Failing that, or in addition to that, try the "Shopping cart trick" at places like Victoria's Secret, and the other online retailers known to do this. Google shopping cart trick for details. Basically it's going to online retailers, putting things in your cart and going to check out and entering your address. Make sure your address is the same as that listed with the credit bureaus. They will soft your TU and may offer you a card for only a soft pull.


You gotta start somewhere.
Sapphire Reserve: travel & dining (almost everything until I meet my initial spend)
Blue Cash Preferred: groceries & gas
Freedom: 5% cats
Double Cash: everything else
