Update 11/26/20: There are quite a few new boosts out today. I’m seeing 10% off Best Buy, Nike, Adidas, Starbucks, and Bath & Body Works. I’m also seeing 15% off Chewy. There may also be more – check your app!
Update 11/13/20 to include this week’s boosts as there are many new ones this week. offers appear to be targeted, but both my wife and I had many of the best ones on both of our accounts. Note that some expire in 28 days whereas others expire in 7 days. Either way, the discounts here could really add up. Original post with updated boosts follows.
I recently finally saw the light on signing up for the Cash app. For those who like me have been behind on that and/or those who aren’t watching boosts closely, it’s worth taking a look at this week’s new offers as you could probably save some money.

The Cash App is basically like a prepaid debit card (this is owned / run by Square) that you fund with a debit card (to my knowledge, you’ll need a real debit card for this, not a gift card). They send you a physical card in the mail (like mine pictured above) and then you load money via the app and activate “boosts” that save you money on specific types of purchases. I’ve been using my HSBC debit card since I have an offer right now to earn $15 per month by using my debit card 10 times per month.
While some of these discounts won’t be very appealing (for example, you can often get Domino’s gift cards at discounts of around 20% off face value), others can be very useful (I needed $25 in groceries the other day, so I also grabbed a $50 Amazon gift card and got 10% off my entire purchase). Obviously this comes at an opportunity cost of losing out on credit card rewards, so you have to come to your own decisions as to whether it is worth eschewing your rewards credit card now and then for a bit of a win here.
That said, the rewards here could really add up and in some cases these are discounts that we just don’t ordinarily see.
If you’re new to the Cash App, you likely won’t get your card in time to use this week’s boosts (mine took at least a week or so to arrive), though with some discounts valid for 28 days (like Aldi, CVS, Walgreens, and the $5 anywhere deal), you should still get a chance to get useful offers. If you’re interested in signing up, feel free to use one of our referral links. You’ll get $5 for signing up and sending someone at least $5 (I sent $5 to my wife to trigger my $5 bonus and she sent money to me to trigger her bonus)
Note that if the link doesn’t automatically populate the referral code, there is a place in the app to enter it after you’ve downloaded and installed it.
The wins here aren’t huge individually, but they can add up to be something substantial enough for those interested. Totally separate from this Cash App deal, I was at Office Max recently buying two Grocery Everywhere cards for a net cost of about $395 (during a week when they were on sale) and the cashier said something about every bit of savings on groceries counting. When I said that I also get 5 points per dollar on my credit card, he said “like twenty bucks — hey man, that’s a couple packs of chicken”. He’s not wrong. I’ll take a couple free packs of chicken now and then, so I shouldn’t have been ignoring this app and I’m glad I got my household in on it.
