One way or another, Christmas 2020 looks like it’ll be a very strange way to round out a very strange year. Many of us will be a little further away from our loved ones than we’d like, and finances are tight all over the country. That’s why we’re doing our bit to help make the holidays a little happier this year.

At RIFT, we’re all about making life richer, and that goes for Christmas just as much as your tax refund claims. Now we’re bringing the cheer with a whole new way to win prizes, earn rewards and spread the tax refund love. Welcome to the RIFT Countdown to Christmas!

Here’s how it works. Every week between now and the Big Day, we’ll be wrapping up an amazing early gift for one of our customers who helps their friend get a tax refund in time for Christmas. All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning is to keep on referring your mates, co-workers and family to RIFT for their tax refunds. If the person you referred gets in touch to kick off their claim within the week, you get entered into the prize draw for free!
