How can I get a credit card without it being prepaid so I can pay off some of my open accounts?
I've tried numerous times to get a credit card but I was turned down for all but prepaid cards that don't help me do crap. Plus all the inquiries from the card companies made my score go lower, so how do I get a line of credit to pay off my open accounts in collections and start making payments to positively affect my credit score ?
