If you decide to cut up your credit cards, that's generally fine -- particularly if you're overspending with those cards. Just don't cut the credit card you've owned the longest. The longer you've had a credit card opened, the more that helps your credit score (credit scoring firms deems you a reliable risk if you've stayed with a single creditor for a long period of time.) Just remember to keep your credit card utilization rate (i.e., the card credit you have but you're not using) as low as possible, as that helps your credit score.
as I have 3 small debits for under $150 each for medical & 2 that are for the court (MUNICIPAL) that are about $1000 in total. so with everything I have a debit of about $1500 total that is killing my credit. was wanting to get a $1000  fixed interest rate Secured credit card at about 5.99%-8.99%. & start paying off Debit, killing 2 birds with one stone. instead of just paying the debit with cash, use a low interest Secured credit card. paying about $200 month then leaving a low balance of $25 on card to continue to get credit once debits are paid in full.
It may be more helpful to auto schedule payments at the beginning of the month on all of your accounts that allow that option so you won’t have to worry about it for the remainder of the month. If your income is steady enough and your account never hovers around zero, I would definitely suggest setting up auto bill pay for recurring monthly payments.
Must be nice to have a parent who is able to do all that you have done for your daughter as far as putting her on YOUR credit cards as an authorized user. Most of us do not have that luxury. Maybe when Elizabeth Warren or Bernie Sanders are President, eliminating student loan debt for most Americans vs "Putting student loans on an automatic payment schedule" again maybe easy for you but that is the problem, most Americans are just unable to make any payment. Your advice only helps the small few who are fortunate. 
There are many good reasons to know your credit score—it shows you where your credit stands at any one time and it’s a quick way to keep up with your credit health, among other benefits. Just know you’re not entitled to it free of charge at annualcreditreport.com. Whether you can get free scores somewhere else or how much you’d pay depends on the score, seller and a lot of other details.

"I then added her to 3 of my credit cards as an authorized user. I choose the oldest with high credit limits.(I did not give her the cards to use-only added her as an authorized user for my own protection) BEFORE being added as an authorized user be SURE you know the credit history and habits of the owner of the account. If there is a late payment on their account this will be reflected on YOUR credit history!"
Wow, that’s such an awesome question. Okay, first of all… why do you need credit? Are you doing something business related? Are you trying to buy a car? …trying to buy a house? Once we know the answer to that, then we look at your credit situation to determine how to get from where you are to where you want to go (and if tradelines can help). In your situation, you have what some call “juvenile” credit (meaning, it’s young relative to your age). In those situations, tradelines can drastically effect your overall credit score, because you can “back date” cards, such as putting on cards opened around your 18th birthday. Also, we can add lines consistent with your income so scoring models (like FICI) take you out of lower “score cards.” Undoubtedly, your scores will increase by adding tradelines. However, depending on your goal, the increase may or may not be worth it (we are goal oriented, at Superior Tradelines). So, for a more detailed answer that applies to your specific situation, you have to give us a call at 800-431-4171 or get started here: https://superiortradelines.com/start/
In order to get accounts, you have to apply for credit and be approved for credit. For example, applying for and being approved for a credit card. Once that credit card shows up on your credit report, that’s a tradeline. If you pay on time, your credit score will increase as your credit behavior is proven. If you miss payments or max out the account, your credit score will go down.
Opening several credit accounts in a short amount of time can appear risky to lenders and negatively impact your credit score. Before you take out a loan or open a new credit card account, consider the effects it could have on your credit scores. Know too, that when you're buying a car or looking around for the best mortgage rates, your inquiries may be grouped and counted as only one inquiry for the purpose of adding information to your credit report. In many commonly-used scoring models, recent inquiries have greater effect than older inquiries, and they only appear on your credit report or a maximum of 25 months.

