if you get more than one card, and pay them off one card with another... as long as you don't mess around and spend more than you have.. that's a good way to build up your credit

will give you a free credit report and will allow you to dispute anything on your credit report. Just a heads up search experian for your credit report. I found them to be the best.

all good info, fyi you can file for bankruptcy once and some companies will still issue you credit cards/loans. however if you file for bankruptcy atleast twice then thats pretty much the end of uf credit history, no bank/cc company will ever take the chance on you.

nah it doesn't lower your score unless you haven't paid for long periods of time and they send your account to the collections department. They usually send u a notice (or maybe a few of them) before they do it though.

actually, paying your cell phone on time or most of the time doesn't effect your credit score. in fact, it doesn't appear on your credit at all. it only appears when you refuse to pay ur unpaid balance.

Yes. Your name is on the account and you are a "owner" of that account. Get your own if someone else is messing up. Don't ride the wave down with them.

dont know if this has been posted, but if you have several credit cards and DONT USE THEM, it will help your credit score. having several cards means that you have access to more money than you would with one card. so having a couple cards on the side will help. just dont get too many, because credit companies will get suspicious


Actually if you have several cards and don't use them that is actually isn't good from a credit card company standpoint. Those credit card companies review your credit card accts pretty regularly and if the see accts that have been used for sometime or even ever they will close them and it will show as closed by the creditor which reflects negatively on your credit(especially if you apply for new credit cards, etc.)

agreed, but the creditor will never cancel or close your account without a person's consent. the only way they can do that is if you don't pay your bill...

but yeah, its better to use your credit cards regularly, just make sure u only spend amounts of money you can pay back. Keep doing this and it will show a good credit history. The reason credit companies don't like to see accts that are not active is because they need to see that you know how to pay your bills on time. and if you don't have a credit history, its impossible for them to do this.

Actually if you have a card that hasnt been used in a 5-6 month period they will close the card out automatically thinking that you never received it or never used it. which will look good on your credit though

i had one card that they did that too

The credit card's definition of you giving your consent = you verbally agreeing by phone or signing a credit card application and getting approved for your credit card



The credit card company that I worked for closed unused accts out all the time and then sent you a letter or notice( if you were lucky) to let you know they did it. If you weren't lucky enough to get a letter, you usually found out after pulling your credit report and seeing the "closed by creditor" notice on your credit report. You usually don't want your credit report showing that the credit card company closed the acct for you regardless of what the reason is.

Yeah let me add to that. not matter what you stuff is.. even if you know you owe them.. DOnt let them Close the account out.. if you find out (barring you got a letter.) have them open teh account back up and then you call back a few days later and close it out your self. This will report as "Closes by Client" and this will report good on your credit; giving that you balance is satisfatory

worst case sernio... (what im going through now) is that they can take you to court and put a judgement on it. then they will take it out of your paycheck. 15% of each pay till its done... so i would pay it if i was you. or settle something..

Another type of credit card that can help build credit is one from a department store. However somtimes those often require a major credit card. But for a young person the shops at a major store such as Old Navy then getting a credit card from that store may be beneficial to that person.

yeah I was in the same situation. But mine was a car loan. They took me to court and we negotiated a settlement. But it still appears as a negative on my credit report... for right now, at least.

Yeah they can, if they feel the amount is large enough for them to undergo the charges. If they don't take you to court, it'll be a BIG negative on your credit report and they'll keep calling and harrassing you lol.

i used to believe that was the case but i heard recently that creditors are starting to tighten credit and they are closing accounts they deem to be a risk, i hope this never happens to anyone here, i read about it in a couple of places, them just clsing cards becasue of the access to too much credit and cash in relation to peoples income, has anyone else heard of this?

So what's a great recommened start up card for a college student?
i think citicard platinum select card for students is good, they have a good credit protector program so if you are late on a payment it wont report negative on your credit as long as you notify them and top of this they give u a generous credit line and they have excellent cutomer service. i have had experiences with amex, citi, chase, capone and wells fargo:citi,capone and amex people have always been the best customer service wise, wf is the absolute worse,chase is in the middle but i have had friends who have had horrible experiences with chase. I would say do not get a wells fargo card, they have possibly the worst customer service and are very bad about notifying you about card status. If you are going to get an amex i would recommend starting with the student blue card cuz the charge cards with no limits are dangerous even to long time credit card holders (think about nicole richies charge syndrome in the simple life, anyone can get charge disease when they carry those amex charge cards) cuz u can literally charge whatever they deem you can pay on the card, and if you never miss payments and charge alot, you can end up charging huge purchases on a charge card that must be paid-in-full monthly (i have heard of people chargings 120000 s-classes on their amex charge cards) if you screw up with an amex charge card and charge more than you can pay, they will have in their records that you were past due if you did not pay the entire balance from the statement that month, even if you paid a large amount of the purchases off (which i did, luckily i paid it off in time with some help from my awesome parents and still hold the card) they will teach you a lesson and you will not want to make a mistake with them again becasue it is a serious privilege to hold an amex charge card. Again, overall i recommend the citi or the capone as a starter, both excellent customer service programs, but i really think the citi credit protector is better and would recommend you get the card and credit protector as a student. After college its a whole diffnt ballgame, youll have lots of disposable income and probably be able to carry an amex or large credit lie cards with any creditor but for buildding excellent credit initially the citi or capone. I hope you get some good advice and have an excellent credit experience.
