About Bucket

Bucket is a platform that digitizes coin change when cash is used at retail locations. Think of us as the digital piggy bank for coinless cash transactions, every time you shop with cash at a retail store.
Bucket puts your coin change from cash transactions into a digital account. If you are at one of our participating retailers, ask the cashier to Bucket your coins when you pay with cash. Then, your normal receipt will print with a QR code to scan or unique number code to be entered in. You can scan or enter this code whenever you’d like - it does not have to be at the register. Once your Bucket account hits $50 from your accumulated change, we’ll send you a message to cash out.
We will be launching in Northwest Arkansas in mid 2018, with a public launch thereafter, region by region. Fill out the “Get Updates” form to stay in the loop regarding when you can start Bucketing your change.
Absolutely not. Bucket is a completely free service for retailers and consumers.

Signing Up

No, you will not. Once you’re at a participating retailer, tell the cashier to Bucket your change and your usual receipt will print out, but now with a QR code and unique number code. Scan or enter that code whenever you’d like and you’ll be directed to create your account.
All you need to sign up is a phone number and email address. You will need to enter your bank account information to cash out but you don’t have to do that at sign up.
You can sign up online before you Bucket your change for the first time, or you can sign up online after you Bucket your change for the first time.

Your Bucket Account

To change the phone number associated with your account, you will go to “Settings” and edit from there. Once your number has been changed, make sure you use your new number when you Bucket your change.
Currently, Bucket is only available in the United States. However, we will be expanding internationally in the future, so stay tuned!
No worries, you’ll just go to the log in page and click the “Forgot Password” link. Once there, just enter the phone number you used to register with and a new verification code will be sent to you. You will then be asked to reset your password. If you do not receive a verification code you can click “resend code” or you can contact us.
You can track your funds at anytime simply through the Bucket website. Just sign in and you’ll be redirected to your Account page to see your current Bucket balance.

Once you reach $50 you can cash out directly to your bank account using our direct deposit cash out feature. We are also working on additional cash out options, including a charity program and a reloadable Visa card option.
