Credit Card Suggestion

My EQ score is 658 . I have Capi 1 ( $2000) , JC Penny ( $700) GE Care ( $600)

 

 I haven’t applied for any CC over 3 years. Finally getting back to apply few.  I did look into “ who give me credit” website. But could some of you suggest few Credit Card which might be easy to get approval. . I don’t want any store card or secured card  but regular CC.

That's a decent score.. You don't have to limit yourself too much, anything in particular you wanted?

Re: Credit Card Suggestion

We're going to need some more info to better answer that question. Are you going to PIF or carry or transfer a balance? Are you looking for certain rewards like miles or cashback? How many baddies on your report? How much do you charge per month? What kind of things do you spend the most money on? Are you a college student?

With a 658 the best prime cards are probably slightly out of reach but you should have some options still. Let us know.

Re: Credit Card Suggestion

658 a decent score ? wow .. glad to hear that . I had such a  bad credit score  in past 5 years , I am just afraid to apply for any credit card. Any card as long as it is not secure or CL is under $1000 is fine with me.

Re: Credit Card Suggestion

I have 3 60 days which are 3 years old and 3 collections which are  4 years old. i don’t care about the reword, I will mainly use  CC for gas or emergency. I used to charge between $250-$400 a month on my Cap 1 which had only $500 CL. I don’t see myself charging any more than that.

Re: Credit Card Suggestion

I would suggest a Barclay's card.  They are more lenient with the average scores and older baddies on your reports.  If they decline you or give you a limit you think is to low they also are very good with recons.  The card also grows with you....
