The key to applying for a credit card is to have full and accurate information ready at hand to supply to the Company from which you wish to secure the credit card. First, make sure you provide your full legal name. Second, provide your Date of Birth.
Next, provide the company your home address. In addition, provide them your phone number, and your email address. The credit card company will want to know your current place of employment as well as your past work history. They will want to know what you are earning per year (your Gross Income). They will probably want to know what other credit cards you hold.
You can go to the institution and apply in person for a credit card. You can also call a credit card issuer and talk to a customer service representative personally. Furthermore, you can usually apply on-line via a company's on-line application platform.
