FYI BB&T bank - for checking and secured credit card.

Hi Guys FYI

I am on a K1 visa and yesterday opened up a checking account and applied for a Secured Credit card through BB&T bank. I was asked for two forms of picture ID. (UK driving license and Passport) I also provided my SS number which I had applied for a week earlier as further ID.

The credit card is by invitation only and you have to ask for it as it is not part of their general Credit card range, but is designed for those who have no credit. I was told that in 6 months, If I pay the repayments that I should be able to be transferred onto their unsecured card.

The process was painless. BB&T is not available in all states however.

Cheers P
