Unfortunately, I do not believe you would be able to gain approval for the Hot Topic credit card if you are completely new to the world of credit and have no established credit history. When you go to apply for the Hot Topic credit card on their website, the fine print states “If you are 18 years of age and have a major credit card in your name, you may apply for a Hot Topic Guest List Credit Card…” Based on this, someone in your position would be able to obtain the Hot Topic credit card. Instead, think about building your credit with a card designed for that.
