The Petal Visa® Credit Card is an ideal starter card for someone with little or no credit history.
That's because the card's issuing bank can consider more than just traditional FICO scores to determine your creditworthiness. It may also evaluate factors like your income, savings and spending. You won't need to put down a security deposit, and the card's annual fee is $0. In fact, the card promises no fees at all.
The card also earns rewards. It’s an ideal option for starting the clock on your credit history.
