Deserve Edu Mastercard

The Deserve Edu credit card is available for students with limited or no credit, both native to the U.S. and international, who are either in school or have recently graduated.

You’ll only get 1% cash back for purchases, but you’ll also get 1 free year of Amazon Prime Student. There’s no fee for foreign transactions, and you’ll get a waiver for your first late payment if necessary.

You don’t need a SSN to apply for this card, and no security deposit is required. International students will need their student visa, passport ID, school document (e.g. I-20 or DS 2019), and proof of a U.S. bank account balance.

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.

bad payment website

their website is very bad. ambiguous statements. when you setup auto-pay or do an online payment, it doesn't even tell you that your payment is accepted or rejected. so you pay online, and get a shock a few weeks later when they tell you that you did not pay before the deadline.
