Using A Credit Card To Rebuild Credit







Using a credit card to rebuild credit is certainly possible, but involves going about things in a certain way. This article looks at how you can achieve this and why doing things in this way will benefit you in the long run.

Performing a financial misdemeanor, such as missing a personal loan repayment and defaulting on a credit card affects your credit score in a bad way. As a result, many people across the country are struggling with a low credit score, which in turn means that they are often refused for new credit products, as they are seen as a credit risk to the lender.

For those that are stuck in this predicament, the good news is that there is a way out by using a credit card to rebuild credit. The key to doing this is to get the correct type of credit card and then spending on it wisely and managing your account in an appropriate manner, which will result in an increase in your credit rating.

As you already have bad credit, do not expect to be accepted for unsecured credit cards with low rates of APR. In fact, you should not even apply for cards like this, as rejected applications negatively affect your credit score even more. The best way of going about things is to find and apply for a good quality secured credit card. These usually offer guaranteed acceptance, even to those with bad credit.

A secured credit card has much the same uses as an unsecured card, but the main difference is that you are required to make an upfront deposit of your own funds, when you first get the card. This deposit then acts as security against you defaulting on the card, and also becomes your credit limit. The amount of the deposit will be up to you, but will typically be a minimum of $100.

Once you receive your new secured credit card, it is absolutely vital that you use it in a responsible manner. The best way of going about things is to purchase a few items on the card every month, but make sure you make your repayment well before the due date every time you receive a statement.

It is also suggested that you pay the balance off in full wherever possible, and do not carry a high balance over from month to month. Making on-time repayments will give you the appearance of a reliable and trustworthy customer, and will see a small increase in your credit rating every month.

In order for the credit card to rebuild credit, it is vital that you choose a secured credit card that offers monthly reporting to the three major credit bureaus (Equifax, Experian and Trans Union). Without this you are simply wasting your time.

On top of this, when choosing a secured credit card to rebuild credit, you should shop around for the card that offers you the best deal. This means a low or medium rate of APR, as well as the lowest fees and charges possible. Fees and charges vary wildly from card to card, so do your research before making any applications.

Using the above method, although your credit score will not leap up overnight, slowly but surely you will get there. As your credit increases you become eligible for better value credit products, and once accepted for these you can restart the entire process again, and be well on the way to achieving a good credit rating.
