I thought this card would help
Steph34w Cardholder

I thought this card would help build my credit actually I was wrong!!! Got tired of the inconvenience with trying to pay them other than bill pay. Then I decided to close my account in which they took my initial deposit ?. Also to top that off they said I owe them for a I owe you for a payment when you got all your money with my intial deposit. This company is a ripoff never again. They damage my credit by reporting I was late when I never do not mess with First Progress period !!!

No problem what so ever
nicomccart67 Cardholder

I was approved for $200 and as long as I set up a checking account to withdrawal from every month by the due date I never ever had a single issue.

Hey!, you mean like, you set up a checking account to have JUST the $$$ to pay for the monthly card fee?? I don't use banks... but as I'm 32 now.. I need to start getting with the program and building my ******* credit.. score is surprisingly low for never having anything in my name.. but also not sure how credit TRULY works.. I mean I do... but I don't?!?! haha
anyways yeah just wondering if you meant you made a checkings account- to just have the credit card payment go out of that, automatically, every month? God! I wish everything can just be cash/trade again!!! LOL XD XD XD

They post payments late to get late fees even though you have tracking to prove it, they sometimes dont send you a bill, their customer service is awful, tey cut off phone payments early to get more ate fees. Worst card ever, closing the account in January. Fed up

Armpit of credit cards
bowerymott Cardholder

Worst service, worst communication and even worst credit score.   Your score will actually decrease with this card.  Defeats the purpose of trying to improve your credit.  Like others have professed, RUN LIKE HELL FROM THIS CARD AND THIS COMPANY

Paid $49 for elite low interest card.
JohnB60 Cardholder

They switched the apr on me on the 2nd month, and i called customer support many times. No help or resolve. They took and kept my deposit, and saddled me with a $144 debt as well. STAY AWAY from this scamming, cheating and lying company. RUN!

Did not refund deposit
Jabette66 Cardholder

When i had this card a few years ago, i kept up on the payments-never had a problem with that. HOWEVER- i don't know how it is now but, when after about a year and a half i finally called and asked when i can get my deposit back and my credit limit raised, the guy told me they didn't do that. So i paid it off and cancelled. Don't go here.

Could it have been the inquiry on your credit report that caused your acore to drop? Or any other factor? If your payment wasn't late then it wasn't the creditor that caused your score to drop. It was some other factor.
