  • Varo money is offering 5% cash back on all debit card spend until December 31st, 2018. Limit of $100 cash back ($2,000 in spend)

The Fine Print

  • Varo will reward you with up to 5% of your eligible purchases made between December 3–31, 2018, up to $100 cash back based on the first $2,000 you spend.

  • As sole sponsor and administrator of this offer, Varo Money, Inc., reserves the right to cancel or modify its terms or terminate any customer’s eligibility at any time and without prior notice.
  • Offer void where prohibited.

Our Verdict

Crazy good offer, only downside is that it looks like they will consider this as interest and not a rebate and will report it on a 1099-INT. Varo is mobile banking app, they have raised $78.4 million to date. Given the account only offers 1.75% APY there hasn’t been much reason to open it but if these types of offers continue then that will change quickly. If you already have a Varo account let us know if you received this offer or not.

I have varo, no offer 🙁

Also you didn’t mention their ongoing referral program. $50 for no chex and no HP is pretty solid for a lot of us.

There wasn’t a referral program when I signed up. At least I got this email.

Used Ganesh’s referral and pushed $300 from Discover saving account (after verification using trail deposits). $300 hit this morning and got the $100 bonus. As easy as it can be. Thankfully I had an old iPad Mini lying around as otherwise my household is android user.
