Build your way to better credit!

If you are just starting to build your credit profile or you are hoping to improve or repair your credit score, this card is a great solution. We want to give you the chance to build or repair your credit using your Academy Bank Credit Builder Savings account, which provides the credit line for this credit-building Visa®.

By only charging a set amount each month and then showing consistent, on-time payment patterns you are doing what you can to improve your credit history. At that point, you're on your way to qualifying for our regular Visa® Credit Card.

Credit score is determined by credit reporting agencies based on multiple factors, but satisfactory performance on a credit card product can improve your credit score. Default on a credit card, including missed or late payments can damage your credit score.
