The Self Visa Credit Card is unique among secured cards because there’s no application, no hard credit inquiry, no extra deposit needed, and no chance of rejection — since the only way to get one is to become eligible through your Self Credit Builder Account.

Designed for consumers with limited or no credit history, this card reports to the three major credit bureaus and if you’re approved, can help build credit along with your Self Credit Builder loan.

To get your own Self credit card:

  1. Create a Self Credit Builder Account
  2. Make at least your last three monthly payments on time
  3. Save $100 or more in your account to be used as your credit line
  4. Pay all outstanding fees
  5. Choose your credit limit based on your savings and get your card

Once you’re eligible for a Self Secured card, you can accept it if you’d like, with no application needed.

This card has a $25 annual fee.
