When referring a friend, each party may be aware the other is a client of BB&T. All measures to protect client-sensitive information and confidentiality apply. In addition, each party understands failure to receive an account bonus means a referred account did not meet offer criteria outlined below and does not imply an account application was denied.

An existing client may be incented for referring a maximum of five friends for a potential total incentive of $250.
