The Petal Visa Credit Card is designed for the millions of Americans with limited or no credit, who are faced with the challenge of being approved for credit with no credit history. Petal Card is issued by WebBank, Member FDIC.

Rather than only checking the usual creditworthiness factors like a traditional credit card, such as credit scores and income, WebBank, the lender that backs the Petal card, may also check your current digital financial record by looking at your bank account. WebBank wants to see how you make, save, and spend money, and it will use machine learning algorithms to determine whether or not you’re approved.

You may be asked to enter your bank account login details so the issuing bank can view your account, which could make some people uncomfortable. You can learn more about linking your bank account here.

WebBank will also check credit reports in addition to bank accounts, which will be helpful for applicants with some credit history. This card is geared more towards people with limited or no credit, rather than bad credit. If you have bad credit, with a history of late payments or bankruptcy, you’ll likely not qualify.

The Petal credit card stands out for having no fees: no annual fee, no foreign transaction fee, no late fee, no over limit fee. (An APR of 14.74% - 25.74% Variable applies)

You’ll get an interesting rewards program, one that rewards you for paying on time. You’ll earn 1% cash back on purchases initially; after 6 on-time monthly payments that increases to 1.25% cash back; and after 12 on-time monthly payments it increases to 1.5% cash back. Once you reach a higher cash back level, you’ll get that rate permanently — even if you end up making a late payment, but you will only be able to redeem rewards if your account is in good standing.

Cardholders may get a fairly high interest rate, with a range of 14.74% - 25.74% Variable, and carrying a balance with this card is not recommended. Instead, pay the full statement balance each month to avoid interest charges.

The Petal mobile app shows how much extra you’d have to pay if you choose to carry a particular balance from month to month, giving you a clear picture of how expensive that can be.

The Petal Visa comes with a credit limit of $500 to $10,000. Balance transfers and cash advances are not allowed.

You can earn Uber credits with this card through the Visa Local Offers program. Just add your Petal card to your account in the Uber app, and then you’ll see a message to activate Visa Local Offers. Complete the activation and you’ll be able to browse the participating merchants to find offers near you.
