Stock-Back® Starter Bonus Program
Terms and Conditions
Updated as of April 1, 2020
Effective 9:00 AM (ET) March 23, 2020 (the “Effective Date”) for Stock-Back® participants who receive an invitation directly from Stash to participate in the program described herein
The Stock-Back® Starter Bonus 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 issued by Green Dot Bank, Member FDIC. The Program enables Eligible Participants (as defined below) to earn a Stock-Back® Starter Bonus (as defined below), subject to the terms and conditions stated herein (the “Stock-Back® Starter Bonus Program Terms”). All references to the “Stash Debit card” or “debit card” hereunder refers to a virtual or permanent Stash Debit card issued by Green Dot Bank, Member FDIC.
By choosing to participate in this Program, you are accepting and agreeing to these Stock-Back® Starter Bonus Program Terms. These Stock-Back® Starter Bonus Program Terms form an agreement between you and Stash with respect to the Program. You should read these Stock-Back® Starter Bonus Program Terms carefully.
To be eligible to receive an invitation directly 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) open a Stash Invest account and a Stash banking account, both of which must be and remain in good standing (as further described below), and (ii) enroll 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. Further, once you receive an offer to participate in this Program, you must link a funding account (e.g. a bank account) to your Stash banking account and initiate a deposit of funds into your Stash banking account no later than May 31, 2020 in order to participate in this Program.
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 and/or Green Dot Bank reserve the right to determine in our 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 your Stock-Back® Starter Bonus will be forfeited. 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 Purchases” means an Eligible Participant’s first ten (10) qualifying debit card purchases (as described in the Stock-Back® Program Terms) made using their Stash Debit card that each post to their Stash banking account following such Eligible Participant’s Activation Time (as defined below). If an Eligible Participant makes all of their Qualifying Purchases within fourteen (14) calendar days following such Eligible Participant’s Activation Time (the “Rewards Period”), then such Eligible Participant may earn their Stock-Back® Starter Bonus as further described below.
Your “Activation Time” is the exact date that you have activated your First Stash Debit Card. A “First Stash Debit Card” is the first Stash Debit card you received from Stash following the date you successfully opened your Stash banking account. For the avoidance of doubt, your First Stash Debit Card does not include any replacement Stash Debit card(s).
We reserve the right to determine in our sole discretion whether a particular transaction constitutes a Qualifying Purchase hereunder. We also reserve the right in our sole discretion to reverse the credit of any Stock-Back® Starter Bonus in the event an Eligible Participant’s Qualifying Purchases are the subject of a return, credit, chargeback or similar rescinded transaction. Eligible Participants will not earn a Stock-Back® Starter Bonus hereunder if they do not make all of their Qualifying Purchases during their respective Rewards Period.
This Program is supplemental to the Stock-BackTM Rewards Bonus Terms and Conditions that can be found here: https://lp.stashinvest.com/stock-back-bonus-promo-terms-and-conditions/. Any qualifying debit purchases (as described in the Stock-Back® Program Terms) made by an Eligible Participant for the merchants specified in the Stock-BackTM Rewards Bonus Terms and Conditions during such Eligible Participant’s Rewards Period will qualify as Qualifying Purchases for purposes of this Program. Therefore, Eligible Participants may receive rewards under the Stock-BackTM Rewards Bonus Terms and Conditions in addition to their Stock-Back™ Starter Bonus hereunder. Further, Stash may implement multiple, varying versions of its Stock-Back® Rewards program and/or promotions related to its Stock-Back® Rewards program as of or after the Effective Date (each, an “Additional Stock-Back® Rewards Program”). Accordingly, any rewards prescribed under each Additional Stock-Back® Rewards Program are expressly exempt for purposes of this Program.
Stock-Back® Starter Bonus
Subject to these Stock-Back® Starter Bonus Program Terms and only once following the Effective Date, once an Eligible Participant makes all of their Qualifying Purchases during their respective Rewards Period, such Eligible Participant will earn their Stock-Back® Starter Bonus. A “Stock-Back® Starter Bonus” is ten (10) one-dollar ($1.00) fractional shares of Stock (as such term is defined in the Stock-Back® Program Terms) attributable to the first ten (10) merchants where a qualifying debit card purchase (as described in the Stock-Back® Program Terms) was authorized by an Eligible Participant and a hold was placed on their Stash Debit card for the purchase amount during their respective Rewards Period.
Each Stock-Back® Starter Bonus will be limited to a maximum cash value of $10.00, which shall be calculated by Stash in its sole discretion. Each Stock-Back® Starter Bonus hereunder will be fulfilled and credited in the manner noted in the Stock-Back® Program Terms.
Each Stock-Back® Starter Bonus is in addition to an Eligible Participant’s base reward that they receive under the Stock-Back® Program Terms for each qualifying debit card purchase (as described in the Stock-Back® Program Terms). Each Eligible Participant is only eligible to receive one (1) Stock-Back® Starter Bonus under these Stock-Back® Starter Bonus Program Terms.
