Credit Cards and Prepaid Debit Cards for People with Bad Credit

Simply getting a credit card will not help you build, re-build or re-establish your credit history. Making on-time minimum payments with all of your creditors and keeping account balances low relative to the credit limit are key to rebuilding your credit history. Prepaid debit cards, unlike credit cards, do not provide a line of credit and do not influence your credit history. Choose from secured and unsecured credit cards, and prepaid card offers below - some of them are fee-based.

USAA Secured Platinum Card
  • It's a real credit card - not a prepaid or debit card, that helps you build or improve your credit score.
  • When you apply - you'll also be opening a USAA 2-year Certificate of Deposit (CD), an interest-earning deposit account that has a two-year term and a $250-minimum initial deposit.
  • Your CD is a security deposit - the money you put in upfront, from $250 to $5,000, is the card's credit limit.
  • Earn interest on your CD - your deposit is guaranteed to grow. Plus the money is yours to keep as long as you don't default on your payments.
  • Start building your credit - opening a CD lets you get a credit card even if you don't have a credit history or have bad credit.
  • Before starting your application, USAA will ask you a few questions to establish your online access and eligibility with USAA.
  • If you are not eligible, USAA credit cards and other products may still be available.
