We like extra money. Heck, who doesn’t? Unfortunately, no one seems to be handing any out lately. We don’t see any of it lying around anywhere.

Oh, wait! Here’s some extra money, right over here! It’s a way to turn your debit card into a cash-back card, funneling extra cash into your pockets every time you buy something.

The Aspiration account comes with a debit card that gets you up to 5% cash back
on your debit purchases. That can add up quickly!

Think about how high your monthly grocery bill is. This way, you get a cut every time you swipe your card. Need to fill up the gas tank? Bam. More extra money. 

Get Access to Extra Money — Plus More Perks — in 5 Minutes

Aspiration’s Spend and Save account is an all-in-one cash management account, so your money is in one spot and easy to manage. Besides earning rebates on your purchases, you also get other benefits:

  • You earn up to 11 times the average interest on the money you set aside to save (the FDIC reports that the average account earns just .09%). These earnings get piled right back into your account, another source of extra money.
  • You get five free ATM withdrawals a month and can use any ATM you want
  • You get an all-in-one online-only account that comes with no monthly account-maintenance fee (and, instead of huge markups on fees like wire transfers, you pay only their cost)

Best of all, switching accounts is really pretty simple. It takes less than five minutes to sign up for Aspiration.
