Around this time last year I wrote a short post on how to cash out prepaid debit card from T-Mobile but since then T-Mobile has been pushing virtual gift card on their phone deals and I am finally writing a post on it.
Once your rebate is approved, you will be sent a text message. I got this rebate for an iPhone 11 deal that I wrote about here. Anyway, the text linked to https://login.wirecard.com/content/shop.do and I was prompted to sign-in using my new phone number.
You would be given a virtual gift card which you can obviously add to mobile wallets (apple pay, samsung pay, or google pay) and use it. You could also organically burn it day-to-day expense but remember you won’t get points for spending that way. So, what you can do is cash out this reward straight to your checking account.
In order to cash out your balance, click on the “Access $” tab and fill out your bank account information.
Then you can do a one-time withdraw to withdraw the entire amount.
Your balance should immediately update after the withdrawl.
This is actually better than having physical prepaid card. The virtual gift cards are shipped to you sooner plus you can withdraw them directly to bank account without having to visit a branch of an eligible bank.
