In May, Riot Games announced that Credit Karma, an American multinational personal finance company had joined them as the Official Fintech Partner of the 2021 North American VALORANT Challenger Series. The news came through the official website of VALORANT. The free-to-use consumer finance platform which currently boasts over 100 million members in North America will be supporting VCT NA action as the competition enters Stage 3.
Throughout VCT Stage 3 — North America, Credit Karma will present the Instant Karma* Moment, an in-game highlight that showcases a moment when players help lead their team to victory through selfless action. Baiting a favorable trade through a risky swing, setting up the perfect entry by feinting at a different site, resurrecting a crucial ally, or communicating a decisive piece of intel — these instances of positive karma often decide rounds, if not entire matches, and the Instant Karma Moment will be there to capture and celebrate them.

According to the announcement, Instant Karma Moment won’t be confined to the VCT NA broadcast. Outside of the tournament’s mainstream, Credit Karma will support smaller VCT NA creators and aspiring pros during Stage 3, providing gift subs for select live VCT NA streams during match days.
Credit Karma will also offer a bonus to the VALORANT community for signing up for a new Credit Karma Money Spend account. Credit Karma Money is a money experience available on Credit Karma’s platform which simplifies everyday spending, freeing more time to focus on the game. North American players who sign up for a Credit Karma Money Spend account can receive $10 that they can use towards their next VALORANT in-game purchase.
The 2021 VCT – Challengers NA continues on Thursday, July 1 with VCT Stage 3 – Challengers NA Week 1 Open Qualifiers. You can catch all the action live at twitch.tv/valorant or twitch.tv/nerdstgamers.
