Recommend membership

Recommend PAM membership and get gift card rewards 

We reward members of PAM who recommend PAM membership. If your friend joins PAM, you can choose from S Group, Lidl and K Group gift cards. One recruited member gets you a €10 gift card, five recruited members gets you a €250 gift card.  


Why should you recommend PAM membership to your friends? 

When you recommend PAM membership, remember to tell your friends that PAM offers you security in your working life, as well as fantastic membership benefits such as career coaching and the CityShoppari app. To help your recruitment, you can use this example of what the membership benefits include. The stories of people in the service sector also include some good reasons for a PAM membership. 

Recommendations are easy to do online! 

You can send your friend a pre-written message on Messenger, or to your whole workplace team on WhatsApp! When you send a message through the recommendation pages, your recommendation information will be automatically included in the signup form.  

Get gift cards for new members    

PAM rewards its members for recommendations. The reward system is divided into three-month periods. The number of members you recruit in each period determines the value of the gift card you get for each period. The more members you recruit, the more you earn! 

Periods in 2023: 1 January–31 March, 1 April–31 May, 1 June–30 September and 1 October–31 December.

Gift cards are taxable income  

PAM informs the Tax Administration of any gift cards you receive. According to the Tax Administration’s guidelines, gift cards are taxable income. 

Note: The Tax Administration needs your Finnish personal identity code (henkilötunnus). If you do not have a Finnish personal identity code, see the instructions on the page

Redeem your gift cards in PAM’s online store 

After the reward period ends, you can choose the gift cards you have earned in PAM’s online store. The gift card information will be updated on the online store’s order page within about two weeks of the end of the recruitment period. You can choose several gift cards up to the amount of the reward you have earned with your recommendations. You can choose gift cards for multiple retail groups (S Group, Lidl, K Group). 

We will send you an email reminder about any gift cards you have earned. Please remember to keep your contact information up to date in PAM’s e-services. 

Please redeem your gift cards within one month of the end of the recruitment period. If you have not redeemed your gift card from the online shop within the set time, we will automatically send you the S Group gift card with the amount you have accumulated during the recommendation period.
