Is Credit Builder a secured credit card?
Yes, Credit Builder is a secured credit card. The money you move to the Credit Builder secured account is how much you can spend with the card. This amount is often referred to by other secured credit cards as the security deposit. Like other secured credit cards, Credit Builder also reports to the major credit bureaus, to help you build credit history over time.
However, for most secured credit cards, security deposits are unavailable to you, the consumer, until you close the account. With Credit Builder, you can use your deposit to pay for monthly charges. Plus, Credit Builder charges no annual fees and no interest, and no minimum security deposit required!
What is the Credit Builder secured account?
It is an account that holds the money you’ve moved to Credit Builder. This money determines the amount you can spend with your Credit Builder card (a.k.a credit limit). You get to set your own limit by moving any amount to and from your Credit Builder secured account whenever you want.
When you make a purchase, a hold is placed on that money you just spent in your secured account. You can use this money later, to pay your monthly balance. Your Available to Spend will also go down. This way, you know how much more you can spend with your Credit Builder card.
What can I use my Credit Builder card for?
You can use the Credit Builder card anywhere Visa® credit cards are accepted.
