Can you get a credit card with no income?

Postby Shellie77 » Sat Apr 27, 2013 9:59 am

Is it ever possible to get a credit card with no income, if you're not married (no household income) but you have checking/savings account?

Probably not.. How are you supposed to pay it back?

if your a student and have things like extra financial aid or something I can see using that as your "income". My question is how are you supplying your checking/savings? Is it a case of your parents sending you money every week/month? It is possible for you to use that, but you might run into a situation where the bank wants proof of your income and that may be an issue without something like a W2.

Prepaid credit card

Go and get a prepaid credit card. That should not be an issue as you actually put money in it.
