Consider a Secured or Prepaid Card

Helpful to 3 out of 4 people

Credit card issuers require you to provide your bank account information to reduce the risk that you will default on payments. 

If you apply for a secured credit card, the card issuer will usually open an FDIC-insured deposit account in your name. Your deposits in this account will be used as collateral for your secured credit card. (Note that secured credit cards tend to have annual fees, high interest rates or both.)

Another option is a prepaid card. Which can be used to pay for purchases just like a credit card. However, there must be funds in the prepaid card in order for you to make purchases.

Credit Karma has a list of prepaid cards to compare: https://www.creditkarma.com/creditcards/prepaid/.

You can't. That looks risky to them. How are you going to pay them back?

...Or you can go to walgreens and buy a Visa or Amex gift card, load it up with your cash and then go out and use it. It may help you feel as if you were using a credit card. :)
