Sometimes we get dealt a bad hand and end up with a bad credit rating. Or maybe we’re trying to build up our credit rating for the first time.
Either way, we can find ourselves in a trap.
Credit card issuers want good credit scores in order to approve us for a new credit card. But we need a credit card to improve our credit.
I’ve got good news.
You have options. And these aren’t scammy deals that will take advantage of you.