No one can legally remove accurate and timely negative information from a credit report. You can ask for an investigation —at no charge to you — of information in your file that you dispute as inaccurate or incomplete. Some people hire a company to investigate for them, but anything a credit repair company can do legally, you can do for yourself at little or no cost. By law:
That's very commendable of you to handle your daughter's financial problems that way.  I used to be employed as a loan officer in finance, but things have changed so much in the last 20-30 years.  I accomplished something very similar to her situation, but I started in the fair range on scoring.  I raised mine 204 points in less than 9 months.  Thanks for passing along this great advice and experience.
If you pay a charge-off in full, your credit report will be updated to show the account balance is $0 and the account is paid. The charge-off status will continue to be reported for seven years from the date of charge off. Another option is to settle charge-offs for less than the original balance if the creditor agrees to accept a settlement and cancel the rest of the debt.
I’d like to share my story too. Just a few weeks ago i was homeless, i was jilted by my online lover. and he had robbed me of everything i had. By the time i realized i was being played, my credit score was already 458 , i had an eviction on my report and a large debt on my credit. I was on my way to the little corner behind the store where i normally sleep when i saw a fellow homeless person who i met some days ago and he was looking so changed and successful. I immediately began to beg him to tell me how he made it so fast and because i had told him my story when we previously met, he understood my problem and gave me the contact of the hacker that helped him. i contacted the programmer (ex FICO and Experian agent) and he fixed my credit, remove bankruptcy permanetly , collection, raised my credit score and cleared all negative listings on my credit in less than 9 days. I would have kept quiet about this, but i won't be able to forgive myself for not helping people who are in terrible conditions like i was.'' besthacker0509 @ gmail . com '' is the programmer's email address. I wish you good-luck. Y’all can thank me later.

You may be wondering, what do they base these scores off of? It’s an important thing to answer since it could help you identify why your credit scores aren’t as high as you assumed they’d be. As outlined in Credit for Canadians, “Credit scoring involves assigning a value, usually points, to different factors that will be used to predict the likelihood of you paying your loan back as agreed.” And loan can mean any type of credit, such as a line of credit, credit card, mortgage, car loan, etc.

Unfortunately, all these outstanding attributes may not be enough if you do not have sufficient credit history. Lenders prefer to give mortgages to buyers who have more than one tradeline and several years of credit history. For home buyers with several tradelines and several years of history you should be able to secure a mortgage without difficulty.

We used Boost My Score to help our clients in our company to help improve their credit. The improvement they were able to accomplish were outstanding. Not only were they able to qualify for higher loans for a better house but also get them a lower interest rate. We would absolutely recommend them for anyone looking to increase their scores within a short period of time.
It doesn’t cost anything to dispute mistakes or outdated items on your credit report. Both the credit reporting company and the information provider (the person, company, or organization that provides information about you to a credit reporting company) are responsible for correcting inaccurate or incomplete information in your report. To take advantage of all your rights, contact both the credit reporting company and the information provider.
Adding quality tradelines to your credit report will increase your score, no matter what. However, you should select them wisely. The wrong tradelines will have a minimal impact. The correct tradelines will have a maximum impact. Also, if you have a substantial amount of negative items, the credit score impact is limited. In those cases, you should consider some form of credit repair or debt settlement prior to adding tradelines.
By checking the box on our application form that states: "I UNDERSTAND BY CHECKING THIS BOX AND PROVIDING MY SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER, I CERTIFY THAT I AM AT LEAST 18 YEARS OF AGE, ACKNOWLEDGE THAT I HAVE RECEIVED AND READ THE LEGAL DISCLOSURES, FEDERAL DISCLOSURE, STATE DISCLOSURE, AND SERVICES AGREEMENT, AND GIVE MY ELECTRONIC SIGNATURE AND LIMITED POWER OF ATTORNEY FOR CREDIT RX AMERICA, ETAL TO PERFORM WORK ON MY BEHALF" you are representing and agreeing that you accept all terms and conditions as if you had physically provided your signature.

If you find an account that you don't recognize, it could be the result of an identity thief using your name to get credit, or a lender may be reporting the account in error. If a fraudster is at work, you can take steps to block the fraudulent information from your credit reports. If the negative account is the result of an error, contact the lender or whoever furnished the information in question, and file a dispute with each credit agency whose report lists the account.
I also don’t recommend trying this if you have missed payments with the issuer or have a downward-trending score. The issuer could see your request for a credit limit increase as a sign that you’re about to have a financial crisis and need the extra credit. I’ve actually seen this result in a decrease in credit limits. So, be sure your situation looks stable before you ask for an increase.
Check your free credit report carefully - it could help you boost your score. Why? It's common for banks, lenders and credit companies to make a mistake. If you spot any accounts that you don't recognize, dates that don't seem to match up, and especially if you see any mention of late payments or penalties, make certain they have been recorded correctly - and don't be afraid to call the company in question for details. After all, it's better to spend a few minutes on the phone clearing something up than leave a mistake on the report that could adversely affect your credit record. That phone call could wind up boosting your credit score - and it really only takes a few minutes of your time.

