How to become a premium member? New customer here – I am planning to join for the first time. Thanks!

ShawntheShawn

During account opening, you will be asked to select your account plan (the paid premium plan or the free basic plan). Jack Tauson

I see. Thanks for the info. @ShawntheShawn

All 3 Mr. Beast codes are still active even though the promotional page on one of them said it ended on 12/26. The $1 credits appeared one hour after I entered the codes in my iOS app as an existing user. Also, I am not a premium member, I am just a free basic account member. Only one of the codes generated a confirmation email. P2 and P3 also did this, so $9 free for us total. My debit card with them is not activated, though I did confirm my email address.

The Mr. Beast codes also give you Premium for free for life. Did you not even try to upgrade to Premium to get that?

Michael

I am not a new user, so I would not have received that benefit. Also, I am not interested in the premium service. For someone who was a new user interested in the service, it definitely will benefit them to upgrade to premium before entering the codes to receive a chance for the free lifetime membership.

Bonehead here. Did everything correctly but error’d on my email address, missed a number. Despite correcting it and asking to resend verification, I’ve never received an email. I also haven’t been asked to create a password, which seems very odd. Did I fk this one up? Should I just call it quits and close it?

Celia

No passwords. Phone and SMS.

I added Premium to my account about 45 minutes ago. I then added the 3 Beast codes shortly thereafter. I received the $3 from the codes but DID NOT receive Premium for life. So it appears that this is only for new customers unfortunately. I added my 2 additional Savings Pods to at least get some benefit out of it. I will update if it changed to Premium for life (however unlikely) when I check later.

Fresh DP for the peoples. Unsure if the order of any of this matters but more info is better right?
Signed up via SBucks (via Texted link to Android)
Signed up for Premium (Didn’t set up Direct Deposit since employer isn’t on list, though did export form to myself)
When first prompted for code – WELCOME50
Verified email
After exiting set up, went to add the following codes, maybe 1 min delay between entering each of them in this order:
BEASTHUNT, BEASTBANK, BEAST.
(Premium still reflects $4.99 at this point)
5 minutes later – $1 x 3 received.
30 minutes later – In app banner saying Mr. Beast just gave you Premium for FREE! FOR LIFE! (no email yet though)

Still need to do a $200 DD

Got premium for free for life 30 min after approval!

I did just about the same. Got the banner in app a few hours after applying. Also got an email the next day stating the same and asking me to do a DD for a chance to win $500 form Mr Beast. Pushed $205 from CS, hope that counts.

DW

Followed what you said, applied all the promo codes for P1 and P2 accounts, got the $1 x 3 and the Free Premium for Life for both of us. This is a very easy way to get 4% APY on $12,000. Thank you!!

Did anybody close their acct after receiving SB and was their EATF?

I am trying to go through the posts to figure out how to sign up and maximize my earnings, especially with these newer codes but would appreciate any help. Thanks

Eric

I think the best way is to sign up for Premium through Sb/MP and then add the $50 code. Once that is applied, add the 3 Beast codes mentioned in this post and hope for Premium for life like idk and 007 received.

Worked for me. Thanks!

Thanks! Signed up for Premium through SB and used the $50 code. Then added the 3 Beast codes for $3 and also got Premium for life from Mr Beast a few hours later.

anyone able to churn the Current account? I closed mine a few months ago.. was thinking to open a new one for the 4% interest.. but wondering if getting a second bonus is possible.. I’m also happy to be a datapoint

Any problems with this bank if P1 does employer DD into P2 account? (Like the problems with Spiral?)

idk

Used code “BeastHunt” (found on Current’s Instagram), and I got $1 and Premium “free for life”!!

https://i.imgur.com/LFMkFlj.jpg

Interesting because this wasn’t advertised in the Instagram post. It showed up in the app about 2 hours after applying.

Eric

Were you subscribed to Premium before you applied the code?

idk
idk

Yes, I created an account and signed up for premium maybe 30 min before

Eric

See if the app lets you add code WELCOME50 also for another $50.

idk
idk

Yes, I did welcome 50 first.

Eric

Did the $1 post immediately and the free Premium for life post 2 hours later?

idk
idk

$1 posted after maybe 10 min, premium for life showed up 2 hours later.

In the app settings, under “Account Management” I see this: https://i.imgur.com/8HpS8xh.jpg

Davis

I only got $1, no premium

Eric

I was thinking that we need to be on Premium before applying the code to have a chance for the free Premium for life. I didn’t want to do it in case it didn’t work (like what happened to you). Any brave souls?

Davis

Paying for premium and then being given premium for life is only beneficial (for me) in the second year. That’s a while for the 4% rate to stay and nothing else to beat it.

Eric

How do you figure? The way I described it we would only be paying $4.95 for 1 month and then get Premium for life after that.

Davis

I messaged support to see if I could get premium for life with the promo code. They didnt know what was going on. Mr beast (whoever that is) is doing some promotion with current

Eric

You must have signed up over 2 hours ago. Any sign of the offer that idk received?

Eric

How long ago did you apply the code? idk said that the message appeared 2 hours later.

Davis

A few minutes after he posted it. I got the $1 a few minutes after that

Eric

Wait 2 hours and maybe you will get the same message that idk got. I’ll wait for your update before deciding if I’ll apply the code.

Davis

Nothing more. I’ll let you know if anything pops up

Davis

Eric ShawntheShawn i’ll be the guinea pig. I signed up for premium after entering the codes. nothing so far, i will be billed in february.

Davis

Nothing so far. I did find another code BEAST that gave me another buck but no premium for life (yet). I checked my Drop account and a click that I did on 21/12/18 is now pending for 7K points, despite already being a Current member. I clicked the offers on MyPoints, Swagbucks (even though I did that a year ago), Ysense, and Rakuten to see if those will credit.

Eric

Davis ShawntheShawn

Any update from either of you? I still haven’t added any of the codes yet or re-added Premium.

Davis

Still no premium for life and am not counting on it anymore. I think if you are an existing current member, your best bet is to click on all the cashback links for current, activate premium, use the three beast codes, attempt to get lucky on getting premium for life or cashback, fill up your 3 saving pods for a month with a transfer from another bank that counts as a direct deposit

Eric

Did any other CB post for you besides Drop? Did you add the other 2 Pods right away?

Davis

No, I only clicked on Drop before activating premium. All others were after and my ACH push that characterized as a direct deposit didn’t trigger any other ones.

ShawntheShawn

Eric Still nothing. I plan to downgrade again before they charge me, so I will not open the 2 additional savings pods to avoid the hassle. But I do not think closing the 2 additional savings pod is the same as closing the Savings account. You still have the Savings account with 1 savings pod.

Eric

I’l have to find that other comment that had the link showing the terms so I can try to clarify.

ShawntheShawn

Thank you. I joined you and nothing so far.

Eric

Did you open up 2 additional Current Savings Pods? I saw someone else mention that there is a penalty if the Savings account is closed within 6 months.

I’m wondering what would happen if I upgrade to Premium this month, open 2 more Pods and then downgrade back to Regular next month (if the Premium for life doesn’t work on my account). Any ideas?

Davis

Ya I have the additional pods. Doubt the additional savings pods would count as separate savings accounts. I’m billed at the end of the first month so maybe I can squeeze almost two months out of 1 month of premium.

ShawntheShawn

Here: https://current.com/beasthunt/?utm_source=inf&utm_campaign=beasthunt

It mentions nothing about free premium for life. Maybe idk was just lucky? Davis Eric

Eric

idk said that they saw the offer on Instagram and that there was no mention of that. Maybe MrBeast is paying for “Premium for life” for random people. Who knows? That’s good to know it’s only the 1st 100K people that get it so it’s not really worth waiting. Are you going to enter the code without upgrading to Premium 1st?

ShawntheShawn

Already did and got $1 from MrBeast. Got another $1 from MrBeast using a second code BEASTBANK. Eric idk Davis

Eric

You might us well do a DD for a chance at $500 based on this link. I’m conflicted of whether or not I should take the risk and add Premium before adding the codes.

I signed up for a new premium account, used the Sawbucks and Welcome50. After about 20 minutes added the Beasthunt code and while I didn’t get any notice of premium being free, it shows 0$ under account management now.

Eric

After 2 hours did you get the same message that idk received regarding “Premium for Life”?

idk
idk

I searched around more and I don’t see anything mentioning free for life, but it is definitely on my account. Perhaps I was just lucky if others aren’t able do get the same.

I found another $1 code: “BeastBank”. It applied in addition to “BeastHunt”. Only other code I found was “Hailey”, but that one is just “chance to win”.

Note that premium is not (/no longer?) required for the 4% rate. Per today’s techcrunch article:

> The Interest offering will be made available to all Current users, including those on Current’s free Basic plan
https://techcrunch.com/2022/01/13/u-s-fintech-current-introduces-high-yield-savings-where-customers-earn-a-4-00-apy/

Also: Mr Beast is the #5 top YouTuber (popular with teens/kids). He’s known for massive giveaways.

Steven
Steven

I guess I got lucky also. I got the free premium account from entering MrBeast code also.

Eric

Were you already on Premium from a newly opened account like idk and daimyoaz@gmail.com or did you re-add Premium before adding the code?

007
007

P2 also got free premium for life from mr beast. Maybe only new accounts?

Eric

It’s not clear. I haven’t noticed anyone mentioning upgrading to Premium BEFORE adding the codes so it could very well be that anyone on Premium before adding the codes gets Premium for life. What do you think?

007
007

Yes, very possible. I don’t know unfortunately

Eric

Steven

I’m tagging you here in case you missed my reply to you.

Eric

Premium is required to be eligible for 3 of the Pods, rather than 1.

007
007

So I just signed up through SwagBucks and followed same protocol. No specific message but now under Account Management it says Premium and cost is listed as Free. Before it said $4.99 per month so this is definitely something that has changed.

UPDATE: So I finally got a notification it was Mr Beast who gave me Premium free for life!

007
007

Also, received email notification (delayed by a day) that confirms Mr Beast gave me premium for life. Assume P2 will get the same email sometime later.

Eric

That explains why this question is on the site I linked to.

“Are teens able to enter the giveaway?”

idk
idk

Update: received this email today (almost exactly 24hr from applying the code BEASTHUNT). Still doesn’t make it clear whether _anyone_ entering the Mr. Beast code gets premium for life or if I “won” it.

I created a basic account and then two hours later I was notified in the app that I got the Premium Account for free. I am not an existing user, just created an account on Current in the morning.

ShawntheShawn

Feels like this is only for new accounts, regardless of your account plan. Eric Davis
