What do you do if you're credit's so bad you can't open a bank account?

Helpful to 20 out of 23 people

Like what Ryan said, I'd get a secured card to start building your credit. That will reflect well on your report and to the banks.

What is the best way to add points to your credit score?

Helpful to 20 out of 26 people

Take on more debt and pay it off on time. That's the simple answer.

Depends on the situation...but it's should only be a complete last resort. What's your current situation? Maybe I could then provide a better recommendation.

I have a citi shell card. Would it help calling them, to get a non gas card?

Helpful to 6 out of 9 people

I called Citi a while back and they recommended a different card for my needs. They parent company of a card doesn't want to lose you as a customer so if they can fit you into another card they're more than happy to do it. Give 'em a ring!

Helpful to 5 out of 8 people

Do you already have cards with Citi? Sometimes they don't like people having too many cards.
