Good credit history builds bright futures.
Credit will play a big role in your financial future. When it’s time to buy your first car or first home, good credit may unlock better opportunities.¹
As an authorized user on your parent’s Family Cash Card, you start building credit before you turn 18.
The TL;DR on credit scores.
A credit score is a number between 300 and 850 that’s calculated based on a number of factors from credit reports. Lenders use that score to predict credit behavior — aka, how likely you are to pay them back on time and in full.
A high credit score matters when it’s time to make big money moves. You may get lower monthly payments on your car payments, better options for your college apartment, or an easier application process for your first job.
Earn cash back as a family.
With the Family Cash Card, the whole family earns up to 3% cash back on all purchases.² No categories. No limits on rewards. No kidding. Then, your parents have the option to auto-invest rewards to pay for college³ — or anything else. To get started, your parents can apply for the Family Cash Card in the Greenlight app and add you or anyone in your family as an authorized user.
