Is ‘The Smartest Credit Card Ever Made’ Actually That Smart?

My list


The much hyped X1 credit card, billed as “the smartest credit card ever made” is now finally available to the general public, but is it as innovative as its marketing suggests? Indeed, there are some unique perks, along with a good rewards rate—especially for a no-fee card—although the reward redemption options are more limited than what you see with other more traditional cards.

Backed by PayPal co-founder Max Levchin, the X1 has “smart” offerings you don’t see with traditional lenders. This includes the ability to automatically end free trials, cancel subscription payments in one click, and create one-time use virtual cards that offer enhanced privacy.
