Question about Fidelity Amex card

Postby am » Thu Nov 22, 2012 11:34 am

I have enough points for a redemption about $100 dollars worth. When I went to the rewards center, I added my investment account. Said something about reduced rewards if deposited to a savings or checking account. Is there a money market attached to the investment account? Do you redeem your rewards to the checking account Fidelity provides with this account?

Mine goes into my "cash"/sweep/money market account at Fidelity automatically. If you set it to auto-deposit you don't even have to wait for $100 to accumulate, I get $30-200/month deposited.

I just have them send me a check when it reaches $250 in rewards to get them at 2% level. No Fidelity account or other account needed.

Wow, that's good to know. I was doing it manually.

Also, the rewards will not automatically buy their money market. They will go into a "security" named FCASH.

Mine is automatically deposited monthly into my cash management account: https://www.fidelity.com/cash-managemen ... t/overview

From there, I can ACH to any account of my choosing (or write a check or use the ATM card to withdraw cash).
