8. SoFi’s Referral Program

Last Updated: July 2024

The following describes the terms of service which apply to participation in the referral or account opening promotional programs (collectively, the “Referral Programs”) currently offered by Social Finance, LLC (“SoFi”) and its affiliates. If you wish to participate in any Referral Program described below, you agree to the terms for such Referral Program described in Part I below, as well as the General Terms and Conditions in Part II, which apply to all Referral Programs.

**Please note that any friend whom you’d like to refer must use your specific product referral link in accordance with the terms and conditions associated with the specific promotional campaign for that link. By clicking “Share Link” and sharing your link with your friend, you agree that you have express consent to send your friend promotional messages about SoFi’s products and services. Note you have separate referral links for (1) Personal Loans and Student Loans, (2) Checking and Savings accounts, or (3) Invest products. Only one referral reward and one welcome bonus per new customer, with the exception of referrals for new closed end unsecured installment loans. You will not receive multiple referral bonuses for the same friend taking advantage of multiple promotions, nor will your friend receive multiple welcome bonuses for taking advantage of multiple promotions unless they are for a new closed end unsecured installment loan that your friend has not previously obtained. You will receive an additional referral bonus for the same friend funding a new personal loan, new student loan refinance or new private student loan, provided the friend applies through the specific product’s referral link and has not previously obtained that type of closed end unsecured lending product. Employees of Social Finance, LLC and its affiliates are not eligible to receive referral bonuses under the Referral Programs.

Each person referred should be someone you have a direct, personal relationship with. You may not distribute a Referral Link or otherwise solicit anyone through mass email, any form of commercial advertising or other similar means.

SoFi reserves the right to review, investigate, and disqualify anyone from participation in the SoFi Referral Program at any time, and reserves the right to not honor any referral which in our sole discretion was solicited in a manner inconsistent with the spirit or terms and conditions of the SoFi Referral Program.

Furthermore, SoFi Securities reserves the right to seek reimbursement from any customer (including by deduction from their Invest Account) of amounts paid as Referral Bonuses to customers solicited via mass solicitation. Please note that in certain circumstances the deduction of such amounts from their account may result in a negative balance.

Any person referred to a SoFi loan or SoFi Checking or Savings account may not have an existing registered SoFi account. A person referred to a SoFi Invest account may have an existing SoFi account.

If account funding is required to meet referral bonus payout eligibility, P2P transfers or proceeds of a reward, promotion or similar program are not eligible methods of funding.

To protect the privacy of those you refer, referral prospect account information or eligibility is not, under any circumstances, permitted to be shared with referral promoters.



Referral Program — Part I

Loan Referral Program

The terms below and those set forth in Part II govern your participation in SoFi Bank, N.A.’s (“SoFi Bank”) Loan Referral Program (the “Loan Referral Program“) described below. The Loan Referral Program is open to any consumer who registers on SoFi’s website and who resides outside of the state of Vermont (the “Eligible Loan Referrer(s)“). Employees of Social Finance, LLC and its affiliates are not eligible to receive Loan Referral Bonuses under the Loan Referral Program.

Eligible Loan Referrers are limited to refer friends, colleagues, family members, and other people they (collectively, the “Eligible Loan Recipient(s)“) believe may be interested in applying for a student loan or personal loan product as described in a specific promotional campaign (collectively, the “Eligible Loan(s)“). SoFi Bank reserves the right to disqualify anyone from participating in the Loan Referral Program at any time. The Eligible Loan Referrers will NOT receive a Loan Referral Bonus for referrals for any other SoFi Bank loan products. Anyone who violates these terms and conditions is ineligible for payment of any bonus.