Making multiple payments throughout the month works on a credit factor called credit utilization, which has a powerful effect on scores. If you’re able to keep your utilization low instead of letting it build toward a payment due date, it should benefit your score right away. (You can track your credit utilization on each card and overall by viewing your credit profile with NerdWallet.) 

Authorized user trade lines refer to the card account where you are added as the authorized user. A “tradeline” is the account listed in a report, such as credit cards, auto loans, mortgages, and others. An “authorized user”, on the other hand, is the person who has been given access to an account as a user. This person acting as a user, however, is not necessarily accountable for the balances in the said account.

Get an unsecured or secured credit card if you have bad credit or a limited credit history. A new credit card reporting to the major credit bureaus can help build or rebuild credit history. Never max out new or old credit accounts. Make small monthly charges and pay them off on time or in full each month. Credit scores will increase as long as you keep the balance 10% or less of the available credit limit.
As trade lines are used by credit reporting agencies to develop an individual’s credit score, credit scores vary, with higher scores generally given to individuals with more-favorable trade line reporting. Factors considered when calculating the credit score include the number of trade lines, types of trade lines, lengths of open accounts, and payment history.

Superior Tradelines, LLC is the best company offering tradelines for sale. There are three main areas to judge tradeline companies. 1) Complaints 2) Reliability and 3) Financials. Regarding complaints, I would not recommend believing everything you read, but you should consider complaints you read online so long as they are believable based on common sense and you use your judgment (companies have used complaint boards to attack their competition). You should note, Superior Tradelines, LLC has never had a legitimate complaint. Superior Tradelines, LLC works with nearly 90 different companies, and wouldn’t have these affiliations if we were unreliable. Lastly, Superior Tradelines, LLC is bonded with a $10,000.00 surety bond, so your money is safer with us than any tradeline company on the internet.What you do NOT want is companies that pre-empt your ability to get a refund. Look at the terms we found on a competitor’s website:
However, when you do have open credit accounts, lenders and all 3 credit bureaus are able to determine how likely you are to repay the loan or line of credit you’re in need of. And typically, the more credit accounts you have in good standing, the higher your credit score will be. But if you’re one of the more than 43 million people who, according to research, could use a boost in their credit score, adding authorized user tradelines to your credit report is by far the best and fastest way to build credit and increase your credit score.
As far as the security freezes, I think you misunderstand the purpose. There is a questionable credit repair technique whereby consumers (not us) falsely claim “identify theft” in order to have accurate negative information removed from their credit report. In order to do this, they fill out a police report and then blast the credit bureaus with fraud alerts and security freezes. When you do this, it prevents authorized user tradelines from reporting. So, if they don’t report, what are you going to do? You’re going to blame us for a failure to deliver. So, instead of reacting and frustrating clients, we tell them, honestly, up-front, that they must remove security freezes and fraud alerts, otherwise we will either not work with them or they are voiding their refund policy. Again, if someone isn’t being up-front with you, they are suspect.
Either way, you should always remove any errors or outdated information from your credit report — regardless of the actual effect on your score — as soon as you discover them. A clean credit report can give you peace of mind the next time you apply for a loan; you’ll know that an inaccurate credit score isn’t holding you back from qualifying for a better interest rate, saving you time and money in the long run.
Rest assured ustradelines.com guarantees that our seasoned authorized user primary tradelines available for sale will post to your credit report. If for some reason an authorized user tradeline does not post to your credit report, we will refund your payment. All our tradelines are extremely reliable and we have never had a tradeline not post to a client’s credit report. We are able to achieve this distinction by testing our tradelines before we present it to the public.
bad idea they kill you in fees and unsecured does nothing for your credit . I found a jewery store on line that has you put %50 down and then make payment on the rest . and they report it . unsucured credit cards are bad news they don't help just make the banks alot of money . for example the person said transfer to a better card and leave the old one open . yeah if you want to pay a bunch of monthly and yearly fees .
That is something the other companies can't say. Our competitors earn more money the longer your have bad credit. Are you tired with everyone wanting a fee before you see even One result? A fee to audit your report, a fee to write a letter, a fee every month just for sending letters? We are so confident in using our distinct approach that we Charge ONLY for results with No Monthly fees, or Audit Fees and no Hidden Fees.
Even if the debt has passed the SOL in your state for suit (variable by state) and even the federal SOL for reporting (roughly 7 years from when the debt discharged) a collector may still pursue you for this money if you owe it. They will just never be able to collect it or report it if you don't allow them to, although they will certainly try and hope you are ignorant enough of the law that they get money from you.
"I have to admit i didn't really know much about my score and didn't look much into how it was affecting my daily life until i needed to make a huge purchase and could not. That's when a friend told me how easy it was to have you help her out. My scores has gone up with just a removal of tax liens! I'm sure you won't be disappointed, their disputing letters work!"
Traditionally, many parents have been advised to add their kids to their credit cards as authorized users to help establish credit early on to help them get a head start in life. Sadly, not everyone has that parent with good credit to do that. Additionally, a large scale study of 300,000 credit profiles concluded that approximately one-third of our entire nation has one or more authorized user tradelines in their credit file and those people are benefitting from those tradelines. This same study pointed out that minorities and the lower demographic sectors were less likely to have this benefit, which is further evidence of the inequality that exists in our financial system.

