The easiest store credit cards to get are the Fingerhut Credit Account, the Montgomery Ward Credit Account, and the Walmart Store Card. None of these cards require more than “fair” credit for approval, and they all have $0 annual fees. Some applicants might even be able to get approved with bad credit.
The Fingerhut Credit Account is the easiest store credit card to get because you can get approved with bad credit in some situations. Things you can buy with the Fingerhut Credit Account include clothing, shoes, electronics, garden supplies, tools, and more. And this card will build your credit - it reports to major credit bureaus monthly.
The Montgomery Ward Credit Account is available to people with limited credit or better. This credit card doesn’t report to credit bureaus, so it won’t build your credit. But it does allow you to buy Montgomery Ward merchandise at special discounts. And there’s opportunity for a credit limit increase.
The Walmart Store Card is available for people with fair credit or better, but reports online suggest you can get approved with bad credit. It gives 5% back at Walmart.com and in-app, including grocery pickup and delivery, and 2% back at Walmart stores.
Although store credit cards usually can’t be used anywhere except for the store they’re branded with, they are a great way to save on some of your biggest purchases. They’re also much easier to get than most rewards cards. And if the card reports to the major credit bureaus every month, you can build up your credit score.
