Issued by Synchrony and powered by Visa, the very first Venmo credit card offers automatic cash back on every purchase, personalized rewards and a mobile first experience

SAN JOSE, California, October 5, 2020 / PRNewswire / – Venmo today introduced its very first Venmo credit card, issued by Synchrony (NYSE: SYF) and powered by the Visa network, which offers customers automatic cash back on every qualifying purchase, an experience of personalized reward and the possibility to manage the card directly in the Venmo app. Card opens new ways for the Venmo community of over 60 million customers to buy, share or split purchases and earn money – everywhere Visa® credit cards are accepted.

Every month, customers automatically earn Cash Back on the categories where they spend the most, up to 3% Cash Back * on their highest spending category, up to 2% on the second highest spending category high and up to 1% on all other purchases. The main spending categories change based on the customer’s monthly spending habits, allowing customers to get the most out of their purchases, without expiration of earned cash rewards. Cash Back is automatically added to a customer’s account with Venmo, giving them the freedom to choose how to use the funds – if they want to make statement payments, send money to friends with the Venmo app, make purchases from millions of online and mobile retailers that accept Venmo at checkout, or transfer those funds to a linked bank account or debit card.

  • Easily track and manage finances. The Venmo Credit Card offers customers an easy way to manage their card and spending right in the mobile app. Customers can track real-time activity organized by expense categories, split and share purchases, view cash back status, make payments, manage credit card and more, all in the app .

  • Custom card design. Available in five vibrant and colorful designs, each card is printed with a customer’s unique QR code on the front, creating a separate card design for each customer. The QR code can be scanned through a cell phone’s camera to activate the card, or in the Venmo app by friends to send payment or split purchases.

  • Buy virtually. Customers have access to a virtual card, which allows them to make purchases online at any time, even before their physical card arrives in the mail.

  • More secure and contactless payments. The Venmo credit card is equipped with an RFID chip, so customers can pay at the point of sale, allowing minimal contact, instead of inserting the chip or swiping their card at the point of sale.
