PerkStreet Financial, the progressive online financial services company with the best cash back rewards debit card in the United States has partnered with Dave Ramsey, personal finance expert and author of "Total Money Makeover", to promote PerkStreet’s revolutionary new checking account. The typical American family can now earn over $600 of cash back annually* for their everyday spending, letting PerkStreet customers live better financial lives. Americans can visit http://www.perkstreet.com/daveramsey to sign up.

“We created PerkStreet because we wanted people to be rewarded for living responsibly,” said PerkStreet co-founder and CEO Dan O’Malley. “Americans are getting a terrible deal from their banks, yet most don’t realize it. Dave Ramsey helps millions of people live the life they deserve through wise financial choices, making him the perfect partner for PerkStreet.”

The PerkStreet Financial Visa® Debit Card even puts more cash back into customers’ hands than most “high interest” checking programs. Consumers no longer need to take on annual fees or grow their debt just to get great rewards.

“Now that Americans can earn more cash back on a debit card than they can on a credit card, they can finally put their credit cards where they belong: in the shredder,” said Dan O’Malley, CEO of PerkStreet Financial. “After my time as an executive in the credit card industry, I can tell you that is exactly where credit cards belong.”

PerkStreet is changing the way banking is done, offering customers 50 times** more rewards than the average debit card, and rewarding them for spending intelligently using debit, not interest-bearing credit cards. Because the company doesn’t waste billions on bank branches, PerkStreet can give that savings back to its customers in the form of rewards (cash back, music, coffee).
