    Cash App offers fun and unique card designs for its users, which they can design themselves in as little as five minutes. Creating Cash App card designs is easy and allows you to express your personality every time you use your card for purchases.

    What do the Cash App cards look like?

    The Cash App card comes in plastic or metal and looks similar to your average debit card. Below is an example of the basic dark cash app card, with no design added. You’ll see it has an RDIF chip in it as well:

    What colors do Cash App cards come in?

    The plastic Cash App card colors are black, white, and glow in the dark. The black and white versions are the free cash card’ option. However, the glow-in-the-dark version will cost you $5. 

    Note: The glow in the dark option only glows when it’s been exposed to light. Since it spends most of its time in your wallet or purse, it’ll need “charged” to glow.

    There was previously a cash app x hba card available, but it no longer looks to be available at the time of this writing.

    How do I customize my Cash App card?

    The next step of customizing your Cash App card designs is easy. On the Cash App home screen, select the small card icon at the bottom of the screen. Here, you’ll see the card benefits and a green button that says “Get Free Cash Card.” Click it to see your cash card options and create your custom design.

    Next, you’ll select your card color. You’ll see black, white, glow in the dark, Chameleon metal, and black metal. Click on the color you’d like to use.

    Once your card color is selected, you’ll click “Personalize Card.” Here’s where the fun begins with the new Cash App card designs. The best part is that you have three options to personalize the card to your style.

    1. Show your $Cashtag. Choose to show or hide your $Cashtag on the card in the upper right corner. You can’t move it to a different location, but it is up and out of the way of your main design area.
    2. Emojis. There are about 60 emojis to choose from and some letters and symbols. You can scale them up or down, rotate them to fit the card, and add as many as you like.
    3. Freehand drawing. The last option is to create your own custom drawing. I consider myself artistic (but no freelance artist), and this was not too difficult. To get the cleanest, most controlled lines, you’ll want to use a stylus. However, if you are ok with the design not being super smooth, a finger works fine. The drawings contrast nicely again a white card or a dark card, and the drawing color changes based on the card colors.

    Can I put a picture on my Cash App card?

    No, you cannot upload any photos or images to your Cash App card designs. The available options are provided by Cash App and include the letter, emojis, and freehand drawing.

    Why get a Cash App Debit Card?

    Cash App is a mobile application that allows users to make mobile payments and deposits with a Cash App bank account. While an old-school plastic debit card isn’t required to use Cash App, having one can be very handy when making everyday purchases. However, the Cash App card works wherever VISA is accepted (no fees!) and allows you to withdraw cash from ATMs ($2 fee). 

    Another huge selling point to getting your Cash App debit card is that it has perks called Boosts. Boosts give you instant savings on your purchase. Select your boost in the app, make a purchase, and get instant savings. 

    You can only select one boost at a time, but the options are immensely varied. Some available boosts include Chewy, Walmart, any coffee shop, USPS, Wendy’s, Chick-fil-A, DoorDash, Xbox, Whole Foods Market, Twitch, Taco Bell, and many more brand name stores! Discounts vary from a flat amount off (like $1) to a percentage off (like 15% of your total purchase). Discounts are available at many retailers, from the grocery store to coffee shops.

    The debit card is available to anyone 13 and older, but minors will need a parent or guardian to sign off before ordering one.
