“Starting on 4/30/2018, the SavingStar payout minimum will move from $5 to $20. If you have over $5 in your account now and would like to take it out before this change takes place, please do so by 4/29/2018.
Please be assured that this change will not remove any funds from your account balance. It will only affect the amount at which you can request a payout.”
that’s goofy for them to be matching the Ibotta threshold. i rack up more rebates in one week with Ibotta than in 2-3 months with SavingStar. i wonder if the recent rising interest rates have anything to do with the change; the longer your spare money is tied up with them, the more they can earn by putting it in a bank account. (or if SavingStar had been _borrowing_ money from banks, an effective 0% interest loan from customers beats whatever they’d pay.)
