I'm new to this credit thing. is Credit one a good way to start building credit?
That was one of my first ones the key is to not buy sh*t you cant afford and keep the limit down but check the interest rates off all cards before opening up a credit card I can tell you right no the interest rates at capital one suck they tax me a good $35 a month on interest alone. first premier charges a monthly fee of $7 and a $49 annual fee which isn't bad but if you can get a credit card through your credit union I think you will be better off if you ask me

So my credit is almost at 700 finally got a credit card I wasn't a big fan of credit cards but I decided to get one to build my credit.

My question is, how many credit cards is a good number to have? I barely use it and keep it under 30%. I'm thinking a minimum of 2 cards and I can sort of use both cards to pay off each other when necessary.

Should I grab another card lot should I continue to make payments on this card and just wait a little to get another one?
its all up to you I got a dozen im trying to scale back sometimes its better to just have one with a high a.ss credit limit if you do grab one make sure it has a low interest rate and I can't even close none of mine cuz you lower your credit score when you do that so I just use one a week and pay it off on payday but if anybody interested in hearing my credit story im glad to tell it I done destroyed and rebuild my credit twice that sh*t will come through for you in ways you could never imagine

At the moment I currently have only a credit limit of $1000. I wouldn't mind having a credit line of 5k just to feel more comfortable. I made a couple sacrifices and at the moment I have two cars (paid off) and hardly any bills. The majority of my pay checks come to me. So, I'm in saving mode and building my credit. I used to have my money right and didn't even think about using credit or any of this stuff. But after a couple bad investments I'm building my capital back up.

if u can pay off a car note thats a even better line of credit than a credit card on the scale credit cards are the lowest line of credit one can have then car notes, personal loans then mortgage and you on top i got one with a 2800 limit and one with a 2200 limit

Yeah, but I paid cash. Don't really feel comfortable getting a car note at the moment. Maybe in the future. Ain't ready to take on that type of payment at the moment might move to a new city and make a transition getting a new job and wouldn't want to fall behind in any payments while doing that.

Ok. so I'm getting ready to go to Capital One and asked for a secured card?
I know this is going to sound repetitive but what exactly is a secured card?
I put $1,000 on the card...and then what?
Also, what happens after a secured card.. like what are the steps?
Damn it, why they dont teach this is in school? lol

Last question, what is considered good or bad credit?
500 and down=bad
600 and up=good?

a secured credit card si a card you put $ on to establish credit and you use it just like a credit card except its like a loan to yourself instead of the bank loaning you a line of credit. to answer your second question any credit score above 650 is considered good.

A great to build credit is by leasing or financing a car...your credit score will instantly shoot up 500-650.

Get a credit card but never go over 30% of your limit. That is because your credit score is is also determined by how much money you use each month out of your available balance. Even if you pay it back on time every month. A credit utilization of 30% or less is the magic number to building a higher credit score.

I'm bout to do you a favor. If you do the following, your score will jump 15-20 points. It's quick and easy.

First, get your credit reports for each bureau. I recommend , it's only $1 and it's the real real, not that FAKO sh*t(credit karma). Once you got the reports pay close attention to the personal information section.

I'm willing to bet there are errors on each one. Whether it's your name spelled wrong, wrong name, the address has a spelling error or is old, etc. Call each credit bureau and use the same name and address for each one. Make sure it's spelled exactly the same for each bureau. If there are any old names or addresses say you want them removed and only 1 name, 1 address and 1 employer listed. The employer is optional, if it's empty for all 3 bureaus leave it blank, or if you just want it blank say you want your employer removed. If they ask why just say you don't work for them anymore.

If you don't want to call, you can fax them a letter asking to update the personal information. If your driver's license has your name/address spelled exactly how you want it, you can fax them a copy of that as well and it will expedite the process.

The point is to have every credit bureau list your personal information exactly the same. Once all 3 bureaus update to the same information, your score will jump up instantly. If you do this, let us know your results and thank me later.

"Add Extra Money
I also started adding extra money to all my debts. Iím not sure how much that helped, but it was something that I had to do."

Could you explain what you meant by adding extra money? Did you mean you requested an increase on your credit lines?
