Does the Bancorp Purple Diamond RushCard help establish credit history? I have never had a credit card and have been denied multiple times as they say I have no credit. I am looking for a card that will help me establish credit.

No. The Prepaid Visa® Purple Diamond RushCard won’t help you establish credit history because this is a prepaid card. To establish your credit history, consider credit cards for people with no or limited credit history. For example look at the credit card. The card fits your credit history and your credit performance will be reported to the credit bureaus.
