Great for Students, Too

The DCU Visa Platinum is the perfect card for college students. Online access is easy when you're away from home through Online Banking and it is safer than cash.

If your own financial situation doesn't allow you to qualify for a card on your own (based on your credit history, income, and expenses), you'll need to have an adult co-borrower who does qualify – most often a parent. That offers four advantages:

  1. It allows you to begin building your own credit history
  2. It may qualify you for a higher credit limit
  3. It can result in a lower interest rate since your rate will be determined by the best personal credit history among your co-borrowers
  4. Your co-borrowers can access the account through Online Banking and can easily help make payments by online transfer from their own DCU accounts

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT SERVICE, AND MORE THAN I WENT TO THE BRANCH FOR. I WENT INTO THE BRANCH TO GET MY DEBIT CARD EXAMINED BECAUSE THE CHIP COULD NOT BE READ AT SOME AREA STORES. THE DCU SERVICE PERSON WAS VERY FRIENDLY AND EFFICIENT, AND PRODUCED A NEW DEBIT CARD FOR ME. SHE THEN SAID I DIDN'T HAVE A DCU CREDIT CARD, AND SHE WOULD BR GLAD TO SIGN ME UP FOR A DCU VISA CARD, WHICH WAS PRODUCED IN A FEW MINUTES. I THINK THE SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT!

Apply with no credit?

Can you apply for a credit card if you have ZERO credit? If so, what can you apply for as a limit?
Asked by: matt
Yes, I applied and received this card with zero credit. This is my first credit card and depending on how much you make at work is the amount you are loaned. You need to have a stable job for at least 3 months and have pay stubs to prove it. That's all it took for me!

What factors are looked at when applying for a secured credit card? I have a good job and and make good money but have a low credit score.

Asked by: Secured Card
I'm in the same boat as you with good income but poor credit. I was approved for a visa platinum card (didn't have to do the secured card). Every other company would only approve me for a secured card. And with the DCU card I was approved for a higher limit with a lower interest rate than all the others. I recommend applying.
