Do the Walmart pre-paid cards help build credit?
My bank suggested getting pre-paid cards to help build credit. I assume that they meant a secured card, but I have been unable to get approved for one. I do NOT have any credit cards, all my debt is medical bills/ school loans, things of that sort. I did get a buy here pay here car that reports to the 3 agencies, is there any other tips for helping build my credit??

ALSO- I'm making minimal payments on my medical bills and my student loans are on deferment since I am enrolled in classes again.
