Credit Cards
« on: December 01, 2017, 06:59:08 PM »
Does anyone know which credit cards are the easiest to get approved for in the UK? I find that its hard for me to use my American cards for certain online purchases in the UK. I have had a bank account in the UK for about 9 months so have some history.

Does your bank offer a credit card? That's where I started. You may have more luck there because they "know" you.

Thank you! I'm going to look into that

I started with a credit card from my bank last year. Most online purchases can be done using your bank’s debit card.
