For what it is, I think this credit card is a little on the bad side of your options. Granted, you have to take into account the fact that credit cards can be extremely hard to come by if you have bad credit. So of course the company is going to try to get as much money from you as possible up front, and every chance they have thereafter. Still, even with bad credit, there are better options. For example, the credit limit increase fee is outrageous! I've never seen a card that does this, and I would recommend against getting this card on that basis alone. A better option more

The First PREMIER Bank Platinum Credit Card is one of the worst most out ridiculous credit cards on the market for those with bad credit not only is the APR one of the highest on the market any place for any card but the company is just terrible I Signed up for this card years ago, I didn't end up activating it and called to cancel as soon as it arrived at my house. I end up paying 1300$ in fee's for a credit card who's limit would have only been 200$ to start with. I would say if you have to choose no credit card of this one, just more

It seems that there a lot of fees and payments associated with this First Premier Bank Platinum credit card and not enough leeway. It doesn’t have a simple or clear cut structure of fees either. With each year or month that passes, the fees associated with the card vary. The one-time fee seems tacked on in order to milk more money out of the customer. In addition, there are monthly and annual fees applied to the card. I don’t see what is enticing about this card. Perhaps since this is for customers with bad credit, they want to ensure that they’ll get their payments, or perhaps they know that they more

The First PREMIER® Bank Platinum Credit Card is really one of those credit cards that help you get back on the right track. Although there is a very high first year fee of $175 and then $45 a year after the that the high credit limit of $700 to start blows other cards out of the water. No other place can you even find a card with a limit close to that for those of us with bad credit. Another great thing about the First PREMIER® Bank Platinum Credit Card is that as you use the card and pay your bills on time over time you will earn an even higher credit limit.

I'm torn on the First PREMIER Platinum Credit Card, it is aimed to "help" people with bad credit by giving them an opportunity to have a card, but it seems to me more like a way to exploit them. Sure, I am all for giving people with "bad credit" a chance to dig themselves out, but this card seems a bit much. Huge annual fees, monthly fees after the first year, and an absolutely obscene 36% interest rate on purchases? This is just an insult and a kick in the ribs to someone who is already "down on their luck" because ofactions taken by the same groups of people who more

First PREMIER Bank Platinum Credit Card's name is a bit misleading and it is definitely not a platinum card. Its more for someone like me with poor or no credit and will help you boost it. Its features though even for that type of card is pretty poor. $175 annual fee is definitely a lot higher than any other secured card and really holds you back. If you actually put stuff on the card, the APR is so high that you're paying a lot more for anything you purchase. If you need to build your credit there is way better secured cards for you. Only use this as your last resort.

First Premiere Bank might be calling this a platinum credit card, but it’s actually a card designed for people with very poor credit. There are so many catches that go along with this card it would be difficult for the average user to keep track of them all. The annual fees are pretty high for an unsecured credit card. Between the one time fee when signing up, annual fee and monthly fee, you’ll have spent $290 in fees alone just to have this card in your wallet for the first two years. You will also be charged for each credit limit increase in the form of 25% of the amount more

I love the fact that the First PREMIER Bank Platinum Credit Card is an unsecured card for bad credit. The con of this card is the first annual fee, one time fee, and APR. However if you are looking to get back on your feet and re-establish credit this is the way to go. A perk of this card is that once you are eligible for a credit limit increase, First Premier will do a 25% increase. There is also another good thing about this card, the monthly fees are $0.00 for the first year after that the monthly fees are only $6.25. Many other unsecured cards for bad credit more
