Is a poor credit score making your credit card shopping difficult? While a little more limited, you do have several options. If you have poor credit you may have to start out with a credit card with higher interest rates and lower credit limits. If managed responsibly, a poor credit credit card can help you rebuild your credit to a point where you can qualify for better rates and terms in the future.
There are a few traditional credit cards that are available for those with poor credit. But if those are out of reach, a secured card is a very good option. These work by paying a certain amount down to establish a borrowing limit prior to obtaining the card. Many secured credit cards report to the credit bureaus, so they are good for rebuilding credit.
While they don't help you rebuild your credit, prepaid cards are a popular option for those who don't have a checking account or want a simpler approach.

Once you click apply for this card, you will be directed to the issuer’s website where you may review the terms and conditions of the card before applying. While Credit.com always strives to present the most accurate information, we show a summary to help you choose a product, not the full legal terms - and before applying you should understand the full terms of products as stated by the issuer itself.
** FICO scores and credit scores are used to represent the creditworthiness of a person and may be one indicator to the credit type you are eligible for. However, credit score alone does not guarantee or imply approval for any credit card offer.
