With poor credit, your options for credit cards are somewhat limited. However, if used responsibly, these cards may be the best way to start establishing or rebuilding your credit.
With a pre-paid or debit card, you're in control of your available balance because you control how much money is added to the account. Once you load or deposit your account with funds, you can start using it immediately to make purchases both online and in-store.
These credit cards may have some annual fees involved and are designed for those without perfect credit. If you keep your accounts current and balances low relative to the credit limit, you may be able to build, rebuild, or re-establish your credit history.
A secured credit card is an excellent solution to establishing your credit history. Welcomed where all major credit cards are accepted, secured cards are the way to go if you have bad credit or no credit history.
