How our Secured Visa works

The credit card is secured by deposits in your FAIRWINDS account. Example, we would place a hold on $500 in your FAIRWINDS account and issue you a credit card with a $500 limit. You will not be able to access these funds until you either payoff and close your Secured Visa credit card or be approved for one of our other credit cards.

Improving your credit with a FAIRWINDS Visa Card

Just having our Secured Visa credit card isn’t enough. Using it and paying it down or off with on time payments will build your credit history. You keep this up and your credit score will grow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent card I had credit cards in the past and had gotten into deep with them owing so much, i wanted a credit card and I had a secured card before past and worked out nicely so I gave it another try so far no regrets

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Highly recommend! I have had my Secured Visa for about a month now. Before I applied for it I was a little unsure about how it all works, but the Fairwinds member assisting me (shoutout to Jennifer at the Orange City, Fl Branch) was super helpful and informative. By the time I left that day, I felt confident and ready! I received my card in the mail within a week and immediately started using it. Highly recommend! Thank you Fairwinds!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My Review for Secured Visa I was approved for a Fairwinds Secured Visa card even though my credit rating was not the best. As a matter of fact, I had s credit score of zero - due to the fact I had paid everything off and hadn't used credit in a long time. In about a month after receiving the card, my credit score shot up to 693. I was ecstatic! Now- I'm trying hard to do what it takes to keep my score moving upward. Thank you Fairwinds for helping me get "back on track!"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rewarding Experience Feeling I've been wanting to do this long time ago, because I've been a member for quite some time now, but, some kind of 'hardship' always came up. Now, I'm very excited, pleased and proud to call myself a Fairwinds Member.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Feel Valued-Wonderful Service As a new Member, I was given all the information I required. However, when I go to use a new service, I always feel I better ask. The representatives are always pleasant and helpful and make me feel valued.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome product Ashley at Mount Dora FL recommended the secured card to help rebuild my credit. I applied at the Waterford lakes office beca use I had moved. The representative was very friendly and answered all my questions. The application process was very easy. The payment process is as easy as transferring from my checking. This is a great product and I have recommended it to several friends.