To receive credit for a referral under the Loan Referral Program, Eligible Loan Referrers must send their unique referral link to an Eligible Loan Recipient, the Eligible Loan Recipient must use their Eligible Loan Referrer’s unique referral link within 120 days after receipt of the Eligible Loan Referrer’s unique referral link, and the Eligible Loan Recipient must meet the terms and conditions of the specific promotional campaign associated with the unique referral link that was used for the referral. Further, in order for the Eligible Loan Recipient to receive their Loan Welcome bonus for a SoFi Personal Loan, the loan must still be an active loan in good standing ninety (90) days after the disbursement date. For Private Student Loan referrals, the Eligible Loan Recipient and Eligible Loan Referrer will receive their bonus sixty (60) days after their first loan disbursement, and the Eligible Loan Referrer is eligible for a maximum of 5 total referral bonuses for the Private Student Loan product. Further, for referrals for the Private Student Loan product no payments will be made if the Eligible Loan Referrer is employed by a qualified educational institution. If the Eligible Loan Recipient uses the Eligible Loan Referrer’s unique referral link and meets the terms and conditions of the specific promotional campaign associated with that unique referral link, SoFi Bank or its designee shall pay to (a) the Eligible Loan Referrer, a referral bonus into a SoFi Bank Checking or Savings account in the amount specified in the promotional campaign associated with the unique referral link that was used for the referral (the “Loan Referral Bonus“); and (b) the Eligible Loan Recipient, a welcome bonus into a SoFi Bank Checking or Savings account in the amount specified in the promotional campaign associated with the unique referral link that was used for the referral (the “Loan Welcome Bonus“). If either the Eligible Loan Referrer or the Eligible Loan Recipient does not qualify for a SoFi Bank Checking or Savings account, SoFi may offer other payment options at SoFi’s sole discretion. Only one Loan Referral Bonus and one Loan Welcome Bonus will be awarded for each referred Eligible Loan Recipient, regardless of whether the Eligible Loan Recipient takes out multiple Eligible Loans. Further, and notwithstanding the above, the following additional restrictions shall apply (1) no Loan Referral Bonus will be paid to otherwise Eligible Loan Referrers who are residents of Vermont, and (2) no Loan Referral Bonus will be paid for otherwise funded loans made to Vermont residents. An Eligible Loan Referrer will not earn a Loan Referral Bonus if the Eligible Loan Recipient has or had an existing funded SoFi loan account, or if the Eligible Loan Recipient does not use the unique referral link provided by the Eligible Loan Referrer.

If the Eligible Loan Recipient already has a SoFi loan account, is on our opt-out list or the national email opt-out list, or has already used another Eligible Loan Referrer’s unique referral link, the Eligible Loan Recipient may not be sent an email. We cannot disclose to you any information about funded loans opened by any Eligible Loan Recipients you refer to us. Participation in the Loan Referral Program serves as a one-time limited waiver of privacy rights by both parties, whereby each may become aware of the presence of an account relationship with SoFi Bank.

$1,000 Medical and Dental Referral Offer: All referral program terms and conditions apply. Offer is subject to lender approval and not available to residents of Vermont. The offer is only open to new medical or dental Student Loan Refinance borrowers and may not be combined with other offers aside from the autopay discount. For both the referrer and referee to each receive a $1,000 bonus, the referee must: (1) register and apply for a medical or dental student loan refinance through the referral link provided; (2) meet SoFi’s underwriting criteria; (3) complete and fund a loan with SoFi; and (4) have or apply for a SoFi Checking and Savings or have a SoFi Money account to receive the bonus. Once conditions are met and the loan has been disbursed, both the referrer and referee welcome bonus will be deposited into their respective SoFi Checking and Savings or Money account within 30 calendar days. If the referrer and/or referee do not qualify for the SoFi Checking and Savings SoFi will offer payment via ACH pending completion of Form W9. Bonuses that are not redeemed within 180 calendar days of the date they were made available to the recipient may be subject to forfeit. Bonus amounts of $600 or greater in a single calendar year will be reported to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as miscellaneous income to the recipient on Form 1099-MISC in the year received as required by applicable law. Recipient is responsible for any applicable federal, state or local taxes associated with receiving the bonus offer; consult your tax advisor to determine applicable tax consequences. SoFi reserves the right to change or terminate the offer at any time with or without notice.

Invest Referral Program

The terms below and those set forth in Part II govern your participation in the SoFi Invest Referral Program (the “Invest Referral Program”). The Invest Referral Program is open to all current SoFi Active Invest account holders who meet the criteria below, and wish to refer someone to open a SoFi Invest account offered by SoFi Securities LLC. A referrer must have a SoFi Invest account offered by SoFi Securities LLC (either an Automated Invest account or an Active Invest account) which is funded and in good standing (i.e., not suspended) (an “Eligible Invest Referrer(s)”). Employees of Social Finance, LLC and its affiliates are not eligible to receive Invest Referral Bonuses under the Invest Referral Program.

The Eligible Invest Referrers are encouraged to refer friends, colleagues, family members, and anyone else they believe may be interested in opening a SoFi Active Invest account (the “Eligible Invest Recipient(s)”). The Eligible Invest Referrers will NOT receive an Invest Referral Bonus for referrals for a SoFi Automated Invest account. SoFi Securities LLC, or its designee (collectively, “SoFi Securities”) reserve the right to disqualify anyone from participation in the Invest Referral Program at any time.

