Aspiration is a financial institution that supports charitable causes and regular people, rather than lobbyists and big corporations. It donates 10% of all its earnings to nonprofit organizations and makes it easy for you to support the things that you care about.

With a Spend & Save account from Aspiration, you can feel good about where your money goes –– and also earn up to 10% cash back when you spend.

Support worthy causes while you earn

As an added perk, you’ll get your own Aspiration debit card that will earn you cash back every time you shop at select stores, including Walmart, Target, and CVS.

Plus, Aspiration gives you the option to round up the purchases you make on your card to the nearest dollar, and they’ll use the spare change to plant a tree.

That’s right -- every time you shop, you’ll be planting a tree.

You’ll also earn up to 1.00% APY on any money that you set aside for the future, which is 14 times higher than the average savings account according to the FDIC.

All you need to do is add $10 to your account by May 15, 2020, and then spend $1,000 with your Aspiration card by July 15, 2020.

Your regular expenses like groceries and utilities will easily cover $1,000, so you won’t need to spend any more than you normally do. Your $100 will be automatically added to your account by July 31, 2020.
