Stop applying for unsecured credit cards. Go to your local bank and ask for a secured credit card, basically you charge the card with the security deposit and that becomes your credit, you use the card and make monthly payments just like an unsecured credit card. After a year of clean credit card use, you get the deposit back and the secured card becomes unsecured.

It works great! Try capitalone secured credit card.

I had no credit, used this card abd after a year, my credit was 350, i swear. And bought a house.

Second option is trying witg a local credit union.

Good luck!

Ha! my social life has yet to begin...and I will be applying for a credit card sometime this month. I believe all you need is a job?Correct me if I am wrong. It justs lets the bank know you have the means to pay them back.

Most of the time they do check for a job, but also if you have a checking and savings account.

well got all those in check...lol

They also ask... just kidding lol.

Let me know how it goes! If you apply online and you get denied, give them a call. They usually always approve you after asking a few simple questions :)
