Robinhood Gold Boosted APY

Who's eligible for the boosted APY?

Only direct recipients of the original promotion from Robinhood are eligible for this limited-time offer. The offer is not available to the general public. This offer is only available in non-retirement brokerage accounts at Robinhood. Only Robinhood customers who aren’t currently signed up for Robinhood Gold and haven’t been subscribed to Gold from February 29, 2024 at 12:00:00 AM PT to May 23, 2024 at 11:59:59 PM PT are eligible for this limited-time offer.

How do I qualify?

In order to earn a 0.25% APY boost for 60 days, you must be a direct recipient of the original promotion, and you must sign up for Robinhood Gold between May 1, 2024 at 12:00:00 AM PT and May 23, 2024 at 11:59:59 PM PT, and enroll in the Cash Sweep Program. Any uninvested cash in your account will then earn a 0.25% boost on top of the standard Gold APY rate for 60 days after you sign up.

What will happen after the 60 days of boost is over?

After you have received a total of 60 days of the boosted rate, you will begin receiving the standard Gold APY rate. The standard Gold APY rate as of May 1, 2024 is 5.00% APY.

The 60 days of boosted rate may not be consecutive, and the boost could be temporarily paused due to market conditions. If your boosted rate is paused, you will temporarily receive the standard Gold APY rate until the boost resumes, and then you will resume receiving the boosted rate until you have received the boosted rate for a total of 60 days. You will then begin receiving the standard Gold APY rate.

Taxes

The funds you receive through this offer will be reported as interest income in your 1099-INT form. Because of IRS minimum earnings requirements, you may not receive a 1099-INT form if your interest payments received during the calendar year are less than $10.

As with all tax forms, you’ll be able to download a consolidated 1099 form (which includes the 1099-INT) starting in mid-February of every year for the prior tax year. If you have questions about your specific tax situation, please consult with your tax professional.
