Pro:I had a credit score of 512 CK. I got approved for $500 and it has gone up to $1500 after one year. My credit score is now 630. Make sure you keep ure balance under 30% usage. i.e. my limit is $1500 so i keep my balance under $450. That is what's building my credit.

Con:Always pay on time b/c the fee is $40 and intrest kicks in after your first year.

I was leary of applying for this card after being declined for other cards. Rebuillding after a financially devastating divorce. Was approved for 300.00 and in less than 6 months increased limit to 2300.00  I keep my balance at about 10% of the limit, or pay it off within a couple months. Was especially glad I had the card last month when I had to fly out of state and rent a car for a family card was a blessing!

Actually approved for a $300 CL with a CK score of 584. Not a whole lot, but more than enough to get credit repair going.

Approved with CS of 635 with 1,000 limit no annual fee and 0% APR until Feb 2014.  Looking forward to see what they up my CL after my first 5 months paid on time.

After I got my secured card, I was 'preapproved' for this card.  I got it and my initial limit was $300.  Then it went up to $700 after like 5 months of full time paying it all off. Then 5 months later it went up to $2250 after paying it in full.  Now it's at $4250.  Not bad.  Just kept on making payements and they kept on increasing my balance.  No rewards though...and the few rewards they offer sometimes are too specific to really mean anything.  I like the fraud protection though.
