Secured Credit Cards

These credit cards are secured by an initial deposit, and the credit limit is the same or less than the deposit. Secured credit cards don’t carry rewards and might have an annual fee. The goal is then to use the card each month to make your payments on time. Eventually, your credit score will improve, and you will be able to apply for a regular credit card.
