Imagine that every time you made a purchase, you were rewarded with stock, or, a small piece of ownership in a company. 

Now you can with Stash Stock-Back® Rewards.1 It’s a program that’s very similar to a cash back program—except you’re earning stock rewards, rather than cash.

And you can only get it by signing up for a Stash Invest and banking account.2

What is “Stock-Back®” and how do I earn it?

Here’s how it works: Make a purchase with your Stash Stock-Back® card3 nationwide—at more than 11 million U.S. businesses–and get rewards in the form of a fractional share of stock, on us.4 Pretty simple.

Stock-Back is our proprietary rewards program that lets you earn stock when you spend on qualifying purchases with your Stash Stock-Back® card. For example, if you buy something from Amazon, you’ll earn AMZN Stock-Back® as a reward (on us).5 If the company isn’t available as an investment on our platform, you’ll earn Stock-Back® in your choice of reward.6

So, if you make a purchase at a small, local hardware store, for example, your Stock-Back® reward will be from your custom reward.

First, you’ll need to sign up for a Stash account, which includes an Invest account and a bank account. The stock you earn on qualifying purchases will then be added to your invest account.

How does Stock-Back® Rewards compare to other rewards programs?

There are many rewards programs out there. So, how is Stock-Back® Rewards different?

The key differentiator is that other rewards programs usually dish out points or airline miles to users—points or airline miles that typically expire after a predetermined period of time.

Stock, on the other hand, is an asset that has no expiration date, and could appreciate with time. Plus, your airline miles and credit card points won’t potentially offer you dividends that can help you boost your investment account.7

Remember, though, that stocks aren’t risk-free investments. Your stock can lose value, just as it can appreciate.

Now you can build your investment portfolio whenever you spend. Get started by signing up for Stash.
