Thank you, Stashers!

As the holidays approach, and the new year and a new decade, I want to take a moment to thank you for being a Stasher.

Today, I am proud to share that over 4 million Americans now call Stash their financial home. Incredibly, it’s been four years since Ed and I quit our jobs on Wall Street to start Stash, and we’re thrilled that so many people use Stash to take control of their money and make real financial progress. You are investing, saving for retirement, investing for your kids, and now making Stash your primary banking account1 to get paid early2, save money, spend smarter, and become an investor as you live your life with Stock-Back® rewards.

We are delighted so many of you are now using Stash for your primary banking experience.  And as part of our objective to give you every financial benefit we can, we are rewarding our customers with $503 when they move their paychecks (minimum deposit of $300.00) to Stash.  Plus, this month banking with us also can earn you 3x Stock-Back.

Did we mention the power of Stock-Back®? The Stash community has received 5.7 million rewards as of December 16, 2019, just for using their Stash debit cards. We launched Stock-Back because we believe everyone should have the option to earn rewards without the expensive risk of credit card debt. We hope these more than 5 million little pieces of stock will continue to inspire you to learn more about the companies where you spend money, and the world economy we all fuel through our everyday purchases.

Stock-Back works seamlessly with your Stash Debit card. Spend at Walmart, you’ll earn WMT. Fly on JetBlue, you’ll get JBLU. Pay your Verizon bill, you’ll earn VZ. Get a car wash, a haircut, or a soda from the vending machine, you’ll earn Stock-Back in the Stocks Worldwide ETF, or a stock of your choice.

Our goal has always been to build our customers’ vision—a simple, transparent, and affordable financial home for investing, banking, saving, and learning.  Thank you for helping us make that vision a reality, and thank you for the opportunity to be on this journey with you.

We’re just getting started, and we are never satisfied with the status quo. As always, if you have feedback or ideas, please email ideas@stashinvest.com—we read every single message. And we promise to continue prioritizing your voice and the needs of the Stash community because putting our customers first is what financial companies are supposed to do.
