Is there really a credit card that guarantees approval?

Is there really a credit card that guarantees approval?

Yes.  If you want a 100 percent guarantee that you will be approved, apply for a secured credit card.  A secured credit card will help you build credit history with low risk to you.  Secured credit cards work just like regular credit cards and are also reported to the three major credit bureaus.   The only difference between a secured card and a regular credit card is that a secured card requires a security deposit and your credit limit matches the amount of the deposit you put down – the minimum is $200.  Your credit limit can be as little or as much as you choose – you can increase your limit by simply adding more to the amount that you initially deposited.  The great thing about a secured credit card is that it can act as a personal savings account while building your credit history at the same time.

I don't know about this.  I copied this off of myFico's website, but as BofA showed me.  That is FAR FROM TRUE!

I've seen many people get declined for secured cards on these forums.

2009-10 - C/Os
2011 - Debts paid, no open credit
2012 - Rebuilding started, secured cards opened, SL rehabbed - EQ myFICO 636
2014 - 10k Discover, 3.5k Freedom, AmEx Green, SL, Auto Loan - EQ myFICO 695

Not all secured cards are 100% approval.  Actually most are not.  However there are some that are 100%

Secured cards are great, I've had 3 in the past few years.   But only a few are guaranteed approval, I have been turned down by US Bank for a secured card.

 

Only a few secured cards guarantee approval.    The "Open Sky" for example.   I got it when it first came out.
