*Expired* Get a Jingit Debit Card without using SSN

by Freebies4Mom on October 23, 2012 11:08 am

JingitYou’ll love the current Hot Deals, sorry you missed this deal. My readers are excited about earning money by watching Jingit ads, but I’m getting a lot of questions. Many of these questions can be answered in the Jingit FAQ’s, but here’s a question that I’d like to answer to help you sign-up for a Jingit Debit card without entering your Social Security Number.

QUESTION:  Do I have to enter my Social Security Number in order to get the Jingit Debit Card?

ANSWER: No, you should be able to enter all ZERO’s like this:  000-00-0000 and you’ll qualify for a Basic Jingit Account instead of a Jingit Plus Account.

Tip: You may need to enter those zero’s more than once – here’s what Heather M. said: ” I applied for a card last night and so did my husband it denied putting zero’s in for the social security number until the third try for both of us then accepted it. I’m not sure why that is but I guess third try was a charm. So the other readers might try that”

I didn’t know there were two types of Jingit Debit cards until I received the cardholder agreement with my Jingit card and I had a reader test my theory that you didn’t really have to enter your SSN (although it appears you do on the form). You can sign-up for a Basic Jingit Account instead of a Jingit Plus Account – the only difference is that with the Plus account you can make cash deposits and add funds by electronic deposit (neither which is necessary to spend the funds on your card where Visa is accepted). The reason they ask for your SSN for the Plus account is not to do a credit check (Jingit is not a credit card), but to help minimize fraud (prevent people for signing-up for more than one card).

Everyone who provides their name, address, email, phone, and date of birth should qualify for a Basic Jingit Account. I encourage you to read the Cardholder Agreement and the Fee Schedule when you receive your Jingit Debit card in the mail to understand the fees that may be associated with certain activities (like cash withdrawals). It’s easy to avoid fees because there is no monthly fee, and I’ll be writing a post about that next!

I am a new reader, and I am LOVING your site! Thank you for this post especially because even though I know they were not going to run a credit check it still made me nervous to give them my SSN! Thank you so much!


Freebies4Mom October 23, 2012 at 11:48 am

You’re welcome – I’m glad I could share a useful tip with you!


WillowK October 23, 2012 at 11:58 am

I tried the 000-00-0000 trick last night when applying for mine and it said it wasn’t a match and wouldn’t accept any number combo except my actual SSN. They may have worked around this issue. Also, you only get 3 chances to enter your SSN before you have to call them to apply.


Freebies4Mom October 23, 2012 at 12:00 pm

Thanks for letting me know. What happens if you leave it blank? Since they still have two different Debit Cards there should still be around entering your SSN.


WillowK October 23, 2012 at 1:15 pm

It came up as an error and told me I had to fill in the SSN field. Maybe you have to call them to order it and request the basic debit card?


Freebies4Mom October 23, 2012 at 3:03 pm

Have you seen a phone number to call? Is it US Bank that you need to call (and not Jingit)?


WillowK October 23, 2012 at 4:00 pm

It didn’t give me the number, just a warning after 2 failed attempts that if I failed again, I’d have to call them.

Katrina February 17, 2013 at 11:47 am

I tried it three times, and then it worked for me. I qualified for a “Basic Jingit Card” account. A lot of other people said that worked for them.


Heather February 17, 2013 at 12:12 pm

I’m glad it worked for you!


VampireSlumberParty October 23, 2012 at 12:02 pm

I have been with Jingit for nearly a year and have had zero problems when I entered my SSN. With the plus account you are also given a routing number, which you can add to PayPal as a bank account. I like to take the Paypal I redeem on Swagbucks and transfer it to my Jingit card (which is free to do). You have a great blog by the way. I may not be a parent, but single, childless ladies like deals too!


Pamela Sikora Winkowski October 23, 2012 at 12:53 pm

I can’t watch videos on jingit more than once. Do you have any ideas why? I am not making any money :(


Freebies4Mom October 23, 2012 at 1:05 pm

Pamela –

You might want to try a different web browser (like Google Chrome). Also try clearing the browser cache and cookies. Good luck!


Amanda Scott October 23, 2012 at 12:58 pm

Did they change this? When I applied for mine a couple weeks ago I tried doing all 0’s and it wouldn’t allow it so I just went ahead and entered my ssn.


Freebies4Mom October 23, 2012 at 1:04 pm

Amanda –

It’s not something I can test myself – but a reader told me it worked for her. Did you try leaving the SSN blank?


bgguy October 23, 2012 at 1:16 pm

I need a referral to increase my limit can someone help?


Jenn O October 23, 2012 at 2:56 pm

I don’t see where to apply for the basic card. I only see one option and it doesn’t state whether it’s basic or plus account.


Freebies4Mom October 23, 2012 at 3:04 pm

I know it’s confusing – but there should be a way to apply for the Basic account – is there a phone number listed to call?


Jennifer C October 23, 2012 at 3:50 pm

I tried the all 0’s once and it would not accept it. When I tried a second time using real info, it just keeps telling me there was a unexpected error. It keeps acting like it is processing but never does?


