How it works

01
Apply for the Credit Builder Card2
No credit score or credit check necessary—this credit building card is built for beginners.
02
Add cash to your security deposit
You can either transfer cash or set up direct deposits ($1 minimum). What you add will become your limit, so it’s really hard to miss a payment. We would say impossible, but our lawyers said we can’t.
03
Spend spend spend
Use your credit building card on recurring bills, groceries, gas, or wherever Visa is accepted. You can also add your card to your Apple Pay wallet.
04
Build your credit over time
Autopay your balance or use your security deposit. Cleo then reports your payment history to credit bureaus: Experian, TransUnion and Equifax. Over time, on-time payments should help your credit score. 

Security
