What Major Banks Offer Secured Credit Cards?

Mar 29, 2008
When you're in the hunt for a new credit card, some people find that they have had great luck with other banks and card carriers. If you're currently in the hunt for a secured credit card because of bad credit and/or you're looking to re-establish credit, you're probably unfamiliar with the banks that issue these types of cards.

A lot of banks generally shy away from the bad credit region because of the past of just because people don't learn their lesson when they are looking to rebuild their credit leading this people once again to not pay their bills off in time hurting the credit card companies and the industry. So, the questions we look into today are what banks are offering secured credit cards and who would I recommend?

There are three banks that should come to mind when you start to think of bad credit and these banks love to specialize in this area because they love to help America and people with credit problems. Surprisingly, most people that have had bad credit in the past have learned their lesson and want to turn their lives around. Unfortunately, some people don't learn this lesson and this is where the previous paragraph comes into place and this is one of the big reasons big banks shy away.

Three of the bigger banks that offer secured credit cards are Bank of America, New Millennium, and Orchard Bank. While some of these banks sound familiar, some may sound completely foreign to you. The reason why some banks are unfamiliar when it comes to credit cards is because they tend to specialize in the bad credit field. You can rest assure that these banks are legit and are willing to help when you're in need.

Does a bank matter?

This question gets brought up a lot and it's really up to the consumer. Take anything you buy in life and take a note at where you purchase that particular item from. Why do you purchase this item from that particular store? The same will go with a bank. If you're unfamiliar with all of the banks offering a card, I would recommend that you either do a little research online or ask around to family and relatives and see what they have to say about the bank. Sometimes you'll get great feedback and other times you'll still be lost.

If you can't find the right information about the particular bank you're applying for, it's always best to just compare the cards itself and see which one satisfies you the most. If you end up not liking the credit card, simply cancel it and apply for a new one but chances are you'll like the bank because most banks when it comes to credit cards run the same. Unless you run into a rare occasion where you don't like the customer service or how the card works, your experience with a secured card should work for you so that you can re-establish your credit history.
