What are some CC's to help me rebuild my credit?

I have a current EQ score of 526 with 1 postive TL and 5 negative TL. I use 20% every month and I PIF.

Everybody says I need at least 2 accounts to increase score. I don't want app because of my low score.

 

I only have 13 inquiries in the last 2 years.

Credit One Visa (www.creditone.com) is a guaranteed approval, but the fees are so ridiculous!

TU FICO - 752 (8/12/11)
EX PLUS - 721 (8/9/11)
EQ FICO - 648 (2010)

A second account will only help a little.   You may want to wait until you have fewer inquiries and more age on your negative accounts.  

 

I would suggest a secured card.  I would start with Orchard or Capital One.

9 out of the 13 inquiries were actually unauthorized. I spoke with the original puller and all 9 will be removed from EQ within 45 days.

I think my score should go up.
