Millions of hard working Americans experience financial hardship and stress—and poor credit options exacerbate the problem. By the numbers, the Center for Financial Service Innovation (CFSI) estimates that high-quality credit is not an option for 108 million Americans who lack access to credit cards or low-interest financing products.
What’s scarier is that many of the people who don’t have access to sound credit options are working full-time jobs and doing everything they can to make ends meet. If this is familiar to you, a family member, friend or colleague, Zebit is a new socially-responsible company that may help.
Zebit, a company committed to offering no-cost, transparent credit to hardworking Americans, has just announced a new partnership with CARD.com— the largest online originator of Visa and MasterCard debit banking accounts—to provide a more complete suite of services, including access to $1,000 interest-free financing to select CARD.com members.
Zebit gives members the ability to pay for purchases over time in equal installments at 0% APR, without a credit check. With the offering, Zebit seeks to turn the tables on unfair lending practices and level the playing field for Americans that have been turned away or charged exorbitant fees by traditional lending and credit services. CARD.com members will also be able to leverage Zebit’s free financial wellness resources that feature budgeting tools, online education, and the Instant Budget mobile app.
How exactly does Zebit work? CARD.com customers who are at least 18 years old and have been using the direct deposit feature on their CARD.com debit card for at least 6 months are eligible to register for Zebit.
Upon registration, these members will be able to finance purchases up to $1,000 from the Zebit Market, a proprietary e-commerce site stocked with more than 20,000 name brand products at competitive retail prices—it has everything from electronics and furniture to appliances, luxury items, exercise equipment and more. Purchases can be financed and paid over six months, interest-free.
In a world of payday loan traps, deposit advance products and high-interest credit cards, it’s nice to know there is a program like Zebit to help people achieve financial freedom. Unlike expensive credit cards or other financing alternatives, Zebit members can avoid accruing interest that comes with revolving debt.
Its no-cost, no-fee, no-penalty financing option helps people better plan, manage and respond to life events responsibly. Taking care of money matters can be complicated and no one does it perfectly, but Zebit can help take the headache and high cost out of managing life expenses—whether you want to finance a new refrigerator when it breaks, pay over time for a TV for the big game, or responsibly tackle the holiday season.
