General Questions

Yes. Parents often add dependents to build their credit, and this is exactly the same thing. The only difference is you’re getting paid.

Earnings are taxable and all cardholders in our program will receive a 1099 statement with your year-end total.

Adding an authorized user does not mean you’re authorizing them to use your card.

While authorized users get your credit history added to their credit profile, they cannot access the credit card number, expiration date, name, or 3-digit security code to make purchases. In fact, neither can we, and we will never ask our cardholders to submit that information.

Yes. It’s your card so you will know the names of the authorized users. We provide you a list every month with the information required to add them.

Banks are notorious for high interest payments and charging banking fees. This is your chance to turn the tables and profit from your own hard-earned credit.

There are examples of banks closing a customer’s credit card for adding authorized users, but your perfect payment history will continue to appear on your credit file and your credit score will remain intact.

That said, we always put your comfort first. If a particular credit card being closed would negatively impact your buying power, we suggest that you not enroll that card to our program.

We work on a month-to-month schedule so if you choose to leave the program we ask for a 30-day, advance notice to sort out the authorized users on that card.

Ideally we request our cardholders to keep their monthly balances below 15% of their limit but we understand that circumstances change. If you need to make large purchases (i.e vacations, tuition, wedding funds) kindly give us a 30-day notice, and we’ll stop adding authorized users. You can re-add that card whenever you’re ready.

Adding authorized users does not impact your credit score in any way. It’s simply something the bank notes when you request it. Other than that, you can use your credit card as you normally would.
