I have recently taken a position with a company where a lot of travel is involved. They quickly reimburse for the travel expenses (air/hotel/perdiem) the week after it is incurred but I don't have the cash flow at this time nor a cc w/ a sufficient limit to cover what I may need to.
I would like to apply for a card where I can hope for a limit around 5k, but am afraid that I might not get approved at all. Plus, I want to keep the inquiries down to a bear minimum (only have 1 from the last 12 months right now.)
I have a CapOne card $750 limit right now that I've had no late payments on and just today paid the balance in full.. I have baddies that are set to drop off in the next 6 months and nothing neg in the last 2 years. My fako scores: TU 652, EX 604, EQ 621.
Any suggestions on a card I might try for?
Thanks so much for any input from a long time lurker

Hi Stella....what you will want to do is get your real FICO's here. There's a promotion going on right now where you can get both TU & EQ for $11 & change each.
This will give you a good indicator. Come back & tell us your scores & what state you're in. There's a good credit pull database out there to check against.
I wouldn't just app blindly til you know the score....no pun intended.
Edit: Promo code ----> NOVEMBER26

If you can qualify for either, NFCU and PSECU are the best options for less than perfect credit. However, both have membership limitations.
