How It Works
Cash Management is offered as part of your brokerage account, and lets you use Robinhood Financial¹ for everyday transactions like investing, spending, and saving. Your uninvested cash is swept to our network of program banks where it starts earning 2.05% annual percentage yield (APY)². With Cash Management, you request a customized debit card³ that’s offered by Sutton Bank.
Keep in mind that the 2.05% APY is as of October 8, 2019 and can change at any time at the discretion of the program banks⁴.
Here’s what you get for free with Cash Management:
Access to Cash Management through your existing brokerage account is currently limited. Roll out will begin soon. We believe it’s worth the wait.
Anyone can join the waitlist, even if you haven't used Robinhood before. Please keep in mind that you will have to have an approved brokerage account with us before you can upgrade to Cash Management once you’re off the waitlist. Until you have successfully opened a brokerage account with us and received a confirmation that you have activated the Cash Management feature, you will not earn interest on uninvested cash, or have access to the debit card.
If you already have a brokerage account through Robinhood Financial, you can join the list by either:
Going to the tab with the card icon in your app and tapping “Join the Waitlist”.
If you don’t have a brokerage account through Robinhood Financial yet, you can join the waitlist by either:
Downloading the Robinhood app and tapping the “Cash Management” card at the top of the welcome screen and then tapping “Join the Waitlist” on the next screen.
Next, choose the debit card design you want, and then you’ll see your spot in line.
You’ll get a free debit card issued by Sutton Bank when you sign up for Cash Management and you can pick from 4 beautiful designs:
Pick the debit card design of your choice when joining the waitlist. If you change your mind, you’ll get a final chance to confirm or change it once you get off the waitlist. Choose wisely—after that point you’ll be locked into whichever design you pick!
There are no commitments involved in joining the waitlist. We’ll send you an email when you’re off the waitlist, and you can get started with as little as one cent in your brokerage account.
We’ll start rolling out Cash Management soon. When your invite to sign up is ready, you’ll get an email and push notification from Robinhood.
