Quick Summary:
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 16.49%* (Variable)*.

Important Rates:
There is not an introductory APR for this card, so the lowest or standard rate may apply immediately or after the grace period for eligible purchases. There is an annual fee of $40** for this card.

This is not a rewards card. It is normal for cards for fair and poor credit histories to not offer rewards.

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. While your FICO score is usually a very important factor, you may want to consider other areas that may affect a decision for approval. For example, your debt to income ratio, recent credit inquiries, 30+ day delinquencies, or current credit accounts nearing the maximum amount may affect a credit decision.

FICO scores/credit scores are used to represent the creditworthiness of a person and may be one indicator to the credit type you are eligible for. However, a credit score alone does not guarantee or imply approval for any BBVA Compass product.

Other Basics:
The grace period listed for the Optimizer Credit Card is at least 25 days*. So interest charges will not be applied for new purchases during this time. Be aware that some issuers will begin charging interest on cash advances and balance transfers on the transaction date.

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.This card contains the brand of Visa, where acceptance is global. Most businesses that accept credit cards will accept Visa as a form of payment.
