How to Apply for the First County Bank Secured Visa Credit Card

The First County Bank Secured Visa Credit Card is advertised as a card in which you can re-establish your credit history through linking a savings account as a back up to fund your account. If you’ve selected this post, it is then because your score is so low that you’ve been left with this option of 20.99% APR. Of course, as with most credit cards, if you pay the balance off in full before the 21 day grace period, this won’t play a factor. However, this can be easier said than done so before committing to a credit card with such a high interest rate, consider speaking to a financial adviser about what the best steps are to get your credit score back on track. If you’re still interested in this particular option, we’ll walk you through the application process below.
