Robinhood Cash Rewards

Who is eligible?

This promotion is not available to the general public. In order to be eligible to receive a cash reward, you must be a direct recipient of the original email from Robinhood.

How much can you earn?

Your cash reward will be based on your net deposits. Net deposits are the total amount of all initiated deposits from March 15–March 28, 2021 minus canceled deposits or withdrawals from March 15–April 4, 2021. Simply: it’s the money you put in minus the money you take out through the above dates.

Reward tiers:

  • $10 for $200-$999
  • $25 for $1,000-$2,499
  • $50 for $2,500-$4,999
  • $100 for $5,000-$14,999
  • $250 for $15,000+
Keep in mind

While your deposit match cash reward can’t be withdrawn for 60 days after the reward is granted, you can still use it to invest.

When to expect your reward?

Corresponding cash rewards will be automatically deposited from April 5-April 9, 2021.


The funds you receive through the deposit match program will be reported as miscellaneous income in your 1099-MISC form. Because of IRS minimum earnings requirements, you may not receive a 1099-MISC form if your deposit-matched funds and any other funds (i.e. stock reward funds) are valued at less than $600.

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