MezuCard Offering 20% Cash Back at Select Retailers “While Supplies Last”

MezuCard Cashback Rewards

A few months ago, I was introduced to the app Mezu by their announcement of the MezuCard. This digital-only debit card allows users to spend their Mezu funds wherever mobile wallets such as Apple Pay and Google Pay are accepted. Now the company is further promoting that offering by giving users 20% off at some top retailers when they pay with their MezuCard.

Let me back up for a second and explain what exactly Mezu is and what makes it special. While on the surface it is a peer to peer (P2P) payments app akin to your Venmos and Square Cashes, Mezu allows users to send and receive payments more privately. For example, you can send someone funds by showing them a four-digit number to enter in their app or by dropping money into a MezuBox. It’s actually a really cool concept that helped land Mezu on my Top Apps to Download in 2020 list:

Anyway, as for the deal at hand, MezuCard users can currently score 20% back on purchases at McDonald’s, Dunkin’ Donuts, Walmart, and Amazon. Note that each of these offers has a maximum cashback amount of $10 and is one-time-use only. Furthermore, while Mezu doesn’t state an explicit expiration date for these promotions, they do note that they are only available “while supplies last.”

Mezu transaction

As luck would have it, the hotel I’m staying at in Southern California happens to have a McDonald’s location across the street from it. Thus, I decided to place a mobile order for the restaurant via their app (sidenote: McDonald’s has some pretty good deals available through their app to begin with) and paid using my Mezu card. Sure enough, looking at my Mezu balance, I can see the transaction for $10.95 followed by a $2.19 cashback deposit. Meanwhile, I’m now hoping that I make it home in time before this Walmart deal expires as I can easily earn $10 in cash back there.

When I opened a Mezu card, I did so mostly just to try it and review it as I thought it was a clever idea. However, if the company can keep rolling out special perks like this, I’ll be far more inclined to actually use the card instead of just letting it sit in my Apple Wallet. So, if you have a trip planned (virtual or IRL) to any of the four retailers featured in this promotion, I think it’s definitely worth giving Mezu a download and generating a MezuCard for yourself.
