[Rumor] Wells Fargo To Release 5 New Rewards Credit Card


Earlier this year it was rumored that Wells Fargo would be launching three new cards (two of these have already launched in the Active Cash & Reflect card). The third card was rumored to be a rewards credit card, but according to this reddit post that card is actually a suite of cards and in total five new rewards cards will be launched: Trilliant, Autograph, Amplitude, Actualize, Ratio. It looks like the first two cards will be for Private Bank or Wells Fargo Advisors members only, whereas the other cards will be open to all.

Digital Federal Credit Union (DCU) – 6.17% APY On Balances Up To $1,000 Primary Savings Account + $100 Bonus


Update 11/30/21: Referral bonus is now $100 for the person being referred and $50 for the person referring.

Offer at a glance

  • Interest Rate: 6.17%
  • Minimum Balance: $5
  • Maximum Balance: $1,000 (0.25% on balances over $1,000)
  • Availability: Nationwide (with $10 membership in Reach Out for Schools [part of application process, one time])
  • Direct deposit required: No
    • Helpful comment on setting up ACH transfers at DCU
  • Additional requirements: None
  • Hard/soft pull: Soft in my experience opening only a Primary Savings (Reports of Hard)
    • Additional DPs Hard: #1 (Later noted soft per PYT)
    • Additional DPs Soft: #1, #2, #3
  • ChexSystems: Yes (sensitive? DP-Yes, DP-No, DP-No)
  • Credit card funding: Yes $250 (additional DPs, DP) [Higher DP]
  • Monthly fees: None
  • Household Limit: None
  • Insured: NCUA

The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • The DCU Primary Savings Account offers 6.17% APY on balances up to $1,000

The Fine Print

  • Requires a $5.00 minimum balance to open the account and remain on deposit to maintain membership status.
  • Rates are variable and may change after the account is opened and are subject to change weekly. Fees may reduce earning on the account.
  • One Primary Savings account per person, additional memberships receive one savings account.
  • Interest income is taxable

Avoiding Fees

  • The account has no monthly fee

Our Verdict

Chuck has long had the DCU Primary Savings Account on his list of Best High Yield Savings Accounts, but I figured it should have its own dedicated post [despite its limited first year value of $61.70 in interest (given the small $1,000 maximum investment)].

Though missing a signup bonus, in my mind the primary savings account still offers good value.  Assuming the above market rate holds into the future, it’s sort of a passive bonus – after the initial setup investment the account will continue to earn without additional churning effort.

The cost is managing another account, but with my spreadsheets and process already in place that marginal cost is pretty low for me.  I never closed my Netspend accounts when the maximum investment fell to $1,000; I’m happy to leave them running on auto pilot with scheduled ACHs.

Also each person is eligible for their own primary savings account so this might be beneficial if you have for instance multiple family members in the same household:

  • Those 18+ can apply online
  • Those under 18 (kids) can still apply with a paper application
  • All immediate family members after the first can qualify for membership based on the family member relationship (no additional participating organization membership/fee required)

I received no hard credit pull on a recent application (checked credit karma) to only open a primary savings account and was also able to place a $250 deposit on my citi double cash card (posted as a purchase).

All the Best!

[Below is a guest post from Evan Mullen. You can see his prior posts here.]

Oxygen Bank is a fee-free digital checking account marketed toward ‘free thinkers, rebels and entrepreneurs.’  The main feature that entices me is the cashback offers on debit purchases. There’s also a $25 referral bonus.

Overview

Here are the major highlights of the account:

  • Mobile only
  • No fees
  • FDIC Insured up to $250,000
  • Connect external accounts via Plaid
  • Multiple virtual cards
  • Map of free ATMs nearby
  • Flat fee line of credit
  • Support for personal and business accounts
  • Debit card with cashback boosts (see below)

Cashback Boosts

The cashback boosts seem similar to Cash App, in that they will be rotating.  This is what I’m currently seeing for my offers:

  • Walmart – 7%, valid for 60 days, unlimited uses until you hit $10 in cashback (12 hour cooldown, minimum $5 purchase)
  • Trader Joe’s – 7%, valid for 90 days, unlimited uses until you hit $7 in cashback (4 hour cooldown, minimum $3 purchase)
  • Rideshare and Transportation – 5%, valid for 30 days, unlimited uses until you hit $10 in cashback (2 hour cooldown, minimum $4 purchase)
  • Pharmacies – 5%, valid for 90 days, unlimited uses until you hit $5 in cashback (2 hour cooldown, minimum $2 purchase)
  • Gas – 5%, valid for 30 days, unlimited uses until you hit $10 in cashback (24 hour cooldown, minimum $5 purchase)
  • Gaming – 5%, valid for 90 days, unlimited uses until you hit $5 in cashback (2 hour cooldown, minimum $2 purchase)
  • Food Delivery – 5%, valid for 90 days, unlimited uses until you hit $5 in cashback (2 hour cooldown, minimum $2 purchase)
  • Food and Coffee – $1, valid for 90 days, unlimited uses until you hit $10 in cashback (2 hour cooldown, minimum $2 purchase)

These offers will likely change over time. Hopefully Oxygen can continue to offer useful merchants.  Currently, the minimum cashback redemption is $10.

