moniqueluv's review: I just call the number for kays and I spoke to josh I was afraid applying because I'm starting to build credit and don't have any revolving acct my FICO with equifaxs is 636 and I advice him that I have a collection acct from 8 months ago and to my surprised he said I was approved for 4,500 so I'm glad also I decided to apply with bestbuy and I was declined due to limited credit history so I called and speak to a superviser and said that she was going to over turned so I could be approved then she said to faxs my statement of my car for proof since it showed being disputed I adviced her it was a mistake from equifaxs then I faxs it and I call back and another superviser was denying myapplication so I escalated to ceo because the previous superviser said she was going to reconsider it so tommorrow I should be getting a response hopefully I get approved I will escalated till it gets approved what are my chances? But for kays I'm happy and I did it through phone so anyone interested call and just speak to a credi analyst before applying and they will let you know before if you tell them what your credi looks like.

they pulled equifaxs

Yes! Kays reports to all three bureaus! I would also suggest applying for Jared and JB Robinson Jewelers like I did, they all 3 are owned and operated by Sterling Jewelers, and normally what ever your limit was for Kay they will match for the other 2, as far as a secured card goes, with your score I would try Capital One, Hooters, Credit One Bank, any GEMB card, for example, Wal-Mart, Belk, Lowes, ect... They are not secured and report to all three as well!

You monthly payment is according to your balance. When I charged $500, I had to pay $50 per month. Don't take advantage of that too long because the APR is pretty high.
