Clean slate.

There are three or four other threads within the last week on this same question, and if you click on the WIKI at the top you'll find a couple articles on the same as well.

P.S. It was 3:56 in the morning when you posted on the West Coast (California) and 6:56 in NY. Most people in the US are still sleeping. Patience will yield a few more answers...

Chill out, buddy. Otherwise your head will explode within 5 days of arrival.

The short answer is that you will have no credit once you arrive.

Probably the reason no one replied to your previous thread was because it was 2 am eastern US time and most of us were sleeping. We are 5 hours behind UK time...something you will have to try to figure out when making calls back home.

BTW if someone doesn't reply we do not stamp our feet and open another thread. Chill out and give it time.

As per everyone elses comments..... No credit! If you can afford to do it, use your UK card here and pay it with your savings/when you get back...

If not, you will only get about $500 credit limit from all card carriers.

How long you here for, is the internship paid?? if so you can secure extra credit with Bank of America by putting money into a savings account with them and they will offset that ammount with giving you a higher credit limit... basically they will just stretch your credit card limit by how much you keep in their bank.

Hope this helps.

Closing the thread as it's a repeat...and come on, give people a chance, it was 6:56am on the east coast when you posted your other thread and anyone sensible would still be in bed, or shovelling their cars out of the drive way.
