After being discharged from chapter 7 bankruptcy and finding it a little difficult to establish credit, the show took a chance on me. I feel its a good start and good overall, but I can't seem to understand why they took a $75 AF out from the $350 limit I was given and added to my balance after I made a couple of purchases? The purchases I made was under $100 but $75 was added. If the $75 was already taken out for an AF,why am I being charged $75? I contacted customer service and they couldn't give me a direct answer. A good card to rebuild credit but a little fishy about the fees....

File for banckruptcy after former spouse got severlt ill and was hospitalized for a month. I filef for Chapter 7. Before this card i already had a capital one platinum, and got the offer in the mail. I applied and got a $500 limit with a $50 AF. 6 months later got a CLI of 700 and a year after to $1000. Then i got a meddage on their website to apply for a CLI. I did and got increased to $2000. It has been a good credit card to rebuild my credit. I am looking to apply to a credit card with no AF to close it out as I don't really need it anymore. I did not have any issues with their website at all. I was able to set up payments with ease. Good rebuilder and I don't know who would opt of the horrendous Premier cc. I got many offers in the mail and it is absurd how much they charge. It is best to get a secured cc.

After a nasty divorce, my credit score just plunged. After rebuilding with a couple of secured credit cards, I decided to accept the mail offer: $50 AF, $500 limit and 22.9% interest. I applied online and was approved for a $1000 limit. Compared with other cards like First Premier, this one looks like an angel.

While I was researching cards for my rebuilding, I came across cards from First Premier and Continental Finance. Then I got an offer in the mail from Show. The AF was $75, CL was $350 and interest was 22%. This is better than FP or Continental so I applied, got approved and have been using it since. I really hope my scores improve a lot within a year so I could get back into "prime" cards.

Got a pre-approved mail - $75 annual fee with $350 credit line. Applied online but did not get approved immediately. Was approved 10 days later. After six months of using the card, I got an increase to $700 (which is nice). Just make sure you pay on time and you should get that increase. And I did not have to pay for it as well.

I am about 2 years out of BK and have a First Premier card. The fees are way over a hundred bucks a month. I got a mail with a pre-approval with a $500 limit and $50 annual fee and 22% interest rate. I was looking to add another card to increase my overall limits and the fee compared to my FP looks very good. I applied online but got the pending decision. Called a week later and was approved for $2000. Couldn't believe my eyes! Now, I am really tempted to dump my First Premier.

To be honest, the fees are actually ok. I got the one with the $75 annual fee. However, the online services are limited. I could not pay from my bank account and they only allowed me to pay twice a month.

My credit got hit so I am not going to complain about fees on credit cards when I am rebuilding. Having said that, the AF is ok. I also have their sister cards - Blaze and Legacy. They are all abou the same. With 3 of these cards, my total AF works out to $175 which is not bad considering First Premier's fees alone are that.

The online payments aren't great compared to regular banks.

I was offered this card for $1,500 limit, 22.4% APR and a $50 annual fee. I decided to accept it since other cards seemed to be charging a lot more fees (AF + monthly fees as well). The APR looks ok as well since I was also getting offers in the 29.9% region. Customer service was friendly and said that after 6 months or so, I should get an automatic CLI if I pay on time. We'll see how that works. But $1500 CL is pretty good since I was getting $300 for my Credit One and First Premier.

I got an offer in the mail. $75 AF and $350 limit. I accepted it and used it every month and PIF as well. After 6 months, I got an auto CLI to $700 without asking. They also did not charge any fees for that. If you are looking for card that gives automatic CLI, this is a good one. Do not get First Premier since they charge you for credit line increases. Also, I used to have Indigo and they do not give CLI at all.

I am rebuilding my credit (which I think is now fair). I got the pre-approved letter in the mail. The terms were $50 AF and $1500 limit. APR was like 22%. I applied online and was approved. This card is sure better than my First Premier (which has a lot more fees and 36% APR).

After using the card for 6 months, I received offers from regular cards and now have a Barclays and Citi. I think this would not have happened without this card.

Before the financial crisis in 2008, my credit was was about 790. Life was good. But the market meltdown hit and my business went under along with my credit score as I struggled with cash flow. It was an uphill climb rebuilding. Show was one of the credit cards which I received an offer for. I was approved and they gave me a $1500 limit which seems very reasonable given the $50 annual fee. I had a couple of other cards with $99 annual fee and a $300 limit. My score was improved and is now in the mid 700s.

The Show credit card is for rebuilders. After the 2009 financial crisis, my home went under and car got repossessed. My score plunged as a result. I got rejected for many cards but actually got an invitation from Show. I applied and got approved with a $50 annual fee.

This card is obviously not for everyone but it sure helped me.
