Yah, you deposit $500 or $1000 [or whatever you want] with the bank and they give you a card up to that limit.

That's one of the goofball things about credit. It's not just they want to know if you have a record of not paying things, but they want to see a record of you regularly paying things. If you live smart and never use credit for anything you're like a 'credit ghost' in the system. That's all fine and dandy as long as you don't actually want to get credit.
