Introducing Stake Metal: Luxury banking services anywhere you rent

June 20, 2023

CEO, Co-founder

Metal cards are traditionally a marker of elite wealth – gate kept by exorbitant fees, high minimum spends, and other inaccessible thresholds.

But we believe that renters shouldn’t have to spend like ballers to feel like one.

Stake Metal is sleek new take on our classic Stake Visa®️ Debit card. Its look is entirely redesigned, with a wonderful hand and balance: an updated color palette of royal navy and Cash Back green, gently accented with crisp white Visa and Stake logos.

Stake Metal is a luxury banking services experience – without the luxury debt – that boosts renter happiness and builds financially healthy rental communities that outperform.

Hello Stake Metal. Goodbye Debt.

With Stake Metal, residents at Stake properties can put the ultimate financial status symbol in their wallet, with none of the stumbling blocks or fees.

The Stake Metal debit card is exclusively available in the 50,000 homes offering Stake nationwide, more durable than plastic, and, most importantly, more rewarding.

Stake Metal carries no debt and no high-interest payments, and always pays Stakers with cold hard cash when they pay rent, build savings, or shop anywhere. Because Stake Checking is FDIC-insured and is not credit-based, Stakers earn an incredible 4.5% interest rate on all savings —  as much as Apple and more than most cards available to America’s renters

Residents gain access to Stake Metal when they pay their rent through StakePay, our rental management solution that sends residents even more Cash Back every month when they pay rent with their Stake card.
