You could try Kay's or Jared.  Maybe Hooters MC?

Instead of looking for the next company that is offering psuedo-fake credit or tradelines. Try working on establishing yourself with a real company or bank that offers legitimate tradelines. Anyone who is actively searching for the next Crown Jewelers is asking for trouble plain and simple.Smiley Surprised

We could probably be more help if we had a few more facts.

 

  • What are your FICO scores?
  • Do you have other tradelines?
  • Hve you pulled your CR's from annualcreditreport.com?  (free)
  • Do you have baddies on your reports (lates, CO's, judgments)?
  • Are you employed?

 

No personally identifiable information please.  As Joe Friday used to say; "just the facts ma'am".

You could try Capital One and Orchard. Problem with some of these Orchard starter cards is the $6 monthly membership fee.

Well they're rebuilder cards. Good enough for a couple or three years.

Since I don't know what's on your reports, I'll just give you my experience. 

I started with an Orchard secured card in 2006.  Because my baddies were past SOL, I waited for them to fall off instead of paying since they wouldn't delete if I did pay.  Their loss.  I was preapproved for a Juniper in 2007, $500 CL.  I purchased a car last October.  I refinanced 6 months later.  All but one baddie removed, I applied at my local CU, NFCU, and asked Juniper for an increase.  My local CU approved me 3k, NFCU approved me 10k, 1k increase in Juniper limit.  Just take it slow, get 1 re-builder card, never pay it late and handle one negative item on your report at a time.
