The Stash It Forward Program (the “Program”) is a promotional referral program offered by Stash Investments LLC (“Stash”) where existing Stash customers may be rewarded for referring their friends to Stash subject to the terms and conditions stated herein (the “Program Terms”). To qualify for the cash bonuses described below, referred friends must open a Stash invest personal brokerage account and/or a Stash debit account in accordance with these Program Terms. By choosing to participate in the Program, you are accepting and agreeing to these Program Terms. These Program Terms form an agreement between you and Stash with respect to the Program. You should read these Program Terms carefully.
To be eligible to participate in this Program you must satisfy the following requirements: (i) you must have an individual taxable brokerage account advised by Stash (a "Stash Invest Account"), (ii) your Stash Invest Account must be in good standing, (iii) your referee friend must complete the account opening process for a Qualifying New Invest Account and/or a Qualifying New Debit Account, and (iv) your referee friend’s account(s) must be in good standing.
A "Qualifying New Invest Account" is a new individual taxable brokerage account advised by Stash opened by your referee friend using the special designated referral link from your invitation.
A "Qualifying New Debit Account" is a new Stash debit account provided by Green Dot Bank, Member FDIC, opened by your referee friend using the special designated referral link from your invitation, and where your referee friend has successfully set up one or more payroll direct deposits posted from your referee friend’s paycheck(s) to their new Stash debit account within ninety (90) days from the date your referee friend opened the new Stash Debit account.
Stash and/or Green Dot Bank reserve the right to determine in our/its sole or joint discretion whether an account is closed and/or in good standing. An account in good standing for purposes of this Program is an account for which all required opening documentation has been completed and verified, and is not locked, or restricted, or otherwise flagged in any way. If either account is closed or not in good standing for any reason at any time, any cash bonuses will be forfeited. Each Qualifying New Debit Account opened hereunder is also subject to approval by Green Dot Bank.
Subject to these Program Terms, Stash will pay cash bonuses as follows:
The maximum amount of cash bonuses that you may be rewarded under the Program is $500 per calendar year. Any cash bonus deposited by Stash hereunder is a fixed cash value and does not constitute stock or any other security, nor is it a recommendation to buy any specific stock or other security. The value of any cash bonus awarded hereunder may be taxable income to you. You are responsible for any federal or state taxes resulting from receipt of bonus funds. Please consult your tax advisor if you have questions about the tax treatment of bonus funds. Bonus funds must remain in your Stash Invest Account for ninety (90) days beginning from the date the bonus funds are deposited in such account and for the entirety of the 90-day period, which shall be determined by Stash in its sole discretion.
By participating in the Program, you agree to only send referral invitations to people you know personally by utilizing the referral link and sharing tools provided by Stash. You may send one invite in your name to each friend you invite. You acknowledge and accept that the friends you refer will be able to tell that you have a Stash account. Unless explicitly approved and authorized in writing by Stash, you may not make any statements to the friends you refer about Stash’s investment advisory products or services, or about your experiences as a Stash customer. You also agree not to make any statements that are untruthful, factually inaccurate, or misleading. You hereby acknowledge that any modification or efforts to bypass, manipulate, obscure or otherwise modify the delivery and accurate presentation of the referral link, sharing tools, content, disclosures or other materials and instructions we provide will be considered a violation of these Program Terms and may render you ineligible to participate further in the Program.
You agree not to publish or distribute your referral link in locations where the audience is likely to include individuals you do not know or who may not be interested in Stash, such as third party websites or platforms, including social media platforms. Stash reserves the right to refuse to pay any cash bonuses to you if it determines that you have failed to comply with the preceding sentence.
In referring friends in accordance with these Program Terms you are acting on behalf of Stash and under the supervision and control of Stash and hereby agree to perform duties under these Program Terms in a manner consistent with the instructions of Stash. You agree to limit the information you provide in connection with the referral to the referral web page and content provided by Stash. You agree that your participation in the Program will conform to these Program Terms as well as the provisions of the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, 15 U.S.C. § 80b-1, and the rules thereunder.
You hereby represent that: (1) you are not subject to any statutory disqualification set forth in Sections 203(e) and 203(f) of the Investment Advisers Act (or any amended or replacement regulatory provision(s)); (2) you are not currently the subject of any investigation or proceeding which could result in statutory disqualification; and (3) you do not have a "place of business" at which you regularly provide investment advisory services, solicit, meet with, or otherwise communicate with clients, or any other location that is held out to the general public as a location at which you provide investment advisory services, solicit, meet with, or otherwise communicate with clients in any U.S. state. If you cannot accurately make the preceding representations, you may not participate in the Program. If you are currently participating in the Program and the preceding representations become inaccurate, you agree to immediately inform Stash by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