To receive credit for a referral made under the Invest Referral Program, an Eligible Invest Referrer must access their own unique referral link and send it to the Eligible Invest Recipient(s) whom they wish to refer to open a new SoFi Active Invest Account (an “New Active Invest Account”). The Eligible Invest Recipient must use the Eligible Invest Referrer’s unique referral link to open a New Active Invest Account within 120 days after receipt of the Eligible Invest Referrer’s unique referral link, and meet the terms and conditions of the specific promotional campaign associated with the unique referral link that was used for the referral.

For each Eligible Invest Recipient who opens and funds a New Active Invest Account within 120 days after receipt of the Eligible Invest Referrer’s unique referral link, and meets the terms and conditions of the specific promotional campaign associated with the unique referral link that was used for the referral, SoFi Securities will: (a) credit an Invest account of the Eligible Invest Referrer with a referral bonus in the amount and method specified in the promotional campaign associated with the unique referral link that was used for the referral (the “Invest Referral Bonus”); and (b) credit the New Active Invest Account of the Eligible Invest Recipient, with a one-time welcome bonus in the amount and method specified in the promotional campaign associated with the unique referral link that was used for the referral (the “Invest Welcome Bonus”). Only one Invest Referral Bonus and one Invest Welcome Bonus will be awarded for each referred Eligible Invest Recipient, regardless of whether the Eligible Invest Recipient opens and funds multiple accounts. An Eligible Invest Referrer will not earn an Invest Referral Bonus if the Eligible Invest Recipient has or had an existing funded SoFi Invest account or does not use the unique referral link provided by the Eligible Invest Referrer.

Please note that if the Eligible Invest Recipient already has an Invest account, is on our opt-out list or on the national email opt-out list, or has already used another Eligible Invest Referrer’s unique referral link, SoFi Securities will not send an email to such Eligible Invest Recipient. We cannot disclose to you any information about New Active Invest Accounts opened by any Eligible Invest Recipients you refer to us. Participation in the Invest Referral Program serves as a one-time, limited waiver of privacy rights by both you and the Eligible Invest Recipient, pursuant to which each may become aware that the other has an account relationship with SoFi Securities.

Bank Referral Program

Referred participants must first apply and successfully open a SoFi Checking and Savings account. To receive the promotional bonus, they must then make a deposit of $50 or more that settles within 14 days of registration. The deposit must be made via an ACH transfer from a linked bank account, via “Instant Transfer” from a debit card (if available), or from cash deposits, mobile check deposits, or wires. P2P transfers (ACH-based P2P or debit-card based P2P from Venmo, PayPal, Apple Cash, Square Cash, etc.) are excluded. Within 7 business days of such a qualifying deposit, SoFi will: (a) credit referred members a one-time bonus of 2,500 rewards points (worth $25 when redeemed toward active SoFi accounts, including but not limited to, your SoFi Checking or Savings account, SoFi Money® account, SoFi Active Invest account, SoFi Credit Card account, SoFi Personal Loan, Private Student Loan, Student Loan Refinance, or toward SoFi Travel purchases) and (b) credit the referrer a one-time bonus of 7,500 rewards points (worth $75 when redeemed toward active SoFi accounts, including but not limited to, your SoFi Checking or Savings account, SoFi Money® account, SoFi Active Invest account, SoFi Credit Card account, SoFi Personal Loan, Private Student Loan, Student Loan Refinance, or toward SoFi Travel purchases). All terms and conditions applicable to the use of SSoFi Member Rewards apply. Note that this is a limited-time offer from SoFi with limited availability, and is subject to expire at any time. Referrer will not earn a referral bonus if the recipient has or had an existing SoFi account or profile, or does not use the unique referral link provided by the referrer. Employees of Social Finance, LLC and its affiliates are not eligible to receive referral bonuses under the Bank Referral Program. In no event will any referrer or recipient be entitled to receive more than $10,000 in cumulative referral or welcome bonuses under all available SoFi referral programs within any calendar year. Bonuses are considered miscellaneous income, and will be reportable to the IRS on Form 1099-MISC (or Form 1042-S, if applicable). This SoFi Checking and Savings Referral Offer cannot be combined with the SoFi Checking and Savings “account $20 open offer.” SoFi reserves the right to disqualify anyone from participation in the referral program at any time. SoFi reserves the right to change or terminate the offer at any time without notice.


General Terms and Conditions — Part II

Referral Cap

In no event will any person be entitled to receive more than $10,000 in cumulative referrals or welcome bonuses under these Referral Programs within any calendar year. In addition, SoFi reserves the right to, at any time, limit the maximum number of times a Referral Link can be used. Referral Bonuses and Welcome Bonuses are each considered miscellaneous income and may be reportable to the IRS on Form 1099-MISC (or Form 1042-S, if applicable).

