How to Apply for the Best Western Secured MasterCard

The Best Western Secured MasterCard was created to offer those who need it an opportunity to rebuild their credit score and, in as early as 11 months, gain access to an unsecured credit card. They require a security deposit upon application which will  dictate the credit limit of your MasterCard. To see the deposit agreement, click here. Because this favors those individuals with a lower credit score, consequently the APR is set at 20.99%. However, you will still have the opportunity to take advantage of their rewards program which offers 13 points per dollar spent during Best Western stays. If you feel like this may be a practical option for you, scroll down and we’ll walk through the application process together.
