Low Credit vs. Business Expenses

I have a score of 602 and I'm about to start a new job that will require monthly business expenses and i'm not sure what to do. I need to get a credit card and i've never had one before. I could do a secured card but i don't have the extra cash to put into that right now, and i even a capital one card would give me maybe a $500 limit which is a starting point i guess.


Any pointers on what kind of card i could/should apply for?

Re: Low Credit vs. Business Expenses

You need a high limit card and fast but your scores are too low. Any way to borrow against something to give you a secured card deposit?
