There was another thread about a similar card and I posted my thoughts. I will re-summarize them here too.
Credit cards for people with bad credit tend to have a high number of negative complaints. A lot of times those complaints are justified but other times the customer is more at fault for the issue.
There's no denying that cardholders of these types of cards are more likely to make late payments and what not. I am not claiming that is anyone on this forum but it is true if we are talking about the average cardholder for a sub-prime credit card. What that means is their customers encounters are more likely to encounter the issues that go along with using a card irresponsibly and therefore it's not unusual to see a lot of customers and ex-customers venting their frustrations on forums.
I do not know anything about the Pearl Mastercard or any other Pearl credit card for that matter, but I would keep this in mind when reading any bad credit card reviews. Try and interpret them objectively - are the complaints valid points are is the person griping about a problem caused by themselves?
Disclosure: I am a moderator/paid staff of this site, which does have advertising relationships with some credit cards that are discussed and linked to. Regardless, anything I say is my honest opinion.
