What is Refer-A-Friend?

Refer-A-Friend is a referral program that allows you to earn money for each of your friends who open a personal checking account with Central Bank.

How Refer-A-Friend Works

If you’re a current customer, log into your Central Bank Online Banking or Mobile Banking App. You’ll have a custom referral link and QR code, specific to you. Share this link with your friends, or have your friends scan your QR code, to open an account.