One benefit to Oxygen over Cash App is that Oxygen is an actual bank account, and therefore can be linked to cashback apps.  Pei and Bumped have support for Oxygen, while Drop and Bits of Stock do not.

One negative to Oxygen compared to Cash App is that you have to fund the account via ACH instead of an instant debit.  Therefore you have to plan more in advance if you don’t want a lot of funds sitting in Oxygen, which earns no interest.  However, the interest you lose from letting a few hundred sit in Oxygen for even up to a year doesn’t come close to the cashback you’ll earn from spending this balance at boosted merchants.  You can, however, fund your account with cash ‘at 90,000+ stores, including CVS and Walgreens’, which will ‘be available within a few hours’ (retail service fee applies).

For the flat cashback category ($1 back for Food and Coffee), you’ll earn more back by using Oxygen for purchases under $50 if your alternative cashback earns 2% ($1/0.02 = $50).

Referrals

  • There is also currently a referral program where the referrer earns $25 for every person who funds their account with at least $200 and uses the Oxygen debit card 5 times within 60 days. 
  • New member also gets $25 when they open the card using a referral link and fund their account with $200 and use the Oxygen debit card 5 times within 60 days.
  • Referral bonus posts within 10 business days of qualifying.
  • Your referral link can be found in the app.
  • Please do not leave referrals in the comments; Oxygen stipulates that referrals are restricted to personal friends, family, and known acquaintances. Network with friends to get/give referrals.

Our Verdict

Lots of banks are digital and fee-free these days, so for me, the only worthwhile feature is the high cash back rate at some of the boosted merchants.  I’ll surely be using my card at Walmart, Trader Joe’s (when the Cash App 10% grocery boost is no longer offered for Trader Joe’s), and dining.  It’s also nice that you can double dip with cashback apps.

Swagbucks: Get $40+ Instantly With Solitaire Cube or Blackout Bingo ($2 Cost)


Update 11/30/21: back again. Hat tip to blue9

Update 3/5/21: The Solitaire Cube offer is still around at 4,000 SB ($40); MyPoints now has this for slightly more at 7,000 points (~$44). Also, there’s a new offer for Blackout Bingo for 4,000 SB ($40) which can be done as an alternative to Solitaire Cube (you can only do one of the two offers, but it’s another option).

Update 11/13/20: Offer is back. Hopefully the $2 deposit option is still showing up. (ht reader Gadget)

Update: 4,000 offer is expired – it’s now showing 1,780. Also, some were not finding the option to deposit just $2, and are saying there’s a minimum $10 to deposit. Others were able to deposit just $2.

The Offer

Direct Link to offer | Another link

  • Swagbucks is offering 4,000 Swagbucks ($40) instantly when you play one paid game with Solitaire Cube.

The Fine Print

  • Must use your deposit on a paid game to earn SB.
  • Must be your 1st time playing a paid game via Skillz.
  • 4,000 SB will award instantly.
  • This must be your first time playing any paid game, across all Skillz titles (Solitaire Cube, Cube Cube, Strike! Bowling, 21 Blitz, Blackout Bingo, Bubble Shooter), to earn SB.
  • Cash tournaments are not yet enabled in certain countries, as well as the following states: AZ, AR, CT, DE, LA, MT, SC, SD, and TN. Additionally, cash gameplay is currently not available in ME and IN if playing cards are involved.

Our Verdict

Sounds like a sweet $38 moneymaker with little risk since you can deposit just $2 and play a game. Swagbucks are supposed to be instant, though some mention it takes 2-12 hours to post.

There’s also some sort of tournament which Swagbucks is running with Solitaire Club. I’m fuzzy on the details – you can read more here, let us know if it’s interesting.

If you’re new to Swagbucks then please read our review. You can get a bonus of up to $13 by using a referral link.

Deal Calendar (Full List Of Deals, Credit Card & Bank Bonuses + Their Expiry Dates)


It can be difficult to keep track of all the deals we post and I know a lot of readers get angry at themselves when they miss a deal. I have a calendar set up reminding me when deals are set to expire and thought having something publicly facing would be useful. This should give you a quick glance of offers that are available and when they expire. I’ll still be posting reminders of the more important deals, but I’d recommend bookmarking this post and checking on a frequent basis. Keep in mind I don’t have all (or even most) of the deals loaded into this new system yet but will add them over time. I’ve added all the best bank account bonuses plus all posts we’ve made in the last four weeks. I’ll continue to add to this over time. If a deal dies earlier than expected then please let us know in the comments of that post so I can update that post and this page. I’ve also added this to the top menu under the daily deals page.

Final Thoughts

Hopefully readers find this page useful, it’s nice to have a quick overview of what you need to look into immediately and catch any posts you may have missed (at least that’s the hope). As always it’s really helpful when readers let us know a deal has died or expired (especially when it dies/expires early) then we can update the posts title and also reflect it on this page. As always if you do like this page, share and link to it!

Update 11/30/21: Deal is back, purchases must be made by 12/16/21

Target offers these deals on a semi regular basis, in the past the reward hasn’t been as big but required fewer purchases and lower dollar amount. Some people still have those lower tiers.
