What is difference betweenOrchard Bank Secured & Household Bank Secured...

What is difference between Orchard Bank Secured & Household Bank Secured?

 

Is Orchard easier to qualify for?

 

Does anyone know the qualifications for the Household Bank Secured Card?

 

Thanks

Household bank owns Orchard bank.  Both report to all three as HSBC. 

 

Orchard will give a card to anyone.  I don't know if HSBC secured has any higher standards.

 

Orchard secured - 7.9% APR, $35 annual fee waived first year, minimum deposit $200.

 

HSBC secured - 12.99% APR, $35 annual fee, minimum deposit $300.

I'm even more confused now, when I went online to find Orchard Bank, the application comes up as Intermountain Community Bank.  Any thoughts?

Intermountain comunity bank is the bank that Orchard owns that holds your deposit.  HSBC owns Orchard.  Orchard owns Intermountain Community Bank. All one big happy family.
