To all my country men who have had to turn away credit-card-pushers at home, but cant seem to catch a break here in the US, Fear Not.....Read On....
Fleet Credit Card Services is the holy grail.
After 3 months of searching, inquiring, haggling and tearing my hair out....I found nirvana.
Even if you dont have ANY credit history (which i dont have either), Fleet will give you a Secured Credit card. Just give them a cheque of how much credit limit you want, and they will keep that cheque as a surity and issue you a credit card with the same credit line.
Best of all, this is absolutely free!
I tried Bank OF America - the card looks good, but they just wont give it to us newbies.
Citibank (my banker) - They dont even have a secured credit card, and most of us dont have any credit history to get a regular one.
Chase - good secured credit card. $35 annual fee (pricey). No online bill payment option.
My Fleet got approved on the 12th of may, and Im itching to start spending my easy money.
