São Paulo, January 18, 2023 – Responding to a demand from many customers, Nubank now offers the possibility to request an additional credit card. The function allows roxinho (our regular credit card) or Ultravioleta users to share a portion of their limit with a partner, parents, children, siblings, friends, or whoever else they wish at no extra cost. Also, the additional card can be shared with young people between 12 and 17 years old – all that is required is that the Nubank customer be the legal guardian of the teenager to request it. The function will be made available to the entire user base gradually in the upcoming weeks.
The new feature allows customers to share their credit limit, extending their purchasing power to people they trust. The additional cardholder uses his or her own card for purchases and transactions – with the autonomy to use it even when the primary cardholder is not around and enjoying all its benefits, such as payment in installments. It is also possible to set a maximum limit value on the additional card. Expenses appear together on the invoice so the cardholder can manage the complete invoice on the app, helping to centralize expenses.
The additional card is physical, has only the credit function, and can only be shared with Nubank customers, including those under the age of 18. If the person is not yet a Nubank customer, he can simply open a free account to receive the additional card. The password for the card will be the same as that the primary user already uses for transactions and purchases on the app, and for now, the company allows only one additional card per CPF. It can be offered to anyone over the age of 18 and to young people between the ages of 12 and 17, but the customer needs to be the legal guardian of that teenager. For those who have children, the additional card is an option to teach them how to handle money and financial education.
Those who offer the additional card can keep track of all purchases made through their own application and through notifications. In the coming weeks, this functionality will also be available for those who receive the additional card, facilitating financial organization. It is worth noting that the cardholder is still responsible for the payment of purchases made with the additional card, which will be unified in the main card’s invoice, so it is important to share it only with people you trust.
Even more benefits for those who are Ultravioleta
At no extra cost, the Nubank premium card customers can request an Ultravioleta for another person, extending all the advantages of the Mastercard Black, such as free access to the Mastercard VIP room at Terminal 3 of the Guarulhos Airport, travel and luggage insurance, extended warranty on products, and more. And the person who grants the card also has advantages: all purchases made with it return 1% of cashback that does not expire and grows at 200% of the CDI and collaborate to exempt the Ultravioleta monthly fee, by adding expenses of at least R$ 5 thousand per month, in one or both cards.
To order the additional card, log into the Nubank app, go to “My Cards”, select “Request additional card” and click the next screen to proceed. Then enter the CPF of the person who will use the card, choose your relationship level and the maximum spending amount for the additional card. Confirm the information, enter a delivery address, and press “Confirm order”. After issuance, Nubank will send the card to the registered address. To start using it, the additional card user needs to follow the activation process in the Nubank app itself.
