A good thing is to have one credit card, whether it be a Visa or a Mastercard. I say this because if you ever get into a jam most rental car companies will not take a debit card, it must be an actual credit card.

When you don't have a credit history, it can be difficult and frustrating when trying to obtain a credit card or other type of loan. Establishing your initial credit history can be a Catch-22.

No. No one will ever get your runescape password even if you let someone use a credit card, you only know the password to runescape.

No. Major reputable credit card companies won't even activate your card until you have the device in your hand.Reputable credit card companies will NOT activate your card prior to sending the card out regardless of your permission.

Of course. Your credit report is a history of how you have managed debt. If there is no history recorded on you, how can a lender use that ordinary way to assess your level of risk as a borrower? Many lenders prefer to see bad credit over non-existent credit. It's unfortunate, because credit=debt. But in modern financial life, you have to have a credit record to get future credit, so we all need to get credit and manage it properly. Good luck to you! You would think so, wouldn't you? But my first credit card was a gold card with a $5000 limit. I got the application in the mail, filled it out and in no time I had my first card. Fortunately, I had the sense not to use it. I was married and just wanted a card to establish my own credit in case I ever ended up on my own. I was 19, had no job or income of any kind, and no one co-signed for me. I don't understand how CCC can get away with giving cards to people with no income.

First Baseball Card ValueMade over 130 years ago there is a debate on which is the first card ever made. One of the cards under debate as the first player to appear on a baseball card is Dave Birdsall "The Old Man" of the Unions of Morisannia ball club (1866-1870). Dave Birdsall later became a member of the Cincinnati Red Stockings the first professional baseball team in 1869, and a card picturing this team is another baseball card that has been given credit as the first. The 1989 Cincinnati Red Stockings was recently discovered in 2009 by a 72 year old Californian woman. She almost sold the card on eBay for $10.

Credit card debt is debt incurred as a result of using said credit card to make purchases of items that you don't have the money to buy at that particular time. Not saying that credit card use is bad, but one should always have the means for paying off that debt every month back down to a "zero" balance. It's all too easy to get in over ones head in credit card debt - doesn't take long to max out that credit card, then you have no more credit and still have to pay it back without ever using it again. Normal monthly payments could take 14 years or longer to repay. Use credit wisely and responsibly ... it's better for you and for our economy.
