The Point Debit card came on the scene last year and keeps getting more and more noteworthy with a variety of earning opportunities like 5x Costco, 5x Wal-Mart and a referral offer that pays $100 for both parties after the referred party spends $50 within a week of being approved.

The hits just keep on coming.  Now Point is offering 1% (1x) back on direct deposits for March, April and May, up to 5,000 pts ($50) back per month, as long as you spend $100/month on the card.

Quick Thoughts

The Point card has been a fun addition and continues to be a compelling card for spend…and now deposits as well.  This seems like an incredible deal as there is nothing in the terms about needing to keep a minimum balance.  There doesn’t seem to be anything keeping you from transferring money out of the account once you receive the bonus.

Two things we don’t know:

  • What counts as a direct deposit?  The e-mail says payroll, but the terms just say direct deposit.  We will absolutely be testing this out once March hits, but in the mean time, we would love to hear data points with anyone who has experience.
  • Is this eligible on new accounts?  The terms specifically say it is only valid for the person to whom it is addressed, but everyone that I know who has a Point card got the e-mail, so I assume it’s broadly targeted.  I would imagine that new accounts would be eligible as well, but that’s just a guess.

This will all become much more clear once March hits and we can try things out, but on the surface, it certainly seems like low-hanging fruit for some pajama dollas…especially if you already have the Point card.
