gift voucher – £5 for every 500 points - which you can use against your next order. You can also save up your points.

If you find that your promotional code isn’t working then please check the below:
  • You can only use one discount/promotional code per order.

  • You can also check out our general terms and conditions regarding promotional codes by looking at the "Conditions of our current promotional offers".
  • Some codes will only work for specific people. If you’ve received the code in an email from Rubbersole then the code may also be locked to that email address. Make sure you’re trying to use the code using your Rubbersole account that has the same email address as we sent the code to.
