Deserve Classic Mastercard

The Deserve Classic credit card is designed to help you build or rebuild your credit, but it does not require a security deposit. It has a small annual fee, and offers no rewards for purchases and only basic shopping and travel protections.

Instead of rewards or benefits, this card is designed simply for improving credit. After a period of positive activity, you may be able to upgrade to the Deserve Pro Mastercard (Review) cash back card. There’s also a card created for students, the Deserve Edu Mastercard (Review).

When applying for the Deserve credit cards, they will consider not only your credit history but also education, current financial health, future employability, and earnings potential. This gives people with poor credit or thin credit files a better chance of approval.
