From my experience of having applied for many credit cards, that really depends on your credit score. If you have a low credit score and want to get a credit card, you’ll have to apply for credit cards specifically designed for helping you build and establish credit. Those type of credit card will almost always approve you. The interest rate however is usually very high, and they start you out with with a very low credit line. They are also fee based, which means that you have to pay a processing fee, which eats up most of the credit line they’re extending out to you. However, if you pay on time, they report it to your credit bureau and that will help you in the long run.
