If Google Made A Credit Card

By   |   Updated 10 Jun 2024

Here at Credit Card Compare, we thought it would be fun to follow up on our hypothetical Apple iCard and speculate what a Google-issued credit card would be like. This sarcastic visualisation is the result.

Imagine if Google released a Google Credit Card...

It's time to start feeling lucky again... Introducing the new credit card from Google. It can wipe out your tax bill and help you accumulate incredible rewards with SpendRank.

The rates & fees are super low, and you can use it to pay for stuff just about anywhere in the world.


The hypothetical features and benefits of a Google credit card.

Save on your taxes with Google NOTAX

We hardly pay any tax, and neither should you. In fact, on average we pay less that 2.5% tax thanks to our complex web of holding companies around the world. Google Card holders can route payments through our NOTAX platform, which means you can keep more of your money.

Build SpendRank for rewards

Shopping should be rewarding. We generate a rewards score based on our patented algorithm, which we like to call SpendRank. Higher SpendRank translates into incredible rewards. What you buy, where you buy from and how much you spend each month will affect your SpendRank.

Super low rates

Because the Google Card is advertiser-supported, you can get super low rates and fees. In return, our AdWords advertisers get to know a little more about you. It's a win-win for everyone.

Tap in-store or just swipe

For in-store purchases, you can already Tap-to-pay using your Google Wallet smartphone. If you can't travel to an NFC-enabled store, you can swipe your physical Google Card.

Shopping and exclusive coupons

You'll get access to shopping offers and exclusive coupon recommendations based on your Google Search and YouTube viewing history. Also, receive a free $50 voucher to spend at Google Play when you get the card.

Customer support you'll love

Have a customer service question? Need to report a suspicious transaction? Lost your card? Not a problem; there's 24/7 access to our online support forums where Googlers and other Google Card holders can help.

Pure online-only banking

Stay on top of your account using Google's tools. View your paperless statements in Gmail and Google Drive. We'll also auto-categorise your spending and offer helpful tips on how to pay off your balance faster.

Security you can trust

We're the company that can do no evil, and trust is the currency we bank on, which is why we have developed impenetrable security measures that even China's best hackers can't penetrate. Your critical information is safe with Google.
