f you’re building your credit score from scratch, Community Credit Repair suggest you’ll likely need to start with a secured credit card. A secured card is backed by a cash deposit you make upfront; the deposit amount is usually the same as your credit limit.
You’ll use the card like any other credit card: Buy things, make a payment on or before the due date, incur interest if you don’t pay your balance in full. Your cash deposit is used as collateral if you fail to make payments.
You’ll receive your deposit back when you close the account.
Secured credit cards aren’t meant to be used forever. The purpose of a secured card is to qualify for a card without a deposit.
Secured credit cards aren’t meant to be used forever. The purpose of a secured card is to build your credit enough to qualify for an unsecured card — a card without a deposit and with better benefits. Choose a secured card with a low annual fee and make sure it reports to all three credit bureaus, Equifax, Experian and TransUnion.
Community Credit Repair also suggest a credit-builder loan. It is exactly what it sounds like. Its sole purpose is to help people build credit.
Typically, the money you borrow is held by the lender in an account and not released to you until the loan is repaid. It’s a forced savings program of sorts, and your payments are reported to credit bureaus. These loans are most often offered by credit unions or community banks; at least one lender offers them online. This will report to your credit bureau as an installment loan.
Community Credit Repair we believe this is the fastest way to build your credit.
BECOME AN AUTHORIZED USER ON SOMEONE ELSE’S CREDIT CARD
A family member or significant other may be willing to add you as an authorized user on his or her card. As an authorized user, you’ll enjoy access to a credit card and you’ll build credit history, but you aren’t legally obligated to pay for your charges.
Find out whether the card issuer reports authorized user activity to the credit bureaus.
Ask the primary cardholder to find out whether the card issuer reports authorized user activity to the credit bureaus. That activity generally is reported, but you’ll want to make sure — otherwise your credit-building efforts may be wasted.
You should come to an agreement on how you’ll use the card before you’re added as an authorized user. If the primary cardholder expects you to pay your share, make sure you do so even though you aren’t legally obligated.
Not all credit cards will report to credit bureaus the authorized users information. For a complete list call Community Credit Repair at 888-580-2879
