Introducing the Apollo Stock-Rewards Card

With inflation reaching a 40 year high just a few months ago, we've all experienced the very real pain of watching our rent, gas, and food bills rise over the last 18 months. Because of this, it's as important as ever for people to take control of their finances and make sure they are investing for their future. That's why we're thrilled to officially announce the launch of the Apollo Stock-Rewards debit card - a one of a kind card designed to help you fight inflation and build long-term wealth.

Here's How It Works

Unlike most debit cards, which offer zero rewards, Apollo offers a new class of rewards points - real shares of stock. For every purchase made with your card, you receive a guaranteed percentage back in a stock of your choice. There's no limit to how much stock you can earn. Watch your stocks grow in value over time or easily sell them for cash whenever you want. This makes it easier than ever to start investing in the stock market.

Keeping It Fun

In addition to the guaranteed stock rewards, we wanted even more ways for you to build wealth with your Apollo card. That's why we came up with Stock Packs - an exciting way for you to grow your investments even faster. Every pack contains a random amount of stock valued between $3 and $1,000. Whenever you make a purchase with your card, you'll earn points that can be redeemed for packs.

Frequently Asked Question

Is my money safe in Apollo?

Yes. When you deposit money into your Apollo account the funds are held in an FDIC insured checking account at our partner bank Piermont Bank, Member FDIC.

Is Apollo free to use?

Yes. We offer both a free basic rewards plan as well as a paid subscription plan with premium benefits.

How do you make money?

Every time you make a purchase with your card we generate a small amount of revenue from what's known as interchange fees. We pass all of this revenue back to you in the form of rewards. We also make money from paid subscriptions to our premium rewards plan.

What's Next

This is just the beginning for us. Here's some of what you can expect in the future:

- More ways to earn stock with your Apollo debit card
- Buy stocks & ETFs
- Earn stock as APY on your uninvested cash
