Using Rover’s promotion tools on your dashboard, you can create a custom promo code and URL. The custom URL is a shorter link to your profile that can be easily shared on social media or printed on business cards (like this: www.Rover.com/sit/EXAMPLE).
The custom promo code gives pet parents you’ve recruited to Rover $20 off their first stay—and the best part? Rover covers the discount, so you still get your full payment.
Want to share that discount with friends and family across the country? If a new Rover user redeems your code and books with another sitter, they get $20 off and you get $10 in cash. It’s a win-win!
How it works: When a new user books their stay with another sitter, you get your referral $10 deposited into your Rover wallet within 72 hours of their first booking. From there, it’s redeemable just like your pet-sitting earnings, via PayPal or check.
There are many tools on your dashboard that you can use to share your code and URL. Plus, there are social media sites like Facebook and Twitter, advertising sites like Craigslist and Google+, and a Rover store that sells everything from business cards to poop bag holders.

Q: Do I cover the discount of $20?
A: Rover covers the discount! You still receive your full payment for providing pet-sitting services.
Q: Is there anywhere that I can’t share my promo code and URL?
A: You can’t distribute your code on sites that are designed just to share coupon or discount codes. Also, the promo code is blocked in your profile text and Rover message text.
Q: Why shouldn’t the code be shared in Rover messages or my profile?
A: If a new user finds you through Rover search, that means Rover has already paid for advertising to help them discover Rover. If you share your code with a dog lover who was already using the site, that’s less money that we can spend bringing you similar clients who aren’t already familiar with Rover.
Q: Can I change my promo code and URL after I’ve picked it?
A: Your promo code and URL are permanent. That way, if you’ve already shared the code, it won’t suddenly stop working for somebody trying to redeem it later.
