How do I get a credit card with a "thin file"?
I have several collections on my account for medical bills. Most of them are just to high for me to repay. I would like to do something to help my credit but I am not sure where to start. I am sure that I will get denied a credit card. This site says I have a "thin file" so is it worth it for me to even try to get a secured card?
