Stash Debit: Banking For Investors

August 26, 2019

3 min read

At Stash, we want to be on a life-long financial journey with you.

We started out letting you invest in exchange-traded funds for just $5. And we recently opened up our platform to single stocks, allowing you to invest in a range of blue chip and other U.S. companies.

Over the years, we’ve grown and so have you. And as we’ve grown together, we’ve listened carefully to what you have to say. We know that you want a place to keep your money, and to use it the way you want to use it.

That’s why we’re excited to tell you about the Stash debit account.

We think you’re going to like it, because it can help give you more financial freedom.

What is it?

Stash debit is a bank account, issued by Green Dot Bank, Member FDIC, designed especially for our investors. It won’t cost you anything to set up, there are no minimum balance requirements, and we won’t charge you any monthly or annual fees to maintain the account1.

Best of all, we won’t charge you overdraft fees1. We think this last part is really important, because it sets us apart from traditional banks, which can charge $30 or more if you overdraw your account.

The Stash debit card gives you access to thousands of fee-free ATMs around the U.S.You can deposit cash to your account through your linked bank account, via direct deposit, or at participating CVS Phamacy®, Rite Aid and Walgreen stores3.

The extras!

More about Stash Debit

The Stash debit card is not a prepaid card or credit card. It’s a debit card you can use to make purchases in stores, online, or wherever Visa is accepted in the U.S.

There are a number of potential bank partners out there for companies like Stash, so we canvassed the universe and selected Green Dot Bank because of their technology, people, and values. They are the partner for many tech-forward companies.

Stash wants to help you get smart about your money. And we hope Stash debit will be another tool to help you make smart financial decisions.

Anyone with a Stash Invest account can sign up for a debit account8.

If you aren’t a Stash investor already, you will need to download the app and register for a Stash Invest account. Then you will need to apply for a Stash Debit Account. Account Opening for Banking is subject to Green Dot Bank’s approval.
