PerkStreet Financial 5% Cash Back

by Andy Hough on June 28, 2010 · 4 comments

Since my apartment takes debit cards but not credit cards for rent payments using this card could earn me a sweet amount of cash back each year. I’m sure you can probably come up with other scenarios where using this card could provide you with some great cash back. This is the only debit card I know of that is competitive with cash back credit cards.

Correction: it’s UP to 5% cash back; the general cash back % is 1 to 2%.

That would be a clarification rather than a correction. Everything in the post is correct. Thanks for the clarification.

Paying your rent through debit is a great idea – I really wish my landlord would get with the times!

For further clarification:
If your account balance is over $5,000, you get 2% cash back on your non-PIN debit card purchases.

If your account balance is less than that, you still get 1% cash back on your non-PIN debit card purchases.

The first three months of your account, no matter what your balance is, you get 2% cash back.

In addition to this, we’ll be announcing deals from time to time where you can save up to 5% in various retail categories. Today, for example, is Chocolate Day (like I needed an excuse to fill my desk drawer with truffles) and we’re offering 5% cash back on any non-PIN debit card purchases made in a candy store. We’ll be announcing our deals on our blog (, on our Facebook page ( and on Twitter (

Thanks for the mention, and enjoy your perks!

Thanks for the further clarification. Maybe I should have included that in the post but since it is all there on the Perk Street site I didn’t see a need. This is a great cash back amount for a debit card.
