I applied for the card and was approved for a $500,limit which was great since no other card would work with my credit. I bought 2 things and paid it off immediately. Within 40 days of having it I got a $300 increase and my credit went up 15 pts I was even approved for a real credit card since I got this and its only been 3 months

I will NEVER use Fingerhut again! Worst company to go through to build your credit. I was 2 days late and they reported it to my credit as 30 days. They also closed my account after I paid it off which also hurt my credit score. I called them to discuss why they reported my account wrong and the lady I talked to was very rude and wouldn't listen to what I was saying. She transfered me to another person who hung up on me. I will never use them again and I will tell everybody I know not to use them. Very unprofessional!