If you google tradelines, you’ll see many pages of results of people offering tradelines for sale. If you go to youtube, you’ll see everything from professional tradeline videos to people walking around an apartment complex in their pajamas “teaching” others how to increase their credit scores. If you go on craigslist (which you should never do), you’ll see packages from a no-name, no-company, no-phone-number “seller” asking you to irrevocably wire money in exchange for tradeline services.

Amount of Debt: Debt contributes 30% to a FICO Score’s calculation and can be easier to clean up than payment history, according to FICO’s website. (It weighs heavily on other credit scoring models, too.) That’s because if you currently have five maxed out credit cards, creditors worry whether you’ll be able to take on more credit and whether they’ll get paid back first or if your other creditors will.
You likely have dozens, if not hundreds, of credit scores. That's because a credit score is calculated by applying a mathematical algorithm to the information in one of your three credit reports, and there is no one uniform algorithm employed by all lenders or other financial companies to compute the scores. (Some credit scoring models are very common, like the FICO® Score* , which ranges from 300 to 850.)
To avoid a late or missing payment each month, enroll in automatic payment with your service provider. Some service providers, such as student loan lenders, provide a financial incentive when you enroll in auto pay. For example, you may be eligible for a 0.25% interest rate deduction with your student loan lender when you enroll in automatic payments. If you have a choice to enroll in auto pay with your bank or directly your service provider, choose your service provider to ensure that your payment arrives on time each month.
If you plan to get a mortgage, car loan or personal loan anytime in the future, it's essential to have a good credit score. Lenders use credit scores to decide whether to give you credit and the terms of that credit. Generally, a higher credit score will give you lower interest rates and more lending options. There are two major credit reporting bureaus in Canada: Equifax and TransUnion. If you have ever used credit, you will have a file with at least one of these agencies.

Your loan balances also affect your credit score in a similar way. The credit score calculation compares your loan current loan balance to the original loan amount. The closer your loan balances are to the original amount you borrowed, the more it hurts your credit score. Focus first on paying down credit card balances because they have more impact on your credit score.
The total amount charged to you will depend on how many items on your credit report(s) you choose to have us correct or have investigated. CRA charges you after an item is deleted/corrected. This payment covers all of the work fully and completely rendered as described in Paragraph 1, CRA's Scope of Services, and section titled "pay for results", "Optional credit services" and "Identity Protection" are due at the completion of each deletion/correction or Optional service completed.

Rapid rescoring is a practice commonly used by mortgage originators to help improve credit scores. Rapid rescoring is a two-step process that first involves correcting and updating information, and that information is then sent to the credit bureaus. When the rapid rescore is done, this information is added to the consumer’s credit file within days to update and improve their credit scores quickly.
