Can I send free boxes to my friends and family?

Absolutely - you'll be the most popular person at the next family reunion! HelloFresh makes a perfect gift for friends and family.

Our free first delivery promotion is an offer that we give our customers to spread the HelloFresh love. This promotion will be offered to you when you hit certain milestones in your HelloFresh journey. To check whether you have free boxes to send, log in to your account and look on the right-hand side of the page for 'Treat Friends'. It will have a little red number in a circle indicating how many boxes you are able to send.

From here, you just enter your friend's email address and they'll receive instructions on how to place their order. If you can't see a number there, please look out for an email, which we will send when this offer is available.

[Remember: We are a weekly subscription service, so when your friends and family redeem their free box, they will receive weekly deliveries, unless they skip or deactivate their subscription by midnight on Tuesday, the week prior to their delivery]
