These type of companies prey on people that are in the rebuilding stage or those not aware of the various credit options.They can make a bad situation worse.

Re: First Savings Mastercard Pre-Approval want my business

About 2 months after I started rebuilding with only an Orchard (later CapOne) $300.00 & Regular Cap One $300.00 (and Fingerhut), I received a pre-approval from First Savings MasterCard ($750.00 initial CL, $75.00 AF & 19.99% int). I still have this card (8 months) and they have auto increased the limit to $1000.00 (at  6 mos.) and waived the AF for life when I called their regular customer service number to close the account once I got my Discover IT. Leaving for util & AAoA, buying a pack of gum here or there, their C/S was super nice.

 

Just sayin.
