Frequently asked questions
Which cryptocurrencies can I choose from?
You can choose from any crypto available on the Gemini Exchange except for GUSD. The full list can be found here. GUSD will be available in the coming months.
Can I change my crypto reward type?
Yes. You can change your crypto reward type at any time and it will be reflected on all future transactions. There is no limit to how many times you can change your crypto reward type.
How do you determine the cost basis for my rewards?
The cost basis is set as the market price of the specific crypto when the reward is disbursed. Gemini does not charge fees on providing crypto rewards.
Which purchases provide rewards after the transaction posts?
Certain purchases made at hotels, gas stations, car rental agencies, and any other transactions that a merchant's acquiring bank or payment processor specifies as a pre-authorization are excluded from instant rewards. For these categories, you will receive the rewards when the transaction posts. An example of a pre-authorization is when a gas station places a $50 hold when authorizing the card, even if you only intend to purchase $20 worth of gas. The $50 hold will remain until the transaction clears and posts to your Account, which can take 24-72 hours. In this example, you will receive Rewards on the $20 worth of gas when it clears and posts to your Account (and you will not receive Rewards on the $50 authorization hold).
The timing of your Rewards is subject to the Rewards Terms, which will be available at application.
What are the tax implications of receiving crypto rewards?
In general, the IRS deems credit card rewards as “rebates” rather than “income” which would imply they are non-taxable. There are some scenarios (such as selling crypto for a profit) that may need to be considered for tax implications. This content is for informational purposes only and is not tax or legal advice.
