What's a secured credit card?
You give a collateral to the bank to secure your credit card. You'll deposit an amount of money that the bank can use to pay your credit card debt in case you're not able to pay your debt.
Dedeposit pala, eh uutang nga eh. Bakit pa ako kukuha ng secured credit card?
You apply for a secured credit card because you need a credit card, but you're not yet qualified to apply for a secured credit card. Maybe you don't have ITR or income documents. Maybe all your previous credit card applications were rejected.
With a secured credit card, you can build a good credit record, so you can apply for a regular credit card after a few years.
How much should you deposit to qualify for a secured credit card?
Savings account -- Minimum is 15,000 pesos
Time Deposit -- Minimum is 100,000 pesos
Can you withdraw your money or part of your money after you get your credit card?
No. The bank will hold your money for security. Your money is your collateral. It will be used to pay your credit card debt in case you're not able to pay off your debt.
Of course you can get back your money later on when you decide to surrender your credit card.
Does your savings account or time deposit earn interest while you're using your credit card?
Does the secured credit card enjoy promotions and discounts and earn points just like regular credit cards?
