Referral Rewards Program

The Kamaʻāina Directory offers a platform to help local Hawaiʻi Island businesses achieve greater visibility with a searchable directory, create their very own, easy-to-manage website landing page, highlight their Kamaʻāina specials to attract customers, and show the community that their store or office is COVID-safe and open for business!

We need YOUR help to spread the word!
Send a local business OUR way and we'll send some moolah YOUR way!

How to Participate

  1. Use the form below to sign up for the Referral Rewards Program. You only need to complete the form once!

  2. Refer one or more local businesses to our website—tell them to visit our homepage and click “Join” or you may share this direct join link. Any businesses you refer MUST be registered in Hawaiʻi and headquartered on the Big Island.

  3. Make sure the business knows to enter YOUR NAME as their referral source when they sign up for membership!

  4. You will receive a $20 reward for every business that you refer who successfully joins the Kama’āina Directory! We’ll transfer your reward(s) to your platform of choice within 7 business days once the business you have referred has signed up.

It's THAT easy!
We believe a strong local economy means real prosperity and resiliency for our island. #thinklocalbuylocal
