Have a Discover Card since July 2012. Any other suggestion?


chase freedom!

I'm a personal banker and do a lot of auto loans serving the Houston area.
I suggest first time car buyers to read the sticky guide in the auto loan section.
I try to check these forums often, but if I missed your post, please feel free to message me with a link to it.

Re: Suggest Credit Cards for Equifax Score of 690

Chase Freedom is an excellent Point Rewards card. However, you will have a better chance of getting a Cap1 Cash Rewards card but it is not point based. You get 1.5% cash back.

If denied with Chase, recon.

I agree,   get your utilization down below 9% and then look at Chase Freedom or Chase Amazon, I think you'd be approved :smileyhappy:

Avoid C1 unless you want a $500 limit for the next five years.
App for Chase Freedom! It's a great entry-level-prime card :-)
