Q: After filing bankruptcy six months ago, I would like to now start rebuilding my credit. What credit cards do you suggest? I really do not want a "secured" card, but rather an "unsecured" card with a small limit of $250-$500.
Your best bet is to rethink a secured credit card for a year or two because even if you could find an unsecured card, the interest rate would probably be sky high. A secured credit card (along with other forms of secured credit) is the fastest way to re-establish credit.
- I'm a 22-year-old female who makes about $1,000 a month. I have a credit union credit card with credit line of $500. I recently applied for a Lowe's credit card and was denied. I'm always on time with my credit card payments. What would be the reason?
- I am an 18-year-old with no credit history. I have read Curtis Arnold's book and am successfully paying my community college tuition on my own. Which card is best suited for me when I only plan on using my future card for gas purchases?
- How long does it take to establish credit when you have no credit?
- Are Discover Card credit cards any good?
- Which bank offers the best debit card?
- Is a credit score of 725 considered good?
- Why do you rate American Express credit requirements as "good credit" to secure a card? I thought to qualify for an American Express card you have to have excellent credit.
- Supposing you have a perfect credit score of 800 or better; which credit card offers the highest credit limits?
