Low-Limit Unsecured Credit Cards

One of the most popular credit cards that people trying to re-establish credit are attracted to are the low-limit unsecured credit cards.  These cards do not required the consumer to put up any funds upfront.  Instead they offer a very low credit limit and charge the set-up and processing fees to this credit line.  Giving the opportunity to pay them over time with interest.  These fees can be up to and in excess of $250 reducing the initial amount of credit extended to less than $50, less than a tank of gas.

Other than timely payments consumers have no control over how quickly this credit limit is increased.  Credit line increase are usually limited to one or two in a 12 month period.  Interest rates on these types of cards are usually higher than other cards.

Consumers looking to increase their credit scores have to be very consciousness of their spending habits with these types of cards.  Due to the low limits it is very easy to go over the limit and incur additional fees and charges.

FTC Required Disclosure

The Federal Trade Commission requires that I disclose any relationship I may have between a product manufacturer or service provider when I write about a product or service.

My intention for this blog is to provide consumers with the knowledge to improve their current personal credit situation. It is the readers responsibility to do additional research and to make responsible decisions based on their own personal financial situations.

My promise to my readers is as follows:

  • I am never paid to do a review of a product or service. I do not accept money to review credit cards, credit repair companies etc... When reviewing a product or service, I invest my own time and money to review and test credit products and credit services listed on this site.
  • No advertiser will ever influence the content, topics or posts made in this blog. Just because there is an advertisement for a particular product or service on this site, it does not necessarily mean it has been endorsed by the author of this blog.
  • If I create a link to a product or service on this site, sometimes I may get paid a commission if you purchase the advertised product or service. These links are included after posts are written, and posts are never composed for the purpose of including advertising.

I feel the rules and practices listed above are just good business in today’s digital world. It is important for you the reader to understand the relationship between the person reviewing a product and the manufacturer or service provider.

If you don’t see a disclosure policy on a blog, that reviewer may be violating the law or at the very least the Code of Ethics.
