How To General Referral Coupons

Qualifying current customers who are referrers must generate a referral coupon through KeyBank online banking.

The code printed on the coupon is unique to that person and each code can only be used once.

The referrer must provide the code to the referee to use when opening a new account.

When the referee uses the code to open a new checking account, the referral bonuses will be activated.

If you are a qualified referrer, you should be able to find the Pay It Forward information within your KeyBank online account.

When you are logged in to your online banking, there should be a box that says “refer a friend get $50,” and you just click on it to get the process started.
