Bulletin re: marketing of credit card add-on products
Credit card issuers market various “add-on” products to card users, including
debt protection, identity theft protection, credit score tracking, and other
products that are supplementary to the credit provided by the card itself. This
bulletin outlines the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (“CFPB” or “the
Bureau”) expectation that institutions under its supervision and their service
providers offer such products in compliance with Federal consumer financial law.
