Ok for a starter card, but must monitor.
HeidiGian Cardholder

You must watch your balances on this card and log in to make sure everything is correct. Havent worked out how to cancel the card totally, but it was a good starter card.

It is a terrible Credit card. Once I paid my Balance off, somehow I still owed $340 with no interest. Also when you go to pay on there online portal, some how the money doesn't go through and they charge a return fee as well. The only way you know it went through, is to call up and talk to a live person. I would never Suggest this card to anyone.

Good for those rebuilding

I got this card from Jefferson Capital in return for paying off a debt. I have had the card since January and it has allowed me to get other cards by building my credit. The only frustrating thing is I was told in original paperwork I would l would get a credit limit increase as long as my account remained in good standing, which it has since january, for 6 months. It has been 7 months now and still no increase... The email on the myccpay website was returned as undeliverable.

Communication needs improvement and they need to reward those of us who keep our accounts in good standing with credit limit increases.

I have two cards with capital one now and both just gave me $100.00 limit increases after just a few months of good payment history.I was able to apply for these online with an instant repsonse.

Very slow posting payments
Anonymous Cardholder

Avoid this company at all cost. This is my second time having issues about my payment. I always pay by Amexican Express and spent my payment almost 2 weeks ago. Emblem issuing bank deposited my check June 16, 2016 and haven't posted to my account. I now have two investigations going on with both. I included my account number and my name on the memo. Emblem had to return the late fees ans such. I've never had an issue with capital one or others.

AVOID!
cyclingfan1083 Cardholder

Avoid this lender!  Predactory lending practices; astronomically high interest and fees.  This card hurts your credit more than it helps it.  I closed this account over a year and a half ago and it was still reported as derogatory.  I'm now waiting back to hear whether or not it was removed from my credit history.  AVOID, AVOID, AVOID!!
