Credit Builder CD
If you have little or no credit history, this Certificate of Deposit (CD) actually helps you improve your score, which means you are more likely to be approved for a credit card, car loan, mortgage, or small business loan, get a job, or see lower interest rates on future loans. How?
First, you receive a loan from Southern Bancorp for either $500 or $1000 that is put into your CD. Make monthly payments until the loan is paid-off. Then, you receive the full value of the CD, plus interest, and this important bonus: an improved credit rating by credit bureaus due to your monthly payments.
