The X1 Credit Card is a card redone from the bottom up. The physical card is made out of 100% stainless steel. Plus, you have the option of creating virtual cards to use online or for one-time use for signing up to free membership trails, etc. Approval and credit limits are not based on your credit score. Rather, it's based on your income and expenses. X1 claims that consumers can expect to be approved for credit limits up to 5X higher than other credit card issuers. The card earns 2X on all purchases and 3 on all purchases if you spend $1,000 or more per month. You will earn the 3 points on the next $6,500 you spend in that month.
- Credit report: Coastal Community Bank will do a hard pull to check your Experian credit report only if you choose to accept approval for the card.
- Approvals based on your income: Approval and credit limits are not based on your credit score. Rather, it's based on your income and expenses. To verify your income, X1 will ask for access to your bank accounts and will review the transactions, including your incoming and outgoing funds. Based on that they will decide if they want to approve you or not and what credit limit they are willing to approve for you.
