A Star Citizen referral code is a code that you can use when you set up an account for Star Citizen to get Star Citizen game credits for free. Star Citizen calls these game credits United Earth Credits, so you'll usually see the term abbreviated as UEC. Using a Star Citizen referral code gives your account 5000 UEC for free! The Star Citizen referral code program is officially supported by the Star Citizen development company and is available all year-round; however, you can not use a Star Citizen referral code after you set up a Star Citizen account - you can only use a Star Citizen referral code when you set up your Star Citizen account.
Star Citizen is not available in online game stores like Steam or Epic, and you need to create an account with the Star Citizen development company, Cloud Imperium Games, to purchase and play Star Citizen. In the next section, we go over the steps you need to take when you "enlist", the Star Citizen term for setting up an account, with a Star Citizen referral code and receive 5000 free UEC.
If you want to use Star Citizen referral code, here are the steps you need to take when you sign up for a Star Citizen account:
The best reason is the 5000 FREE STAR CITIZEN CREDITS!
Using a referral code is the only way to receive 5000 Star Citizen game credits (UEC) for free. These credits will be available to you on Day 1 when Star Citizen is released, and you can use them to buy anything in Star Citizen.
During development, "citizens", the Star Citizen term for players, are provided a stipend of 20000 "alpha UEC" when they start playing; however, you will not be able to use these alpha UEC when Star Citizen development ends and the Star Citizen is released.
Enlisting is the first step to being able to play Star Citizen, but it is not the only step you need to take before you can play Star Citizen.
If a Star Citizen free fly is not ongoing, or if you want to play Star Citizen beyond the promotional period, then you need to purchase a Star Citizen starting package to be able to play! If you need to purchase a game package, then check out our recommendations for the best starter ships and the steps you need to take to buy a Star Citizen starter package on our Pick a Starter Ship page.
If a Star Citizen free fly promotion is ongoing, then you can use that to play Star Citizen for free during the promotion period. Once the Star Citizen free fly ends, you will not be able to play Star Citizen, but your progress will be saved (unless there is a wipe!) If you enlisted to participate a free fly event, then check out our How to Join a Free Fly page to learn how to access the Star Citizen free fly.
If the Star Citizen referral code worked, then you will see a balance of 5000 UEC in your Star Citizen account. To check if the Star Citizen referral code worked when you enlisted, you can check your UEC balance by following the directions below:
