Remember to disable the “Round Up” feature. It’s turned on by default.

Why should we disable roundup?

It defeats the purpose of getting 10 cents back per debit transaction. Plus it’s a terrible “feature” that works to the financial institutions benefit. That is unless you aren’t good at saving but that shouldn’t be a problem for any DoCer.

You will still get the 10 cents back per debit transaction, since all that really happens is you are transferring the up to $0.50 to the Save account as anything ending in .49 and below would not round up. All they really are doing in reality is want people not spending as all that will really happen is the Spend account will not have money because it keeps getting sent to the Save account. What they really should have done is all deposits goes to the Save account and similar to how Schwab has their High Yield Investing Checking accounts, the checking accounts can have a $0.00 balance and it will just automatically transfer from the brokerage account when needed without fees.

mothman69 Do paypal transactions still work for you? I tried yesterday but now rewards so far.

Takes a few days to post. Usually it pends for 1 day, posts the next day, and then the reward comes the day after the charge posts.

mothman69

Alex I haven’t done any transactions in the past two weeks so I’m not sure, but as Otto said it does take a few days for the debit transactions to post and then rewards will show up.

@Otto Do you do 15 transactions per day?

Otto
Otto

Nope. I was seeing issues around 10 as well and even less around the weekends/non business days.

mothman69 Have you ran into any issues with your PayPal transactions? I called today and it looks like they limit cash app, Venmo, and Apple Cash to four transactions a day.

mothman69

JesC No real issues, but they appear to limit PayPal transactions to 15 per day. I’ve been doing 15x $0.01 every weekday for a few weeks now and they are still paying $0.10 per transaction.

I’m starting to have issues over 10 per day now.

ieatdogfood I forgot to schedule them for this week so I can’t confirm.

7/18 Account opened
7/18 $300 transferred to save account via external bank link
8/1 $30 match bonus received

Still no $50 sign up bonus received. Seems late, right? Is chat the best way to nag them about this?

Edit: Just sent a secure message so I don’t have to sit on chat, we’ll see what happes

They gave me a manual “goodwill” credit. Their system must be buggy in giving out awards. Contact them if you don’t get your bonus and it’s past the quoted term period.

Has anyone opened multiple bloom accounts under one person?

Jimmy

It’s been 25 days since deposit and no bonus for me. No payout of any sort at all.
I deposited $300 via ACH from Chase to Bloom – Save account.
Did we need to deposit the balance to Bloom-Spend account?

Will wait another month, otherwise will just close account.

Has cash app worked for the $0.10 per swipe for anyone? My transactions posted today and don’t look like they worked.

JesC

Little bit of a delay but cash app did work and they posted

Has been a s***show for me:
8/1 open
8/2 $309 deposit to save
8/10 cannot add debit card to mobile wallet as they have someone else’s phone number associated for verification & email support says have to call tech support. Not worth it for 10 cents.
8/17 NO $50, NO $30

At least they make it easy to close debit cards & cash accounts via website

App down?

Up again.

What do you use the app for? Can’t you just use the website/regular Fidelity dot com login online?
Thanks dog food ieatdogfood
