Hey Cash App-ers!

Check this out…

Cash App recently added a new “Round Up” feature to their app allowing you to easily invest in stocks or Bitcoin.

Worrying about setting aside money to invest in that stock or bitcoin is now a thing of the past.

Cash App will set that money aside FOR you and for the most part, you won’t even notice since the amounts are tiny.

And…

If you use your Cash App card frequently enough, the amount you’re investing will grow QUICKLY.

Pretty COOL – huh? I thought so too.

But…

How do Cash App Round Ups work and what else do you need to know when using them?

In this post, I’ll show you EVERYTHING you need to know about Cash App Round Ups including how to withdraw what you’ve earned.

How Do Cash App Round Ups Work?

Cash App Round Ups work when you make purchases using your Cash App card (aka “Cash Card”).

The transaction amounts using your Cash App card are “rounded-up” to the nearest dollar amount.

Those round-ups are then AUTOMATICALLY invested in either bitcoin or a stock of your choice.

It doesn’t get much EASIER.

This, of course, means that you NEED to have a Cash App card in order to use Round Ups.

If you don’t, I show you how to get one later in this post.

The amount of each transaction is rounded-up to the nearest dollar amount.

For example…

If you purchase something using your Cash App card for $5.40, $.60 will automatically be added to the transaction total and invested into either buying stock or bitcoin (whichever you choose when setting things up).

These Round Ups will show up in your account (as purchased stock or bitcoin) once your transaction has cleared – typically in 1 to 3 business days.

Are There Fees When Using Cash App Round Ups?

There are no direct fees when using Cash App Round Ups.

However…

There typically ARE fees when you go to withdraw the Round Ups you’ve earned (aka sell your stock or bitcoin).

Below I show you how to go about withdrawing/selling what you’ve earned from your Round Ups.

It’s WAY easier than it probably sounds.