Non-Solicitation Agreement

If you participate in any of the Invest Referral Program, Money Referral Program, or the Loan Referral Program described above (collectively, the “Referral Program(s)”), you agree not to participate in any other solicitations for SoFi products. Other than as set forth herein, you agree not to compensate or accept any compensation from applicants whom you refer to SoFi through any of the corresponding Referral Programs described above. You further agree that your activities will be limited to referring potential customers as described above, so they may independently decide whether to apply. You may not collect information from eligible recipients under any Referral Program, assist with filling out an application, or discuss specific product terms.

No Spam

You must comply with all applicable laws and regulations, in soliciting referrals. Eligible referrers may not purchase internet search terms or publicly advertise SoFi’s products or name in any fashion. Further, any distribution of a program link that could constitute unsolicited commercial email or “spam,” any content which impersonates or implies an affiliation with or endorsement by SoFi or any SoFi subsidiary, or any actions which otherwise violate any terms or conditions imposed by SoFi, or that SoFi determines in its sole discretion to be fraudulent in nature, are prohibited and will be grounds for immediate termination from a Referral Program. We will not honor referral payments for referrals which are generated using any of the foregoing means.

Independent Contractor

Your participation in a Referral Program is solely as an independent contractor. Neither you nor SoFi intend to establish an employment relationship, and you are not entitled to any benefits. We may require completion of a Form W-9 prior to payment of any referral or welcome bonus. Any payments that are not claimed within 180 days of the date the funds have been made available because either the direct deposit bank account or required tax information have not been provided are subject to forfeit.

Conflict

In the event any of the terms of these Terms of Service conflicts with any terms in a specific promotional campaign associated with a unique referral link, the terms of these Terms of Service shall govern.

Discontinuation of Previous Referral Program

The Referral Programs described herein replace all earlier versions of such SoFi referral programs. SoFi reserves the right to temporarily, or permanently modify or discontinue the Referral Programs at any time, for any reason, at our sole discretion and without notice to you.

10. SoFi Plus

Last Updated: July 8, 2024

SoFi Plus is a benefits program (“Benefits Program”) offered by Social Finance, LLC and its affiliates (collectively “SoFi”) that gives SoFi Plus members (“defined below”) the opportunity to take advantage of various benefits across the SoFi ecosystem.

(a) Eligibility:

(i) SoFi Plus members are defined as customers of SoFi Checking and Savings, which is offered by SoFi Bank, National Association, Member FDIC, who have Direct Deposit (defined below) into a SoFi Checking and Savings account. Direct Deposit means a recurring deposit of regular income to an account holder’s SoFi Checking or Savings account, including payroll, pension, or government benefit payments (e.g., Social Security), made by the account holder’s employer, payroll or benefits provider or government agency (“Direct Deposit”) via the Automated Clearing House (“ACH”) Network. Deposits that are not from an employer or government agency, including but not limited to check deposits, peer-to-peer transfers (e.g., transfers from PayPal, Venmo, etc.), merchant transactions (e.g., transactions from PayPal, Stripe, Square, etc.), and bank ACH funds transfers and wire transfers from external accounts, or are non-recurring in nature (e.g. IRS tax refunds), do not constitute Direct Deposit activity. SoFi Bank shall, in its sole discretion, assess each account holder’s Direct Deposit activity to determine eligibility and may require additional documentation to complete this verification. SoFi Plus member benefits will be lost during periods in which the customer has turned off Direct Deposit into their account. PLEASE NOTE: If you qualify for the higher annual percentage yield (“APY”) via Qualifying Deposits (as defined below), rather than Direct Deposit activity, you will NOT qualify for the other SoFi Plus benefits. Currently, the only way to qualify for all SoFi Plus benefits is with Direct Deposit.

(b) SoFi Plus member Benefits:

(i) 4.60% APY on savings:

SoFi members with direct deposit activity can earn 4.60% annual percentage yield (APY) on savings balances (including Vaults) and 0.50% APY on checking balances. Direct Deposit means a recurring deposit of regular income to an account holder’s SoFi Checking or Savings account, including payroll, pension, or government benefit payments (e.g., Social Security), made by the account holder’s employer, payroll or benefits provider or government agency (“Direct Deposit”) via the Automated Clearing House (“ACH”) Network during a 30-day Evaluation Period (as defined below). Deposits that are not from an employer or government agency, including but not limited to check deposits, peer-to-peer transfers (e.g., transfers from PayPal, Venmo, etc.), merchant transactions (e.g., transactions from PayPal, Stripe, Square, etc.), and bank ACH funds transfers and wire transfers from external accounts, or are non-recurring in nature (e.g., IRS tax refunds), do not constitute Direct Deposit activity. There is no minimum Direct Deposit amount required to qualify for the stated interest rate.

