Get A Credit Card When You Have Poor Or No Credit History

When I decided to get my own credit card, my credit history was so minuscule I wasn’t sure if my application would be accepted. I needed to know a way to get a credit card with 0 credit, which is only a small step above poor credit.

    This is great advice. When I started building my credit, I began with a secured card. After just a few months, and being responsible with spending/payments, I was upgraded to a regular card. That was the perfect way to start and begin establishing excellent credit.

      That is awesome, Jay! We all have to begin somewhere, no matter our starting point. It sounds like you figured that out and set sail on your journey to excellent credit. Thank you for sharing your personal experience with us!

      I’m glad you liked this Guide, Raya! I found the credit union locator to a really useful tool, too. It’s amazing how fast it pulls up a list of credit unions to check out!
