Additional Slickdeals Rewards Bonus

Slickdeals is offering an additional $75 via Slickdeals Rewards Points when you open a new SoFi Checking and Savings account and fund the account with $125 or more after following the instructions below.


This Slickdeals Rewards Bonus is a new way to more accurately track your account opening bonuses with our partners. This differs from the Slickdeals Rebates Program and strives to solve many of the issues you may have encountered in the past. You can learn more about our new Slickdeals Rewards Program here.
  • No more submitting rebate forms or receipts.
  • Automated tracking of purchases and point statuses.
  • Faster payouts and easy redemption via paypal or giftcards.
Note: the $75 bonus will be sent to your Slickdeals Rewards account within 30 calendar days after you've installed the Slickdeals Shopping Assistant Browser Extension, Enroll in Slickdeals Rewards, and open & fund your new SoFi Checking and Savings Account.

Shortly after completing the steps below, two transactions listed as $0.00 may populate in your account history as "ineligible", but this does not mean you do not qualify for the bonus. SoFi typically takes about a week to clear your initial deposit, after which another line item will populate in your account with your deposit amount as "eligible" with pending points.


After your deposit clears, it can take 2-10 days to be visible in your account history. If 10 days pass after your deposit clears and it is not listed in your account history, please submit a support ticket and a team member will gladly assist you.

To qualify for the additional bonus, please follow these steps:
  • Step 1: Install the Slickdeals Shopping Assistant Browser Extension (if you don't already have it installed) and follow the SD Rewards Prompts here (PC or Laptop Only)
  • Step 2: Follow the additional prompts in the link above to ensure you're enrolled in SD Rewards and your account is registered/signed-in. You need to have an account to track and redeem your rewards.
  • Step 3: One you're logged into your Slickdeals account, click the the green Apply Now button, or the links at the top of the post, and open and fund your new SoFi Checking and Savings account. If you are in Classic view, click either of the links at the top of the thread. You must apply through the link on this page in order to receive the $75 bonus.
  • Step 4: Do not close the SoFi Checking and Savings window prior to confirming and funding your new account. Closing the window may make you ineligible for the $75 bonus.
    • NOTE: If you do NOT fund the account with the full $125 during this process, you may not receive the bonus. Please be sure to fully fund with at least $125 as soon as you open the account.
  • Step 5: Once you open and fund your new SoFi Checking and Savings account, you will be able to track your order here. You should expect to receive your $75 bonus via Slickdeals Rewards Points within 30 calendar days of funding your account
  • IMPORTANT NOTE: In order for us to give you credit for your purchases you must disable ad blockers or whitelist the Slickdeals Extension. Also, if you use other cashback or coupon extensions, only the one you use last will get credit for your purchase, so if you want your Slickdeals Rewards points, please remember not to activate other extensions while shopping.
The $75 bonus offer is provided solely by Slickdeals and is unrelated to any benefits or offers provide by SoFi. SoFi is not responsible for the $75 bonus.

Slickdeals is pleased to make this offer available to you. Please follow the instructions carefully to help avoid any processing issues.

This is a trap, u won't get the cashback
Never even try slickdeal cash back rebate.
How long does the account have to stay open?

you only get 30 days from your first direct deposit to when the 5,000 (total) direct deposit must be done to qualify for $300
--The Evaluation Period is defined as 30 days from the date your first Qualifying Direct Deposit is received. For example, if you receive $1,000-$1,999 in Qualifying Direct Deposits in the Evaluation Period, you will receive a cash bonus of $50. A member may only qualify for one bonus tier and will not be eligible for future bonus payments if inflows subsequently increase beyond the Evaluation Period.

Direct Deposits are defined as deposits from enrolled member's employer, payroll, or benefits provider via ACH deposit. Deposits that are not from an employer (such as check deposits; P2P transfers such as from PayPal or Venmo, etc.; merchant transactions such as from PayPal, Stripe, Square, etc.; and bank ACH transfers not from employers) do not qualify for this promotion

Applied yesterday following instructions to the dots. When I go to track, it doesn't show up but that page says it can take between 2 and 10 days for recent orders to show up. We'll see I guess.

Update:
After two days, SD is showing my order as pending with 7500 points and the correct amount I funded.

Update 2:
Was able to redeem $70 (not $75) today as $70 is the max redeemable amount and goes in increments of $10. no big deal. I will have the balance here. Happy with my experience so far. Neat way to get some free money. Thanks SD!

Hey everyone, I just opened my accounts. Slickdeals did a great job explaining the process. However my experience was still a disaster. The problem is I only have Discover banking now. And I got major issue at the funding process because of that. First, the instant funding option SoFi provides only support master or visa debit card so my Discover debit card was a no go there. Then, their second option is to connect your current bank account to fund and SoFi utilizes Plaid for that. But!!! Plaid is having issue connecting Discover bank and it's reporting an outage. So I am still not able to fund my new SoFi account yet. I did save tons of screenshot to back up what I have been through. However at this point I really doubt I am getting my $75 slickdeals money since the funding obviously didn't work out during the process of opening the account and Slickdeals instruction clearly states the funding has to happen during the account opening process. Well, I chatted with SoFi support and they insist their agreement with Slickdeals is to fund the new account within 2 weeks, which I also have screenshot of. So we will see. I do want to mention that if there is not a Plaid outage for Discover bank, my experience would be 5 stars.

This sounds like a great deal but ya I'm not counting on the Slickdeals rebate from everything I have read.

I just started with SOFI invest and it seems pretty legit. They have a deal where if you do a recurrent deposit of min $50 you'll essentially get $0.50. That equates to 1% back just to depositing money which seems like the real slickdeal to me.

You can keep withdrawing and depositing the same $50 without limits?

I just get a application declined with the vague statement that they cannot verify my information. I checked with Experian and all the information are up to date. Their customer support is just as useless and have no idea why it they cannot verify my application information.

Unless you are writing a high frequency script, this is not worth anyone's time. Percentage is one thing. But dollar amount matters too.

Didn't the SoFi founder delay meetings with wework multiple times before finally going to their HQ and investing 4.4B? Surprised SoFi is still solvent.
