How it works

What is the Axios refer-a-friend program?

The big picture: Refer Axios to your friends, and you’ll earn rewards based on the number of new subscribers that you successfully refer. If you subscribe to Axios Local, you can also participate in the Axios Local refer-a-friend program.

Of note: Only new subscribers to Axios or Axios Local will count toward your referrals. Your friends will also need to confirm their subscriptions to complete their sign ups.

The bottom line: Rewards are earned based on the number of successful referrals that you have. The more you refer, the bigger your rewards.

So go ahead, start sharing with your friends, family and colleagues!
