About

Company

We are a Techstars-backed financial technology company based out of Atlanta. Our mission is to empower consumers to more easily make smarter financial decisions. Our award-winning app helps users manage their credit card accounts and maximize their credit card rewards and savings.

MaxRewards was started by two friends who believed that everyone should be able to get more from their credit cards. Anik, who had been maximizing credit card rewards for years, introduced the concept to David, who had just one card. David was blown away by how much rewards and savings he was missing out on and by how difficult it was to maximize rewards! Surely, as the adage goes, there had to be an app for that.

Except, there wasn't. There are a lot of resources to help people learn how to maximize credit card rewards. However, there's virtually no tool that helps people actually maximize rewards. And so the pair created MaxRewards, the first and only app that makes it easy to maximize credit card rewards and savings.

MaxRewards was the 2018 winner of the FinCon FinTech Startup Competition, a finalist in the 2019 FinTechSouth Innovation Challenge and 1 of 10 companies (out of 400+) selected to be part of the 2019 Techstars Atlanta program. MaxRewards is used by thousands of users, who are collectively tracking over $14M in credit card rewards.
