Looking to re-build credit

Right now my FICO score is 559.  Me an My husband are trying to rebuild our credit. I need opinions on what secured card would be best to help us rebuild. Thanks!

Capital One has a decent secured card. You can also try a credit union some of them are good with secured cards.

Welcome to the forums!!!

 

I agree with Cap1 secured or a local CU. You may have to resort to the dreaded First Premier or CreditOne but you have to start somewhere.
