It’s Free Money Friday… on Thursday this week! This PerkStreet offer expires tomorrow, so I wanted to make sure you had enough time to sign up for it.
Update: 2% cash back offer is extended.
Use Your account. The PerkStreet account has no fees when you use your account and no minimum balance requirement. There is an inactivity fee if you don’t use your account, but if you’re using the account for 2% cash back, you’ll probably use it frequently.
Set up an automatic transaction. If you think there will be a time when you won’t use your account, do yourself a favor and set up an automatic transaction, like a monthly bill pay, or scheduled withdrawal or deposit to the account. I like to set up automatic transfers from one of our other accounts (like FNBO Direct or ING Direct for anything that needs a monthly transfer.
