Extra is a consumer finance company on a mission to reinvent everyday banking tools for the next generation. Extra's first product, Extra Debit, is the first debit card that lets you build credit history and earn up to 1% back everywhere you swipe. The goal is to help eliminate the $1T in national credit card debt from fees and interest charges. Extra Debit lets you get the best parts of a credit card while rewarding you for using the money you actually have.

(We couldn't believe this didn't already exist either)

Our crew has been responsible for internet sensations like Down To Shop, Try Not To Smile, and Coasterville — We are funded by some of the best consumer venture firms like Greycroft, Lerer Hippeau, Firstmark Capital, and more.
