How do I earn Rewards with Local Deals with my MoneyLion Card?

Before you can start earning rewards through Local Deals, you will need to make sure to have activated your MoneyLion Visa Debit Card and made a first purchase on it. You will also need to link your card to our Rewards program in the MoneyLion app.

One that is done, simply find local deals near you in the Rewards section of the app and pay using your MoneyLion Visa Debit card at the participating merchant of your choice. 

Important! If you're using your debit card, you must swipe it like a credit card to receive your Cashback Rewards points. Otherwise, the transaction goes directly to your bank and not to the credit card companies that MoneyLion is linked with (MasterCard and American Express). 

To run a debit card as credit, don’t use the the chip reader and PIN. Select credit and swipe the card like a credit card, or ask the cashier to do so. When online, select credit when you check out. 

If you have just linked your card, allow a day or two to ensure that they have been registered with the network. Otherwise, this may result in not receiving your Rewards for that transaction.
