My first credit card was a Texaco Gas Card (was in college) 26 years old. One year later I got a BankAmericard with a $300 limit and a Northwestern National Bank Southwest MasterCard with a $1,000 credit limit. Then I added a few charge cards like American Express Gold.

How old were you when you got your first credit card?

Happy Holidays to everyone! Is anyone planning to give pre-paid cards as presents? I am curious if that is still popular.

It was my niece's birthday this weekend and I bought her a fake credit card. She loves it!

Someone sent this to me and thought this was a pretty good overview.

I think roughly 15-16 is the right age to get a child your first credit card.

What does everyone think the appropriate age is to get your first credit card?

I definitely think there could be more out there especially for millennials. FinanceGlobe should start one!

Great undertaking. In my researching one of the comments I keep seeing from the twenty year old age bracket is the lack of any training at home or in school on how to manage daily living finances.
