Applying is Simple

If you have a credit history, that’s great—we’ll take a look. In fact, if you’re an International student we don’t require a SSN at all. We look at your full financial picture and consider factors like how you manage your money, if you pay your bills on time, and even how much you’re projected to earn in the future. Neat, right?

Here’s how it works:

 
Payment

Find The Card You Deserve

Get Started, tell us about yourself, and we’ll recommend which card is right for you.

Add-Bank-Account

Link Your Bank Account

We’ll look, but never touch. Grant us read-only access to share how you manage your money. Learn More

Add-Payment-Method

Build Your Credit and Get Rewarded

Take advantage of Deserve Benefits upon card approval and start building your credit.

Control At Your Fingertips

Manage your card from within the Deserve app—set spending limits, lock your card, and monitor your credit score. Along with real time transaction notifications, you’ll always be up-to-date.

Our Customers Love Us

Easy to set up and use

Information on my credit card activity, balance, and available credit are presented clearly.
I can even check my credit score right in the app! What I love most are the push notifications I
get on my phone in real time with every transaction.

APP IS PERFECT!

I’m so glad there’s finally an app. The Deserve ecosystem is now complete
and (dare I say) PERFECT for the college student/recent grad.

“The entire Deserve card program is tailored specifically for students: There’s no annual fee, and you can get one even if you don’t yet have a credit history, which is a benefit other credit cards for college students don’t generally offer.”
