Capital One® Secured Mastercard®


If your credit score needs improvement, the Capital One Secured Mastercard can help you get back on your feet and restore your credit rating.

This is a secured credit card, so it requires an initial security deposit.

The amount of money you put down helps determine your credit line. The more money you put down, the larger your credit line will be.

You’ll be given a required minimum security deposit, from $49 to $200. This will provide you with an initial credit line of $200. You can deposit more if you’d like to raise your credit line, up to $1,000 for a $1,000 credit line. You can learn more about this security deposit here.

This card has no annual fee and no foreign transaction fees.

Cap one Secured Card is the Real Deal!

I have several different secured cards in my wallet at the moment, and the Cap One secured Master Card is by far the most user friendly card I have experienced.

Their smart phone application is unbelievable. You can log on, check balance, see next payment, and pay your card at the touch of a button, from anywhere in the world. It's just amazing.

And, they actually answer the phone when you call....and you never have to call because the smart phone ap is so good it sends you an alert after each purchase and when you get close to your limit.

I have First Progress card too. They are the exact opposite. No on line payment mechanism. No smart phone application. It's a real challenge to reach this lender and to manage your card, and they have no desire to provide easy access to their system on line. A real nightmare trying to get in touch with First Progress. Worst customer experience I have ever had.

Cap One Rocks. Start with these guys. You won't be disappointed.
