I do not like cards that have an annual fee. Though $29 dollars per year is not that high, this alone would deter me from signing up for this card. The interest rate is also extremely high at 22.9%. I do like that it comes with free regular credit reports from the 3 major credit bureaus. I also like that it has the ability to be used like any other mastercard. The late fee is reasonable at $18 and the cash advance rate is on par with nearly every other card I’ve had. It is extremely nice that there is no foreign transaction fee as I do travel abroad on occasion.

You'll be required to submit a security deposit in order to open this card, but there is no mandated ongoing spending requirement. In other words, you can choose to lock your card away in a drawer, never use it to make purchases, and still build credit. Regularly making purchases and on-time monthly payments will expedite the process, but actually using your card isn't worth the risk if you don't trust yourself to spend within your means.

According to Capital One's FAQ, the card will be sent to you immediately after you pay the deposit. So you shouldn't have to wait more than a week or two. You can always contact Capital One's customer service if your card is taking longer to arrive than you hoped.

I don't like not being able to pay my monthly bill with my dbbit card. It is incovenient for me, as I don't use checks. the debit card is the way I keep track of my bill payments.

The monthly payment on a secured card is the same as what you would expect on any other credit card. Usually the max of 3% of your outstanding balance or $15.
