Hello, M1 Spend

White M1 debit card over blue background

It’s a strange time to be releasing a new product, but we’re proud of this one. M1 Spend is out of beta. It’s now a full-fledged, ready-to-be-kicked-out-of-the-beta-nest product. We feel like proud parents whose kid just graduated from school.

What does “out of beta” mean? In addition to consolidating your day-to-day money management needs with your investing activities, it means all this:

1. You can sign up for M1 Spend now

Just log in to your M1 Invest account and click on Spend in the app or website. You’ll even get a sharp-looking new M1 Spend VISA® debit card in the mail shortly after that.

2. High-yield checking available

If you are an M1 Plus member, you can make 1% APY* on cash in Spend. That’s 100x better than many big banks.

The M1 Spend with M1 Plus APY is one of the highest digital checking rates around. You can make more at this rate in 4 days than many of the rates offered by big banks for a full year. See for yourself:

3. Cash back available

You get 1% cash back on qualified purchases with Spend when you are an M1 Plus member. The more you use Spend as an M1 Plus member, the more cash you get back. Check out what that could add up to over a month and a year with common categories:

4. And an extra perk

This summer, we’re doubling the cash back for M1 Plus members to 2% cash back on qualified purchases for the months of June and July. (See offer details and limitations).

Thanks for learning about Spend and thanks for trusting us to help you manage and grow your money!

*No minimum balance to open account. No minimum balance to obtain APY (annual percentage yield). APY valid from account opening. Fees may reduce earnings. Rates may vary.

M1 Plus subscription lasts one year. At the end of the annual period, M1 will automatically renew your Plus subscription unless you cancel. By signing up, you agree to renew at the standard rate of $125 unless otherwise indicated.  

If you are approved for an M1 Plus Spend checking account, your membership will be activated immediately and you’ll see your member perks in your M1 app. If approved, you can request your debit card and start using M1 Spend.
