Our Story

Smart technology is revolutionizing the way we live. Anti-collision systems in vehicles, smart home security systems, and severe weather warnings straight to our watches keep us safe and help us make better decisions.

And while technology has evolved in personal banking and finance (think remote deposit capture and real-time balance alerts), intelligent technology is almost nonexistent for the average consumer. The tools they use are as dangerous as ever. They don’t help them make smarter financial decisions or navigate complex situations.

What’s worse, credit cards have compounded the problem. They lure consumers in with the promise of rewards and then trip them into make costly mistakes – mistakes that translate to over $163B in profit each year. 

Millions of Americans suffer the stress, shame and shackles of credit card debt. 40% of Americans are buried in credit card debt and another 30% are constantly on the precipice. The average revolving credit card debt per household is $8,398. America suffers from deep and pervasive stress about spending money that affects health, relationships and financial freedom. It’s no wonder credit card debt is the #1 fear of millennials.

Spyn is different. In a world that’s over-stressed about money, we’re empowering people to make smart financial decisions so they can worry less and live more. 

Spyn is much more than a simple credit card. Spyn’s mobile app acts like a financial adviser in your pocket.

  • Spyn connects to your bank account, models your cash flow and shows you how much you can safely spend each month. Spyn understands your finances and gives you the information you need to make real-time smart decisions.
  • Spyn monitors your credit score and helps you set financial goals.
  • Spyn makes success easy. Spyn limits your ability to spend into debt and auto-pays your bill after every transaction, so your never caught off guard by your credit card. We also give you real cash rewards that you can save, spend or use to pay off other debt.
  • Spyn protects you from fraud and makes it easy to set up virtual cards to give you control over which merchants can charge your card.

Spyn aims to prevent your mistakes, not profit from them.
