“The best way for me to maximize every one of my hard earned dollars.”

Cash Account

“I keep more money in the account knowing that I can get it out quickly when I need it. I’d rather keep money in my Cash Account which has a higher interest rate than all other accounts I have.”

Welcome to your money’s happy place. 🌝

Don’t save your questions.
We’ve got answers.

Money is complicated enough, so we work hard to make everything about our Cash Account easier to understand. Here are some answers to frequently asked questions:

Will the interest rate lock in, or does it change?

Short answer: it changes based on a number of factors — the most important factor being the Federal Funds Rate.

Long answer: it’s in our best interest to offer our clients a competitive rate, so we’re always looking for opportunities to do just that. When our partner banks pay us more for our deposits, we pay it forward to you with a better APY. We’ll always notify you when the rates change.

How hard is it to transfer from savings to investing?

So not hard at all! When the market is open, money can usually be transferred to your taxable Investment Account or IRA in minutes.Learn more

But what if I want to withdraw my money?

It’s your money, so you can withdraw it whenever you want. If your external account is in the RTP® Network, it’s eligible for free same-day transfers when you request as late as 6pm PT / 9pm ET every day, even on weekends & holidays!. For other accounts, withdrawals usually take only one business day to arrive, though if it’s from a recent deposit, it may take a few extra days to process.

How many fees are there?

None! Zilch! Nada! We’ve never charged any account fees for the Cash Account, and we never will.

Unfortunately, I have these things called bills. Can you make them go away?

We can’t make them go all the way away, but it’s very easy to set up bill pay with the Cash Account. Paying bills is kind of like making them go away, right?

What if I want actual dollar bills in my actual hands?

If you’re good with twenties, we’ve got free ATMs IRL. Just use our Debit Card to withdraw from more than 19,000 free ATMs at places like CVS, Target, Walgreens, and many, many more.
