Empower is an online banking account that is offering $50 signup bonus for the month of April. The major catch is that you’ll have to get invited via SMS.

I actually use Empower. Their support is nice but it took them pretty good deal of time to fix an issue I had but at least they were communicating with me.
Anyway, $50 bonus is pretty nice for an app I use anyway. I’ll signup my family members to it…why not? If you were thinking about trying Empower then this is a pretty good time to do so. If you were thinking about referring family members to Empower then this is an excellent time to do so.
