I would like to get one, but haven't been approved yet. What kind can I apply for that I will surely get?

Hi Betty,

Typically, if you're trying to rebuild credit, or establish it for the first time, the best place to start is with a secured credit card. A secured card is essentially a credit card with a security deposit. You give the bank a small amount of collateral in the form of cash and they give you a credit card, usually with a relatively low line of credit. Paying you monthly bill on this card will help you build credit, and after 6 months to a year, once you've established a good repayment history and if you don't owe anything on the card, they will return your collateral to you and you can apply for a standard, unsecured card card. We recommend you take a look at the Capital One Secured MasterCard or the Discover it® Secured.

I find that it is better to have one and not need it then to not have one and really need it.

To get approved for a card with a low interest rate or a good rewards program you'll need a good credit score, usually over 650. If you pay your bills on time and don't carry much debt, it should take more than a year or two to get there!

I have a Quicksilver now and use it for literally everything to exploit the 1.5% cash back. I don't even withdraw cash unless its for local businesses in my neighborhood that only take cash or give me a discount for using it. I tried a Citi Double Cash but got rejected. 2% cash back on everything is the best deal now, unless you travel a lot then you can get an Amex.

how much would a Chase Card give me to pay off some of my credit cards

By: Andrea Braden | May 3, 2015

It depends on your credit score and it depends on whether you have paid your other bills on time and are in good standing and it depends on how much they want to give you, everyone is different. They might give one person 10,000 credit and they might give another person 5,000 credit. It all depends on how you have handled your finances on other bills you have or had.

0% Credit Cards & Interest Free Credit Cards

Low interest rate (or 0%) credit cards can save you hundreds of dollars on balance transfers and on routine purchases carried over as credit card balances. Or you may simply want to be rewarded with a preferential interest rate as acknowledgement for good credit history and responsible debt management. Whatever your goals or motivation, zero percent or low interest credit cards can help you maintain the lowest rates available to individuals with excellent to good credit. You can find out more about credit score here.

Keep in mind that there are two main categories of low rate credit cards, namely those that offer a Variable APR and those that give you a Fixed APR.  Just like with variable versus fixed rate mortgages, a fixed rate APR will remain relatively stable through the course of the loan. If your card company decides to raise it – which is somewhat rare – they will first notify you of that change according to Federal law requirements. With a variable rate, your APR is tied to a prevailing rate such as the Prime Interest Rate. If the prime rate increases then your APR will most likely follow in a similar fashion.

Generally speaking, credit card companies and banks will extend either 6 or 21 month offers – within the 0% to 3.99% annual interest rate range. That can generate a considerable discount when normal APRs are averaging around 15% or higher. Once the introductory promotional period expires, the APR on a low interest credit card or interest free credit card may revert to the regular interest rate. Of course the ideal balance is a credit card that offers a great near term rate followed by an attractive, competitively priced low interest rate for the long term.

The interest rate charged on your credit card is widely regarded as the single most important component of your card. That’s because it determines the major cost for you to borrow or roll over balances and pay them off over time instead of all at once or within the same month that you make purchases. That’s why getting a zero percent or low interest credit card can be huge financial boon, no matter what your credit card usage patterns or money management strategies may be.
