[UPDATE 2/23: A few people have reported that after signing up, Flint has followed up with them via email after requesting a ton of personal information and wanting to pull their credit report. I personally wouldn’t want to give this information out for a relatively small amount of MS.]
[UPDATE: Some folks are reporting that Flint sends out 1099-K tax forms for the payments processed (and their Terms and Conditions state so as well). As usual, if you’re not comfortable, don’t do it!]
Several weeks ago I signed up for a new mobile payment app, Flint . My experience was positive overall and resulted in $3750 in manufactured spending for about 30 minutes of work.
After that I was guided through the sign-up process that had me enter basic information about myself and the bank account I wanted my money transferred to.
The following day my account was verified. Each week since signing up I have ran a single charge for $750 by taking a picture of the credit card I wanted to use. I used my to manufacture 18,750 points for free, and the $750 was deposited into my bank account within two days each time.
The first 5 transactions are free and you are limited to $750 per transaction, so the maximum MS value you can get with this method is $3,750. The free transactions expire after 30 days, so make sure you use them before that.
