Newbie from Sweden
I’ve just started resarching what would be the best cards for me. Unfortunately I’m pretty sure I can’t apply for any american cards except American Express here in Sweden. Any other cards availabe? What programs are best for me?
Hi Martin, welcome! The site is USA focused since that is where Ben is primarily located but also because that is where the credit card marketplace allows for greater opportunities. Tiffany does have a primer for non USA folks that you can find here: [URL]http://onemileatatime.boardingarea.com/2015/07/30/choose-credit-card-outside-us/[/URL]
Unless you have a US SSN
Or possibly a ITIN
It’s simply impossible to get US credit cards in most cases today.
Try reading this and see if it helps
Also Citi has this, might be possible to start a customer relationship with one of their European branches and then use that for a basis for a US account.
