Don’t fall for it.

Here’s how to pocket $100 just by opening a free Aspiration Spend & Save account.

This is how to get $100 for opening a free account

Aspiration’s Spend & Save account comes with great perks, like the Aspiration Impact Management (AIM) score that helps you track your impact on the planet.

You can earn up to 1.00% annual percentage yield (APY) on your savings, get cash back every time you use your debit card at stores like Walmart and Target, and enjoy fee-free withdrawals at over 55,000 Allpoint network ATMs. That’s over 3 times as many ATMs as those owned by Chase, Bank of America and Wells Fargo combined.*

And you won’t ever need to worry about getting dinged by service fees. In fact, Aspiration uses a pay-what-is-fair model, so you can choose to tip them anything from $20 a month down to $0 — it’s your call.

All you need to do connect a bank account and deposit at least $10 into your Aspiration account and then make at least $1,000 worth of transactions with your Aspiration debit card within 60 days.

Your normal purchases like groceries and utilities should cover it no problem, so you won’t need to spend any more than you usually do.

That’s it. Your bonus will be deposited in your account within 120 days, and you’ll be $100 richer.

So sign up for a Spend & Save account today, your free money is waiting.