As an alternative to direct deposit, SoFi members with Qualifying Deposits can earn 4.60% APY on savings balances (including Vaults) and 0.50% APY on checking balances. Qualifying Deposits means one or more deposits that, in the aggregate, are equal to or greater than $5,000 to an account holder’s SoFi Checking and Savings account (“Qualifying Deposits”) during a 30-day Evaluation Period (as defined below). Qualifying Deposits only include those deposits from the following eligible sources: (i) ACH transfers, (ii) inbound wire transfers, (iii) peer-to-peer transfers (i.e., external transfers from PayPal, Venmo, etc. and internal peer-to-peer transfers from a SoFi account belonging to another account holder), (iv) check deposits, (v) instant funding to your SoFi Bank Debit Card, (vi) push payments to your SoFi Bank Debit Card, and (vii) cash deposits. Qualifying Deposits do not include: (i) transfers between an account holder’s Checking account, Savings account, and/or Vaults; (ii) interest payments; (iii) bonuses issued by SoFi Bank or its affiliates; or (iv) credits, reversals, and refunds from SoFi Bank, N.A. (“SoFi Bank”) or from a merchant.

SoFi Bank shall, in its sole discretion, assess each account holder’s Direct Deposit activity and Qualifying Deposits throughout each 30-Day Evaluation Period to determine the applicability of rates and may request additional documentation for verification of eligibility. The 30-Day Evaluation Period refers to the “Start Date” and “End Date” set forth on the APY Details page of your account, which comprises a period of 30 calendar days (the “30-Day Evaluation Period”). You can access the APY Details page at any time by logging into your SoFi account on the SoFi mobile app or SoFi website and selecting either (i) Banking > Savings > Current APY or (ii) Banking > Checking > Current APY. Upon receiving a Direct Deposit or $5,000 in Qualifying Deposits to your account, you will begin earning 4.60% APY on savings balances (including Vaults) and 0.50% on checking balances on or before the following calendar day. You will continue to earn these APYs for (i) the remainder of the current 30-Day Evaluation Period and through the end of the subsequent 30-Day Evaluation Period and (ii) any following 30-day Evaluation Periods during which SoFi Bank determines you to have Direct Deposit activity or $5,000 in Qualifying Deposits without interruption.

SoFi Bank reserves the right to grant a grace period to account holders following a change in Direct Deposit activity or Qualifying Deposits activity before adjusting rates. If SoFi Bank grants you a grace period, the dates for such grace period will be reflected on the APY Details page of your account. If SoFi Bank determines that you did not have Direct Deposit activity or $5,000 in Qualifying Deposits during the current 30-day Evaluation Period and, if applicable, the grace period, then you will begin earning the rates earned by account holders without either Direct Deposit or Qualifying Deposits until you have Direct Deposit activity or $5,000 in Qualifying Deposits in a subsequent 30-Day Evaluation Period. For the avoidance of doubt, an account holder with both Direct Deposit activity and Qualifying Deposits will earn the rates earned by account holders with Direct Deposit.

Members without either Direct Deposit activity or Qualifying Deposits, as determined by SoFi Bank, during a 30-Day Evaluation Period and, if applicable, the grace period, will earn 1.20% APY on savings balances (including Vaults) and 0.50% APY on checking balances.

Interest rates are variable and subject to change at any time. These rates are current as of 10/24/2023. There is no minimum balance requirement. Additional information can be found at http://www.sofi.com/legal/banking-rate-sheet.

(ii) Up to Two Day Early Paycheck in your SoFi Checkings and Savings account. Early access to Direct Deposit funds is based on the timing in which we receive notice of impending payment from the Federal Reserve, which is typically up to two days before the scheduled payment date, but may vary.

(iii) No Fee Overdraft Coverage for SoFi Plus members with at least $1,000 of Direct Deposits into a SoFi Checkings and Savings account during the 30-Day Evaluation Period. Overdraft Coverage is limited to $50 of coverage on SoFi Debit Card purchases only and does not apply to peer-to-peer transfers, bill payments, checks or other types of transactions. Members with a prior history of non-repayment of negative balances are ineligible for Overdraft Coverage.

