  4. Receive the reward.

In this blog post, I’ll explore some simple steps to help you get $10 on the popular payment app.

What You’re Going To Need

To be eligible for the reward, you would typically need to meet the following requirements:

  • Stable internet connection
  • Valid Venmo account
  • Bank account information
  • Personal details 

Once you have met these requirements and the payment has been verified, the $10.00 reward will be sent to your valid account. 

Step 1: Sign Up For Venmo

First things first, you need to sign up for Venmo! But before that, make sure you have a stable internet connection for that. Then, follow the steps below. 

  • Download the app on your smartphone. Venmo is available for iOS and Android devices. So you can download the app from the App Store or Google Play Store. If you prefer to use Venmo on your computer, no worries. Simply navigate to the Venmo website on your web browser. 
  • Then, you will need to enter your personal information. This includes your name, email address, and phone number. You may also be asked to provide your birth date and the last four digits of your social security number to verify your identity. Venmo takes security very seriously and requires this information to protect your account.
  • You must also enter your promo code in the app upon signup when required.
  • After entering your personal deets, you must create a username and password for your Venmo account. Your username will be visible to other Venmo users, so choose something you are comfortable with. 

Voila! Now, you’re one step closer to that sweet, sweet reward.

Tip: Your password should be unique and strong to prevent unauthorized access to your account. You may also be prompted to set up two-factor authentication to provide an additional layer of security for your account. Also, read the terms and conditions for any eligibility requirements or restrictions.

Step 2: Link a Payment Method

Once you’ve signed up for Venmo, you need to link a payment method to your account. This can be a bank account or debit card, and it must be a valid payment method linked to your name.

To link a payment method to your Venmo account, follow the steps below:

  • Open the app and tap on the “☰” icon in the top-left corner of the screen. 
  • From there, select “Settings” and then “Payment Methods.” 
  • Next, tap “Add Bank or Card” and follow the prompts to enter your payment information.

If you’re adding a bank account, you’ll need to provide your account and routing number. If you’re adding a debit card, you’ll need to enter the card number, expiration date, and CVV.

After you’ve added your payment method, Venmo will need to verify it. This is to ensure that you’re the rightful owner of the payment method and that it’s valid. Venmo will provide instructions on verifying your payment method, which can vary depending on the payment method you’ve added.

For example, if you’ve added a bank account, Venmo will send two small deposits to your account. You’ll need to log in to your bank account and enter the amounts of the deposits in Venmo to verify the account. 

If you’ve added a debit card, Venmo may require you to enter a code sent via text message to the phone number linked to the card.

Once your payment method has been verified, you’re ready for the next step. 

Tip: Venmo may charge a fee for certain transactions, such as sending money using a credit card. Be sure to review Venmo’s fee schedule to understand any potential charges.

Step 3: Complete the Payment

To make a payment using your Venmo account, you’ll need a valid payment method linked to your account. 

To make a payment using Venmo, do the following:

  • Open the app and tap on the “☰” icon in the top-left corner of the screen. 
  • From there, select “Pay or Request” and enter the username, phone number, or email address of the person you want to send money to. 
  • Next, enter the amount you want to send, ensure it’s at least $5.00, and add a note to let the recipient know what the payment is for. 
  • Finally, tap on “Pay” to complete the payment.

After you’ve made the payment, Venmo will process it and verify that your payment method has enough funds to cover the transaction. If everything checks out, the payment will be completed, and the recipient will receive a notification that they’ve received the money.

Tip: Note that Venmo may take some time to process payments, especially if it’s your first payment using the app.

Step 4: Receive the Reward

Once the payment you’ve made using your Venmo account has been successfully completed and verified by Venmo, $10.00 will be sent to your valid account as a reward. 

Remember, it’s crucial that the payment method you used to make the payment is linked to your name and is in good standing. Otherwise, the reward may not be sent.

 Once the payment has been completed and verified by Venmo, the reward should be received within a reasonable timeframe, typically within 10 to 14 days

Tip: If you’ve completed a payment and haven’t received your reward within a reasonable timeframe, you should contact Venmo’s customer support team for assistance. They can help you identify any issues with your account or payment method and ensure that the reward is sent to your account.
