Athleta is a giving company in so many ways. However, it could go one step further by offering an Athleta rewards debit VISA for those who do not use credit cards, but are very loyal to the Athleta brand. Credit card debt in America totaled $756 billion in 2020. Please help those of us committed to spending within our means by offering an Athleta debit card with rewards.
I'm not sure if you're talking about yourself specifically or in general but I just opened one up after thinking about it for a long time to get the 5x points and I treat my credit card like a debit card. I only use it at Athleta and if I buy something, I pay it off immediately, like it would be coming out of my checking account with a debit card. Of course not everyone treats credit like this, but if it's something you're thinking about doing, this is a good way to think about it!
Hello! Thank you for sharing your experience, I'm in the same boat and prefer debit but realized I wasn't building credit. I've been using a new product called the Sequin Card, which is a debit card that actually builds credit geared towards women. You can use it on Athleta, or wherever Visa is accepted. I signed up and love it! www.sequincard.com.
