SoFi Money has been pushing to become a mainstay in travelers’ wallets with a new debit card offering no ATM fees or foreign transaction fees worldwide. It gets even sweeter, with a $50 sign-up bonus and $50 for each friend you refer.

And now there’s a new partnership to save you money on Lyft.

Our friends at The Flight Deal just shared SoFi Money’s new partnership with Lyft, and it’s a pretty sweet deal. You’ll get 20% cashback on all Lyft rides between now and Feb. 18, 2020 when you pay with SoFi Money. It’s time to link your SoFi Money account you use for travel to your Lyft account and earn 20% back!

Thrifty Tip: Don’t have SoFi Money yet? Save during your travels by taking out foreign currency abroad with no ATM fees and no foreign transaction fees worldwide. It’s free to sign up and get the SoFi debit card. 


What is SoFi Money?

SoFi Money boasts a fee-free online account service. Here are all of the perks that come along with a SoFi account:

  • No account fees
  • ATM fees reimbursed worldwide
  • No foreign transaction fees
  • No overdraft fees
  • No hard credit pull when you apply
  • Transfer money via mobile from major U.S. banks or check deposit
  • $50 sign up bonus when you deposit $100 or more

To make sure you get the $50 sign up bonus, here is what you need to do:

  1. Use a referral link, the only way to get the bonus.
  2. Sign up for a checking account
  3. Deposit $100
  4. A $50 bonus will be deposited into your account in 1-2 days!
  5. Refer friends and family and earn $50 for each referral!

Use our referral link to get $50! (we earn $50 too.)

Once you have a SoFi Money account, you can earn $50 for every single friend, family member, or that coworker a few offices down you refer after you sign up for an account. This is a no-brainer and the $50 cash posts within 24 hours of the approved referral. The $50 referral link is in your profile within the SoFi phone app. Read more about setting up your SoFi Money account.
