Earn Free Cash Every Month With The VITAL Card




The World’s First and Only Social Credit Card | The Credit Card That Pays You To Share

How it works

  • Share VITAL Card – VITAL rewards you based on how many friends you sign up. You also get credit for everyone your friends bring in and even their friends too!
  • Grow your VITAL score – Your VITAL Score determines how much cash you earn every month. The more you share, the higher your score grows:
    • Every time you sign up a friend to VITAL you earn 4 points towards your VITAL Score
    • You get an additional 2 points for everyone your friend signs up and another 1 point for the people they sign up
  • Earn Cash Rewards – Your cash rewards are deposited straight into your account every month, even if you have no additional shares that month, the rewards keep coming!

VITAL will be going live sometime early this year.  Head over here to get early access and start growing your score!

This is such a great offer and definitely one worth looking into.  Just getting one person to sign up will get you around $8 per month, FOREVER (not just a one time payment).


How to get started with VITAL ↵

  • Sign up with them here
  • Then share your unique link
    • Every sign up has the potential to make you $8 to $100 per month depending on spending habits
  • The more people that sign up, the more you can make per month
  • Encourage the people that you get to sign up to sign up others because you can make money off of their signups as well

Acorns: An Overview

I’ve decided to take the leap and sign up with Acorns.

Intimidated to invest?  If you want an insanely simple way to save and invest your money, consider signing up as well.


What is Acorns?

Acorns helps you save & invest spare change from your everyday purchases and invest into a diversified portfolio of stocks and bonds. You can easily get started in minutes: anytime, anywhere. 

Acorns is a free mobile app that rounds up your credit and debit card purchases to the nearest dollar, then puts this digital “spare change” in an investment account. You don’t notice it happening as it is automatically done for you on every purchase, making it a hands off approach.

All you need to get started is a bank account and an Internet connection.  There is no minimum deposit or balance as well as no restrictions on withdrawals.

It is a great way to get started on investing, as Acorns simplifies the process. They have essentially removed the guesswork from the equation.

By starting small, continually adding and being patient, growth will happen automatically. All it takes is time.  

Sound simple enough? Read on 🙂

“People generally associate investing with lots of dollars,” said Jeff Cruttenden, co-founder and CEO of Acorns. “Once [people] find out that you can invest spare change, it’s a really attractive concept.”

Signing Up

Sign up is relatively simple.

You will need to answer multiple questions to create a financial profile and state your investment goals.

Make sure you have your bank and account credentials available.   You can link up as many debit and credit cards as you want.

There are five different Acorns investment portfolio options you will choose from, ranging from aggressive to conservative (aggressive, moderate, or conservative).  Each one is made up of six exchange-traded funds (ETFs) selected to achieve your portfolio objective.  These portfolio options are compiled by a team of investment analysts, mathematicians, and economists in conjunction with Nobel Prize-winning economist Harry Markowitz.

Sign up here today and receive a $5 bonus!

Round Ups

Whenever you make a purchase, Acorns “rounds up” the purchase to the next dollar and invests the change into a diversified stock portfolio. When your Round-Ups exceed $5, Acorns transfers the money from your debit/checking account to this portfolio.


Let’s say you buy a meal at McDonald’s for $6.45 using a linked credit card.   Acorns would round up to $7, with the difference of .55 (round up amount) being invested.

This would happen automatically.  However, it doesn’t have to be, as you can change the setting to be manual.  In this setting, you would manually add round ups by selecting from a list of payment transactions.

One thing of note as well is that Acorns does not cover overdraft fees for its withdrawals.

How Much Does It Cost to Use Acorns?

They charge $1 per month for balances under $5,000 or 0.25% per year for balances over $5,000.  Students and those under 24 years can use the app for free.

There are no fees on accounts with a balance of $0.


Acorns has the following security features:

  • SIPC Insured Accounts – Every Acorns account is insured up to $500,000 for fraud
  • SSL Encryption – Website and app are secured with 256-bit encryption
  • Account Alerts – Users are contacted about unusual account activity
  • Bank-level Security – Secure servers and privacy verified by physical security
  • Account Safeguards -Multi-factor authentication, automatic logouts, and ID verification help prevent unauthorized access

Other Information

  • You can deposit money directly into your Acorns, account in addition to the automatic Round Ups
  • When you’re ready to withdraw your money, it’s in your account within a few days
  • Automatic rebalancing helps your account benefit from market corrections
  • You can change your risk profile at any time to be more or less aggressive

    • “Redeem” to submit a receipt
