Re: What score do I need to get a secured card

Quick update...


Spent a half on hour trying to figure out how to send my security deposit with Cap1 only to find they approved me for an unsecured card instead of the secured one, which is of course, a very pleasant surprise. Thanks again everyone for your counsel.

You might want to talk to some local CUs. They are often more flexible and user-friendly than banks. They should be able to give you *some* idea before pulling your credit if you could get a secured card with them.

 

 


+1  My CU was VERY supportive of my quest to rebuild my credit.  It's best if you have a decent relationship - established checking/savings. I got a quick loan from them, and paid it on time, in full, a few years back. I've been with them for 8 years, and they approved a $500 Visa (unsecured), with no annual fee, and a good interest rate. I didn't think they would give it to me.  I would have probably passed on the Orchard Bank unsecured card,  if I'd known they were so willing to work with me.

 

Credit Rebuild Start Date (3/12)
Oakland County CU Visa ($500) | Capital One Quick Silver One ($600) | Capital One Secured MC ($200) | Walmart ($550) | PayPal Credit ($1000) | Jared ($3500) | Victoria's Secret ($850) | Gettington ($3500) | Zales ($1000) | Amazon Store Card ($850) | NewEgg Preferred ($2400) | Dell Preferred Account ($1500) | Discover IT ($1500) Target ($500) | Overstock Store Card ($1200)

Re: What score do I need to get a secured card

Letter said I am in credit steps, but it seems like a lot of different opinions on the boards here about what to expect from the credit steps program.
