2) Staking levels | How do I upgrade my staking level?
Why stake PLU?
Staking PLU unlocks additional benefits including higher Crypto cashback rates and more Perks. Below are the four different staking levels we have on offer.
How do I stake PLU?
- PLU Earned via spending with the Plutus Card contributes to your staked balance automatically once it's made Available after 45 days.
- PLU Purchased must be held in a non-custodial wallet (e.g. MetaMask), and this wallet must be connected to your Plutus Account.
To stake PLU that has been purchased externally, you must have an Ethereum wallet browser extension.
How do I connect my wallet to my Plutus Account?
The process takes just 30 seconds. Watch our video guide below for easier-to-follow instructions.
3) Perks | How do I select my Perks?
Good news, you have already unlocked a Perk! Every Subscription Plan, including our free Starter Plan, is eligible for at least one Perk.
- Starter Plan = 1 Perk
- Everyday Plan = 2 Perks

We have a wide range of Perks to choose from.

4) Card Top-Up | How do I top up my Plutus Card?
You will see two separate balances on your account.

5) Spending | How does the Plutus Card work?
