The Build Card Mastercard Review
The FS Build Card is designed for consumers that are looking to rebuild their credit or for individuals that desire to start building credit. The card targets individuals with credit scores under 600 and for those with discrepancies in their credit history. It’s an alternative for using pay day loans when you simply need a small loan or credit during a tight financial period. This credit card is a viable option for responsible users who need a fresh start to increasing their credit score.
The Build Credit Card is an unsecured card that does not require a deposit. It’s different from a secured credit card which requires a deposit before you can begin using it. Secured credit cards are always a great option for consumers when in a credit building situation so you will need to weigh the odds before deciding which one to apply for.
