How do I get my cash rewards?
Your cash rewards are automatically deposited into your Schwab One account that is linked to your Schwab Bank Invest First card at the end of each month. If you provided your Schwab One account number when you applied for your card, we will link that brokerage account to your credit card.
If you applied for a Schwab One brokerage account at the same time you applied for the Schwab Bank Invest First card online or by phone, these accounts will be linked.
If you opened a Schwab One account separately from your credit card, you will need to link the two accounts. To add, change, or confirm your linked Schwab One account, please log in to schwab.com/creditcard and access your Schwab Bank Invest First account.

Your monthly Schwab Bank Invest First card statement will show the amount of Points earned for each billing period and year-to-date. The cash reward is equivalent to 2% of the Points earned. Your monthly Schwab One statement will show any cash rewards deposited into that account and be displayed as "Schwab Cash Back Rewards". You can also go online to view your cash rewards deposited on schwab.com: Log in to your Schwab One brokerage account and view the Account tab.
If my cash rewards are not deposited into my linked Schwab One Account, what should I do?

If I close my credit card account, what happens to my cash rewards?
