From the CompareCards.com Editorial Team

The First Progress Platinum Elite MasterCard® Secured Credit Cardis designed to help those with little to no credit begin to build their credit score. It acts similar to a prepaid card except that you place a deposit on the card that acts as your credit line and there’s automatic reporting to the major credit bureaus so your good account management habits will be noticed.

Some perks that come with this card include an average annual fee of $29 and the ability to have a credit line as high as $5,000. There are fees associated with this card like late payment and returned payment fees. Payments made on the account will not increase your available credit immediately, often taking up to ten business days.

Out of all the First Progress secured cards offered, this one has the highest APR rate, but has the lowest annual fee. 

The Bottom Line

The First Progress Platinum Elite MasterCard® Secured Credit Card is an average secured card that can be used anywhere MasterCard is accepted and reports to the credit bureaus. It doesn’t offer much for rewards, or additional perks and features.

The Good

Card holders will enjoy a 25 day grace period before having to pay interest on purchases.

The Not So Good

If you spend frequently, it may take up to ten business days for a payment to post to your account, which is limiting in your available credit. This card also charges for foreign currency transaction fees.
