Bumped Shopping Extension

Who is eligible to use the Bumped Shopping Extension?

In order to reward you in fractional shares of stock, a Bumped brokerage account is required. To open a Bumped brokerage account you need to,

  • Be at least 18 years old
  • Have a valid social security number, and 
  • Be a U.S. citizen or a Permanent Resident of the U.S. 

We’re also required by regulation to verify the identity of anyone signing up for a Bumped brokerage account. You may need to submit additional documentation, such as a picture of your government-issued ID, Social Security Card, or in some cases a selfie to help with identity verification. You can sign up for free at Bumped.com.

 

How do I install the Bumped Shopping Extension?

Visit the Chrome Web Store and search “Bumped Shopping Extension”, here. Tap “Add to Chrome” and follow the pop-up instructions. From there, you should be good to go!

Be sure your version of Chrome is up-to-date. When you have Chrome open on your computer, tap “Chrome” on your main toolbar and then “About Google Chrome”. A pop-up window will indicate whether your Chrome needs to be updated.

 

Is the Bumped Shopping Extension available on other browsers, or on mobile devices?

Currently, the Bumped Shopping Extension is only available on Chrome web browser. We will announce when it becomes compatible for other browsers and devices. 

 

How do I use the Bumped Shopping Extension?

Once you have the browser extension installed, you can shop online as you normally do! When you visit the website of one of our Bumped merchants, a pop-up will automatically appear to let you know that purchases may be eligible for stock rewards. Click the pop-up to activate it, and after you complete an eligible purchase, you’ll get your free stock rewards.

 

What brands can I get stock rewards from?

More than a thousand of your favorite, everyday brands are available through the Bumped Shopping Extension. We’re preparing a full list available for you soon and will update when we have it, but they are very similar to the brands we have available in the Bumped mobile app and web.

 

What rewards do I get from the Bumped Shopping Extension?

When you make eligible purchases from any brand available in the Bumped Shopping Extension, you’ll be rewarded in a broad market ETF and your Stock Picks. 

Here’s how you select the stock you want to be rewarded with: Head to your Bumped homepage on either Bumped mobile or web, scroll down to select your Stock Picks, and tap “Edit My Picks”. You can choose which one to four stocks you want to be rewarded in from a list of top brands. If you have four stocks selected and want to select another, you’ll need to first unselect a stock.

When you make eligible purchases through the browser extension, you’ll be rewarded in the stock picks of your choosing. Please note that it can take time for transactions to be verified between your bank and the merchant, so you can always check on the status of your reward under “Activity” in your Bumped account.

 

Can I use the Bumped Shopping Extension with other shopping browser extensions?

There are many shopping browser extensions available, and while you can have multiple installed, in most cases, only one can be applied at checkout. You’ll typically have a choice of which extension you want to activate for a particular purchase.

That said, stock rewards are unique compared to discounts or cash-back because they have the potential to increase in value over time. For more information on why free stock rewards can be beneficial, visit our blog post: “Why Invest”.
