Awhile back we took advantage of the free money offer from Revolution Money Exchange. They were offering a $25 signup bonus. Even though that promotion has apparently ended, they are now offering another $15 in free money!
Last weekend their “RevolutionCard” arrived in the mail with an offer for a free $15! Use your card for three purchases of $25 each, and you’ll get $5 for each purchase. That’s 20% back!
They make it pretty easy, allowing you to use your card at Walgreens, CVS, clothing stores and a few grocery stores. There is a list of 150,000 merchants, but I picked the ones that would be easy for me to use.
The RevolutionCard isn’t a credit card. It’s an access card to your online Revolution Money Exchange account. There are no fees to use your card to make purchases at the participating retail stores. However, there are fees for ATM withdrawals and balance inquiries… so don’t do that!
I’m hoping that longtime readers took advantage of the previous offer, so watch your mailbox, your card should be arriving any day.
If you don’t have a card yet, sign up for a Revolution Money Exchange account for free. It’s only takes a few minutes. Hopefully they’ll send this mailer out to everyone, as it looks very generic and doesn’t have my name or anything on it. I’m guessing that they are sending it to everyone when they send you your card. I’ll get my mom to give it a try and report back if she gets the mailer.
Double the fun with a friend or spouse. Even though the $25 sign up bonus expired, they still give you $10 to refer a friend. Once you have an account, be sure to refer your spouse. Then you can earn $15 x 2 (for the card bonuses) + $10 (for the referral) = $40!
