When you use your Wealthsimple Cash card, you will automatically receive 1% cash back on all eligible purchases.
You can also choose to earn stock or crypto back instead. With crypto back, you can opt to have cash back rewards auto-invested in the cryptocurrency of your choice.
If you choose to auto-invest your rewards, you are instructing Wealthsimple Digital Assets Inc. (“WDA”) to automatically treat each earned reward as an order to buy the selected cryptocurrency at the market price, including Wealthsimple Crypto’s 1.5-2% fee, in the amount of the cash reward proceeds.
Earn stock or crypto back
Instead of earning cash back to your Cash account, you can choose one of the following options:
- Add the rewards to the cash balance of your stock trading account
- Add the rewards to the cash balance of your crypto trading account
- Add the rewards to the cash balance of your managed account
- Auto-purchase the cryptocurrency of your choice in your crypto trading account

- Sign in to the Wealthsimple app on your mobile device
- Tap the Home tab at the bottom of your screen
- Select your Cash account

- Tap Manage rewards
- Choose the account you wish your rewards to go to (if applicable)
- Your cashback will now be added to your account
Some things to keep in mind
Cash back rewards can take up to 7 business days to settle in a crypto trading account, however they will normally appear after 1 business day.
During this time, you’ll see the status as Pending within your transaction details. Once the funds have settled, the crypto order will begin to process. At this point, the status will show Settled. Once your rewards have settled, it will normally take 2 business days for your order to complete.
Your app will send a push notification once the buy has occurred, and the status of the transaction will update to say Complete.
