‘PML’ – Philip Morris Limited, the programme organiser.
‘Referrer’ – the registered iqos.com customer referring a friend to IQOS
‘Friend’ – the person who has received a referral code from the referrer.
The Referrer must ensure they have asked for their Friend’s permission before referring them and sharing with them their unique referral code.
Referral codes can be shared via email and WhatsApp. Referral codes are individual rewards and must not be shared on social media or on large scale sharing platforms.
All Referrers and Friends must be over 18, and a smoker or user of other nicotine products. The Friend must be a first time IQOS purchaser and the Referrer must be an existing registered IQOS customer.
The Referrer can make multiple referrals and provided that these terms and conditions are complied with will be rewarded for each.
When the Friend purchases any IQOS Starter Kit, registers as a new customer on iqos.com and uses the Referrer’s unique code to make the purchase through Try IQOS, an IQOS representative, in an IQOS store or online at iqos.com, they will receive £20 off any IQOS Starter Kit (discount applied to device only).
The Referrer will normally receive a £20 credit to use on IQOS.com via email within 10 working days of the Friend completing their purchase and registering on iqos.com.
The £20 credit is valid once on any single item costing £20 or more on iqos.com. Only one code can be used per transaction and the voucher will expire 6 months from the date of issue.
If the product purchased by the Referrer using the £20 credit to use on IQOS.com is subsequently returned to PML, the Referrer will be refunded for any spend on top of the £20 credit. The code will not be returned to the Referrer.

Recycling and WEEE
RECYCLING AND WEEE
How to recycle old electrical items. If you’re buying a new electrical item from us, we will recycle your old one for free. We’ll then store it and dispose of it in an environmentally sound way. Just hand in your old device when you purchase in store. As part of our commitment to responsible retailing IQOS UK is also a member of a Distributor Take-back Scheme (DTS). IQOS UK pays into a central scheme, which helps to fund recycling sites throughout the UK. You can deposit your old electrical and electronic items at these sites free of charge.
To recycle your old electricals yourself find your nearest recycling point here: http://www.recycle-more.co.uk
Which IQOS products can be recycled? Any of our products marked with a crossed-out wheeled bin symbol on the packaging can be recycled.
Why recycle? Unwanted electrical equipment is the UKs fastest growing type of waste. Many electrical items can be repaired or recycled, saving natural resources and the environment. If you do not recycle, electrical equipment will end up in landfill where hazardous substances will leak out and cause soil and water contamination – harming wildlife and also human health. To remind you that old electrical equipment can be recycled, it is now marked with a crossed‐out wheeled bin symbol. Please do not throw any electrical equipment (including those marked with the crossed out wheeled bin symbol) in your bin.
What is WEEE? The UK WEEE Regulations were first introduced in 2007 with the aim of reducing the amount of EEE ending up in landfill. In the UK, distributors (including retailers) must provide a system which allows all customers buying new electrical equipment the opportunity to recycle their old items free of charge. Those establishing their own take‐back scheme must as a minimum offer all customers buying new electrical equipment free take back of their old electricals on a like-for-like basis.
