In the past, hitting minimum debit and credit transaction requirements was easy. You'd simply buy a few Amazon gift cards and be on your way.
Since then, the minimum has gone up from $0.15 to $0.50 to now $1. It's not a big increase, but it's still an increase. Not to mention clicking through Amazon's checkout 10-15 times a month and then applying the gift cards to your account, takes a while!
Fortunately, there's an even easier way to hit your debit and credit transaction requirements and it takes significantly less time!
The answer to your transaction woes is: Square Cash.
With Square Cash, you're able to send a minimum of $1 to anyone using Cash for free with a valid debit card (sorry no gift cards). And what's particularly nice about Square Cash is that you can make 10-15 transactions within just a minute or two. It's that fast!
You can even send money with a credit card on Square Cash, however, there is a 3% transaction fee for those.
As with every type of manufactured spending, there are risks. Here are the risks of using Square Cash manufacture minimum credit and debit card transactions:
I've been using Square Cash to hit these spending requirements for well over a year now and I have yet to have any of the above happen to me. However, it's important to be aware of the risks.
Like any manufactured spending method, Square Cash isn't perfect, but in my experience it is pretty close! I can usually knock out all of my monthly minimum transactions in a matter of minutes (across a few days, because of my debit card limits) and I can do it whenever I have free time via my phone.
