I stumbled across this the other day and thought it was pretty cool. I’m a long-time Square Cash user (now called Cash App), but I didn’t know much about the Square Cash Card, a debit card that’s tied to the funds in your Square Cash account. Using a Cash Card could be convenient, but we typically empty our Cash account balance after each incoming transaction.
Now I have a reason not to do that. Square is offering “Boosts” on the Cash Card that give discounts at participating stores & restaurants — Wendy’s, Chick-fil-A, and Whole Foods, to name a few.
One boost in particular caught my attention: $1 off at coffee shops. Um, yes please! I don’t typically go in for $5 lattes, so $1 off goes a long way for me. And with a minimum spend of only $1.50, I could be sipping someone else’s java for less than a buck.
Here’s another awesome Cash Card detail: you get to create a design that’s laser-etched on the card itself (I’ll post mine here when it arrives). I used my Studio Neat Cosmonaut to write my initials, and then I selected a coffee cup graphic to go with them. Super cool.
Want $5 free to load up on your Cash Card when you give it a try? Sign up for Square Cash and we’ll each get $5.
