Secured Cards

Advertiser Disclosure
The following are the top secured cards for consumers with a bad credit history. Unlike unsecured cards, these cards require that you deposit money into a bank account to secure a credit line. You are then sent a bill each month for charges that you've made to the card. Once you get upgraded to an unsecured card or otherwise cancel the account, the amount you deposited up front gets refunded back to you, less any money you might owe on the unpaid balance. In addition to offering quick and easy applications, these cards also report monthly to the major credit bureaus, ensuring that your account history gets reported to your credit profile.

  • You don't need perfect credit for a First PREMIER® Bank Secured Credit Card
  • If approved, make your first six monthly minimum payments on time and we may send you an offer to apply for an unsecured credit card. Some restrictions apply.‡
  • ‡ If you apply for the second account, which is unsecured, you will be approved if you can demonstrate the ability to pay your bills, meet our minimum income requirements, do not reside in New York or Wisconsin and are not covered under the Military Lending Act. 
  • Credit scores are used to represent the creditworthiness of a person and may be one indicator to the credit type you are eligible for. However, credit score alone does not guarantee or imply approval for any First PREMIER® Bank product.
