WHERE TRADITIONAL LENDERS SEE RISK, WE SEE POTENTIAL
While traditional lenders only look at your FICO score and credit history to determine your credit worthiness, in absence of a history, our proprietary algorithm takes other factors into consideration such as your current financial health and habits to predict your future credit potential.
WE BALANCE SIMPLICITY AND SECURITY
Our cards meet the strictest requirements of the law when it comes to security, using enhanced identity verification and consistent lending practices to ensure your safety. All of these features and we never sacrifice a simple experience to sign up or manage your account on the go..

Ratings and Reviews
Good layout only if it opened
It has a simple layout and is easy to use. But lately ,even after updating the app, nothing loads on the screen after I sign.
This began 2 weeks ago and I went back to using my computer to check on my statements/transactions. Any troubleshooting advices?!
Very bad experience
I'm really confused and tired of this
I live in a school dorm, so we don’t have any utility bill (I had mentioned this twice time)
Last time your team told me to ask the school to have an official letter to proof my resident address.
Everyone from your team gave me different answer or responses
The first time (on phone) : you guys told me to send my "Bank Statement"
The second time (Email and phone) : you guys told me you can't accept a bank statement and ask me to provide the utility bill.
But I live in the school dorm, so I don't have any utility bill, so your team told me to ask my school to have an official letter with my name and address with it.
The third time (Email) : you guys received my official school letter, but you said I will not in the current dorm (address) during the summer semester, so I need to provide my new address during the summer(I did it and sent it with the last email)
This time (Email) : Now you told me I need to ask my school to have a utility bill, our school doesn't provide a utility bill of the dorm, they only provide an official letter to prove my dorm address. (my school is also confusing about this situation, it doesn't happen before)
Again, I really tired of this, and why you sent me the card before finish this process or fixing this problem, it doesn't makes sense you providing a none working card to your customer.
Very good start
Nice app with an intuitive interface however there are some suggestions for a better user experience. #1 Whenever the app is minimized, the session times out instantly and I’ve to login back again which is not very favorable. #2 browsing my statements are not viewable all the time and sometimes take forever to load the statement. I’ve to admit that my statement with Deserve looks very comprehensible and neat compare to some other well known credit card companies, so I appreciate that very much. Other than that I’m satisfied with the experience. Thanks.
