I'm looking into signing up for my first credit card... hear me out. My parents are buried in CC debt, i've learned from their mistakes, and have incredible self control if I do say so myself. The only reason I want a card is to build credit since I have NONE. I ran a free credit report online and it turns out that I basically have no credit. Heck, I was even turned down for a clothing store's card.
Any advice on what to look for in a first card and/or a solid way to build credit?
