CASH BACK UNSECURED VISACredit One Bank
Tough to start with unsecured... maybe a gas card would work...
However, I would suggest to start with Capital One secured. Then the next ones should be unsecured...
RE: Here's a story
Ditto on capitalone secured. If you don't want to spend $99 towards a strong and healthy credit file, you seriously need to think about what you are doing.
Here's what i told my gf to do and she did:
Month 00 - Capitalone $99 - received card,
Month 01 - received macys $200 limit
month 05 - received car loan (new), instant
approved on CITIBANK
received Citibank, requested CREDIT RAISE on MACY's , received $300 increase on macy's
Short-sweet and concise.
$99 investment, nearly 6 months later
she has $500 cap 1, $500 macy's, $1000 citibank, and a new car.
It wasn't that easy when i first started out, I TELL YOU!!
Btw, the following information above assumes a 100% clean credit file, and there were about 10 inquiries at least during last 12 months.
Personally i have found Capital One "Choosy" over it's approval for people with no credit.
If Cap 1 doesn't approve you, open an account with First Consumers you do get a bonus on top of your deposit with them, and they are great about increases.
I applied for NextCard and Aria w/ no credit and was instantly approved online.
Of course, there are other factors to consider, such as income stream and stability (length of time at residence/job) that may play a big role in approval with no credit history.
BTW, my starting lines were $500 for Aria and $700 for NextCard.
Income was 30,500, with 6 yrs at job and 11 yrs. at residence.
wow! Thats good news!
MAcy's A good Start UNsecured
I started out at macy's with an unsecured card . I had no credit at the time . They will give you a 100 credit limit . but in terms of reporting they are great . all three CRA's and thier min payment is 5 so u can't get into anytrouble with that . Providian will follow after 3-4 months and so will DMB . just keep the inquires low . I had a ton when i got my macy's 3 years ago . Give it a shot . If that dosn't work probably secured cards are your best bet.
good luck ..
RE: MAcy's A good Start UNsecu
My wife -- who had no credit history -- started with a Macy's card that she was able to get because she had a Visa check card. In about three months, she received an unsecured LLBean/MBNA Visa, a Victoria's Secret card and a Nordstrom card. None with huge credit limits, but she's building.
Kids,credit cards & foreig
My son will be going to France with a school group & they suggested a credit card for him to use while overseas. Do you have any suggestions where to start with this?