(iv) Personal Loan Direct Deposit Discount Terms and Conditions:

To be eligible to potentially receive an additional (0.25%) interest rate reduction for setting up Direct Deposit with a SoFi Checking and Savings account offered by SoFi Bank, N.A. or eligible cash management account offered by SoFi Securities, LLC (“Direct Deposit Account”), you must have an open Direct Deposit Account within 30 days of the funding of your Loan. Once eligible, you will receive this discount during periods in which you have enabled payroll Direct Deposit of at least $1,000/month to a Direct Deposit Account in accordance with SoFi’s reasonable procedures and requirements to be determined at SoFi’s sole discretion. This discount will be lost during periods in which SoFi determines you have turned off Direct Deposit to your Direct Deposit Account. You are not required to enroll in Direct Deposit to receive a loan.

(v) Preferred access to IPOs offered in the SoFi Securities, LLC IPO Center. A SoFi Plus membership is one of many factors used to determine an investor’s allocation. Members enrolled in the program may have an increased chance of receiving a larger percentage of their indication than those who are not enrolled. New offers (IPOs) generally have high demand and there are a limited number of shares available. Having a SoFi Plus membership does not guarantee that you will be allocated the number of shares you requested in your Indication of Interest (IOI) or any shares at all. For SoFi’s allocation procedures please refer to IPO Allocation Procedures.

(vi) 3% Cash Back Rewards on SoFi Credit Card Purchases for 12 months on Your SoFi Credit Card:

You will need to receive a Direct Deposit every month into your SoFi Checking or Savings account in order to continue to receive this promotional cash back rewards rate. Direct Deposit means a deposit into an account holder’s SoFi Checking or Savings account, including payroll, pension, or government payments (e.g., Social Security), made by the account holder’s employer, payroll or benefits provider or government agency (“Direct Deposit”) via the Automated Clearing House (“ACH”) Network. Deposits that are not from an employer or government agency, including but not limited to check deposits, peer-to-peer transfers (e.g., transfers from PayPal, Venmo, etc.), merchant transactions (e.g., transactions from PayPal, Stripe, Square, etc.), and bank ACH funds transfers and wire transfers from external accounts, do not constitute Direct Deposit activity and do not qualify for this promotion. It may take up to 90 days for your Direct Deposit to be recognized, after which you will begin earning 3% cash back rewards. If you do not see your 3% cash back rewards benefit after 90 days, please contact our help center. A maximum of 36,000 rewards points can be earned from this limited-time offer. After the Promotion Period ends or once you have earned the maximum points offered by this promotion, your cash back rewards earning rate will revert back to 2%. 36,000 rewards points are worth $360 when redeemed toward active SoFi accounts, including but not limited to, your SoFi Checking or Savings account, SoFi Money® account, SoFi Active Invest account, SoFi Credit Card account, SoFi Personal Loan, Private Student Loan, Student Loan Refinance, or toward SoFi Travel purchases.

Promotion Period: The Program will be available from 4/5/22 12:01AM ET to 4/1/24 12:59 PM ET (the “Promotion Period”). SoFi reserves the right to exclude any Member from participating in the Program for any reason, including suspected fraud, misuse, or if suspicious activities are observed. SoFi also reserves the right to stop or make changes to the Program at any time.

Eligible Participants: All new members who apply and get approved for the SoFi Credit Card, open a SoFi Checking and Savings account, and receive a Direct Deposit into their SoFi Checking and Savings account during the Promotion Period are eligible. All existing SoFi Credit Card members who receive a Direct Deposit for the first time into their SoFi Checking & Savings account during the Promotion Period are eligible. For the avoidance of doubt, SoFi must receive the Direct Deposit prior to the end of the Promotion Period for a member to be eligible. All existing SoFi members who have already enrolled in Direct Deposit into a SoFi Checking & Savings account prior to the promotion period, and who apply and get approved for a SoFi Credit Card during the promotion period are eligible. Existing SoFi members who already have the SoFi Credit Card and previously set up Direct Deposit through SoFi Money or SoFi Checking & Savings are not eligible for this promotion. Offer limited to one per SoFi Checking & Savings account. In the case of a joint account, only the primary account holder (the member who signed up first) is eligible for the offer.

