Great card woth extremely low monthly payment requirement. If you know how to properly use a credit card.. its beneficial. Has helped boost my credit & allowed me to gain cresit history over the past year. No complaints.

by Antoinette Penie

It's just sad how very inexperience everyone are. So they charged me even before I received the card in the mail. Didn't even use the card until a month later. That was a red flag from the jump. Now, when it came time for me to close the card they tell me that I have to pay the fees because the card was still in use when the fees were apply so therefore no refund. They are thieves and very greedy and dishonest. The only reason I got the card in the first place was because at the time I was very desperate and didn't think things through. For a secured credit card their fees are the worst and it is so ridiculous that they're charging that much for a secured credit card . Credit Union is the way to go.

Horrible card to get!!!

Do not get this card. They say it’s to build credit but it ends up hurting your credit due to the fact that they take so long to process the payment! Even when they do process the payment the funds are not available to you for at least another five business days. I have never had such a bad experience with a credit card company!

Bad customer service, they took away online pay to make it even harder to make on time payments, high fees. Ive made one purchase and paid it off but somehow have accrued $63 in fees even though I never even use the card and they aren't willing to work with me at all and are very rude and unsympathetic. "Banking Black" makes me never want to bank black again because of this bank.'

scam - or at least not helpful.

1. Got the 39.00 bill and a bunch of junk mail. 30 days later still no card. Had to make a payment without receiving the card yet. made the payment on the 19th for a due date of the 25th. They have yet to credit it. You have to pay by bill pay or by check - they do no auto debit. This is not designed to build your credit its an opportunistic parasite that takes advantage of people trying to rebuild credit. Stay away!
