No — there are no hard credit checks for the Neo secured credit card. Approval is guaranteed¹ and instant regardless of good, low, or no credit score.
Only $50 — because wealth should never (ever) be a condition for building credit.
No — both the Neo secured card and standard card have no monthly or annual fees².
Yes—but unlike other secured credit cards, the Neo secured card rewards you with cashback at thousands of places with no monthly or annual fees².
The Neo Card™ may help you build your credit³ while earning cashback rewards — all with no annual fee². Unlike traditional credit cards, we won’t check your credit history, and you’re guaranteed approval¹. You can use the Neo Card™ just like you would any other traditional credit card, anywhere Mastercard® is accepted.
Your credit limit is equal to the amount of security funds you’ve set aside. This means you choose your limit based on your comfort level. For example, if you set aside $500 as your security funds, your credit limit is $500. The minimum amount of security funds to get started is $50.
No, this is better. With a prepaid card, as you spend the funds, your balance decreases and the card must be reloaded. The Neo secured card is like any other credit card where you borrow money (your credit) and pay your monthly statement. Security funds don’t mean your card is paid off, they only act as payment guarantee. Plus, unlike with other cards, you're getting rewarded with cashback everywhere you shop that you can cash out anytime for anything — all for no annual or monthly fees.
Yes — your security funds will be returned to you if you decide to close your account and your balance has been paid off in full, or if you move from the secured Neo Card™ to the standard Neo Card™.
