You can change the amount, frequency, and next transfer date at any time by following these steps.
Deposit cash at a participating retailer
You can make fee-free cash deposits to your Stash banking account at some major retailers across the U.S., including CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, and Rite-Aid.2 Here’s how it works:
- Visit any participating retail location near you.
- Generate a unique barcode for that retailer on the app here.
- Show the barcode to the cashier and hand them your cash to make your deposit.

It can take up to 30 minutes for your cash to be available in your Stash banking account. If you still do not see the funds after 30 minutes, contact the store where you deposited the cash. If they can’t help you locate the missing deposit, feel free to contact us and open a dispute. Be sure to have the information on your receipt handy when you speak with a customer support representative. You can also open a dispute from the app or on the web—check out this article for more information.
Transfer your balance from a payment app (like Venmo, Cash App, or PayPal)
If you have a balance on Venmo, Cash App, or PayPal, or similar payment app, you can use that money to fund your Stash banking account. Add your Stock-BackⓇ Card as a payment method on your payment app, then transfer your balance instantly to Stash (a small fee may apply).
You can also link your Stash banking account to your payment app using your Stash banking account and routing numbers.
Set up a transfer to your Stash banking account from your external bank’s app
Check if your external bank account supports transfers to other accounts. If so, follow your bank’s instructions to initiate a transfer, and provide your Stash banking account and routing numbers when prompted.
