Credit Cards for Bad Credit

Simply getting a credit card will not help you build your credit history. Making on-time minimum payments with all of your creditors and keeping account balances low relative to the credit limit are key to receiving positive marks on your credit history. Prepaid debit cards, unlike credit cards, do not provide a line of credit and do not influence your credit history. Choose from secured and unsecured credit cards, and prepaid card offers below - some of them are fee-based.
