Let’s face it – mobile gaming can be an expensive hobby. Between buying gems to beef up your defences in Clash of Clans and unlocking the latest Battle Pass in Call of Duty: Mobile, if you want to stay competitive or nab the best skins, you’ll probably need to stump up some cash every now and then.
But Mana is looking to help with that. The Mana debit card is a rewards card designed for gamers, rewarding you with points for every single purchase you make when you use it, whether in your favourite mobile game or just when you’re doing your food shopping. These points can then be used to top up your gaming or streaming subscriptions and a whole lot more.
And the best part is that it’s completely free to use – you can sign up, get your card, put money in your new deposit account, and start spending to earn some points. That said, if you want even more out of your account, there’s also Mana Pro, which comes with a wealth of bonuses for an annual fee – but we’ll get to that later.
So what exactly is it like to have a Mana account? Well for starters, you’ll get access to a Visa® debit card, provided through Mana’s partnership with MVB Bank, which is a member of the FDIC. That means you can be sure that any money you place in this deposit account is safe, and because it’s a checking account, you have control over how much money you want to keep in there at any one time.
Once you’ve made your deposit, it’s time to get spending. Since you have a Visa debit card, you shouldn’t have any trouble spending your money wherever you want on whatever you want. Buying food for the week? Paying for your Netflix subscription? Picking up a Google Play gift card? It’s all possible, and every single purchase will give you points to spend with Mana on a wide range of rewards.
You get different levels of points depending on what you use your Mana card to pay for. Everyday things like food will get you the basic rate of points. Buying something through the Mana Shop, which will be stocked with games, gaming gift cards, and more will get you twice the amount of points. Finally, purchases related to gaming and entertainment subscriptions – so your Xbox Game Pass Ultimate or Nintendo Switch Online subs – will earn you three times the base amount of points.
All these points get added to your account, and you can spend them on the Mana Shop on all your games and entertainment needs. So say you go out for dinner, get an Uber home, then pick up $30 of Google Play credit from Mana to help pay for some Clash of Clans gems. That all adds to your Mana points pile, which can then be used for another gift card to help pad your Clash of Clans wallet even more.
The Mana card and all these rewards are free, but there’s also Mana Pro for those who want to make the most of their account. For a yearly subscription, you can get five times the amount of points from your subscriptions and three times the points from Mana Shop purchases. You also get a heap of rewards from Mana, including a three month Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription, one year of Discord Nitro, and plenty more. And on top of all that, you get a shiny metal debit card, exclusive to the Pro tier.
That’s a lot of rewards, and if you sign up to the waitlist for Mana now, you’ll get that for just $69.95 for the first year. Mana will only be available in the US when it launches, but if you can sign up and you’re looking for a way to save money on all your gaming needs no matter how you spend your money, it’s well worth checking out.
