You earn 300 points, a taxable cash bonus or one free spot on a Teacher Appreciation Weekend when your referral leads an EF Educational Tour (ET) with at least six full-paying travelers within four years of the date you submitted the referral to EF. If your referral travels with EF Explore America (EA) you are eligible for the 300 global points or the cash bonus when they travel with at least 10 full-paying travelers. If your referral travels with EF College Study Tours (CST) with at least six full-paying travelers your referral will receive a $500 tour scholarship. Only one bonus may be awarded per tour. If your referral to ET or EA is valid, 300 Global Points will automatically post to your account on the day your referral departs on their qualifying EF Tour. If you prefer the cash bonus, the 300 points will be deducted from your account and you will receive a check in the mail (cash bonuses will generate a 1099 tax form). If you prefer the Teacher Appreciation Weekend (ET only), the 300 points will be deducted from your account. To qualify for a Teacher Appreciation Weekend, your referral must lead a qualifying tour within the same travel season as the Teacher Appreciation Weekend.
