I don't usually leave comments, but I hope this helps someone in need. 10 months ago, I had no idea how credit worked and how important it is to establish it. For some reason, I was consistently denied by various credit card companies, including department stores. I had no hope.

Then I came across this secured card, I remember checking my score and it was estimated to be 550 (yeah, that's crap).

Now its been 10 months, $200 limit, no missed payments; my score is 669 with equifax and 680 with transunion. To top it off, I went to my bank (BofA) and was approved for credit card with a $2500 limit.

I have this secured card to thank for getting me started. I see a lot of people complaining about not being able to get the $200 back. I say, forget the $200 bucks, Capital One can keep it. The credit score increase has been invaluable as it literally jump started me to be able to do what I need in the future.

I had a BK in 2014 that was discharged 2 months before I applied for this card.  Even though a couple of cards from Capital One were discharded in the BK, I was still instantly approved for this card with a $200.00 limit and only a $50.00 deposit.  I paid the balance in full every month and had 0% utilization.  I only used the card once a month to pay for Netflix ($7.99).  After 6 months, my credit line was automatically increased to $500.00 and I didn't even have to request it!  My score has drastically improved since getting this card and I'm happy that being a respondible card holder has paid off.  I'm very thankful that Capital One gave me another chance when no one else would so that I can finally use credit the right way.

This card is helping me get to where I need to be credit wise. The mobile app makes paying my bill super easy and hassle-free.  I have had this card for 3 months and I am looking forward to the increase in my score,
