I got this card with one thing in mind: building my credit. Application process was simple, approved quickly for $200. Knowing you must shop from their catalog with some items marked up and steep shipping, just started off buying one thing. The quality of the product was great. Paid more than minimum and always on time, paid it off. Was offered a temporary credit increase to $400 that would go back to original credit of $200 without making a new credit purchase. Was able to get my son the Nintendo Switch Lite he wanted for Christmas with this card. I had to utilize more credit than I wanted but used the "no payments until March" offer that came with the credit line increase catalog, and have been making payments anyways to get it paid down as quickly as possible. Use this card responsibly and there shouldn't be any issues. Payments post right away and they update the bureaus regularly.

People complain about items being overprized! Umm helloooo it is to fix credit and people with bad credit, what you expect? For items to be cheap with low interest? Fingerhut is great to build credit!! Yes you have to pay $30 deposit at first but the monthly payments are great overall

Great to have on hand
Johnboy469 Cardholder

I got this a few months ago and have purchased several items on the site. I pay twice a month and in the time I've had it they doubled my available balance twice. Has been great for my credit!

Great for no or bad credit
Mykelalynn Cardholder

I opened up a Fingerhut account to help my credit score.  They have numerous items you can buy and while yes, some of them are a little higher than you can get in stores, this does help build your credit.  My score has gone up because they do report to the credit bereaus.  I would highly recommend checking them out.

Great Start for Rebuilding credit
azach84 Cardholder

I was given a $750 and I've used it for a couple of items and paid overtime. It's help rebuild my situation. The drawback is everything is marked up and the shipping is expensive. You can find the same or comparable items cheaper elsewhere and you'd want to save or the conveniece of their line of credit.

Excellent for credit building!
Njnix Cardholder

Yes the interest rate is high. But buy something small and pay on time for a few months. I started at 700$ and a year later I’m at 2600$ limit.  They report to all 3 bureaus. Can’t complain.

Easy credit builder
CreditFave Cardholder

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

Good card to build credit
Vampirebri Cardholder

This card does what it says it will; it helps rebuild your credit. People complain about shipping costs, interest rates, etc. What do you expect if you have poor credit? Fingerhut was the first to offer me credit, and I have followed their rules. I was increased from $ 200 to $2000 CL. They have faithfully reported my payments to credit bureaus and my credit rating soared by 70 points. I now have 14 cards, and I hang on to Fingerhut because I'm a loyal customer.

How long to get 70pts

Dec 10, 2019

That is completely asinine to have 14 different credit cards. The point is to build your credit so you can get a loan for a house or car, not cycle credit cards. Sounds like you will or going to have a problem in the near future and will be in the exact same position with bad credit and the only people that will lend you money is finger hut.

Great for building credit!!
AB58 Cardholder

I love Fingerhut! I have been ordering from them for years. Yes the prices are a little higher but you can have your items first and then pay your monthly payment which is nice. It helps people that don't have great credit and they increase your limit quite often. Especially if your on time and make extra payments. I would recommend Fingerhut to anyone..great products too!
