This Visa offer is issued by BBVA Compass. This is a secured card that does not issue a traditional line of credit. APR's may vary among applicants, however the lowest standard APR is 16.24%* (Variable)*.

Important Rates:
The lowest available APR is variable, meaning that the rate can change as U.S. prime rates fluctuate. You can find out how to compute your APR in the programs terms and conditions. For example, you may be instructed to add 12.99% to the U.S. prime rate.

There is an annual fee of $40** for this card.

Credit Record Needed:
Based on the FICO score recommendation, the issuer may expect applicants with troublesome credit histories. A FICO credit score of 441 is recommended for a higher chance of approval, but this is not required. There are a number of other factors that this issuer may also consider when making decisions for approval.

Uses for this type of card may include budgeting funds, adding deposits for later use, building a credit rating (if issuer reports to the credit bureaus), and possibly more.
