giving 4 stars to First Premier makes me call into question the entire card review on this site. It raises serious credibility issues. (or the editor who reviewed it needs to be fired).


Starting Score: EQ 551 TU 548 CK 607on 6/8/12, EX 542(AMEX pull 3/4/12)
Current Score: EQ 710 TU 727 EX 704 CK 719(FAKO-EX 697, EQ 697, TU 697)
Goal Score: 750

What kind of person in his right mind would ever apply for a First Premier? This card should not even exist.

There are multiple tiers of credit; there are individuals in this world (most of the people who actually find this forum aren't among them I'll admit) where all they can get when it comes to unsecured lending is FP.

 

There are legions of people living through PDL shops (Pay Day Lender) who would be able to put themselves waaaaay ahead with a FP card on the assumption they use it responsibly.  The same goes for companies like Cashcall and SpringLeaf, their products are undeniably "ugly" to many of us, but sometimes that's all you can obtain and you have to start somewhere when it comes to building positive credit history.

 

 

Starting Score: EQ 561, TU 567, EX 599* (12/30/11, EX lender pull 12/29/11)
Current Score: EQ 04 673, EQ 8 707, TU 720, EX 702* (09/02/14, EX older)
Goal Score: 700 on EQ '04 (01/01/15)

It's really bad to the bone, IMHO.

Re: The Worst Credit Cards of 2012

FP sent me a preapproval in the mail like two weeks ago. I laughed out so hard (I have a Amex and Discover in my wallet).....LOL. I looked at the fees involved in getting one of their cards, and it was so unbelieveable....these people must be crazy......

Zync from American Express- NPSL
Amex BCE- $1,000
Discover IT- $1,500
Bank of America 1-2-3 Rewards-$1,000
Chase Freedom- $500
Capital One- $500
