Stash Stock-Back® Card Boost Program
Terms and Conditions
Effective September 3, 2020 (the “Effective Date”) for Stock-Back® participants who receive an invitation directly from Stash to participate in the program described herein
The Stash Stock-Back® Card Boost Program (the “Program”) is a rewards program offered by Stash Financial, Inc. and/or its affiliates (collectively, “Stash”) to its customers that supplements its Stash Stock-Back® Rewards program – a rewards program offered by Stash in which a Stash debit account holder may choose to participate that enables such holder to earn fractional shares of stock of certain publicly-traded companies and/or exchange-traded funds on certain qualifying purchases made using a Stash Debit card. The Program enables Eligible Participants to make a Stock-Back® Card Boost Purchase upon making each Qualifying Purchase with their Stash Debit card, as further described below.
The Program is subject to the terms and conditions stated herein (the “Program Terms”). By choosing to participate in this Program, you are accepting and agreeing to these Program Terms. These Program Terms form an agreement between you and Stash with respect to the Program. You should read these Program Terms carefully.
Eligibility For Participation
To be eligible to receive an invitation from Stash to participate in this Program, you must satisfy each of the following conditions on or after the Effective Date (each, an “Eligible Participant”): (i) have both a Stash Invest account and a Stash Banking account, both of which must be in good standing (as further described below), (ii) be enrolled as a participant in the Stash Stock-Back® Rewards program, which is governed by the Stock-Back® Rewards Terms and Conditions (the “Stock-Back® Program Terms”) and adhere to the Stock-Back® Program Terms and meet the eligibility requirements set forth therein, (iii)
See the full Stock-Back® Program Terms referenced above, which you agreed to when you joined that program, for important disclosures about that program. The Stock-Back® Program Terms are incorporated herein by reference with the same force and effect as though fully set forth herein. Stash reserves the right to determine who to send invitations to hereunder and whether to rescind any invitations that are not accepted in accordance with these Program Terms.
Stash and/or Green Dot Bank reserve the right to determine in its and/or their sole or joint discretion whether an account is closed and/or in good standing. An account in good standing for purposes of this Program is an account for which all required account opening documentation has been completed and verified, and is not locked, or restricted, or otherwise flagged in any way. If either your Stash Banking account or your Stash Invest account is closed or not in good standing for any reason at any time, you will no longer be deemed an Eligible Participant and you will forfeit your eligibility to make Stock-Back® Card Boost Purchases with your Stash Debit card. A Stash Invest account is a taxable brokerage account advised by Stash Investments LLC.
The term “Qualifying Purchases” hereunder shall mean each point-of-sale purchase or online purchase made by an Eligible Participant using their Stash Debit card associated with their Stash Banking account that was authorized by such Eligible Participant and a hold was placed on their Stash Debit card for the purchase amount. The following transactions, however, made by an Eligible Participant with a Stash Debit card associated with their Stash Banking Account will not constitute Qualifying Purchases and thus are ineligible for purposes of this Program: (1) transactions conducted at an ATM, cash teller withdrawals, and cash withdrawals at point-of-sale, (2) the purchase of money orders or other cash-equivalents (cash-equivalents include, but are not limited to: third-party gift cards or gift certificates, prepaid open loop cards, coupons, currency, virtual currency, coins, paper money, negotiable items not yet deposited, U.S. treasury bills and commercial paper), and (3) transactions conducted through peer-to-peer (“P2P”) payment services and third-party payment accounts (including but not limited to services such as Venmo®, Square, Inc.’s CashApp® and PayPal® and other similar services). In addition, transactions deemed by Stash in its sole discretion as manufactured spend will not constitute a Qualifying Purchase. Stash also reserves the right in our sole discretion to reverse the credit of any Stock-Back® Card Boost Purchase(s) in the event an Eligible Participant’s Qualifying Purchase(s) is (i) the subject of a return, credit, chargeback or similar rescinded transaction, or (ii) does not subsequently and successfully post to your Stash Banking account.
We reserve the right to determine in our sole discretion whether a particular transaction constitutes a Qualifying Purchase hereunder. Eligible Participants will not be eligible to make Stock-Back® Card Boost Purchases hereunder if they do not make any Qualifying Purchases.
Stock-Back® Card Boost Purchases
Each Eligible Participant that receives an invitation to participate in this Program must accept their invitation by clicking or tapping the “Turn on Boost” icon in accordance with the interactive instructions displayed through the Stash mobile application in order to successfully enter the Program. Once an Eligible Participant agrees to enter the Program, they will be eligible to make Stock-Back® Card Boost Purchases, as further described below.
