Tax season is here, and hopefully, that means you’re getting a refund. Did you know that you could get your refund up to 5 days early with Sesame Cash?¹ No fees—just more time with your money! Read on to learn how.


Filing Your Taxes

Just a reminder that you have until April 18, 2022, to file your 2021 taxes. If all goes well, you could get a refund. Your return can come back to you in the form of a paper check, but most people prefer direct deposit.

In fact, if you use your Sesame Cash account to get your tax refund, you could get your payment up to 5 days faster.¹ No fees or headaches, just access to your money a little bit faster. Which means you can use it for bills, fun, or whatever else you need.


Here’s How To Get your Tax Refund Faster:

Depending on your situation, the tax process can feel difficult, and you do have the option to hire professional tax prep services. There are also several services that allow you to quickly file on your own, and these are great for people without any complicated deductions or income situations. Either way, be sure to do your research and find the option that is best for you.

When filing your 2021 taxes you can register for direct deposit to get your tax refund even faster! Simply connect your no-fee Sesame Cash account to make sure you get your money quickly—and up to five days sooner—with no waiting for paper checks or worrying about depositing them!¹

Finding your direct deposit information is easy. Simply log into the Credit Sesame app, hit the Cash ($) tab, then tap settings, and lastly click “direct deposit.”

1 Early access to direct deposit funds depends on submission timing from the payer. Funds can be made available on the day the payment file is received, which may be up to 2 days earlier than the scheduled payment date. Federal tax payments may be received from the Internal Revenue Service five days before the scheduled payment date.
2 Cash back offers are powered by Empyr, Inc. and Button, Inc. Cash back requires the activation of any active offer before payment is made. Offers vary by geographic location and are subject to change. Please review the full program terms for more details.

3 Sesame Cash is a prepaid debit card issued by Community Federal Savings Bank (CFSB). Building credit with Sesame Cash requires you to also open a virtual secured credit card with CFSB that is reported to the credit bureaus. Use money from your Sesame Cash account to create a virtual secured credit card. Your debit card purchases are then added up to create a balance on your virtual secured credit card. As you make these purchases, an amount equal to the balance on your virtual secured credit card is also set aside in your Sesame Cash account to ensure you can make timely payments to pay off the balance on your virtual secured credit card at the end of each month, allowing you to build a positive payment history. Credit Sesame does not guarantee credit score improvement. Any predicted credit improvement from the use of your virtual secured credit card assumes that you will maintain healthy credit habits, including paying bills on time, keeping credit balances low, avoiding unnecessary inquiries, appropriate financial planning, and more.

4 International and out-of-network cash withdrawal fees apply. Third-party and cash deposit fees may apply.
