The smart way to rebuild and strengthen your credit

Your card for building back and building up

We understand that sometimes you might need to rebuild and strengthen your bruised or damaged credit. That takes time and effort. And the Advantis Secured credit card is a great way to help you hone the strong financial habits that can put you on the path to healthy credit.

Advantis Platinum credit card

  • No annual fee
  • Credit limits start at $250
  • Secured deposit determines limit
  • Low rate at 20.24% APR1

Take control of your credit

Consistent, responsible use of a credit card can be a great way to improve your credit score. And that’s critical, since your score can impact so many aspects of your life, from lenders and landlords to utilities and potential employers. 

  • Upon approval, your card limit will be determined by the secured cash deposit you provide (credit limits range from $250 - $30,000).
  • As you build up and improve your financial situation by making payments on time for 12 months, you may reapply to see if you qualify for a higher credit limit and lower rate with an Advantis Platinum or Signature Cashback Rewards card.
