An unsecured credit card for bad credit is a card designed for those with impaired credit.While we work to reposition a number of existingand new products, we have decided to stop accepting new applications for the Peoples Trust Secured Card product effective July 31st, 2017.Even though this is a secured credit card, some people still may carry a balance from time to time, and if you do, a low interest option is critical to keeping down your borrowing costs.The idea here is for you to use good credit habits and pay down your credit card bill every month, not just the minimum payment, on time – use automatic payments if you can’t trust yourself.Pay down your balance every month and the interest rate is irrelevant.
