Editor's Review
Editor's Review

This card has a very reasonable annual fee and unlike other subprime cards, they do not charge any one-time application or processing fee and monthly fees. This is a very reasonable unsecured credit card to get if you are a rebuilder. Prior Bankruptcy is Ok with them and they will also not check income.


Furthermore, you can first check if you are pre-approved before applying. Checking for pre-approval does not involve a hard pull (only a soft pull).

The average score for those approved for this card is 611 (according to cardholders reviews below).

Credit Karm prequalified me for this card even though the pre approval site kept sending me to secured cards. Luckily if you apply through CK it bypasses that I was approved which is as it should since I have a few other rebuilders (CapOne, Walmart, CreditOne). Will have this for a year then close when I move onto the higher tier.

They may not charge a monthly fee, but they do charge an annual fee of 99.00. So you will need to watch out for those of you who rack up the purchases as this will make you go over your limit. You will start out with a low limit, then after about 1 year a credit limit increase. Your score does not have to be 611 to qualify. This is based on the information you give and other credit cards you have. Credit utilization matters with every issuer. You may have a 700 credit score and max out your cards one month and you will not receive this card.

I got this card along with 2 other cards when my credit score was 572. I like the card. But, they do not offer CLI. For this reason I do not use the card often. Next year I think I may close the account.

Do to medical I filed for bk.last year! Since that time I have a CL of $3000. In my research also used credit karma! I was able to get cap one 0 annual fees, also cap one quick silver,also credit one and indigo with a small $300 CL. Called customer service to complain about the annual fee told them to keep their card they waved the fee! So I kept the card never used it! Like my other cards I only use what I need and pay them off monthly!! To keep score climbing I have 5 credit cards within a year of bk! If you practice this it won't take long to build your credit!! So yes food card payoff before payment is due you won't pay interest! I do this with all my cards!

This card is not bad. I have an annual fee; I believe it is about $59. The only complaint I have is how slow the credit increases or maybe it doesn't. I am trying to get to a 700 credit score, and an increase would certainly help. I have made payments consistently, and have paid this credit card off completely twice, and it is still $300. It is the only credit card I have that has never increased.

After reading all of the reviews, I see most people get approved for a $300 CL. That's what I got and I wish there was an option to apply for a CLI.

Low limit with annual fee but it is one of the few unsecured cards that i could get. Hate that they don't offer CL increases though so I probably won't keep them more than a year or two.

Trying to improve my credit score and this is always suggested by credit sesame for a $300 limit. I have a 586 score and in very good payment history with my other 2 credit cards, car loan and 2 department store cards. I kept having problems with them processing my payments. Therefore i was put on block REALLY and charged fees and reported late. Customer service is poor and this was a waste of time and something i will have to take the hit for, told to close my acct. Asap! Never again.

I have been rebuilding my credit for the last year and a half. I already have a couple of secured cards and also a Fingerhut account. I applied and was actually denied by Credit One so I gave this card a shot and got approved. My annual fee is $35. About 8 months after I got the card, my scores are up to 670. I think this is a combination of me getting another trade line and sparingly using my available credit.

I actually got rejected by First Premier! So thankful I got approved for this one. And it appears that the fees are lower than FP. So I guess this is a blessing in disguise. CL was $300.

Am giving this a 3 star because they approved me where others have not. But there is an annual fee but at least no monthly fee that others have. I plan to keep this for maybe 18 months and hopefully by then, I could get a no annual fee card.

There appears to be lots of complaints about this card especially about the annual fees and how folks were not pre-approved for the unsecured version. As long as you read the terms and conditions, there should be no issues. There are a few versions of this card. The best being the one with no annual fee. If also have to pre-qualify. As long as you pre-qualify (soft pull), then you simply apply for the real thing.

Remember, this card is for rebuilding. Use only about 20% of your limit and pay on time and in full. Your scores will increase if you follow this practice.

Actually got an offer in the mail. So I did some research and many folks on credit karma also got similar offers saying they pre-qualified but when they went online to fill out the online forms, they got secured card offers instead.

So I decided to apply online and said to myself that if they sent me to the secured card page, I'll just skip it because I already have the Cap One. What I was looking for was for an unsecured card. Thankfully, I got taken to the unsecured page and got approved.

I did quite a bit of research on credit cards since I was recovering from BK and need to rebuild. One consistent theme about this card is that most sites say they are BK friendly. So I decided to give it a shot. Went through the pre-qual and got approved. For that, I give them a 4-star.

I already got the Cap One Platinum before I got this card. I simply wanted to increase my number of lines and also my absolute CL in my report. It really is not the best card but when you are a rebuilder, you just accept what you get approved for.

Have mixed feelings about this card. There is only an annual fee compared to others like First Premier. But after months of having this card, I still have not gotten any credit increase. With my Credit One, I got an increase from $300 to $600 after 4 months. Also got increases on my Fingerhut account. So I am a little disappointed in this aspect.

Had to close business. Credit got dinged so I am in the rebuilding phase. Chose this card because according to my research, the fees are reasonable compared to others. Score was in the low 500s when I got approved.

Actually, I've read a few forums where folks did not even get pre-approved and got routed to a page with secured card offers. Thought it might happen to me but luckily I got approved. Limit was merely $300 but I guess I have to start somewhere.

Score was 637 when I got this card just recently. Reason of me choosing this is the "relatively low annual fee" compared to others. That is why I am giving this a 3 star. Have had no experience with customer service yet. Gave a 1 star for benefits cos there are no real rewards or anything with this card.

Have had a couple of secured cards for about 3 years and finally decided to get an unsecured card. Was approved for $300 and an annual fee. The reason I chose this card was because others seem to have application fees and a monthly fee on top of an annual fee.

With my secured cards, I always used only 20$ of my credit limits and paid them off every month. That probably explains why I got approved and many others with similar scores as I have not.

Credit score went into a free fall after my job loss. This was one of the few cards that took a chance on me so I am grateful. What I like is that it is just one simple annual fee. I make it a point to send my payment way in advance.

There are actually a few versions of this card. There apparently is a $0 annual fee version (saw it on the app page). I got the one with $59 annual fee. Not too happy with the CL. But I guess this card is better than others like Surge and First Premier. I hope to be able to get a no annual fee card in the next 18 months.
