what scares me about Drop is you have to provide your logins for banking/cc etc. that's the only hurdle i'm struggling with to join.
I bit the bullet a few weeks ago. I selected 5 places I go to. Or so I thought I realised there was a few more. Sucks cause I have a shell for gas I go to and it would have added up quick. I got like 5 bucks already doing honestly zip. Its pretty cool. So u use my scene CC. Get scene points and drop points for gift cards at the same time. I figure its my CC if there's a breach I despite.

I guess this wont work if I already have a WealthSimple acccount :(
Email Wealthsimple directly from their site. They helped me push the promo through, although I had signed up for the account not too long before the promo went live.

While I like the concept of Drop, I will not give out my login under any circumstances. Those of you who do, clearly didn't read your bank's terms and conditions which explicitly state you cannot give away login and passwords to anyone. Guess what will happen to you when/if your accounts are compromised in any unrelated way and they see this?

Can you elaborate on this please?

This is very concerning. And now that you put this out there, I'm concerned about my account.

In what way did your RBC account get hacked? Did money leave your account?

Obviously they are selling your data. They wouldn't give you gift certificates for free. They want to know what you're buying (and where, how often, etc.).

Just so you know the Amazon gift card is for Amazon.com, so you can't use it for Amazon.ca

If I open Drop and click redeem. I only see

Title : Amazon : Get it online with Amazon.com
Details : This reward is a 10$ amazon.com e-gift card.

Initially, thats what I thought too. I tried the gift card code for Amazon.ca and it didnt work (saying its an Amazon.com code).

How did you do it?

I redeemed $100+ worth of Amazon.CA (N x $10 each) in my Drop apps in the family, redeemed no problem (last usage last night)

Maybe you registered somehow as US resident/address? I know it was doable (to get different offers)

Any idea if all the rewards are for Canadian retailers? Thinking about redeeming the bonus points from the Wealthsimple offer for Apple Store gift cards.

Also, I deposited $5 into the Wealthsimple account last Tuesday. Just received the points today so it took a week.

I dont believe Wealthsimple since they keep trying to hire developers with below average salaries..
They should be willing to pay more, especially since Ruby is more and more becoming a niche language.

I guess they are looking for a java developer now as well.

Username : Email ending with .ca
Itunes region : Canada
I linked a Canadian Bank to Drop
I live in Canada and never lived in US so there's no way I input an US address during WealthSimple registration

Drop doesn't seem to have a country setting in the app so I don't know where else you could change Country
