I like rewards, do you like rewards? I purposely shop at our local bookstore because I like that they give me their own $10 to spend after I spend my own $100. I like that kind of business model. I like to shop on Amazon using my Amazon Prime card because after a certain amount of purchases, I get to take a large percentage off my next purchase. It’s just good business. I align myself with brands and companies that offer good incentives. Maybe I’m a glutton for rewards, maybe I’m just a smart shopper.
Radius bank lets you earn an average of $20 every month. The $20 comes from ATM rebates (THANK YOU – ATM FEES ARE SO ANNOYING), Cashback Rewards (Yes, please!) and Interest (every time I hear that work I think of 8th grade Math, shiver.) Wait, there is more. If you use a Radius checking account you can earn unlimited 1% cash back on transactions.
All you need to get started opening a checking account is a $100 deposit and a social security number. So, what will I buy with an extra $20 per month? A nice bottle of wine. A daily Starbucks latte. A new outfit at Target (like this late summer score) A bluetooth shower speaker (purchased on Amazon for extra points obviously), a pretty bouquet of “treat yo-self” flowers, an hour worth of babysitting for 3 kids, a new pair of Hankie-Pankies, or a refill on my VitalProteins collagen.
So, would you buy with an extra $20/month?
