Credit Cards Offers For Fair Credit

Credit cards within this category are typically unsecured, though many carry an annual fee, smaller credit limits and higher interest rates than cards designed for good or excellent credit. Credit scores that generally qualify for one of these cards range from a low of 550 up to 619.** Not sure what your score is? Sign up for an account with CreditSoup to get your free credit score.

Benefits of Credit Cards for Fair Credit Scores

If you have a fair credit score, it’s likely that you are looking to increase it. Applying for a credit card that you can pay on time each month can move you in a positive direction toward a credit history that lenders will view favorably.

When evaluating credit cards, look for:

  • Program fees, and how much they cost
  • Whether the card is unsecured or requires a security deposit
  • Annual fees, if any
  • Introductory interest rates
  • Limits on balance transfers
  • Regular interest rate
  • Benefits or rewards you can collect over time

The higher your score, the better the terms you can get in an offer. Younger adults who have a limited credit history may appreciate credit card options designed for students. Those with impaired credit could use one of these cards to help rebuild their score over time with responsible use.

Choosing Credit Cards for Fair Credit

For most people, credit cards are tools that help them achieve their financial goals. You want to make a choice that works best for your needs. Create a list of your priorities, and it will make it easier to decide. If you don’t care as much about rewards but really need to keep costs down, you should look for cards with a low or no annual fee. If you know that you will need to carry a balance on the card for a time, you might opt for one with a lower interest rate, if available. CreditSoup makes comparison easy, with necessary details about a variety of options right here.

Improving your credit is a worthy ambition for anyone, but you don’t have to wait until then to apply for a credit card. Browse CreditSoup’s list of credit cards for fair credit scores and see where your financial future could take you.

*See online credit card application for details on the terms and conditions.

**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, credit score alone does not guarantee or imply approval for any credit card product.
