Read on for more information about Cash App Boosts, how to get them, and how they work, along with other useful facts!

How Do Cash App Users Get Boosts?

These Cash App Boosts will help you save money at coffee shops, different merchants, and restaurants.

If you already have a Cash App Card, here’s how to get the Boosts.

  1. Select the Cash Card tab on your home screen
  2. Click “Add Boost”
  3. Select a Boost
  4. Tap “Add”
  5. Use the Boost

Also, you can click on “Details” to get more information about your active Boosts, where to use them, and when they expire.

How Long Do Cash App Boosts Last?

According to Cash App, their Boosts expire, and when this happens, they are replaced by new and exciting offers.

Each Boost on Cash App has a specific expiration date; therefore, you need to check them constantly to ensure that you don’t miss any of them.

If you want to check when your Boost will expire, follow these steps:

  1. Tap on the Cash Card tab on your home page
  2. Click on the current Boost or choose to Save with Boost
  3. Tap on a Boost to see the exact date

These Cash App Boost expiration dates remain the same, whether they’re being unlocked or swapped out. However, keep in mind that these expiration dates vary.

Do Cash App Boosts Have Limits?

When using Cash Boost, you need to be aware of the limits. Boosts have maximum discount amounts and a minimum purchase.

Additionally, Boosts can’t be applied to Cash Back transactions. You need to have this at the back of your mind and the expiration dates.

How Many Times Can You Use Cash App Boost?

According to Cash App, only one Boost can be active at a time. However, users are allowed to swap Boosts as often as possible.

Ensure that the Boost you want to use is active before swiping your Cash Card at the coffee shop, restaurant, or retail store.

Once you select a Boost in the Discover section, it will automatically sync with the Cash Card tab.

How Can I Use Category Boosts?

How Can I Use Category Boosts?

Cash App Category Boosts are only applied at stores that sell products from particular categories.

For instance, the Grocery Store Boost can only work for grocery stores. However, you can’t use it in stores like Walmart because they’re more than a grocery store.

When using these Category Boosts, you have to make purchases in-store using your Cash Card, Apple Pay or Google Pay.

Can You Swap Boosts?

Fortunately, Cash App makes it possible to swap Boosts when you like. To swap them, follow these steps:

  1. Tap on the Cash Card tab on the home page
  2. Select Swap on your current Boost
  3. Click on an available Boost
  4. Select “Add Boost.”

Keep in mind that if a Boost has a lock on the icon feature, it will need to be unlocked first before being added to your Cash Card. 

You can tap on a specific Boost to get more details on how to unlock it.

Why Are My Cash App Boosts Missing?

If you used a Cash App Boost for a purchase but didn’t receive any discount, you can submit the payment for a review by following these steps:

  1. Click on the Activity tab on the home page
  2. Select the payment
  3. Click on the three dots icon
  4. Choose “Missing Boost”
  5. On the next tab, click “Submit for Review.”

Why Isn’t My Cash App Boost Working?

If you did a transaction and the Cash App Boost wasn’t applied, you can also check for these causes:

  • You forgot to add the boost to your Cash App Card before making the transaction
  • You didn’t reach the minimum amount of purchase needed to be eligible for a Cash App Boost.
  • Your Boosts may have expired or are no longer available.

If you check all these and still didn’t get the discount, you can raise the issue with Cash App for a review.
