Q&A: credit cards?

Question by margarito209: credit cards?
is there any credit cards that you qualify for once u turn 18 and dont have any acounts in ur credit history? because im trying to build my credit score… please let me know any store that gives u credit card. thanks!!!

Best answer:

Answer by Jeremy P
I would recommend avoiding ‘store’ credit cards altogether. They usually have extremely high interest rates (23.99%-29.99%) and other hidden fees. You might want to consider a credit card for people with poor / no credit here:

http://www.asapcreditcard.com/unsecured-offers.html

While these offers tend to have higher interest rates and additional fees when compare to ‘standard’ credit cards– you’ll pay much less than a store credit card. Plus, they’ll give you the chance to prove your creditworthiness and improve your credit score.

Eventually… with regular, on-time payments– you’ll be able to apply for better offers with lower APR’s and less fees.

Hope this helps. GOOD LUCK!
