Adding a payment method for your E-Gift Rewards Balance:
There are two different ways you can fund your account. The first is via adding a bank account for ACH, which is what we recommend because it allows you to have dollar for dollar rewarding and spending inside the application.
In the image above, you can see that the two options are to add a credit card or bank account.
Adding a Bank Account:
When you first add a bank account you will be sent two micro-deposits to your account. You will use these two micro-deposits to verify your account. See below.
Once your bank account is verified you can begin adding funds to your E-Gift Rewards Balance. Your first deposit through your bank account will be limited to $500. Once that clears(about 5-6 business days), the next deposit is limited to $2,500, and then after that the max deposit becomes $10,000.
Adding a Credit Card:
The second method is via credit card. This might be a little easier, but in the long run, also more costly because those big shot card companies want a cut of your money too. There is a 3.5% surcharge fee for all credit card transactions.
If you choose to use a credit card, you'll be met with the typical fields for card payments.
Keep in mind that once you add a card, it takes 24-hours to fund.
If you wish to manually add a deposit at any time, click the dollar icon by the card and enter the amount. Your first deposit is limited to $250. Once that clears (immediately) and after 24 hours, that limit goes to $500 and then to $2500.
We suggest you set auto-funding rules to your credit card or bank account by clicking the pencil button once you have added your funding source. This will make it so that an automatic deposit when your balance gets below your set your set rules. There can only be one funding source in the system that has auto-funding rules.
If you don't set auto-funding rules you can set a 'Balance Warning' notification. You will be sent an email once your balance reaches a certain level. This will function only if no auto-funding rules are in effect. (So you don't get confused) We recommend enabling this if you aren't using auto-funding rules.
