The price you pay to rebuild bad credit Helpful to 19 out of 21 people

I opened my account with First Premier more than a year ago. I have two cards with them actually. The reason I decided to apply for this card after recieving a pre-approved letter in the mail was because I wanted to restablish my credit because it was damaged. Yes, there are high interest fees, and monthly fees, and yearly fees, and yes an activation fee, but this is the price you pay when you have bad credit. You don't have a lot of options. I was able to work on my credit and slowly but surely, my credit score is rising and I have even been approved for a capital one credit card. My advice is, if you want to establish your credit, this is the card for you. But for al ong term card for use, this is not ideal. I plan on canceling this credit card once my credit score is where I'd like it to be.

Useful for rebuilding Helpful to 32 out of 35 people

This is a great card for rebuilding your credit. I applied and have increased my score by almost 150 points over the past year. Unfortunately, my year of waived monthly fees just expired so I am applying for another card to replace this one as the $10 monthly fee is quite steep with a small credit limit and almost no use of the card.

Garbage. Easily frauded, clean up messy Helpful to 56 out of 61 people

I got this card for the 0% intro special they offered at one point. There were a lot of fees but that wasn't the issue, I was aware of them and as other have mentioned, sometimes its just the price to pay to rebuild if it's not that great. Anyway, it was my 3rd open card I was closely monitoring my credit and found 3 fraudulent charges after about 6 months!! In about two weeks time, 3 ($50-$100) charges showed up from various websties in europe that I'd never heard of (and that disappeared within a month, I know because I went to each one as it was listed on my bill). I disputed the charges and found it to be a painful process: call, fill out and fax forms, call, call, call, etc. They did eventually take the charges off, but by the time they did, I was ready to close my account. So I paid the balance off completely all at once and stopped using it, expecting to close the account as soon as the payment processed. Then, once it did, I called to close, but they couldn't let me because 3 MORE similar fraudulent charges were processed or pending. I repeated the awful process and after an excruciating 3 months of dealing with this mess, I was finally able to close the account, though customer service retention efforts were annoying and went on and on. The main thing they touted was sending updates to all 3 credit bureaus each month. Never had any fraudulent charges anywhere else, ever.
