Credit Cards for Fair Credit

Advertiser Disclosure

If you have a fair credit rating (roughly a FICO credit score of 660–699), you fall within a challenging range as far as your credit card selection goes.

You’re not out of luck, though. There are plenty of unsecured credit cards from major issuers and banks for people with fair credit. Generous rewards, cash back, and points programs may be noticeably absent from credit cards. They might also not include some of the cardmember perks like purchase protection, rental vehicle coverages, and other services typically available to people with more favorable scores.
