Predatory fees from financial services are awful. In 2019, Stashers who paid at least one external bank fee paid an average of $382/year in overdraft fees to their other banks.*
We think that’s wrong. So when we built Stash, we did it with a completely different financial structure. Stash plans are simple, transparent, and start at just $1/month with no hidden fees.†
We’re all about transparency. Just like how you pay a flat-fee subscription to a music streaming service for access to millions of songs, you pay Stash a flat-fee subscription ($1, $3, or $9 per month) for access to all your money needs—like fractional share investing, a debit card that earns stock when you spend,1 and unlimited financial advice.
*The average amount of overdraft fees that a banking customer paid is derived from data obtained from linked external checking accounts analyzed through the Quovo service. Average overdraft fee calculation is based on a lookback of users’ bank account transactions from January 1, 2019 through December 31, 2019 for the following type of fees: Overdraft Fees, as categorized by Quovo. Banking account does provide overdraft services.
