My first credit card I got was in Sept of 1996 I was a senior in high school, it was a JC Penny's charge account, that was back when they had their own finance company, back before GEMB, it had a $200.00 credit line, then about 4 months later I applied for a L S Ayers Charge account, $200.00 limit as well, then The Buckle, $300.00 Limit, then Stage Stores, now Peebles, it was like $450.00, the I got a Marshall Fields, Target, Hudsons, then after a year of begging a Norwest Bank Classic Visa Card with a $1000.00 limit, but it wasnt until my mother cosigned for me to get an installment loan to pay off all the above charge accounts that I was able to get a auto loan through NBD Bank back in May of 1999 to purchase my first vehicle

Hmm I was a little younger when I got my ccs and did not do well at all. Years have passed and I learned about rebuilding my credit and now I am back with 2 ccs and am very pleased with the outcome so far

I was 18 last year when I got my first credit card. It was from Capital One and they started me off with $500. Now I'm at $3,550 after combining it with another Capital One card.

i was 19 years old when i acquired my Mervyns card this was my first then I was hit ny the bug not long after i got a JC Penneys, circuit city, lerner, lane bryant, went to the credit union to open a savings account they gave a credit card and a line of credit

then it went down hill from there i could not pay all of these people back the worst was the line of credit they put a judgement on my credit report and i could not get a thing
