pls correct me if I'm wrong guys.

 

Glow is a post-effect, which means it is added after the rendering therefore and cannot show up in reflections.

 

The best workaround i can think of is adding the glow in photoshop/after effects.

Here's a workaround that can work if the glow shape is simple:

 

Put an omni light in the centre of the object that needs a reflectable glow. Make sure shadows are turned off. Select "visible" for the "visible light" setting. Adjust the size of the light to let a small amount of light spill just outside the object.
