Cushion is on a mission to democratize access to financial help - not just advice. We’re paving a new tech-forward path in the consumer finance space to build a platform that can eventually manage a person’s day-to-day finances for them.
Our first product is a bot that negotiates bank fees and interest charges on behalf of consumers - a $200 Billion problem in the U.S. each year.

Cushion helps consumers in the U.S. fix and avoid financial mistakes by doing the work for them.
Their first service is a bot that negotiates with banks, on your behalf, to recoup money wasted on bank fees or credit card interest charges. This is a $200 Billion problem affecting over 100 Million people in the U.S. each year.
In the future, Cushion aims to prevent fees before they occur and actively help consumers achieve their financial goals.
