Worst Credit Cards Known To Exist!?

So, what do you guys think are the worst credit card out there now? We all know that subprime and rebuiler cards are a no brainer when trying to choose the worst card.. But what about the worst PRIME credit card? Just because a credit card is prime doesnt mean its a good one! So what do you guys think is the worst prime credit card too??

Goal: 700 and an Amex Card!

Probably the card Citi graduated my secured card to. Essentially no rewards and a $29 AF. It did have a 25k CL left over from when it was secured so I guess it was "prime."  OTOH, I did PC it to a world elite AA exec card.  Stiff AF but good bennies if you fly AA frequently.

 

 


I have reestablished credit over the last couple years
so my moniker is, well, rather out of date.

WM Discover $1800, WF Plat 12k, Chase Freedom Siggy18k, Amex Plat (60k H/B), Citi AA EWMC 25k

Ooops didn't read full post beyond the topic.  Should edit that to reflect your message Smiley Happy

 

Depends on your needs, but my vote would be for an AF carrying, low-interest rate card as I PIF anyway when I'm fully employed.  As a disclaimer, I think prime is a laughable term to apply to anything outside of describing FICO tiers, however much I've been guilty of in the past of doing that admittedly.

 

 

Starting Score: EQ 04 561, TU 98 567, EX 98 599 (12/30/11)
Current Score: EQ 04 693, EQ 8 714, TU 8 710, EX 8 724 (05/27/16)
Goal Score: 700 on EQ 04 (01/01/17)

Re: Worst Credit Cards Known To Exist!?

Another one for the Visa Black card. I completely disagree about Green, Gold, and Thank You Premier though... The annual fees are the only bad thing about them and in most cases justifiable. IMO
