Stock-Back® Community Rewards Program
Terms and Conditions
Effective October 5, 2020 for Stock-Back® participants who receive an invitation from Stash to participate in the program described herein
The Stock-Back® Community Rewards 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 banking 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. All references to the “Stash Debit card” or “debit card” hereunder refer to a permanent or virtual Stash Debit card issued by Green Dot Bank, Member FDIC.
Upon making each Qualifying Transaction between 8:00 AM (ET) on October 5, 2020 and 8:00 AM (ET) on October 12, 2020 (the “Program Period”), you will be eligible to claim one (1) Stock-Back® Community Bonus Reward, as further described below.
This 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.
To be eligible to participate in this Program, you must: (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) have linked a funding account (e.g. an external bank account) to your Stash Banking account, and (iv) have activated your Stash Debit card in accordance with Stash and/or Green Dot Bank’s policies. If you satisfy the conditions in the previous sentence during the Program Period, you will be deemed an “Eligible Participant” hereunder.
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 Stash Invest account is closed or not in good standing for any reason at any time, you will no longer be able to participate in this Program and you will forfeit any Stock-Back® Community Bonus Rewards received hereunder. A Stash Invest account is a taxable brokerage account advised by Stash Investments LLC.
A Stash Banking account opened hereunder is also subject to approval by Green Dot Bank, Member FDIC. You must pass Green Dot Bank’s customer identification procedures and otherwise be approved by Green Dot Bank for a Stash Banking account, and you must agree to electronic delivery of disclosures, Green Dot Bank’s deposit account agreement, and any other account documentation required for opening in order to open a Stash Banking account. There is no guarantee that you will be approved to open a Stash Banking account.
The term “Qualifying Transaction” shall mean all qualifying debit card purchases as described in the Stock-Back® Program Terms that are authorized by an Eligible Participant and a hold was placed on such Eligible Participant’s Stash Debit card for the purchase amount during the Program Period. Upon each Qualifying Transaction made by you during the Program Period, you will be eligible to claim one (1) Stock-Back® Community Bonus Reward, as further described below.
Further and for the avoidance of doubt, the following transactions are not Qualifying Transactions 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) where the funding source is a Stash Banking account or the Stash Debit card.
In addition, transactions deemed by Stash in its sole discretion to have been manufactured spend will not constitute a Qualifying Transaction. Stash also reserves the right to reverse the credit of any prize hereunder in the event the Qualifying Transaction giving rise to the prize is the subject of a return, credit, chargeback or similar rescinded transaction. Stash in its sole discretion will determine whether a particular transaction is a Qualifying Transaction hereunder. You will not earn any Stock-Back® Community Bonus Rewards if you do not make any Qualifying Transactions during the Program Period.
Amount of Stock-Back® Community Bonus Rewards
The total number of Qualifying Transactions collectively made by all Eligible Participants during the Program Period will determine the amount of each Stock-Back® Community Bonus Reward, provided, however, that each Eligible Participant’s first Qualifying Transaction made during the Program Period will count as five (5) Qualifying Transactions for purposes of calculating the total number of Qualifying Transactions collectively made by all Eligible Participants during the Program Period. Subject to the terms and conditions stated herein, the following chart identifies the total amount of Qualifying Transactions that all Eligible Participants need to collectively make during the Program Period in order to determine the Stock-Back® reward bonus multiplier attributable to each Qualifying Transaction (each, a “Stock-Back® Community Bonus Reward”):
|Amount of Qualifying Transactions Made During The Program Period by all Eligible Participants||Stock-Back® Community Bonus Reward multiplier attributable to each subsequent Qualifying Transaction|
|Between 1 – 549,999 Qualifying Transactions||1x
(i.e., no additional reward beyond your base reward)
|Between 550,000 – 774,999 Qualifying Transactions||1.5x|
|Between 775,000 – 874,999 Qualifying Transactions||2x|
|Between 875,000+ Qualifying Transactions||5x|
For example, once all Eligible Participants collectively make their 550,000th Qualifying Transaction during the Program Period, the multiplier attributable to that and each subsequent Qualifying Transaction made by an Eligible Participant will increase from 1x to 1.5x until all Eligible Participants collectively have made their 774,999th Qualifying Transaction. Further, once all Eligible Participants collectively make their 775,000th Qualifying Transaction during the Program Period, the multiplier attributable to that and each subsequent Qualifying Transaction made by an Eligible Participant will increase from 1.5x to 2x until all Eligible Participants collectively have made their 874,999 Qualifying Transaction, and so forth.
Each Stock-Back® Community Bonus Reward will be a dollar amount equal to that Eligible Participant’s base reward, as noted in the Stock-Back® Program Terms and attributable to such Eligible Participant’s Stash platform tier (as applicable), multiplied by the reward amount multiplier noted above. The total Stock-Back® Community Bonus Reward is inclusive of your base reward. You are only eligible to receive one (1) Stock-Back® Community Bonus Reward upon each Qualifying Transaction made by you during the Program Period. Each Stock-Back® Community Bonus Reward will also be limited to a maximum cash value of $25.00, which shall be calculated by Stash in its sole discretion.
Stock-Back® Bonus Level Rewards hereunder will be fulfilled and credited in the manner noted in the Stock-Back® Program Terms.
