I want to build credit and want to know if I can do this using a credit card from a gas station like RaceTrac? I often buy their gas.

Answered on

RaceTrac does not offer a consumer credit card, only business credit cards. Nevertheless, we would not recommend you to apply for a credit card offered by a gas station. Typically such credit cards are for people with established credit. More than that, they usually have rather high interest rates, so you may accrue interest pretty fast if you do not pay off the card balance each month. We would recommend you to apply for a general credit card instead. There are offers for people with no credit and these cards come with rather low interest rates.
