CITI CD WITH SECURED CREDIT

[ Edited ]

Card.  Sounds great as they pay 4.0 interest on the CD. 

 

Has anyone heard of this?  I found it when I was looking for CD rates.  What a great rebuilder  sounds like!!!!!

 

The site is www.bankvibe.com.

 

They also list the 5 least trusted banks with HSBC and CAP  ONE right there.

 

Very interesting and gives all bank rates and much more.

Re: CITI CD WITH SECURED CREDIT

Yes, I applied with them 2 days ago. They took my money out today, but I don't know if I've been approved yet. My Equifax score is 635, so we'll see. 

Starting Score: TU=595, EQ=635
Current Score: TU=650, EQ=629
Goal Score: TU=725, EQ=725

Re: CITI CD WITH SECURED CREDIT

Why would they turn you down?  You are buying a CD which they use to secure the card.

 

Did you see the least trusted banks on this link?

Interesting!  Citi was right in the middle of the top 5 Banks Not Trusted - coming in at #3, if I'm remembering right.

 

Edited for clarity.

Re: CITI CD WITH SECURED CREDIT

can you add more money to your cd as you go, or do you have to stick with whatever your initial deposit was?

I don't know if yoou can add on.  check out the site.  But the interest is great opposed to getting nothing from most secured cards.
