Re: Suggest Credit Cards for Equifax Score of 690

Is that your true FICO score of 690 or your EQ score?

What other TL's do you have? House? Car?

What credit cards do you currently have if any?

Are they secured or unsecured?

If you have any what are your limits?

Ok great... 1st thing I would do, (if you can) is get your UTL under 9% before you apply. This will allow you a better chance at approval and a higher starting credit limit.

 

So what are you wanting out of your card? Point rewards? Cash Rewards? Travel benefits?

AMEX is always good for points

If you use paypal at all they are offering 2x back

Chase Freedom is a good rewards card.
