Earning 110k points by opening a Brex account was supposed to be easy. First, I had issues being approved (see Brex: The 110K Application, The Approval, But Only Conditionally). I was approved and hit the 3k minimum spend for the additional 10k. Then I received the 80k (see Brex 80k Posted! What About Payroll?). I tried to earn the last 20k by linking my PayPal. I speculate that it didn’t work because I was transferring money from PayPal using funds from my bank, not funds from my PayPal account. Running out of days, I tried Xoom but that was declined despite calling them to confirm my identity. Finally, the EUREKA! moment happened when I linked my Stripe account, an actual account that I use for my business, to send transfer funds.
110k the unnecessarily hard way. Now what will I do with those points? (See 11 Reasons Why I Still Don’t Want to Travel).
