Toast is offers a $500 bonus for referring a new customer. Please review these terms carefully. Then, if you're a Toast customer, employee, or restaurant consultant, refer a friend.


  • Leads must be referred to Toast through the online form or in writing to a Toast employee.

  • The previous $1,500 promotion is only applicable for leads referred between September 27 and December 31, 2016. Referred leads in that timeframe must close (i.e. enter into a binding, definitive non-cancelable agreement with Toast for Toast’s products) before July 1, 2017.

Bonus Eligibility

  • Restaurant owners or operators cannot refer their own restaurants.
