Credit Card Alternatives for Poor Credit Scores

Lax credit rules, over spending, a weak economy and a startling number of unemployed workers have many consumers licking their financial wounds. Starting over financially is no walk in the park but is a necessity to get back on your feet and headed in the right direction.

Don't Over Apply
First of all, keep in mind that if you're not having any luck with applying for a credit card with the traditional banks - don't continue to apply. Each time a credit check occurs you potentially impact your credit score further.

Credit Card Alternatives
This may be easier said than done. Many lenders will reject applications for credit from those with poor credit. But that doesn't mean you're completely out of options. Having access to a MasterCard or Visa is necessary in many situations and doing without is nearly impossible for some. Consider these alternatives:

Establish a Payment History
Once you're able to gain access to even a small line of credit treat it with the upmost importance. Demonstrate that you can make monthly payments on time each month and spend only within your credit limit. This practice done consistently will eventually earn you a larger line of credit at cheaper interest rates.
