How Does It Work?
Sign up by connecting your bank account, and we give you a spending limit based on your real-time balance with no credit check.
When you swipe your Extra Card, we spot you for that purchase and automatically pay ourselves back the next business day.
At the end of the month, we total up all of your purchases and report them to credit bureaus as credit worthy payments.

What Members Are Saying...
Building credit history
one transaction at a time.
“ My score is up almost 100 points since I first started using Extra. I recommend it to my friends, especially those that are just getting started with their credit journey.”
“Extra has been a game changer for me. My credit was so bad that it was in the lower 400s in September of 2020. It’s now February 2021 and my credit score has risen to nearly 600! ”
“I have had Extra for 4 months now and my individual reporting has bumped over 25 points, helping my score go above 750.”
Today, there are over 100 million Americans who don't want, or can't get a credit card. Yet there are very few alternatives for establishing your credit other than with a risky Credit Card. Our mission is to make credit building safer and more accessible for everyone. Extra is the first debit card that builds your credit history and earns rewards points just like a credit card.
Getting a lot of the nice things in life depend heavily on your credit score. Lenders use your credit score to help determine whether to approve you for a line of credit as well as what interest rate and terms they can offer you. Having a higher credit score means that you’ll generally pay lower interest rates on things like a car lease or a mortgage for a house—planning for your financial future starts with building your credit score.
Most credit products make money from predatory interest rates and hidden fees (even the "free" ones).
We believe in upfront and transparent pricing which is why Extra only charges a flat monthly subscription rate starting at just $7. This way we can give our members peace of mind by building their credit with the money they have and never having to worry about steep interest fees.
Most debit cards don’t offer rewards everywhere you swipe and have no ability to build or establish credit. Extra is the first debit card that lets you earn both in real-time. We give you the best parts of a credit card while only spending the money that you actually have. Big banks don't do this with their debit cards because they want to up-sell you into a credit card, which makes them more money.
