Re: Credit card for international students

I think my WF banker was not proactive enough . :smileyindifferent:

 

But would also like to hear from other about their experiences for different cards. Very helpful thread. Just what I was looking for. :smileyhappy:

 

I am considering to apply for Barclays which has that resident fine print mentioned and would be great if anybody can shed some light on their app process. Or BoFA or Chase for that matter.

US Bank Cash+ $5300 || Discover IT $5950 || Barclays Arrival $4K || AMEX BCE $30K || Chase Freedom $7K || First Tech CU $12K || CSP $12K || BofA Cash Rewards $12K
Starting Score: All CRAs : NA
Current Score: TU 751(Barclays) , EQ FICO 743 , EX FICO 741
Goal Score: All CRAs : 760+

I applied for BofA *days* after receiving my SSN and was promptly denied. I had no banking relationship with them at the time. I applied a year or so later and had a checking and savings account with them by that point. I was approved.

Wells Fargo Cash Back - $2400 || Bank of America Cash Rewards - $5000 || Discover IT - $5000 || American Express BCE - $15000

FICO TU - 769
