Yonda Card

(John Biondini) #1

I came across this new prepaid card called Yonda. I believe they just launched and I can’t find any news/review. https://www.yondacard.com
The cashback feature looks good although I can’t see any pricing structure. :roll_eyes:

From their website:
" Money you look forward to spending
With Yonda, you save—and earn—as you spend.
This isn’t about cashback. We’re all about looking forward.
Paying with Yonda means you coin in towards whatever you
love most in life. Like those jeans you can’t stop thinking about. Or that next bowl of game-changing ramen.
Earn the money you look forward to spending, with Yonda."

Who wrote the copy for that website?! :joy:

No fees apparently - makes it easier to “bring your Y game” as per the FAQs.

What fees do you charge for using Yonda? Absolutely nada. That’s right—you won’t be charged a thing to get or use your Yonda card. We reckon bringing your Y game is a lot easier when you keep things simple.

Some poor sod tasked with making something worse than cashback seem better.

It doesn’t specify withdraws and abroad fees. Not sure.

Have you been able to find a list of retailers?

It looks like the parent company has ties with many retailers through gift cards but I cannot find a list.

The cashback looks quite interesting, but from the Google Play description:

Why pay to save money? We’ll send you your card for free. And, once you’ve activated it, you can start coining it in. Keep using your card and it won’t cost you a penny.

Which sort of suggests to me there is going to be inactivity fees.

If this is the case, while technically what they have written is true, it almost seems that FAQ answer was designed to mislead potential customers.

Jeez. Written by someone who has experienced precisely nothing in their lifetime.

I hate to break it to you Gen Y, but ramen is not actually the pinnacle of human achievement.

I had some incredible vegan ramen in downtown Mountain View. I’m convinced Google sent some culinary engineers there to hack the recipe for optimum taste.

It’s been famous for many years as the food of choice of poor students in the US and UK, since it’s very very cheap, and very very easy to make.

(But it’s also an incredible dish in native Japan)
