18. What Credit Card Companies Don't Want You to Know with Credit Expert Vrinda Gupta

The Credit Card Industry is built on sexism (surprise, surprise, another industry that benefits the patriarchy) –– and not understanding how credit cards, credit scores, and things like reward points benefit men more than women is how it continues to go unchecked. Today’s guest is lifting the veil and taking us on a deep dive into the credit card industry –– how it works, why you might not be getting approved for that credit card even though you have a great salary, and how women are losing out when it comes to rewards. Vrinda Gupta is a former Visa Credit expert, who was denied for a card she helped create and is now on a mission to make sure women can build credit and have access to all the perks of credit cards with her company Sequin.  Pre-Order “Financial Feminist: Overcome the Patriarchy’s Bullsh*t to Master Your Money and Build a Life You Love”: https://bit.ly/3PpHvlC Our HYSA recommendation [affiliate]: http://sofi.com/herfirst100k Episode show notes: https://herfirst100k.com/financial-feminist-show-notes/  The Badass Budget Spreadsheet: https://herfirst100k.com/shop/badass-budget-spreadsheet Our Credit Card Recommendations: https://herfirst100k.com/recommended-credit-cards Follow us on YouTube for behind the scenes and extras: https://www.youtube.com/c/HerFirst100K/featured Skip the line for the Sequin Rewards Card: http://tiny.cc/hfk   Follow Vrinda on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/vrinda.gupta/   Follow Sequin on Instagram: www.instagram.com/sequin_card    Follow Financial Feminist on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/financialfeministpodcast/    Follow Her First $100K on Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/herfirst100k/   Looking for more actionable money advice?
