If you’ve had a look at interest rates recently, you know that finding a bank that offers more than 1.5% interest is next to impossible. Our economy hasn’t had the sharp turnaround many had hoped for and one of the areas continuing to suffer is the banking industry. Here to help is Perkstreet, the online checking and debit card solution for anyone looking to earn big rewards on their online checking account.
First, let’s talk about the PerkStreet 2% cash back debit card. If you sign-up for a PerkStreet account and maintain a balance of $5,000, you will earn 2% cash back on all purchases made. That $5,000 is important because if your balance to start the day is less than that, you will earn just 1% on purchases made that day. In addition to the 2% cash back on all purchases, PerkStreet members can earn 5% cash back on rotating categories throughout the year. That 5% promotion has now been extended to include holiday purchases!
You will earn 5% cash back on all non-PIN debit card purchases at the following popular holiday retailers until 1/31/2012:
- Art Supply, Craft, and Fabric Stores
- Sport and Athletic Clubs
To kick awareness of this promotion off, PerkStreet is offering one lucky DoughRoller reader a $100 Visa gift card. To be entered, you can do one of two things (or both!)
- Sign-up for a PerkStreet account and leave a comment with your name (5 entries)
- Leave a comment answering this question: “If your bank gave you $600, what would you spend it on?” (1 entry)
The winner will be chosen at random on Monday, October 18th. Only one sign-up and question answered will be allowed for each participant so please, no duplicate entries. The winner will be contacted by PerkStreet within 10 days of contest closing.
