Frequently asked questions

- Access more than 10,000 expert-led video courses via LinkedIn Learning
What if my gift recipient does not have a LinkedIn profile?
Your gift recipient can easily create a profile at LinkedIn.com. We recommend writing your name on the gift card sleeve so that your gift recipient can search for and connect with you on LinkedIn!
Do my Premium gift cards expire? How long will my gift recipient have access to LinkedIn Premium?
Yes, these gift cards will expire. Please share and ask your recipients to redeem by 12/31/19. Your recipient will have access to LinkedIn Premium for 12 months after activating the subscription.
What happens if my gift recipient already has LinkedIn Premium?
Recipients who already have a LinkedIn Premium subscription are not eligible to redeem this offer. We recommend sharing this gift with somebody who does not currently use LinkedIn Premium.
I’m not sure who I should give LinkedIn Premium to. How can I find a Plus One?
We recommend sharing your LinkedIn Premium gift with somebody outside of your typical network. It might be someone you meet on your commute today, or someone you happen to strike up a conversation with at a café. Looking for more examples? We've also included a variety of local and virtual mentorship opportunities here.
How does my gift recipient activate their Premium subscription?
After they enter the unique website URL listed on their card, your gift recipient will be taken to a LinkedIn Premium landing page. From there, they can click a button that says “Activate your offer.” Because this gift includes a free subscription, no credit card is required for activation.
Is giving LinkedIn Premium the only way to take the Plus One Pledge?
No, there are other ways to take the Plus One Pledge! Connect with somebody outside of your network and offer your time, talent, or connections. It might be someone you meet on your commute today, or someone you happen to strike up a conversation with at a café. Looking for more examples? We've also included a variety of local and virtual mentorship opportunities here.
