Can't access referral. Get told :COULDN’T ACCEPT REFERRAL


Hi, I've just bought the Quest2 and tried to accept the referral, but I just get a page that says "COULDN’T ACCEPT REFERRAL" but no further information. I have an old DK2 and my account hasn't been used in some time. I just bought the Quest2 after my son told me how much he likes his, and he sent me a referral, but something is wrong with the system and after I logged in and tried to redeem it says

Something went wrong and your referral couldn’t be accepted. Please try again."
What do I need to do? I will try completing the log in with the headset and see if that makes a difference, but something is definitely wrong here. Please help.
