I have moved from India to the U.S. I have signed up for a checking account, but do not have any credit history. Do I stand a chance of getting a credit card that offers me cash back or has a good rewards option? I’m not sure if the lack of credit history will affect my application.

Before you apply for a credit card, make sure you have a U.S. Social Security number. You will need it to fill out an application form.

credit card for people with no credit history is a good option for you. Some of the cards have rewards programs and others have 0% introductory APR periods. So compare the cards to find the best one for you.

You can also consider applying for a secured credit card. They do not have rewards programs, but come with lower APRs. You will need to put down a security deposit before you can get a secured card.
