We all love getting things for free, whether it’s a free sample, a two-week free trial, or even a good old Buy One Get One Free offer.

Offers are great, but we think we can do one better.

You can now extend your ProWritingAid Premium License for a whole year or even a lifetime completely free with our new referral system.

The system is simple. If you refer 10 of your friends and they give ProWritingAid a try, you’ll get a free annual license added to your ProWritingAid account. And if you refer 20 friends, we’ll give you lifetime access to ProWritingAid Premium for free, forever.

NOTE: This system is for referring completely new ProWritingAid users only. The people you refer to ProWritingAid must never have accessed our website prior to using your referral link. If they have visited before they visit using your link, you will not be credited with the referral.

How Do I Refer Someone?

From the ProWritingAid website, head to your account page. There, you should see this referral box, which contains a personalized link for you to send to your friends:

Just copy the link, and send it in a message or email, like this:

Once you’ve spread the ProWritingAid love far and wide, you can return to your account page to keep track of how many sign-ups/test-drives you’ve achieved. Scroll down to the referral box as before, and click on "Learn More" to view your referral card:

Your friends just need to sign up for a free ProWritingAid account and then test out some text in the software. If your referees do not use the software, that referral will not count towards your total. Once they do that, your referral card will begin to fill up. Your referees don’t need to pay for a ProWritingAid license—signing up for a free account and running an analysis will do the trick:

Once you’ve collected 10 stamps, your free annual license will be added to your account automatically.

What If I Already Have a License?

If you already have a ProWritingAid Premium annual license, your free license will begin when your current license expires.

If you didn’t previously have a ProWritingAid Premium license, your free license will begin on the day you collect your tenth referral, and will expire one year from that date. The start date of your new license can’t be altered.

Once you’ve collected a further 10 stamps (making 20 stamps in total), your license will be converted into a lifetime license.

What Do I Get with a ProWritingAid Premium License?

With ProWritingAid Premium, you can edit:

There’s no limit on word count, and you also get access to our Writer’s Resource Library for free.

I have created a ProWritingAid account one week ago. I referred over 10 people. But immediately I saw they removed referrals from my account referred from my account. And it becomes zero. My Account Email ID is mk.***
Hi there! Thanks for writing in about this. Please email our support team directly at so that we can help resolve the problem. :)
same I referred to 20 people with so much hard work and it didn't work . I would request to please help me out and get me free pro writing aid for a lifetime free.
Please reach out to our support team at so that we can figure this out! :)
I created a ProWritingAid account a few months ago. I made great efforts to invite 20 people to register, and received an email confirming the lifetime license of ProWritingAid Premium. I also took a screenshot of it. As a result, after a month, it can no longer be used. I send an e-mail to customer service,, three days later, there was no response. Who has a way to stop being fooled?
Hello there. I'm sorry that you have been having issues here. We have been quite overrun with emails recently due to black Friday and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
Does the referred person have to download the desktop software??
No, they do not need to download the software. All we ask is that they trial the software and to do that, you need to create an account. Let me know if you have any further questions.
yesterday, I have send this best product to my 7 friends to signup and try for it instead of Grammarly. Out of them 4 persons signup and tried and apreciated to me for this app. But today only 2 signup showing on my dashboard.Why???
Hey there! Can you please send an email about this to Our support team will be happy to help!
I have already referred more than 20 people but up to now, I am not upgraded to Premium nor to lifetime. What surprised me is that you send me an email that I just referred one person. How many people do I have to refer so that I qualify for premium and lifetime?
Hey there! Your friends just need to sign up for a free ProWritingAid account and then test out some text in the software. If your referees do not use the software, that referral will not count towards your total. Once they do that, your referral card will begin to fill up. Proactively using ProWritingAid means uploading a document, or writing a new document directly, into our Web Editor then running it through our reports. Your referrals can then edit their text by accepting or ignoring the individual suggestions made by our app. I am sorry if this was unclear. We strongly recommend that you encourage all users you referred to ProWritingAid to use their free accounts right away. If you believe your users have used the app but the referral number still isn't going up, could you please send a message to with your email address so that one of our support team members can look into this further for you?
there is no longer a referral box. was this feature removed?
Unfortunately, since we first launched our referral program, we found several discussions on social platforms about how to manipulate the system we had established. Our checks confirmed this and revealed a lot of fraudulent activity going on. Therefore, we have had to close our referral scheme to prevent further fraudulent activity. This is why your referral link and tracker have now disappeared from your account. Please don't worry, for all users who have already referred people to ProWritingAid, they will still be able to continue referring using their unique referral link. If you don't know your referral link, please reach out to our support team at - they'll be happy to tell you yours. Since you can no longer see your referral tracker, you will need to contact our team whenever you'd like an update on your referrals. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause!
