Credit One Bank®

Rebuilding credit one step at a time

Get back on the right track and build your credit history.

Rebuilding your credit history takes patience and time. It can be frustrating to set out with the intention of getting your credit score back on track, but then get rejected from new card applications. Credit One Bank® offers several card options that are geared toward people who are looking to raise their score, as well as rewards cards for those who qualify.

Considering a new credit card is a big decision. It should be made only after you’ve looked over all of your options. Credit One Bank® does have annual fees for some of their cards which are on the higher end. Though those fees are broken up over each month the second year, consider if you are willing to pay the fee.

Landmines

When considering any credit card, it’s important to shop around. The variable APR and annual fees for Credit One Bank® may be a bit steep for some customers’ liking. There is also some apprehension around the timeliness of customer service by other consumers. To avoid these pitfalls it is important to fully understand the monthly payments you will be making (even if you aren’t carrying a balance) and the variable percentage rates.

Pro-tip:

If you’re considering a credit card and want to work with a customer service agent directly, or on a regular basis, this may not be the card for you. If you’re independent and confident you can pay the annual fee and make your monthly payments, you should be just fine.
