when you have a 590, the best credit card to have is one, anyone will give you... typically, you need a 620 score with a decent income, before anyone will even look at you.

do a merged credit pull from all 3 bureaus, with the scores, and see exactly what else is on your report, that might be causing the 590, resolve that, and keep making the payments on time. untill then you need to keep your blalances down to less than 45% of your available credit, and just give it time.

good luck,

FHA home loan with a score under 600

You can get an FHA loan with under a 600 middle score with some lending institutions but not many. I would recommend finding a broker or service to help you locate a reputable lender that can approve your loan at a decent rate. I have client's who have got approved and received a good rate at The Lenders Network with FHA and VA home loans. If anyone can find you a loan they can!
