To confirm if I use my Canadian credit bureau to get a US based credit card, it will help me establish US credit and reflect on my US credit bureau? I would like to start building my US credit. Thanks.

Hi I am also a Canadian citizen who just moved to the states. I now have a US permanent address and work address, US phone number and also US SSN. I set up a borderless plan account and also a US dollar credit Card before I left Canada. My first question is whether by using the US dollar credit card I will build credit in the US. My second question is can I use my TD bak US chgecking account to pay the balance on my US dollar credit card. My third question is whether I can apply for a TD first class US VISA card in the US through my Canadian credit and Canadian SIN, if approved, using the TD first class VISA in the US would build my US credit rating right? My fourth question is whether TD first class VISA is the right card for me and whether I will get approved. I gross >90K US a year and I will travel between the US and Canada (boston-toronto) every 4 weeks.
Thank you for your help.

Hello, can I provide SIN only to apply for a credit card? I have not received my SSN but would like to build my credit before I move to the US. I noticed that the application form has a * to indicate that SSN is required field. Thank you.

Just to make sure if I understand it correctly. So, if I live in Canada and have no US address, I won't be able to apply for a USD credit card. Or is there any other way to get a USD credit card without having a US address?

In reply to Ray, Vaughan
Sorry for any confusion, Ray.
In order to apply for a credit card online, you would need to be able to verify a US address.
In addition to this, the information mentioned above is still accurate at this time. If you have additional questions about Cross Border Banking and credit cards, please reach out to a Cross Border Banker, 24/7 at 800-700-2913.
Thanks for joining in, Ray. Talk to you soon.
