Pros and cons

  • Qualify with limited / bad credit

  • No annual fee

  • No foreign transaction fee

  • No rewards

If you have bad credit or no credit, the DCU Visa® Platinum Secured Credit Card is one of the top secured credit cards available. The main reason is that it's generous on fees. The $0, and there is no balance transfer fee or cash advance fee.

Another perk is the DCU Visa® Platinum Secured Credit Card’s interest rate: The ongoing APR is 13.75%, Variable — relatively low. The card reports your credit activity to all three credit bureaus, helping you establish positive credit history more quickly. Plus, it doesn't put a cap on how high your credit limit can be — as long as you have enough cash to secure it with a collateral deposit.

A couple of things to consider: The DCU Visa® Platinum Secured Credit Card doesn't offer rewards, and it requires cardholders to become Digital Federal Credit Union members. If you want more information, check out our full review.
