You must have a Rewards Checking account open for at least 30 days, and either receive $2,500 worth of recurring direct deposits into your account from an employer or another source of income or keep an average monthly balance of $2,500 or more in your account. Cash back is only available for Qualified Purchases made with a Rewards Checking debit card.1

Tip: When shopping in store select “credit” instead of “debit” at the point-of-sale where available to ensure you receive the cash back. The cash back you earn will automatically be credited to your account at the end of the month following the earning period. 

There are two ways a debit card can be processed at the time of a purchase.

The first option is called the “debit/online/PIN debit” method, where you enter your PIN at the point of sale and the funds are immediately debited from your account.

The second option is called the “credit/offline/signature debit” method, where you select the “credit” button, sending the transaction through the credit card processing network. A hold is placed on the money for the transaction in your account, which clears or processes in a day or two. You have to use this debit function if you want to receive cash back during your transaction. It is important to note that when you are using your debit card for online purchases, your card will automatically run as a credit transaction.

Yes, when you use your LendingClub debit card for an online purchase your card will automatically run as a credit transaction, making the purchase eligible for cash back should your account meet the qualifications.

The cash back you earn will automatically be credited to your Rewards Checking account at the end of the month following the earning period, for each month that qualification requirements are met.

    1. Rewards Checking Cash Back Rewards: The Debit Card Rewards Program (“Cash Back Rewards”) provides 1.00% cash-back on all Qualified Purchases using a debit card tied to Eligible Accounts. Eligible Accounts are: Rewards Checking accounts that meet the following requirements for the calendar month in review: (1) Maintain an average monthly balance of at least $2,500.00; or (2) Receives at least $2,500.00 in Qualifying Direct Deposits.

      Qualifying Direct Deposits are defined as: Recurring Automated Clearing House (ACH) credits, including payroll, pension or government payments (such as Social Security) made by your employer, or an outside agency. We may require documentation to verify that credits are Qualifying Direct Deposits. Qualifying Direct Deposits do not include peer to peer payments or ACH transfers (funds transfers) from your external accounts.

      Qualified Purchases are defined as: Signature-based purchases made using the debit card tied to an Eligible Account. These are “credit” purchases that can be made in stores and online. To make a signature-based purchase, select “credit” rather than debit at point-of-sale kiosks. The “credit” option is most often pre-selected when making purchases online using a debit card. Online subscription payments may not be considered signature-based purchases. The payment transaction type (signature-based or other) is ultimately decided by the merchant and is based on how the transaction is transmitted at the time of processing. Qualified Purchases do not include: (1) any goods or services purchased that are returned or otherwise credited to your Eligible Account; (2) unlawful purchases; or (3) purchases of currency, cash or cash equivalents (including, without limitation, currency from the U.S. Mint, Travelers Checks, gift cards, cryptocurrency, casino chips, peer to peer payments, prepaid debit cards, account openings, loan payments, or other cash equivalents). Any earned Cash Back Rewards will be credited to your account on or before the 10th calendar day of the next calendar month. The Eligible Account must be open and active at the time the Cash Back Reward is credited.

LendingClub reserves the right to modify or discontinue the rebate program at any time. Out-of-network ATM fees cost $2.50 on average — source: CNBC as of 01/26/2022.
