You shouldn’t have any misconceptions about a building card it will have high interest and middle of the road foreign customer service (typically) I had a 550 Equifax and a Transunion score of 535 when I received this card...It allowed me to build my credit to a 650 and receive a Chase with a $5000 limit a year later. Advise ....pay on time pay a little over if you have it and please always keep your purchases below 30% of your limit before the statement is to be generated. Don’t use it between due date and statement release date at all!! It will make your balance high and max your card on lower end credit limits “like mine $300”. I don’t need a credit increase I’ve moved on with my sites on a American Express. This card is a kick starter that’s all. Godspeed credit seekers. Do it well and six months your should be in a better place.

This was one of my first credit cards out of bankruptcy. While obviously I was greatful they gave me a chance, they give you a firm $300 credit line. If your smart about your credit, you should know you should never go above utilizing 30% of your limit. Well 30% of $300, is $90. You can't do much with that. It's not even worth having, and it did nothing for my credit score. Half the time they did not even report my payments. And, they do not, under any circumstances, give credit line increases. I ended up cancelling my card after 3 years of being with them. There are other cards out there that will give you a chance with much more of a heallthier credit line. (First Premier, Matrix Card, Surge, First Savings Credit Card, Build Card, Fortiva and even Ollo).
