+5 Deal Score
4,482 Views
Out of the blue, got an email from Venmo to claim $5. I am not a power user at all, rarely used the site to transer friends/family. It has to be ymmv.
Glad I didn't miss the email.
I was able to claim the $5 and immediately transfer to my bank account.

Got the email. Used Venmo once, years back then never again.

Looks like they're trying to reel back in infrequent users probably because no one is hanging out anymore so no ones using Venmo!

College kids are at home! Lol.

Just got the email a few minutes ago, hadn't logged into Venmo for at least 2 years. The $5 was added a minute or two after signing in.

You can do it from a mobile browser fyi, doesn't have to be via the app. Just refresh the page and you'll have $5 in your balance.

It seems that you can withdraw to your bank if you want to, haven't tried it yet though.

That would the first time I received an equivalent to cash from a promotion.

Venmo has to be hurting. I know personally I only ever used it when splitting restaurant bills (i.e.- one person picks up the bill and everyone else sends what they owe to them). Obviously that's not happening any longer.

I can confirm on back transfer. I already got the $5 in my checking account.

No doubt. Not only Venmo, Restaurants, Salons, mall kiosks and 100s of people around us who works there.

peer to peer payment systems are hurting across the board, but paypal is doing well b/c they have integrated themselves into eCommerce more so than Venmo

i've used Venmo twice in my entire life. once when a family member couldn't give me the cash b/c of the $300 ATM limit, and once when a friend bought a gaming computer from me and same issue running into the $300 ATM limit. other than that, no need to ever use Venmo nor do i want to ever have to use Venmo. you should never use Venmo for Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace. and the easiest way to avoid Venmo, is to just pay for things yourself or bring cash. when i go out, i go to the ATM down the street which allows me to choose denominations of $1, $5, $10, $20, or $50. i type in $39 withdrawal which spits out a $20, $10, $5, and (5) $1's. that is all i need to pay anyone back for a split bill. and it also controls my spending when going out (which isn't happening these days anyways, so again a moot point).

i got the $5.00 promotional email from Venmo probably b/c they want me to use the service more. so i transferred out the $5.00 to my linked checking account and will go back to ignoring that this service even exists
