What is a secured credit card?
A secured credit card is a type of credit card that requires a security deposit as collateral. It is typically used by individuals with limited or poor credit history to establish or rebuild their credit.
How is a secured credit card different from a regular credit card?
The main difference between a secured credit card and a regular credit card is the security deposit requirement. With a regular credit card, you don't need to provide collateral, and your credit limit is determined by your creditworthiness. Secured cards are specifically designed for individuals with limited or poor credit, while regular cards are available to those with established credit histories.
How is the Build Card different from other secured credit cards?
Unlike other secured credit cards, with the Build Card you can simply add money to your Current Account, and your Spending balance will be updated. Theres no need to load money onto your Build Card separately. On top of that, you'll still get access to all the other great benefits from having a Current Account, from early access to your paycheck, to fee-free overdraft.
What is the required security deposit for the Build Card?
There is no required minimum security deposit for the Build Card. Whatever money is added to your Current Account counts towards your Spending balance, whether it's $1 or $10,000.
What happens if I miss a payment on my secured credit card?
Consistently paying your Build Card balance on time helps build your credit history, but missing a payment or paying late can hurt it. With AutoPay enabled, your outstanding balance will be automatically covered by your Reserved Funds - so you never have to worry and can build credit safely.
How do I get access to my direct deposit early?
Direct deposits are moved between banks using a system called ACH. When your employer processes payroll, an ACH file gets sent to your bank indicating when funds should be made available - typically after a two day hold. At Current, we believe you deserve your hard-earned money ASAP, so we release your paycheck to you as soon as we receive it. This is how we get you your paycheck early.
