Unlike a credit card - which is a physical card that may be used to make purchases or get cash advances - a Pathward Line of Credit gives you the flexibility to get any requested funds deposited directly into your bank account. There are no fees to apply4.

Credit limits range between $1,000 to $8,0001.

With a Pathward Line of Credit, you only pay interest charges at a fixed Annual Percentage Rate (APR) of 35.99% on the amount of credit you use and not your total credit limit. The APR will not increase while your Pathward Line of Credit is open. There are no additional fees4. Refer to your agreement for further details.
