DEBX is an early-stage financial technology company that links a consumer’s credit card with their current checking account to provide the benefits of credit with the fiscal discipline of debit.

The company’s mobile app is targeted to the millions of consumers who use debit cards as a convenient payment tool but who prefer the financial discipline by ensuring they do not extend into expensive credit. By using DEBX, these debit card users will retain the financial discipline but will receive the various benefits of a credit card, namely rewards, points, and buyer protection.

The company was sold to Debitize in September 2018.
