Credit Cards to Build Credit
Even if you are good at managing money and always pay your bills on time you may have limited or no credit history. That can be a problem, though, because credit card companies and banks want to see a track record in order to predict whether or not you’ll be a good customer and won’t abuse your card or procrastinate when it is time to make a minimum payment.
Having a limited credit history can be a frustrating situation because you have limited options available to you in order to demonstrate your credit worthiness. You are stuck in a classic “Catch-22” situation. The good news is that there are credit card companies that will issue credit cards to individuals with no credit history. These no credit credit cards are reviewed and summarized in this section so that you can browse through them and find one you like.
Once you get approved you can start building a credit history by making sure that the card you have chosen reports your payment history to the “big three” credit reporting agencies on a regular basis. By using the card responsibly you’ll soon establish a verifiable track record and your credit rating will go up along with your credit score. Then you’ll no longer have to rely solely upon “no credit history” credit cards and can “upgrade” to a credit card product with lower interest rates and which offer reward programs.
