Credit Cards for Bad Credit

If you have a bad credit rating (roughly a FICO Score below 660), your selection of credit cards is typically very limited.  Your credit score can get this low as a result of several different kinds of financial disasters, including having collection accounts, charge-offs, going bankrupt, receiving tax liens, or having a long history of delinquent payments. See our picks for the best credit cards for bad credit here.
