It depends on the credit issuer. Some issuers do deduct the activation fee from the opened line of credit, but most issuers require a checking account or a debit or credit card, which will be used to charge the activation fee. If you do not have any bank account or card, try to find the card without activation fee. You can use our tool to find the card you need.

When you carry a balance on a credit card, your minimum monthly payment will depend on the amount you owe, interest rate and fees. As a rule, you have to pay 1%-2% of your card balance plus new interest and late payment fees (if applicable). If you have any past due amounts, they will be added to the minimum payment as well. So, the more you owe on your credit card, the higher your minimum payment will be. However, you can avoid interest if you pay off the card balance in full each month. Also, there are credit cards with 0% intro APRs that do not charge interest during introductory period.
BB&T cards come with 0% intro APR on purchases, that is a great feature. But you don't mention if you are planning to earn rewards on your purchases, as only BB&T Spectrum credit card comes with cash back rewards. You may choose from cash back credit offers with 0% intro APR.
Credit cards from famous brands often come with high rates and fees. If you want to get credit card for your Uber rides, consider 0% and low intererst credit cards to avoid getting stuck with high interest rates or rewards credit cards. Depending on your lifestyle and preferences you may choose to earn miles, points or cash back on your purchases.
