I cut up my credit cards a long time ago and need to get a new one to rebuild my credit. My score is 616 but Fico doesn't tell me if it's fair or poor so I can apply for the right card. I applied for a Capital One card through another site before and got declined. They state that 616 is not good but i don't know if that's fair or poor. I don't want to waste time applying for a card I won't get. Thanks.
Which cap one card did you apply for. The limited credit one or the one that needs improvement? Creditors are getting singier by the day. You may want to stop by www.orchard.com or www.householdbank.com They do have annual fees from 39-79.00 but I am against those that have a 150.00 fee plus a maint fee plus an annual fee.

Unfortunately 616 falls into the "poor" category. There are CCC who will work with you, but they most often are fee based cards.
