Remarks 200 one time fee, 50 annual fee and I believe 29.9% APR. I got this card before I really researched the better "sbuprime" cards.

Remarks Glad to hear of any approval regardless of the card. If you plan on leaving them, don't wait years because your scores will depend on it. Before you try another card with high fees, try these first:

1. Cap 1

2. Orchard

3. Travelocity

4. Hooter's

Keep us posted with your overal usage of this card in the network or in the comments of this card. Thanks for sharing your info.

Remarks Apply for cards that don't stick you with ridiculous up-front fees at approval and apply for better sub-prime cards that you can keep in the long run due to history.

Remarks Congrats on getting this card BUT, if you can get a cap 1, orchard or HSBC you will be better off. The fees that come with this card are outrageous. Take care and good luck

Remarks This is high way robbery. I think even First Premiere may be better than this. But definitely, Orchard, Cap1, HSBC etc. What type of Fico scores do u have?

Remarks I don't like First Premiere at all! I have Tribute, Salute, Orchard and Continental. No secured cards. However I cannot get Cap 1 which I hear is crap anyway so maybe I am better off?
