There is nothing better than free money, just yesterday I got $30.00 deposited into my RushCard account for signing up using a friend’s referral code. You can still do this too if you haven’t created a RushCard account yet. RushCard is a pre-paid Visa card that I’ll be using for many future purchases on this website. It has kind of crappy fees but it’s very useful for signing up for paid subscription services you don’t fully trust yet to not charge you more than they promised. Beyond keeping your real credit cards secure, you get $30 for signing up! And you can get another $10 for a limited time check deposit promotion as well. Once you get your card you need to deposit at least $50 to get your credit. Let’s dig into how to get this free money. This is for new users only, if you have a RushCard this will not work for you.
Time Warning: This freebie will take at least two weeks from now until you get the $30 deposited into your account.
Rushcard was also recently acquired so this program may change.
How to get free cash money:
- Go here to start signing up for an account here.
- Pick “Pay As You Go” and choose your card design (avoid the Sequin KLS RushCard because it costs more to activate).
- Use JOHNCLARK19 your referral code (or a friend’s code) to activate the $30 sign up bonus. If you don’t enter a code, you don’t get the $30 bonus so be sure to enter the code JOHNCLARK19.
- Finish signing up for your account with accurate personal information. They won’t do a credit check, but they do want to know that you are a real human so they ask for your social security number.
- Wait 5-7 business days for your card to come in the mail and activate it using the iOS app, Android app, phone or online.
- The final step to getting $30 is depositing at least $50 for the one-time activation fee. I used PayPal by linking the RushCard as a bank account and transferring money from there. You can also use a check or other methods. This took me a few days because I had to verify with PayPal by getting two deposit amounts under $1.00 each. The 2018 terms for this may have changed, please read the bonus terms just in case.
- Once you deposit the $50 and it hits your account, the $30 will usually appear within 48 hours. It can take up to 30 days though, mine took 2 days though.
- Optional: You can get another $10 for depositing a check via the mobile app using promotion code RUSHGET10 (more information here).
- When you finally have your free money sitting in your RushCard balance, you can use it for normal purchases for $1 per transaction or use a qualified MoneyPass ATM to get it without any fees. Enjoy the free money!
- Optional: You can also get $30 for each friend who signs up by referring your friends after you sign up! Once you are logged in it’s under Rushcard Rewards > Refer-a-friend to get your own shareable code.
