openskycc.com Questions for anyone that has this card.

Didn't apply for this card yet but have some questions about it.

 

1. How long did it take to find out you were approved?  Did it tell you instantly or did you have to wait?

 

2. Is it possible to view your balance and pay this card online? I didn't see a login/account section at www.openskycc.com anywhere.

It is 200-3000.
As far as I know they accept everone it is a no credit check card. That being said its still noy worth it. High AF and no grace period meaning interest starts accruing day 1. Much better secured options are around

I had the card a few years ago, when the terms were much better.    There is no grace period now, so interest accrues from posting. so you would not want to let much time between charges and payment.   They had an online account to pay your bill which worked fine.  

 

I think approval is still based on identity verification.  They had some email sent, phone calls protocol to go through.   Should be able to get it done in a few hours during business hours.

 

It is an OK card to start rebuilding and you have no open accounts and you have bad credit.    I'd get it if you are declined for a better secured card with bank/CU.

I've had this card since it was first issued by Public Savings Bank.  Initially it was ideal because there was no annual fee, and there was a grace period... but since Capital Bank took over the terms have become less favorable.   There are better options out there.  I would only choose this card as a last resort.  I would definitely shop around and look for a secured card that will graduate to unsecured.

 

Best of luck to you.
