If you have not yet signed up for a SoFi money account, now might be the time to do so. Aside from the $75 bonus you’ll receive with signing up for a new account, you’ll save money on many streaming services and DoorDash order. Through June 30, you’ll receive 20% cash back on the following: Netflix, Prime Video, Disney+, Hulu, HBO Now, CBS All Access, Spotify, Pandora, Google Play Music and DoorDash. All you have to do is pay for these services with your SoFi Money account. This promotion is for all new and existing SoFi members.
What is SoFi Money?
There has been quite a bunch of hype recently about SoFi Money due to its pretty awesome sign up bonus. For starters, SoFi Money is a cash management account with absolutely no fees. Best of all, all ATM fees are reimbursed when using their debit card, so it is a great account to use when traveling. Also, there is no hard pull so it will not go against your Chase “5/24” status or show up as a ding on your credit reports.
New Members Sign Up Offer
If you are not yet a member, you can still sign up, receive the free money for new members and still take part in the claw game (through March 31, 2020).
- My SoFi Money Referral Link: Make two direct deposits of $500 or more, receive a $75 bonus.
- My SoFi Invest Referral Link: Deposit $1,000 in your account and you’ll receive a $50 bonus in free stock.
Additionally, if you refer friends or family members and they open up either account, you can continue to earn free money. You’ll receive $25 for everyone that opens up a SoFi Money account and $50 for a SoFi Invest account. You are capped at earning $10,000 per year! Thanks in advance to those who use my referral link.
I personally opened both a SoFi Money and SoFi Invest account. It took me just a few minutes to fully get both accounts set up. The process was seamless and transferring money into my account was easy. Not only did I receive free money from opening up an account, I also just got another $25 for free in a stock of my choice.
I received my SoFi Money cash bonus within just 3 business days of setting up my account, and I received my free stock from the SoFi Money account within the same time period. My debit card then arrived within a week from when I applied.
While I haven’t traveled internationally with the card yet, I have tested it out at a random ATM in my hometown many times. This card works out quite well at my favorite bagel place that only takes cash but has a random ATM in the building — perfect for when I need cash in a punch. This ATM charges a fee and I am always immediately reimbursed. So far, I truly have enjoyed my new debit card!
To refer a friend, you’ll need to install the SoFi app. (I was able to find it quickly in the App Store). Once in the app, on the upper left-hand side of the welcome screen you’ll see a circle with a person icon enclosed. Click that button.
Then, click the link that says “Invite friends.”
From there, you can refer a friend to SoFi Money and SoFi Invest. You can save your referral link and send it to friends, or you can directly send the link via a text message, email, Facebook, etc.
Free Stock with the Claw Game
On top of the bonus you’ll receive for signing up and referring members, right now SoFi is offering a fun game to give its members free stock — with the claw game.
If you are already a SoFi member, sign into your SoFi app and on the homepage scroll down to the “Invest” section. Click on the “Play for a chance to win” to get your free stock with SoFi Invest.
Play the claw game to see how much you win. I personally won $25 in free stock, which is a very nice offer for simply having an account. Especially since I can eventually transfer that money into my SoFi Money account and then straight to my bank account. I’ve seen offers of people winning anywhere between $5 and $25.
This is a great way to get some money back into your pocket simply by signing up for a debit card account. Unlike credit card welcome offers, there is no minimum amount of spend needed, no hard inquiry, no wondering whether or not you are going to get approved, etc. But really, my favorite benefit is the reimbursed ATM fees. For me personally, that is huge.
Right off the bat, you’ll receive $75 for signing up for the SoFi Money account and another $50 for signing up for a SoFi Invest account. Then, once you refer your significant other, you’ll receive another $75 in total ($25 for referring to SoFi Money and $50 for SoFi Invest). That means you personally can be ahead with $200 back in your pocket. That does not take into consideration the free money your significant other earns on the bonus or any other friends or family members you continue to refer.
