Re: USAA Credit card question

My credit score is pretty low;however, my husband is a vet so I asked if he would sign up for USAA.  Well, I wanted a AMEX secured, but for wanted the MC.  I received a secured card with the CD!  It's my first secured card.  I am saving up to apply for the Secured AMEX with $1500.00.  This is a great start in the right direction. 

Starting Score: 555/567/570- Oct-2015:619 (TU)601 (EX)/608(EQ) Goal:680-700; Current Cards(VS-$500),(J.Crew-$250),(Eddie B-$250),(Loft-$250),(The Limited-$150),(Modell's-$300),(Amazon-$800), (Nordstrom-$300), (Discovered-IT secured-$200),(Amex USAA-secured $550), (Cap J-$700), (Cap Prem-$700), (Cap Quick-$950), (BOA-99/500), (Merrick-$1k)

[ Edited ]

I have a secured CC with them and Friday applied for an unsecured line and was given a 5500 CL with a 670 EQ with 3 INQs on my EQ file.  I believe the 2 years of having their secured product with perfect payment history helped a lot and later this month I will receive my deposit back plus interest Smiley Happy


So yes, their product is great! Helped me so much
