Video: How to Get US Credit Cards for Canadians

Getting US credit cards is an important way for Canadian and other non-US points collectors to raise their travel game.

In this updated guide, we’ll walk you through the entire process of getting your US credit file up and running, from getting your US address and bank account to getting your first US-issued credit card, all the way through to getting all of the best credit cards from Amex, Chase, Citi, and Capital One

    Same question here. I got my Hilton No Fee last April and now I’m planning to get my second one. If I go through the direct application, it’s asking me for ITIN and I can’t submit the application without it. Do I have to go through Nova again even if I already have a 6-month history?

    Hey Ricky, If I just got my first Amex US card end of Sept through Nova Credit, what are my chances of getting approved for the Bonvoy Brilliant before the elevated offer ends? Do I go through the Nova route again?
