In a fast-paced digital world, it's no surprise that free debit cards have swooped in to replace the need to carry cash or those clunky old checkbooks. With just a simple swipe, insert, or tap, a free debit card makes banking on the go a breeze by giving you direct access to the cash in your bank account without relying on borrowed funds like a credit card.

Here, we’ll explore the benefits of using a free debit card for everyday transactions, and how Varo’s no fee debit card can help you unlock hassle-free purchases with your Varo Bank Account.

Make cashless purchases with ease

No more fumbling through your wallet for cash at the register or digging out your checkbook to make payments—it’s time to step up your game with easy, cashless transactions. 

With your trusty debit card at your fingertips, you can seamlessly make purchases at most retailers, venues, and service providers. On the off chance you still need a quick cash fix, there are no fees to withdraw cash from your Bank account at 40,000+ free ATMs using your no fee Varo debit card1.

Go digital for added convenience

Prefer to leave your debit card at home and use your phone to shop? Simply save your free virtual debit card to your Apple® Wallet or Google® Wallet to make fast, secure payments wherever digital wallets are accepted.

As an added bonus, you can usually store your virtual debit card info securely on trusted vendor sites to make easy purchases and bill payments with just a few clicks. No more need to go find your card every time you’re ready to hit that checkout button!

Access to your funds with no debt or interest

Unlike credit cards, free debit cards give you direct access to the cash you already have on hand in your bank account. Every purchase deducts money instantly, which can be a big help if you’re trying to only spend what you can afford without racking up debt. 

Plus, since you’re not borrowing money, there are no monthly interest charges on purchases. You’re in full control of your funds with a direct line to your own money. 

No credit score? No problem

You don’t need a shining credit score or a long credit history to get a free debit card. Opening a bank account with a debit card can provide a safe haven for managing your money without any restrictive credit requirements.

Even better? Applying for a Varo Bank Account with no fee debit card included won’t impact your credit score. Period. And, if you’re just embarking on your credit-building journey or looking to give your credit score a boost, the Varo Believe Credit-Builder Card can be a great place to start2.

Stay one step ahead with security

Get the peace of mind you deserve with built-in security that protects both your hard-earned money. Nowadays, most debit cards come equipped with embedded microchips that generate dynamic data, making them extremely difficult to counterfeit.

Here’s how Varo’s no fee debit card helps you shop confidently with your privacy protected:

With the Varo app, you can track your debit card transactions effortlessly. Realtime mobile alerts make it even easier to keep an eye on your account and help avoid any surprises later.
