PayPal and Synchrony announce New Cashback Credit Card That Offers 3% Cash Back on all PayPal Purchases
SAN JOSE, Calif., April 5, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- PayPal (NASDAQ: PYPL), today announced the introduction of the new PayPal Cashback credit card, issued by Synchrony, which gives customers even more cash back when they shop with PayPal. With the new card, customers earn unlimited 3% cash back when paying with PayPal at checkout – online, mobile, or in-store with PayPal QR Code where eligible – and unlimited 2% cash back on all other purchases anywhere Mastercard is accepted.
More than 60% of American consumers are now shopping both online and in-store, as well as across multiple spend categories1. As their shopping behaviors evolve from the pandemic, consumers are on the lookout for flexible ways to make smarter purchases and maximize rewards wherever they shop. The new card has no annual fee2, no category restrictions and can be added to a customer's PayPal wallet for easy, fast, and secure checkout.
"Our customers shopped across 34 different categories last year showcasing the diversity of their needs and interests, and we wanted to build a credit product that was flexible and better matched rewards with their spending behaviors," said Susan Schmidt, VP Consumer Credit, PayPal. "The new PayPal Cashback credit card was designed so PayPal customers can earn rewards and get cash back for everyday purchases no matter what categories they spend in that month."
"Together with PayPal, we continue to build on the seamless integration that has been a hallmark of our partnership, allowing us to enhance rewards to our customers and improve the user experience," said Bart Schaller, CEO of the Digital Platform at Synchrony. "Plus, it's easy to use and manage – the new PayPal Cashback credit card is sure to be a customer favorite."
Existing eligible PayPal 2% Cashback credit card holders will automatically be upgraded into the new 3% cash back card structure and can start earning higher cash back rewards whenever they use their card to check out with PayPal. The new PayPal Cashback credit card will soon be available to select customers who can apply through the PayPal app and www.paypal.com and will continue to roll out in the coming weeks.
