  • Do you have a checking account? See if the bank will give one to you. Be prepared for a REALLY high interest rate.

  • Don't. Buying on credit when you can't afford it is a fast way to horrid credit and bankruptcy.

  • Well, if you can't live off min. wage, going further in debt is not the answer. You'd just be adding another bill. Find a 2nd job, sell something or get a better paying job. I know it sucks, but you can get yourself into trouble w/ credit cards.

  • Don't get a credit card to supplement income. That's the dumbest thing ever. Your first credit card will have an incredibly high interest rate and while you don't necessarily HAVE to pay the balance right away if you can't keep up with the payments and plan to use it to supplement cash you'll find yourself in a hole quicker than you can possibly imagine!

  • Getting a credit card to supplement your income will sink your ship faster than anything. If you must have one, try for something like a Wal-Mart or Target card that can only be spent at that one place. If you make the payments on time, you could eventually start building better credit. But don't charge more than you can pay because the only thing worse than no credit at all is bad credit.

  • Live within your means. Look for ways to save.

  • It would be better to get another job that pays more or a 2nd job.

  • Capital one has a building credit one. But you'll have to put a down payment down. But I agree find a way to live with in your means. You don't want to go into debt.
