I would like to start creating credit history in US but because I don't have any and I'm new in US, no bank want to give me a credit card. I heard that Google financing is quite liberal when it comes to giving its credit cards. Do theirs card have any impact on credit score just like a cards from a bank?

    where did you hear google offers a credit card? – depperm Apr 23 '18 at 12:06
  • This may be in reference to Google Store Financing (offered in conjunction with Synchrony Financial). From what I've gathered, it acts like a credit card that you can only use to buy products from Google. e.g. if you want to get an expensive new Google phone but can't afford to pay cash and have no other credit. I searched for more information but a handful of the links about this offering at Google itself don't lead me to the page indicated in search results -- perhaps because this program is for U.S. consumers only and I am in Canada. – Chris W.

    If you want to build credit and have some money handy, consider a secured credit card instead. Unless you buy enough stuff from Google to justify opening a credit account with them (which seems unlikely). – cHao Apr 23 '18 at 16:13