Accordingly, by entering this Program you acknowledge and agree that upon making each Qualifying Purchase hereunder, you are authorizing Stash or its affiliates to transfer “Boosts”, as defined and described below, from your available funds from your Stash Banking account into the cash balance of your Stash Invest account in accordance with these Program Terms. A “Boost” is the difference between the amount of goods or services purchased by you in connection with a Qualifying Purchase and the lowest whole dollar amount that is greater than the amount of such Qualifying Purchase, except for any Qualifying Purchase where the amount of goods or services purchased by you is equal to an exact whole dollar amount. As an example, if you make a Qualifying Purchase of $5.20, your Boost associated with that Qualifying Purchase will be equal to $0.80. Alternatively, if you make a Qualifying Purchase of $5.00, there will be no Boost associated with that Qualifying Purchase. You also hereby acknowledge and agree that if you either do not have sufficient funds in your Stash Banking account to cover any Boost or if your Qualifying Purchase associated with a Boost fails to successfully post to your Stash Banking account, then that corresponding Boost transaction will not be completed. For the avoidance of doubt, Boosts will only be completed in connection with any Qualifying Purchases you make following the time you agree to enter this Program.
Once your Qualifying Purchase associated with a Boost successfully posts to your Stash Banking account, then by entering this Program you are agreeing that Stash will automatically withdraw the Boost from your Stash Banking Account, deposit the Boost into your Stash Invest account and immediately initiate a “buy” order in the amount of the Boost in a fractional share of stock of the specific underlying publicly-traded company and/or exchange-traded fund constituting your Stock-Back® base reward attributable to your Qualifying Purchase, as governed by the Stock-Back® Program Terms (each, a “Stock-Back® Card Boost Purchase”). For example, if you make a Qualifying Purchase of $5.20 at a merchant that Stash has made available through the Stash Stock-Back® Rewards program, your Boost associated with that Qualifying Purchase will be equal to $0.80. Accordingly, once that Qualifying Purchase successfully posts to your Stash Banking account, Stash will automatically withdraw $0.80 from your Stash Banking account, deposit the $0.80 into your Stash Invest account and immediately initiate a Stock-Back® Card Boost Purchase in the amount of $0.80 in publicly-traded stock of that specific merchant. For the avoidance of doubt, you will also receive a Stock-Back® base reward attributable to your Qualifying Purchase in publicly-traded stock of that specific merchant, as governed by the Stock-Back® Program Terms.
By participating in this Program, you grant Stash Investments LLC the limited discretionary authority required to complete the securities transaction necessary to complete each Stock-Back® Card Boost Purchase. Specifically, Stash Investments LLC will have discretion over the Boost amount credited to your Stash Invest account pursuant to these Program Terms only to the limited extent necessary to fulfill any Stock-Back® Card Boost Purchase(s). This discretionary authority is in addition to the limited discretionary authority you have already granted to Stash Investments LLC pursuant to the Advisory Agreement, as amended, that you agreed to when you opened your Stash Invest account. Accordingly, your acceptance of these Program Terms and participation in the Program expressly amends and modifies your Advisory Agreement as of the date you initially accept these terms, and you are hereby notified of such amendment and modification by these terms.
By agreeing to enter this Program, you are authorizing Stash Investments LLC to direct, and Stash Capital LLC to execute, all orders associated with your Stock-Back® Card Boost Purchase(s). For the avoidance of doubt, you have the ability to sell any security comprising a Stock-Back® Card Boost Purchase made under this Program after the order is completed in your Stash Invest account.
By making a Stock-Back® Card Boost Purchase, you are making a decision to invest in that specific underlying security and you agree that it is your responsibility to review and carefully consider that security, including the information available to you through the Stash mobile applications and/or website (collectively, the “Stash Platform”) about such security, before entering this Program or making any Qualifying Purchases and/or Stock-Back® Card Boost Purchases hereunder. Neither this Program itself, not the security available to be purchased through it, is a recommendation to buy any such specific security. The value of any Stock-Back® Card Boost Purchase may fluctuate over time due to a variety of factors. Please refer to the Stash Platform (www.stash.com/investments/stocks/) for a list of all investments that are available for purchase at any time. Stash reserves the right to change the list of investments available on the Stash Platform at any time and from time to time in its sole discretion.
If publicly-traded stock of the merchant (or a subsidiary thereof, if applicable) attributable to a Qualifying Purchase is available through the Stash Stock-Back® Rewards program, then your Stock-Back® Card Boost Purchase will be in publicly-traded stock of that specific merchant. Alternatively, if publicly-traded stock of the merchant (or a subsidiary thereof, if applicable) attributable to a Qualifying Purchase is not available through the Stash Stock-Back® Rewards program or otherwise capable of being fulfilled for any reason, or if the Qualifying Purchase is made at a merchant that issues publicly-traded units in a master limited partnership, your Stock-Back® Card Boost Purchase arising from that Qualifying Purchase will be in shares of one of a predetermined selection of exchange-traded funds available on the Stash platform (the “Default ETFs”). Stash will determine the list of such Default ETFs in its sole discretion and may change the predetermined selection of Default ETFs from time-to-time. Stash may also offer you, from time to time, the ability to select or change your Default ETF via the Stash Platform. Eligible Participants will only be eligible to make one (1) Stock-Back® Card Boost Purchase per Qualifying Purchase.
Each Stock-Back® Card Boost Purchase will be limited to a maximum cash value of $0.99, and shall be fulfilled by Stash in its sole discretion. Stock-Back® Card Boost Purchases will be completed within five (5) business days following the date that your Qualifying Purchase successfully posts to your Stash Banking account.
