No, First Progress does not have an unsecured credit card. This issuer only offers secured credit cards. First Progress markets its credit cards for people looking to establish or rebuild credit.
Secured credit cards, including First Progress cards, require a refundable security deposit to open the account. Deposits for First Progress secured credit cards… read full answer start at $200, but approved applicants can choose to deposit up to $2,000. The amount of the deposit determines your initial credit limit, and also serves as collateral for the issuer, should you default on the account. You'll get the deposit back when you close the account with no outstanding balance.
Alternatives to First Progress Unsecured Credit Cards:
Keep in mind that unsecured credit cards for rebuilding credit are saddled with high interest rates and a host of fees including annual fees, processing fees, and one-time "set up fees". That will take a sizeable chunk out of what will likely be a pretty low credit limit.
That makes secured credit cards the better deal for repairing less-than-good credit. You will have to front your own money to open the account, but it's money you'll get back if you use the card responsibly. If you establish a history of timely payments, you may receive a credit limit increase or be eligible to transition to an unsecured credit card with better terms.
