    Not sure where else to post this and searched for "credit cards" in the search box, all I found was VCC stuff.

    Can anyone tell me the best ways to get credit totalling at least to $700 (preferrably more) with me currently having AWEFUL credit? I'd like to know how these shop-aholics get to buy so much crap when they have no $$ and never pay their bills!

    I need $$, for biz and bills. Was looking into CB for a while and when I finally started understanding it all I come to find that even that require $$ up front (that I don't currently have) for PPC keywords and such. Tine is ticking away and it's coming down to the wire for me.

    I can't even get store credit or little cc's that have like $200 max limit anymore! any ideas? anybody on here hiring? :p

    I think capital one is really easy to get into, but don't expect $700 right off the bat.

    Whatever you say dumbass, you don't know shit about me or my situation. But feel free to assume you do. :)

    Some of us interested in business understand the importance of using credit as leverage which I'd like to do, but I first must use it as a different kind of leverage. To help pay my food and rent after my income dropped significantly.

    But I'm sure you're not even reading this here, too busy keeping your head up your ass and all.

    Yah I've tried them before. My ex-gf ********ed up my credit bad with them and still have a delinquent acct with them, so they're not giving me squat.

    secure credit cards are the way to go if you are trying to rebuild your credit.... mine jumped nearly 200 points in a 60 day time period.

    Yah I was going to go with a secured credit later (when I have $$ to secure it with) but I don't think trying to improve my credit is feasible at this point while I am currently delinquent (in/going in to collections) on a citibank store credit line of over 3k.
