Re: What to do with these satisfied letters? And which CC?

Capital one... if she doesnt get approved (most likely will)

 

DO NOT APPLY FOR ANY OTHER CREDIT

 

Instead open up at least 1 secured credit car with maybe local credit union or Wells Fargo... 

 

WF will turn into an unsecured credit card and return the security deposit back after 1 year of on time payments...

 

THats what I would do if i could go back in time..

 

Going out trying to apply for every credit card that accepts bad or rebuilding credit cost me abotu 15 inquiries before i realized secured was the way to go...

 

apply for CAP1 if they dont approve go with secured card