10% Boost on Cash Back Rewards Points for SoFi Credit Card Purchases: Members who meet the eligibility criteria shall earn a 10% boost on cash back rewards rates for all eligible purchases made with a SoFi Credit Card (the “Promotion”). A 10% boost means that a 10% multiplier shall be applied to existing cash back rewards rates (e.g. a purchase previously earning 100 rewards points would now earn 110 with the promotion). For purposes of calculating the 10% boost on cash back rewards points, each transaction shall be rounded to the nearest dollar, and fractional points shall be rounded to the nearest whole point. The 10% boost shall not apply to (i) transactions that are not eligible for cash back rewards points, including: fees or interest charges, balance transfers or cash advances, purchase of traveler’s checks or other cash equivalents, purchase or reloading of prepaid cards, or other quasi-cash transactions; or (ii) courtesy rewards points that are manually awarded. SoFi shall, in its sole discretion, determine whether a transaction is eligible to earn the 10% boost under this Promotion.

To be eligible for this Promotion, you must receive a Direct Deposit into your SoFi Checking or Savings account during the Promotion Period. You must receive a Direct Deposit during each 30-Day Evaluation Period (as defined below) to continue to receive the 10% boost. Direct Deposit means a recurring deposit of regular income to an account holder’s SoFi Checking or Savings account, including payroll, pension, or government benefit payments (e.g., Social Security), made by the account holder’s employer, payroll or benefits provider or government agency (“Direct Deposit”) via the Automated Clearing House (“ACH”) Network. Deposits that are not from an employer or government agency, including but not limited to check deposits, peer-to-peer transfers (e.g., transfers from PayPal, Venmo, etc.), merchant transactions (e.g., transactions from PayPal, Stripe, Square, etc.), and bank ACH funds transfers and wire transfers from external accounts, or are non-recurring in nature (e.g. IRS tax refunds), do not constitute Direct Deposit activity.

The 30-Day Evaluation Period refers to the “Start Date” and “End Date” set forth on the APY Details page of your account, which comprises a period of 30 calendar days (the “30-Day Evaluation Period”). You can access the APY Details page at any time by logging into your SoFi account on the SoFi mobile app or SoFi website and selecting either (i) Banking > Savings > Current APY or (ii) Banking > Checking > Current APY. Upon receiving a Direct Deposit to your account, you will begin earning the 10% boost on cash back rewards. You will continue to earn the 10% boost for (i) the remainder of the current 30-Day Evaluation Period and through the end of the subsequent 30-Day Evaluation Period and (ii) any following 30-day Evaluation Periods during which SoFi Bank determines you to have Direct Deposit activity without interruption. SoFi Bank reserves the right to grant a grace period to account holders following a change in Direct Deposit activity before terminating your 10% boost benefit. If SoFi Bank grants you a grace period, the dates for such grace period will be reflected on the APY Details page of your account. If SoFi Bank determines that you did not receive a Direct Deposit during the current 30-day Evaluation Period and, if applicable, the grace period, then you will no longer earn the 10% boost until you have Direct Deposit activity in a subsequent 30-Day Evaluation Period. In certain cases, it may take up to 90 days for your Direct Deposit to be recognized, after which you will begin earning the 10% boost on cash back rewards. If you do not see your 10% boost on cash back rewards benefit after 90 days, please contact our help center.

Promotion Period: The Promotion will begin on 4/1/24 at 1:00 PM ET. SoFi reserves the right to terminate or make changes to this Promotion at any time.

Eligible Participants: All new and existing SoFi Credit Card members who receive a Direct Deposit into their SoFi Checking or Savings account during the Promotion Period are eligible for this Promotion. You must receive a Direct Deposit during each 30-Day Evaluation Period to continue to receive the 10% boost. A member shall not earn the 10% boost under this Promotion if they are currently earning 3% cash back rewards points under the 3% Cash Back Rewards Promotion. If you currently benefit from the 3% Cash Back Rewards Promotion, then you will continue to earn 3% cash back rewards points until you are either no longer eligible or until the expiration of such benefit, as provided in the 3% Cash Back Rewards Promotion terms. Upon the expiration of your 3% cash back rewards points benefit, you will be eligible to earn the 10% boost under this Promotion, provided that you meet the eligibility criteria stated herein. Offer limited to one per SoFi Checking and Savings account. A SoFi Credit Card account will only benefit from the 10% boost under this Promotion if the primary SoFi Credit Card account holder receives a Direct Deposit into their SoFi Checking or Savings account (or, in the case of a joint Checking and Savings account, a joint account holder receives a Direct Deposit). SoFi reserves the right to exclude any member from participating in this Promotion for any reason, including suspected fraud, misuse, or if suspicious activities are observed.

(vii) Welcome bonus of up to $300:

The following describes the terms that apply to participation in the SoFi Checking and Savings direct deposit promotion (the “Direct Deposit Promotion”) offered by SoFi Bank, N.A, Member FDIC (“SoFi”).

