Amazing..But...

This card is amazing. It’s simple cut and dry. I provided 200 bucks, I got a card with limit of 200 bucks. You CAN NOT make a payment online, you need to schedule it thru your bank. First Progress reports to all 3 credit agencies. Use the card and pay it off immediately. Keep your usage down, under 25% and you’ll gain points on your credit. I went from a low 500 to 708 in about 6 months..slow process but it’s worth it!

NO online payments, NO online anything!

No online payments and no online anything. No app no way to review purchases. Easy approval but wow this is weird. Seems like a scam.

 Everything is through the mail. Very hard to talk to someone. Be careful! I will update this in 60 days. 

You have to mail checks or it's very hard to make payments over the phone. No confirmation of payments received and lots of fees. $10 to make a payment. Something doesn't make sense.

I now have it and I hope they do not mess up my credit. There has to be a better option. I mailed a money order today. 14 days early and I will see if my $29 fee is paid. I sent in $50 just to make sure. 

online is way more cost efficient so I have no idea why they only want checks and mailing of everything. 

 


Our Take

For people with limited credit histories, the First Progress Platinum Elite MasterCard® Secured Credit Card offers a way to start building.

What to Like

The First Progress Platinum Elite MasterCard® Secured Credit Card reports monthly to all three major credit bureaus, making it useful for building credit with on-time payments and other responsible use. There’s no minimum credit score or length of credit history needed for approval, and your credit limit may be increased over time without additional deposits.

Look Out For

The card comes with a $29 annual fee. It’s also a secured card, meaning you’ll have to put down a deposit equal to the amount of your initial credit limit.
