Applied bank

Is Applied bank a  good rebuilder credit card? I was denied by several other secured card companies. Also, will Applied bank convert to unsecured?

Re: Applied bank

Ive heard some good, some bad about this card but they seem pretty good at accepting people.  No clue on the going unsecured though, which banks have you tried to get one from?  Have you tried going thru a local credit union?

[ Edited ]

I started out with Applied (It was  CountryCross Bank)  The fees are exorbitant.  You pay for every cli. It was like 100.00 each time I got one.  My highest cl before closing was 1575  They wanted to charge me so much a month when I got over 1000 so I closed.  

 

They are pretty bad but served their purpose   Probably on a par with Premier.

 

I foound HSBC and Cap One although cheap with clis to be better with their fees.

Re: Applied bank

Paying for CLI's is an old Providian trick. It's a scam.

Not for long. The fee harvester cards are going to be slammed by the Credit CARD Act of 2009 in two months. It will be interesting to see if they are able to reformulate their scam game to circumvent the new legal provisions.

Re: Applied bank

My experience has been good with Applied Bank, currently I have 3 cards with them.  Payment posting has been excellent when done via Bill Pay at my bank, it credits the same day.  The only down side is reporting to only 2 bureaus, Trans and Experian, not Equifax which is what 90% of lenders use in my state.  I highly recommend Ordchard Bank, and Public Savings Bank for great secured rebuilding cards.

Re: Applied bank

How is that possible? They advertise that they report to EQ.

Re: Applied bank

I have applied to BOA and Capital One and was denied. I figured this would help me because I have no revolving accounts. But i have some baddies on credit as well.

Re: Applied bank
