Bad credit credit card
Bad credit credit cards are credit cards designed for consumers with a poor credit history. They can help repair an individuals credit score which will in turn make it easier for the consumer to be accepted for a cheaper more competitive credit card.
If you do take out a bad credit credit card it is vital that you don’t miss any of the payments as this will reinforce the problem that stops you from obtaining a better deal on a credit card in the first place. It is also important that you pay off the bill in full each month or you will pay more in interest.
The interest rates for a bad credit credit card tend to be higher as the lender considers the borrower to be more of a risk as a result of their credit history. If you pay off the balance in full each and every month then this won’t be a problem.
