FAQ

What is Kard?

Kard is a loyalty program that helps you earn more credit card rewards wherever you're shopping. We partner directly with financial institutions to integrate our rewards directly into their credit cards' current programs, helping you earn more of the miles, points, or rewards you already know and love. Shop at any of our thousands of retail partners, whether it's online or in-store, and earn up to 20x your points! 

How do I join Kard?

You can opt in to using Kard directly through your credit card issuer. Simply log in to your participating credit card account and hit “Join Kard!” to activate your extra rewards. That’s it!

How much does Kard cost?

Kard is absolutely free for you. We work directly with credit card issuers as well as retailers to help you get the most out of your credit card rewards.

How does Kard compare to other rewards programs?

Kard is unique in that we don't make you learn a new rewards program; we are simply helping you earn more of the credit card rewards you already know and love by partnering directly with your credit cards. Through our in-store offers program as well as our browser extension, we help you earn without changing the way you shop.
