Referral Answers

1. What do I receive if I refer someone?
You will receive a 15% off one entire order coupon that is valid for 3 months as a thank you! You will receive this coupon after the person you referred makes their first purchase.
2. How will I be notified when someone I refer makes a purchase?
You will receive an email with your new 15% off coupon code included. The email will not contain any information about the person who you referred. Jimmy Beans Wool values your privacy and confidentiality as much as our own. We only use your information in the same way we would want a retailer to use ours. Keeping personal information secure and confidential is our #1 priority (right next to providing wonderful products, great prices, amazing customer service, and fast shipping!)
3. Do I need to have an account with Jimmy Beans to get a referral coupon?
Yes, you must have an account with us in order to receive the 15% off coupon. This is required because the coupon codes are created specifically for you. Also, we never send unsolicited emails, so if we do not have your account contact information, we will not be able to notify you about the newly created coupon! Plus, setting up an account is easy. You can set up your own account here.
4. Does the person that I referred need to to create their own account in order for me to receive my 15% coupon?
No. The person you referred does not need to create an account, but with all the benefits available to account holders we would recommend it! Plus, they will need an account set up to receive their 15% referral coupon after hopefully telling friends and family about us, so might as well set the account right away!
5. What if I have previously set up an account, but did not enter who referred me?
No problem, simply log in to to your account and edit your personal options. You can change the "heard about us" fields to "referral by friend" and enter your friend's email address. Next time you place an order, the person that referred you will receive their coupon as a thank you!
6. Are there any other terms and conditions I should know about?
  • If we cannot find the person's account who referred you, then we will not be able to create a coupon. So, please double check their email address!
  • The referrer will only receive 1 coupon per person referred. Meaning, if one person refers 3 people that make purchases they will receive 3 different coupons that can be used on individual orders. The referrer will not, however, receive multiple coupons if the same referred person makes multiple purchases.
  • You cannot refer yourself. We are offering this promotion as a way to say thank you for helping notify others about our store. Please do not abuse this offer, or we will be forced to stop making it available. We're sure it will not be a problem! Thank you for your understanding!
  • We reserve the right to end this referral program at any time. If we need to end the program, coupons already created are still valid until up to their original expiration date.
We provide Endless Possibilities® for you including yarn, knitting gifts, needles, kits, sale yarn, free knitting patterns, and more!
