Maybe this has been around awhile and I'm just seeing it now. ( I have no need for this now but might have been handy when I first filed Chap 7 with a paid off house)

Meet Aven—the home equity backed credit card. It’s a HELOC that works like a regular credit card by tapping into your home equity to get you lower interest rates. You can also earn unlimited 1.5% cash back* on everyday purchases. Get started today.

might be fun if it actually reports "Up To $250,000 Limit"

I wonder about these cards. With a run-of-the-mill credit card you just screw up your credit if you're unable to pay for all those fancy restaurant meals. With this card, for all those fancy restaurant meals you're unable to pay for, not only do you screw up your credit you could end up losing your house.  😕

Years ago (turn of the 21st century), Third Federal Bank (Cleveland, OH) offered a Visa that accessed the HELOC. Not sure if they still do.

This is the problem - this product is secured by the home! Very easy to get into trouble and lose the home; I mean, it seems to me that people who could get an unsecured card would not need a HELOC credit card, and those who need a HELOC credit card are probably at the highest risk of losing the house because there was a reason they couldn't get an unsecured card to begin with. Danger, Will Robinson!
