Applying is easy

Deserve is designed for people with no credit history or FICO score. We use machine learning to analyze your digital financial records to make credit available and evaluate you for higher credit limits and product upgrades.

STEP 1

Tell us about yourself

Share information about yourself, your education and your income.

STEP 2

Connect your bank account

Unlike other cards that rely only on your credit history, Deserve uses machine learning to analyze your digital financial records to make credit available and evaluate you for higher credit limits and product upgrades. We can only view your bank account information, similar to a bank statement. We cannot make any changes and we do not store your login credentials on our system, or share your information with anyone.

STEP 3

Get a decision

Most applications get a decision within 
60 seconds.
