The Incognia Mobile App Friction Study found that Credit Sesame exhibited one of most streamlined customer experience across the three categories of mobile banking, investment/trading and other financial services app categories.
Credit Sesame ran simulations using data from over 1 million members and found that of those with poor credit scores between 300 and 500, 70% could see a 19-point increase in their score within a month if they use the $600 stimulus payment to pay down their credit card debt.
Credit Sesame announced Tuesday (June 16) that it has acquired Canadian challenger bank STACK — a move that boosts Credit Sesame’s international presence.
Advanced machine learning and AI required to help customers improve and manage their credit also equips Credit Sesame to create a new category within personal finance. In March, Credit Sesame extended its offer with Sesame Cash, a new digital banking service that integrates cash and credit.
Credit Sesame is expanding to include digital banking, but with the goal of using its better understanding of its customers’ finances.
Credit Sesame's next foray is in the launch of a free, digital banking service — Sesame Cash — to directly compete with large banks.
Credit Sesame, an app that helps users access their credit score and manage their credit, is launching a bank account that rewards users for improving their credit.
With numerous banks, credit card issuers and personal finance sites allowing consumers to check their credit scores for free, these three-digit ratings are no longer as elusive as when the credit education site Credit Sesame launched eight years ago.
