Get started! Rebuild your credit.

An ideal situation for your credit to start building/rebuilding or growing is to open 3 secured credit cards. 
We believe in a debt free life, so the best plan is to use your own money while re-establishing your credit.

Unlike traditional banks (Bank of America, US Bank, Wells Fargo i.e.) these banks will not report them as secured
cards and therefore no one will know its your own money. They will actually report as normal credit cards and the
bureaus will count them as regular credit cards and it will help you tremendously.
 

Ideal Instructions on how to use the cards:

  •  Use at least once every 4-6 months
  •  Try your best not to use more than 25% from the given limit
  •  Always pay in full
  •  Another great idea is if you have any friends or relatives with good established credit cards that have no late payments on them, ask them to add you as an authorized user on 2 or 3 cards for a period of four to six months
  • Some banks will accept that, but will not actually report to the credit bureaus, so make sure the banks representative will ask for your social security number and date of birth. Whoever does this for you may rest assured that your bad credit will not have any effect on them at all
