Applying for a credit card is a pretty straightforward process. You’ll need to gather a few pieces of information to have ready when you fill out the application:

  • Full legal name
  • Mailing address
  • Phone number
  • Email address
  • Social Security number
  • Name and contact information for your employer
  • Estimated annual income

If you plan on having a co-signer on your account, you will need to have all that information for that person as well. Once you have collected all your personal information, you are ready to apply. All you need to do is enter the requested information.
