Sesame Cash is now the most rewarding digital bank account, providing customers with instant cash back on everyday purchases and cash rewards for credit score improvements
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — September 2, 2020 — Credit Sesame today launched Cash Back Offers from Sesame Cash, the company’s rapidly growing digital banking platform. Customers can now earn up to 15 percent cash back instantly at thousands of local and national merchants by paying with their Sesame Cash debit card. With the addition of Cash Back Offers to the company’s growing list of features to help consumers grow their cash and credit, Sesame Cash is now the most rewarding digital bank account for consumers. Instant cash back rewards are especially important now, with many consumers still facing financial hardship as government programs expire and record unemployment continues during the pandemic.
Credit Sesame’s Cash Back Offers is one of the only merchant rewards programs with no points and no waiting. Customers can earn instant cash back and discounts based on where they shop. They can save money toward everyday expenses like gas, cable bills, and groceries, as well as earn cash back on purchases at their favorite restaurants and retailers. The Credit Sesame mobile app makes saving money even easier by revealing nearby stores and restaurants with available offers and discounts.
Sesame Cash is the only digital bank account that also rewards customers when they improve their credit score on Credit Sesame’s platform. Since launching general availability of Sesame Cash in May, Credit Sesame has rewarded thousands of customers in cash rewards for improving their credit scores. Between March and June, Credit Sesame saw its customers’ credit scores increase by an average of 19 points despite the economic downturn. In addition to cash back rewards, customers can receive perks like daily free credit score updates, monitoring alerts and $1 million credit and identity protection insurance.
“Financial stability and confidence is about having a healthy credit score and cash flow, and we want to help our customers with both,” said Miro Pavletic, General Manager and Head of Global Banking, Credit Sesame. “With Sesame Cash and features like real-time cash back rewards and rewards for improving their credit score, we are helping customers put more money back in their pocket than any other digital banking service.