Freebies4Mom October 23, 2012 at 3:53 pm

I’m sorry – is there a phone number on that page that you can call for help?


Dawn October 23, 2012 at 4:14 pm

I entered all 0’s but like the above reader I had to do it three times and it worked fine! Does anyone know can you have more then one account per household….Can my husband sign up also?


Freebies4Mom October 23, 2012 at 4:18 pm

Dawn –

Yes, your husband can sign-up too if he meets all the requirements. You are limited to one account per person (not per household).


erica October 23, 2012 at 4:20 pm

yes you can have as many as you want per household. me my daughter and husband has one.


swmmrgrl2 October 23, 2012 at 4:42 pm

I just tried the all 0’s and I also had to put it in 3 times and then it approved it but it worked!


April October 24, 2012 at 8:53 am

Did anyone read the fees associated with this card? It looks like there is a $10 activation fee, then a monthly fee (once the account is activated – but it doesn’t say what the fee is), THEN to close it there is a $10 fee! Just sounds fishy to me…I like that we don’t have to enter our ss# though!


Freebies4Mom October 24, 2012 at 9:00 am

April –

There is not a $10 activation fee. There is a $3.00 activation fee (and that $3.00 comes from your Jingit earnings) and they say that it used to be $10 (so that’s where the confusion comes in). There is NO MONTHLY FEE. I have the ‘Jingit Plus Convenient Cash Fee Schedule’ and the monthly service fee is FREE. If you want to close your account it’s very simple to do so without incurring that $10 fee, you need to SPEND ALL YOUR JINGIT MONEY before you close your account because that fee is only assessed if you close your account and ask for the remaining funds to be mailed to you in a check form. I hope this answered your questions and I encourage you to carefully read the fee schedule found on the back of the paper from US Bank that your Jingit Debit Card is affixed to.

I’m glad you asked this question because it reminded me I need to write a post about this question today!


Mandar October 24, 2012 at 1:20 pm

Me too applied with all zeros in third try but the question is I will get real card in my hand after some days or not? has anybody got card with zero as SSN?


Guest October 24, 2012 at 6:52 pm

I was unable to sign up with 0s in the SSN but I just used random numbers and that was fine.


Lee October 29, 2012 at 7:25 am

except that is technically identity theft….considering that is potentially someone else’s SSN!!


Freebies4Mom October 29, 2012 at 8:45 am

True – not a good idea.


sam October 29, 2012 at 9:23 am

you can be charged with identity theft be careful now!! when whomevers SSN or as you say “random numbers” you used checks their credit reports it may show up and they can take legal action against you.


donell brown October 26, 2012 at 9:46 pm

you can add yourself threw my link via @Jingit

its very easy i had it for 1 1/2 and made 12.60 already


Ktcore October 29, 2012 at 7:28 am

It worked for me on the third time too


Samantha Lynn Clostio October 29, 2012 at 9:28 am

i was trying to sign up my fiance also but it states im am using an invalid phone number. it is a different number i signed myself up with, can i sign him up with the same number i signed up with since im aving trouble using my other phone number?


Freebies4Mom October 29, 2012 at 9:32 am

You need to use a mobile number that can receive text messages because they text you a verification code


Samantha Lynn Clostio October 29, 2012 at 9:43 am

i can receive texts on the phone could it be because it is a prepaid tracfone? the phone i used for my acct was a AT&T line. and thank you so much for the fast response and all the great things you do to help us out with freebies, coupons, and earning money!!! i absolutely LOVE this site!!!!!!


Freebies4Mom October 29, 2012 at 9:48 am

I’m not sure, you may want to contact to ask that question


Justin Renee Samples Nickell October 29, 2012 at 4:57 pm

where do I go to get my debit card?


Freebies4Mom October 29, 2012 at 8:36 pm

Login to and you should see an ad in the top right that’s green and blue for the Jingit VISA Debit Card sign-up


Jen November 2, 2012 at 5:52 pm

I just signed up for my debit card after weeks of watching ads. I didnt want to use my ssn either until I saw your post about someone putting all 0’s. I did that and had to do it 3 times because it said not accepted but on the third time it said my card is on the way! I cant wait to start using it.


Jenjen November 6, 2012 at 9:29 am

I am sad Jingit hasn’t had anything new in a while. Any idea when new campaigns are coming?


Freebies4Mom November 6, 2012 at 10:21 am

No idea


Aimee November 20, 2012 at 11:23 am

I haven’t received my card yet and called the number under jingit faqs. they said they no longer handle those accounts and gave me a number that ended up directing me to united health care. anyone have an alternate number or suggestion?


Freebies4Mom November 20, 2012 at 1:51 pm

I would go ask on the Jingit FB page for help. Or go to and ask.


me July 18, 2014 at 4:52 am

Where do I sign up will someone please post a link for the card


Freebies4Mom July 18, 2014 at 5:52 am

I’m sorry, but the Jingit card has been discontinued.
