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, (3) peer-to-peer (“P2P”) payments and mobile wallet or account funding made with your Stash Debit account or card, (4) any purchases made using third-party payment accounts (including but not limited to services such as Venmo® and PayPal® (which also may provide P2P payments described in clause (3)) where the funding source is a Stash Debit account or the Stash Debit card and (5) transactions deemed by Stash and/or Green Dot Bank, in its and/or their sole or joint discretion, to have been manufactured spend. In addition, debit card purchases that have been authorized but that do not post to your Stash Debit account are not eligible for the Stock Rewards.
We reserve the right to determine in our sole discretion whether a particular transaction is a qualifying debit card purchase. We also reserve the right to reverse the credit of any Stock reward in the event the qualifying purchase giving rise to the reward is the subject of a return, credit, chargeback or similar rescinded transaction. You will not earn any Stock rewards if you do not make any qualifying debit card purchases.
Amount of Stock Rewards: Upon a qualifying debit card purchase, you will earn a fractional share of Stock. Stock reward amounts will be a dollar amount equal to 0.20% of the aggregate amount of the qualifying purchase, or, if greater, a fixed dollar amount of $0.01 per qualifying purchase.
Stash, in its sole discretion, from time to time and at any time, may choose to reward a larger fixed dollar amount or a variable dollar amount per qualifying purchase (so long as the amount rewarded equals or exceeds the amount described in the foregoing sentence).
Fulfillment of Stock Rewards: Any Stock rewards will be fulfilled as follows:
- If a qualifying transaction is made at a merchant that has publicly-traded stock available for purchase through the Stash Platform, the Stock reward arising from a qualifying transaction will be in the publicly-traded stock of the merchant.
- If a qualifying transaction is made at a subsidiary of a parent company that has publicly-traded stock available for purchase through the Stash Platform, the Stock reward arising from such qualifying transaction may, but is not required to, be in the publicly-traded stock of the parent company.
- If publicly-traded stock of the merchant (or a subsidiary thereof, if applicable) is not available or otherwise capable of being fulfilled for any reason, the Stock reward arising from a qualifying transaction will be in shares of Vanguard Total World Stock ETF (VT), an ETF available on the Stash Platform.
Please refer to the Stash Platform (www.stashinvest.com/investments) for a list of all investments that are available for purchase at any time. Stash reserves the right to change the list of Stock available on the Platform at any time and from time to time in its sole discretion.

We cannot warrant that such matching services will be error-free or that defects in the matching services will be corrected. If you believe you made a qualifying debit card purchase and were not rewarded Stock in accordance with these terms and conditions, please contact us at (800) 205-5164 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Variants: Stash may implement multiple, varying versions of the Stock rewards promotion at the same time and/or at different times. The version offered to you may be different than the version offered to another client.
Crediting of Stock Rewards to Your Stash Account: To deliver the Stock reward to your taxable brokerage account, Stash will deposit into such account the monetary amount of your reward and automatically initiate a “buy” order for Stock in the amount of the reward you have received. By choosing to participate in the promotion, you grant Stash Investments LLC the limited discretionary authority required to complete the securities transaction necessary to complete the reward. More specifically, Stash Investments LLC will have discretion over cash credited to your taxable account pursuant to the terms and conditions of this promotion only to the limited extent necessary to purchase Stock in accordance with the terms hereof. This discretionary authority is in addition to the limited discretionary authority you have already granted to Stash Investments LLC pursuant to the Advisory Agreement you agreed to in connection with your opening of your taxable account (as amended). Accordingly, your acceptance of these terms and conditions and participation in the promotion 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 participating in the promotion, you are directing Stash Investments LLC to direct, and Stash Capital LLC to execute, orders to buy the relevant securities on your behalf for the duration of your participation in this promotion. Any Stock rewarded may take up to four (4) business days to be reflected in your taxable brokerage account following the posting of a qualifying purchase. By participating in the promotion, you are making a decision to invest in the Stock that may be rewarded to you under this promotion and agree that it is your responsibility to review and carefully consider the Stocks, including the information available to you through the Stash applications and website about each of the Stocks, that may be rewarded under this promotion before choosing to participate in the promotion. Neither the promotion itself, nor the publicly-traded stocks available to be earned through it, is a recommendation to buy any such specific stock. The value of any Stock you receive will fluctuate over time due to a variety of factors.
Your taxable account must be open and in good standing at the time we initiate any credit of cash and/or the earned Stock. If the taxable account is closed or not in good standing for any reason at any such time, any Stock rewards will be forfeited. You will not be entitled to any compensation from Stash, any of Stash’s affiliates, or from any other source, if your Stock rewards are forfeited for any reason. In addition, any qualifying purchases that have not posted by the end of the promotional period, or, if earlier and if applicable, the time your revocation of your direction and consent to participate in the promotion is processed, will not earn Stock rewards.
For the avoidance of doubt, you have the ability to sell any Stock earned under the promotion after you receive it in your taxable account.
