We have an incredible offer for all our valued users who actively contribute to the growth of our community!

You have the power to earn exciting rewards by inviting your friends to join Hack The Box. It's as simple as sharing the joy and benefits of our platform with those you know.

Once your friends register, complete modules, or purchase subscriptions, you will be rewarded with cubes as a token of our appreciation.

The Hack The Box referral program offers incentives only for the HTB Academy.

The Rewards

The Hack The Box Academy referral program offers multiple rewards. You may be awarded cubes when the following conditions are met:

After Registration 👨‍💻

  • Refer 2 Friends → 5 Cubes

  • Refer 5 Friends → 10 Cubes

  • Refer 15 Friends → 20 Cubes

Note: in order to count as a successful registration, the referee must complete the HTB Academy onboarding questionnaire and any HTB Academy module (including free Tier 0 modules).

After Module Completion ✅

Every time a user you invite completes HTB Academy modules, you will be able to unlock rewards. The amount of cubes is based on the modules’ Tiers, as follows:

  • Tier II module completed* → 5 Cubes

  • Tier III module completed → 10 Cubes

  • Tier IV module completed → 20 Cubes

*This reward won't apply if the referred user has an active HTB Academy Student subscription.

After Subscription Purchase 💰

Every time a user you invite purchases an HTB Academy subscription, you will be able to unlock rewards. The amount of cubes is based on the subscription plan, as follows:

  • Silver Monthly → 35 Cubes

  • Gold Monthly → 65 Cubes

  • Platinum Monthly → 120 Cubes

  • Silver Annual → 300 Cubes

The HTB Academy team retains the right to alter the rewards in case of fraudulent activities or cases that enable abuse.

When to Expect The Rewards

You'll be delighted to know that rewards earned through Registrations and Module Completion will be promptly credited to your profile. As soon as your friends join and successfully complete modules, you'll see the fruits of your referral efforts right away!

Regarding rewards earned from Monthly Subscriptions, we have a timeline in place to ensure transparency and prevent any misuse of our system. You can expect these rewards to be added to your profile precisely one (1) month and two (2) days after the subscription's start date.

We've designed a strategic approach for the Annual subscriptions to distribute the rewards in batches. Over four (4) months and two (2) days from the subscription's start date, you will receive incremental batches of rewards. These batches will be distributed as follows: 20, 50, 90, and finally, 140 cubes.

This approach is implemented to maintain the integrity of our program and safeguard against any fraudulent or abusive cases related to payments and refunds.

Referral Link Usage:

You can find your referral link through your Hack The Box Academy user dashboard. It will provide information on the number of referrals you've made, how many have converted, and the rewards you've earned.

Prohibited Actions for Referrals:

  • No duplicate account invites

  • No self-referrals or use of alternative contact information

  • No creating multiple accounts for self-invitations

  • No inviting existing HTB Academy users

  • No inviting fictitious individuals
