First, a quick recap on the Venmo credit card for context. Venmo, the popular peer-to-peer payment app owned by PayPal, launched its first credit card in partnership with Synchrony Bank in October 2021. The Visa card earns unlimited 3% cash back on your top spending category each billing cycle, 2% on your second highest category, and 1% on other purchases. With no annual fee and some neat features like instant card splitting with Venmo friends, the card aims to bring Venmo’s social experience to a credit card.
