- $25 for $1,000-$2,499

The Fine Print
Your cash reward will be based on your net deposits. Net deposits are the total amount of all initiated deposits from March 15–March 28, 2021 minus canceled deposits or withdrawals from March 15–April 4, 2021. Simply: it’s the money you put in minus the money you take out through the above dates.
Corresponding cash rewards will be automatically deposited from April 5-April 9, 2021.
- The funds you receive through the deposit match program will be reported as miscellaneous income in your 1099-MISC form. Because of IRS minimum earnings requirements, you may not receive a 1099-MISC form if your deposit-matched funds and any other funds (i.e. stock reward funds) are valued at less than $600.
This is a nice bonus for a $15,000 deposit, and the funds just need to remain there for a few weeks. Check your email to see if you were targeted, not sure if this is being sent out widely or with more selective criteria.
