If you can’t qualify for a traditional credit card because you have a thin credit file, the AvantCard Credit Card may offer an alternative route to continue establishing your credit history — unless you live in one of a handful of states where the card is not offered.
The AvantCard Credit Card doesn’t require a security deposit, but some will pay an annual fee of $29. The exact amount is unknown until you go through the card's pre-qualification process.
There are no foreign transaction fees. The ongoing APR is 25.49% Variable, and it reports to all three major credit bureaus: TransUnion, Equifax and Experian.
You don’t have an abundance of options with limited credit, but there are some alternative credit cards that may be better suited for your goals. For more information, see NerdWallet’s full review of this card.