Eligible Participants: All new and existing members without any history of direct deposit transactions into their SoFi Checking and Savings account are eligible for the Direct Deposit Promotion. Members who previously enrolled in direct deposit into either SoFi Money or SoFi Checking and Savings, whether currently still enrolled or not, do not qualify for this Direct Deposit Promotion. Bonuses are limited to one per SoFi Checking and Savings account. In the case of a joint account, only the primary account holder (the member who signed up first) is eligible for a bonus.

Promotion Period: The Direct Deposit Promotion will begin on 12/7/2023 at 12:01AM ET and end on 12/31/24 at 11:59PM ET.

Bonus Terms: In order to qualify for eligibility for a bonus, SoFi must receive at least one Direct Deposit (as defined below) from an Eligible Participant, the first of which must be before the end of the Promotion Period. Direct Deposit means a recurring deposit of regular income to an account holder’s SoFi Checking or Savings account, including payroll, pension, or government benefit payments (e.g., Social Security), made by the account holder’s employer, payroll or benefits provider or government agency (“Direct Deposit”) via the Automated Clearing House (“ACH”) Network. Deposits that are not from an employer or government agency, including but not limited to check deposits, peer-to-peer transfers (e.g., transfers from PayPal, Venmo, etc.), merchant transactions (e.g., transactions from PayPal, Stripe, Square, etc.), and bank ACH funds transfers and wire transfers from external accounts, or are non-recurring in nature (e.g. IRS tax refunds), do not constitute Direct Deposit activity. SoFi Bank shall, in its sole discretion, assess each account holder’s Direct Deposit activity to determine eligibility and may require additional documentation to complete this verification. The amount of the bonus, if any, will be calculated during the Direct Deposit Bonus Period as described and defined below.

Direct Deposit Bonus Period: The Direct Deposit Bonus Period begins when SoFi receives a Direct Deposit of $1 or more within the Promotion Period and ends 25 calendar days later (the “Direct Deposit Bonus Period”). For the avoidance of doubt, the Direct Deposit Bonus Period shall not extend beyond the Promotion Period. The bonus amount will vary based on the total amount of Direct Deposits received during the Direct Deposit Bonus Period. Once the Direct Deposit Bonus Period has elapsed, SoFi will determine if you have met the offer requirements and will deposit any earned bonus into your checking account within seven (7) business days. For example, if SoFi receives between $1,000.00 and $4,999.99 in Direct Deposits during the Direct Deposit Bonus Period, you will receive a one-time cash bonus of $50. A member may only qualify for one bonus tier and will not be eligible for future bonus payments if Direct Deposits subsequently increase after the Direct Deposit Bonus Period.

Total Direct Deposit Amount in Direct Deposit Bonus Period Cash Bonus Tier
$1.00 - $999.99 $0
$1,000.00 - $4,999.99 $50
$5,000.00 or more $300

Bonus Payment Timeline: SoFi will credit members who meet qualification criteria within seven (7) business days of the end of the Direct Deposit Bonus Period.

Bonuses are considered miscellaneous income and may be reportable to the IRS on Form 1099-MISC (or Form 1042-S, if applicable). SoFi reserves the right to exclude any Members from participating in the Direct Deposit Promotion for any reason, including suspected fraud, misuse, or if suspicious activities are observed. SoFi also reserves the right to stop or change the Direct Deposit Promotion at any time.

SoFi members with Direct Deposit can earn 4.60% annual percentage yield (APY) on savings balances (including Vaults) and 0.50% APY on checking balances. There is no minimum Direct Deposit amount required to qualify for the 4.60% APY for savings (including Vaults). Members without Direct Deposit will earn 1.20% APY on savings balances (including Vaults) and 0.50% APY on checking balances. Interest rates are variable and subject to change at any time. These rates are current as of 10/24/2023. There is no minimum balance requirement. Additional information can be found at http://www.sofi.com/legal/banking-rate-sheet.

(viii) 2x rewards points on qualifying activity: SoFi Plus members can earn double the rewards points as stated in the “Ways to earn” section of the “Membership & Rewards” page for qualifying earning activities during periods in which the SoFi Plus member has enabled Direct Deposit. The qualifying earning activities exclude the following: Credit or Debit card spend paid in rewards points, welcome bonuses paid in rewards points (including any referral bonuses paid in rewards points), and select promotions with bonuses paid in rewards points. The specific number of rewards points is subject to change at any time and can be found in the “Ways to earn” section of the “Membership & Rewards” page.
