I’m 17 and moving very far for college and I’ll be getting on a plane to move. I’ll be going back and forth abt four times a year also. I would like to get a credit card to a: start earning frequent flyer miles b: start building up my credit by paying for my flights only with my credit card and then paying them off and c: just to have one if I absolutely need it. However I won’t be turning 18 till September and I need to book my flight now to leave in August. Neither of my parents have credit cards so I can’t use theirs. Anyway, my question is what is the best way to go about trying to get one before I leave? And should I consider emancipation? If not, what are my options to try to get a credit card?
