Secured Credit Cards

These cards are a step above a prepaid credit card. They require you to deposit funds but you will not be drawing against those funds. They simply remain with the card issuer to secure your card. In other words if you deposit $500 you might have a $500 limit. Because you are not drawing against that $500 it is a true credit card. And as long as you make your payments on time it will help improve your credit rating. Fees are higher than regular cards but these cards can help you rebuild after a major setback.

Disclaimer:* See the online application for more information about the terms and conditions for these credit card offers. Every sound attempt has been made to preserve precise information. However all credit card information is presented without guarantee. After clicking on the offer you desire you will be taken to the credit card issuer's web site where you can review the terms and conditions for your selected offer.
