Each time you swipe your debit card, what do you get? Probably just a stack of charges and a dwindling account balance, right?


But more and more people are earning extra cash with the Aspiration debit card. Actually, 1.5 million people have already found out about it and made the switch.

Stocking up on groceries? Filling up the tank? Buying something online? You could earn up to 10% back each time.

Plus, your Aspiration account comes with an attached savings account, which pays up to 16 times the average account pays. Even more mindless money.

Maybe you’ve been thinking about doing making the switch — it just sounds like a giant chore. But the truth is, it shouldn’t take more than five minutes (seriously, time yourself), and you don’t even have to get up from where you are.

Just enter your email address here, and link your current bank account to fund your new one. And just a heads up: It’ll ask you for your Social Security number, but so does every other financial account.

Plus, it’s nice knowing that with Aspiration your money is FDIC insured and under a military-grade encryption. That’s just nerd talk for “this is totally safe.”

Now you can finally stop feeling dread each time you swipe your debit card and instead get excited to see how much extra cash you make.
