[EXPIRED] Free $10 Amazon Gift Card with Personal Capital

The Offer

Personal Capital is a financial aggregation site, similar to Mint, which allows you to manage all your financial accounts in one place.

Over the holiday season, Personal Finance ran a promo where you could get a $10 Amazon gift card (a lucky few even got $20) by simply signing up with Personal Finance and adding one financial account. That offer is no longer around.

Personal Capital currently has a similar $10 Amazon gift card offer through the refer-a-friend program. The referrer and the referee will each get a $10 Amazon gift card for a new signup. Many of you may have gotten in on the past offer and won’t be eligible for this one, but if you didn’t get in on the last one, you can signup now and get the $10 bonus.

Here is my referral link: REFERRAL LINK. If you use this link to sign up with Personal Capital and you add one financial account (bank account, not credit card – see Fine Print below), you and I will each  get a $10 Amazon gift card. If you click the referral link, you’ll see the $10 offer showing on the page. It may be a good idea to take a screenshot, in case you run into any problems.

If you have your own referral link, feel free to add it in the comments below. (Please only add it once.)

The Fine Print

  • Must use a referral link to qualify.
  • Must add one financial account in order to qualify for the $10 gift card.
  • Credit and debit card account do not qualify. Paypal and Coinbase accounts do not qualify. (Any bank account or investment account would work. You could use a spare bank account or an old bank account, if you’re more comfortable not adding your regular bank. )
  • First time customers only.
  • Amazon gift card will be sent electronically. (No word on how long it will take to get the gift card. When I did the offer last time around, I got the gift card 4 days later.)

Our Verdict

This could be an easy way for you – AND ME  – to get a $10 Amazon gift card. If you’re comfortable with giving one of your account login credentials it could be a good idea.  I don’t have any info on how long this offer will last.

I currently use Mint, and I was actually considering switching all my accounts over to Personal Capital since I don’t love everything about Mint, but I never got around to it. If anyone can give us a Mint vs Personal Capital analysis, please hit the comments below.

Hat tip for this goes to Maximizing Money for letting us know about this deal.

Great post and easy money. I used to use Mint but I actually think personal capital is way better. I was thinking of submitting this as a guest post today but oh well. Here is my referral link also – Thanks!

What exactly makes you say that Robert? I’m still torn between Mint and PC and can’t decide which one to use going forward for following reasons:
– Mint connects some Prepaid cards a la Buxx, Serve etc while PC doesn’t support these at all
– Mint seems to have a generally higher availability of banks/institutions to connect
– with PC it’s easier (for me) to add manual accounts which don’t change very often like Paypal prepaid savings
– the PC support actually TALKS to their users, something Mint has never really done so far

Chuck, thanks for letting us post our own referral link. Here is my link:

is it easy to remove the bank account afterwards?

Chuck, why did you cross out “AND ME” in your post?

Hi, I just used your link to open an account. Now I want to create my own referral link so that my girlfriend could also get that, but I don’t find “refer a friend” option in my account… is it hiding somewhere? Thank you Chuck!

Just to let you know Reilly, your link isn’t correct. It needs to start with the word “refer”.

@eric, I think he was making a joke…

I already have PC. Here’s my referral link!

I will say that I prefer Mint, but have both. PC handles the investment accounts way better than Mint. But Mint does a superb job with bank accounts and credit cards. Mint connects to more accounts. I find that contacting Mint over email works for solving the issues. I find that Mint has problem connecting with small banks and credit unions. So if you stick with the larger banks and CC companies, you won’t have much problems. I just wished Mint revamped their investment tab. Buy PC and merge together?! Probably not, different incentives in both platforms. That’s my 2 cents. But yes, join PC, and get the $10 Amazon gift card 😉

Signed up for account 2 weeks ago & haven’t received AMZN giftcard, but haven’t gotten promise that I should I have had it by now. Anyway since Personal Capital have been non responsive, who else would you suggest I contact to resolve?
