Doubled Credit Line

Credit Karma Member

Merrick is great for building credit. Doubled as it said it would with appropriate on time payments. Annual fees compute to monthly fee not annually. Be mindful the more you spend the higher your minimum payment will be. Easy app and payments. Once you build credit and reach the 700+ credit scores, you can slowly eliminate annual fee cards. Credit is all an algorithm.
