Requirements

Top ↑

When applying for a credit card, you must provide personal information such as your complete name, birthdate, social security number, address, and annual income. When providing your income you must include your household income, alimony payments, and your partner’s income if you can use it for payments.

Improve your chances of approval

To increase your chances of approval, you must know your credit status. You can start by checking your credit score, and remember that here at crediverso you can do it entirely for free. Afterwards, you should apply for credit cards that go with your profile. This will ease your application process by choosing the best fits for you. 

What to do if rejected

Bad news, you got rejected. Don’t worry, you can still apply for other credits; the important thing is that you don’t do it right away. This will make you look desperate to any borrowers, and it will lower your chances of getting approved. Ask for the credit report that led to the denial. There you can see the causes that led to the decision and then be able to take steps to improve your credit score for future applications. Remember that secured cards are an excellent option when improving your credit score.

In a nutshell

When applying for a credit card, you will be asked for basic personal information. Make sure to evaluate your credit report and aim for specific products made for you, which will increase your chances of getting approved. By doing so, you will also avoid a hard inquiry (that happens when a lender checks your credit scores on its own), which has negative impacts on your score.
