Applying for a Card

Maria found the application process a breeze doing it online. She just entered the info they asked for in the boxes.

• Her name, address, contact info, and social security number. Social security numbers are used to get a person’s credit score from the credit bureaus.

• The skinny on what she makes.

• Then check to make sure it’s right, and click "done." And she's done!
