Earning Stock-Back® Rewards with Stash
Want to make your money work harder for you? The Stash Stock-Back® Debit Mastercard® allows you to invest while you spend.1 Read on to find out the details of this benefit, offered exclusively by Stash.
How does Stock-Back® work?
To earn Stock-Back® Rewards, you must have an open Personal Brokerage portfolio, an open Stash banking account, and an active Stock-Back® Card.1 Then, all you need to do to earn rewards is make purchases with your Stock-Back® Card. We’ll give you Stock-Back® Rewards on every eligible purchase.2
What stocks will I earn with Stock-Back®?
When you spend at a publicly-traded company using your Stock-Back® Debit Card, you’ll earn stock in that company. For example, if you make a purchase on Amazon, you’ll earn a little piece of Amazon stock.
If you spend at a company that does not have stock available on our platform (for example, a regional chain, private company, or a local small business), you can choose what stock reward you want to earn from a list of stocks and ETFs (exchange traded funds).
