Most popular ask the expert answers

Q: I want to apply for my first credit card. What should I look for?
A: First of all check your credit report and score from annualreport.com. This is the only source for getting a free credit report, and you can get one from each of the three credit bureaus once per year. Check your report for any errors to insure maximum potential for getting credit.
Q: Can I get approved for an American Express credit or charge card if I had a bankruptcy three years ago?

This is a difficult question to answer as other issues are involved, such as what you have been doing since the bankruptcy. As an example, let's say since your bankruptcy you have purchased a home and a car and made regular payments on these for the last three years, never once being late.
