I'm getting declined on every basic/average credit card
I'm 21 and I'm finally trying to approve my credit score so I can have good credit post-graduate. I have a score of 648 according to Credit Karma and I applied to Capital One Journey and Capital One QuicksilverOne and got declined on both. I'm a student and I work part time (~9.50/hr, 10 hours a week). I also have a debit card with 2 checking accounts. I don't know what I should do to improve me credit. I have the funds to use a credit card instead of my debit card, what am I doing wrong?
