Porte Adventure Giveaway

Long days at work can have us daydreaming of a much-needed vacation, whether it’s a beach with an umbrella drink in hand or a winter wonderland curled up with a cup of hot cocoa. But for many of us, financial limitations can make jet-setting around the world seem like just that—a dream.

However, through Porte’s Adventure Giveaway, going on the vacation of your dreams has suddenly become more accessible! This December through February, we’re selecting one Porte member each month to receive a 7-day, 6-night trip for two!1

We’re excited to announce our three vacation packages in this blog and share how you can enter to win!

What Is a Porte Account?

Before we check out the sweepstakes, let’s take a minute to explain who we are and the valuable features and benefits we offer to help you take ownership of your finances!

Porte is a mobile finance app that allows you to handle your finances in a whole new way. Porte offers full access to the functions of a bank (we’ve contracted with MetaBank®, N.A., to provide banking services), but through the convenience of a mobile app. You’re able to get the banking services you would expect to enjoy at a branch without having to visit a brick-and-mortar location.

Outside of the card itself, Porte also offers a savings account with above-average yield. You can earn up to 3.00% APY on savings balances up to $15,000!2 With this account, you can put your money into savings and earn more in interest than a traditional savings account.

Qualifications for the Porte Savings Account are changing. Click here for more information about the changes taking effect 1/1/2022.

Download the app today from the App Store3 or Google Play and open your account!4
