Newport News as first credit card

I was preapproved for and received a Newport News card as my only credit card although the site clearly states that you must have a major credit card to be approved.  Here's to rebuilding my credit!

Try Orchard Bank who will not only report to all Bureaus monthly but will also increase your line of credit after you make 3 consecutive monthly payments...

Re: Newport News as first credit card

The interest rate is obviously outrageous at 22.9% with a $250 CL.  It's a start.

Re: Newport News as first credit card

I know. That's why you should try ORchard Bank. They are the "bad credit" card company.

Re: Newport News as first credit card

Yeah, I know, but I don't have bad credit, just no revolving accounts.  Orchard only prequalifies me for a card with a $79 AF, which is a bit exorbitant for me.  I think I can get something better.

Re: Newport News as first credit card

Is there a Macy's in your area? I read a post earlier by a member who got a Macy's card immediately after arriving in the US, before he even had a SSN.

Lots of members here adore their Macy's cards!
