Easiest Fresh Start Card for Service Members

In the Armed Forces? Need an easy way to get a fresh start on your credit?

We all know that our service members are rarely paid what they’re worth, and it’s really easy to get behind on your bills when you’re deployed, when you transfer to another base, or in the event that you have an unexpected expense.  And that can affect your credit in a big way!  Not only is it hard to catch up, but when you do, it’s really hard to repair bad credit.

Why is it so hard to repair your credit?  Because no one will give you credit!

If that’s the case, then your best bet is to get a secured credit card and establish a pattern of paying your bills on time, every time.  That way, your payments are reported to the major credit bureaus, and over time, your credit will recover.

If you’re a retired or active duty service member, or a qualified family member, the easiest way to do that is to get a USAA Secured Card® American Express® Card.  The USAA Secured Card® American Express® Card is not just a prepaid card – it is an actual credit card, with great benefits, and an excellent track record for helping members of the Armed Forces to rebuild their credit rating!

USAA Secured Card® American Express® Card

  • Best for members rebuilding or establishing credit.
  • Determine your own credit limit ($250 to $5,000) with an interest-earning CD.
  • No foreign transaction fees when you travel outside the United States.
