It is a store credit card that is safe and can help people who have had bad credit repair their score.

To find out how this works and what you might need to do to improve your credit score with this card, read on.
A look at the way Amazon Credit Builder works.
People who have bad credit can use this secured store card to get back on their feet.
1. Sign up for an Amazon Credit Builder account and wait to see if you get approved, then start building your credit.
2.To start the process of making the deposit, go to Amazon.com/creditbuilder. You can send a check or money order to Synchrony Bank by e-mail or by mail.
3.It’s also important to spend money from the Amazon Credit Builder store credit card to build your credit. It is very important to spend wisely. It’s not good for you to spend all of your money if you want to get a better credit score. Spend a fair amount each month.
4.As a last step, pay back at least the minimum amount due each month. This will help rebuild your credit score with your card. After you make the payment, contact the bank that issued the check, Synchrony Bank, to make sure they got it.
5.Synchrony Bank will report your on-time payments to the major credit bureaus every month. This will start to improve your reputation as a good borrower. If you keep paying your debts on time, your credit score should improve over time, taking into account all other factors that affect credit scores and history.
Features and benefits: Amazon Credit Builder has both.
To help you better understand this service from Amazon, this section explains what it can do and why it’s good.
The chance to start rebuilding your credit.
It’s almost impossible to get your credit back on track if you have ever had bad credit. So why do you need a credit card? You need to show that you can pay back money, which helps build your credit score.
However, because you already have a bad credit score, you won’t be able to get a new credit card. So why do they do this? Before a credit card company can give you one, they’ll do a background check on you at a lot of different credit bureaus. Unfortunately, because of your bad credit history, you won’t be able to get any new credit lines. It’s then impossible for you to try to improve your credit history.
Amazon Credit Builder is a secured credit card that lets you get out of this cyclic loop. Even though you have to pay a security deposit because you don’t have good credit, Amazon gives you a real credit card from the bank that issued it. One way to repair your bad credit history is to spend money and pay it back on time.
On Prime Memberships that qualify, you get 5% back in cash.
The Amazon secured credit card is the same as the Amazon Store Card and the Amazon Prime Store Card (unsecured cards). In this case, you must put down a refundable security deposit with the secured credit card (credit builder card).
If you already have a regular Amazon store credit card, however, you can use the same card. One of the benefits is that you get 5% back every day if you have a Prime membership. You can also get some promotional financing even if you don’t have Prime.
Upgrade and get your security deposit back
It’s another good thing about the Amazon Credit Builder store credit card. If you close your credit builder account, you will get back your security deposit in full. However, in order to get your deposit back, you must pay off any debt on your credit card.
You can also change your secured store credit card (credit builder account) to an unsecured credit card (normal Amazon store credit card). A credit card company called Synchrony Bank will give you an unsecured Amazon Store Card if you get an upgrade. They will also refund your security deposit.
