Hmmm, I was gonna do the Orchard bank card for him but there might be a problem... On his credit report he has a collection listed from best buy that says HSBC/best buy. Is it the same thing?

Orchard bank is now Capital One

HSBC is now Capital One

Best Buy cards are now handled by Capital One...

 

If he has a collection with Best Buy, I'd avoid Cap1. They may hold a grudge considering he still owes them.

 

The truth is out there...

so today my fiance went to wells fargo to apply for a secured card and was denied. His scores are in the 570s, which is higher than mine are but i was able to get one two weeks ago.

Does your fiance bank with Wells Fargo? If not, then that could be the problem. I find it odd that you can get denied for a secured card as well since there is no risk to them. If you are looking for a secured card try capital one. They report to all three credit bureau and if eligible you can make a $49 deposit for a $200 limit.

 


lol. Zombie thread. This is from three years ago. I do hope she's figure out her card issue by now :smileytongue:


lol i didn't even notice the date. :smileyembarrassed:

US Bank offer's secured cards with rewards.

 

This is a old thread, but to anybody in this situation. Open up a checking account package with US Bank. They will give you a secured card with no AF the first year then $25 per year after that. Plus you get 1pt/$1, a sign up bonus, and even a companion ticket with the right card.

 

Take a look:
