How To Get More Credit

If you have credit, it is likely that you can get more from your current credit card company(ies) or by completing new applications. You may also be able to get short term credit as a bank overdraft.

Even if you don't have credit, or if you have a poor credit history, you can likely still get credit through a card with a small limit, a secured card, a local store or even with a co-signer. If you pay your new credit on a timely basis, it sets you up for obtaining more credit. For information about these alternatives, see the other sections of this article.
