I am wanting to get another card to aid in my credit rebuilding process.
AAoA is 1 year 10 months
I have a cap secured card since February 13
also a couple student loans always paid on time
I have two baddies from June of 2011 a medical collection(300) and one is a utility bill(100), both are paid
credit karma score is 655(fako)
equifax 686(fico from here)
3 inq two in feb and one last month.
I am wondering what cards I could get approved for? I would really like to get a unsecured card with out an AF i would that be possible with my stats?
thanks for your time

Do you know your TU score? Or if your TU file is the same as EQ? GE backed cards, Cap1 Unsecured(Maybe) and some Barclays cards spring to mind. GE likely being to easiest.

Your secured card is still pretty new, so I would advise waiting a few more months. Your AAoA will be stronger and the inqueries will have aged. If you feel you must app right now, you can try for the Discover IT.
