What are Stock-Back™ rewards?

We reward you with stocks for making qualified purchases. Let’s say you make a purchase with your Stash debit card at Amazon. We’ll reward you with AMZN (Amazon) stock. So whenever you buy from a publicly traded company, you’ll get fractional shares of that stock.

So what happens when you buy from a company that isn’t publicly traded? That’s easy. We’ll still give you rewards, but it’ll be invested in an ETF. You get to choose which ETF you’d like as your default. So if you buy from a local restaurant or other small business, you’ll get fractional shares in your default ETF as your Stock-Back™ reward.
