Aspire offers two credit cards: the Aspire Credit Card and the Aspire Cash Back Reward Card.
Both the Aspire Credit Card and the Aspire Cash Back Rewards Card are unsecured credit cards you can apply for simply and securely. Your credit score will be available in your online account 60 days after your account is opened. They offer online access 24/7 from any device and provide free transaction alerts and zero fraud liability.
Both cards also let you earn a 3% cash-back reward on eligible gas, grocery, and utility bill payments. You'll also earn a 1% cash-back reward on all other eligible purchases of goods and services and payments minus returns and other credits.
These cards work for those with bad credit and have a 29.99% or 36% variable APR. Both cards charge an annual fee of $49 - $175 for the first year. After that, the annual fee drops to $0 - $49 with a monthly fee of $5 - $12.50.
Depending on an applicant's "overall creditworthiness," the Aspire card comes with up to a $1,000 credit limit. They'll look at someone's credit history, income, and debts.
Before applying for one of these two credit cards, see if you pre-qualify. This lets you find out if you will be successful in your application without your credit score taking a hit due to the hard inquiry necessary to apply for a credit card.
