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.
Payment terms and status, which dictates and reveals how you pay your bills. Best case is “pays as agreed” (on-time), with late payments starting at 30 days and continuing to 60, 90, 120, 150 and 180. After that six month mark, most creditors will close the account as a charge-off, meaning they assume you’re never going to pay. (With some types of debt, like mortgage loans, that write-off timeline might kick in sooner, after the 120-day mark.) Altogether this reveals your payment history, which can appear on your credit report for up to seven years.

By law, the 2 major credit bureaus (Equifax and TransUnion) are required to each provide you with one copy of your credit report per year (upon request). Companies like Borrowell (Canada) or Credit Sesame (U.S.) also provide it for free on a monthly basis along with your credit score. Checking your own credit score (and report) does not impact it as it is deemed a “soft inquiry.” 

If you want comprehensive credit repair services, or tradelines for small business, we can recommend someone – but we only do consumer tradelines. We are a small family business – unlike the many resellers you will find when you research tradelines, ALL of the cards we use are owned by us. So you will get prompt service by someone who cares about the product we offer. And because there’s no commissions, we can offer you the same products for less. Drop us an email or click the link at the top, to find out what’s available right now – we have lines starting from $399 with multi-card discounts. We guarantee that you make it on your chosen credit lines – or your money back. We also leave you on your lines for at least 90 days – most companies will move you on and off in one month. We offer tradelines from Bank of America, Citi, Capital One, Discover, Barclay, US Bank, Chase, USAA and more, ranging in age up to 30 years, and credit limits up to $28k.


Credit age (how long your accounts have been open) has a moderate impact on your credit score. Lenders generally want to see that you have at least three open and available sources of credit, where you are current on your payments. The longer you’ve had your account open in good standing the better. Keeping accounts open maintains your credit age and, as mentioned, helps with credit utilization.

“An account that’s paid in full is a good thing; however, closing an account isn’t something that consumers should automatically do in the hopes that it will positively impact their credit score,” says Nancy Bistritz-Balkan, vice president of communications and consumer education at Equifax. “Having an account with a long history and solid track record of paying bills on time, every time, are the types of responsible habits lenders and creditors look for.”


Removing negative accounts: e.g. medical collection, utility collection, repossession, foreclosures, a public record (like judgement), bankruptcy, late payments on revolving or installment accounts is simply cleaning up the mess, but in order to create a positive power curve to boost the credit score, you have to have positive credit references which are revolving tradelines. With adding tradelines, our guarantee is that we will post lines within 60 days, but the average time is two weeks, and usually the longest wait time is 30 days.
They may be willing to waive some of the late penalties or spread the past due balance over few payments. Let them know you're anxious to avoid charge-off, but need some help. Your creditor may even be willing to re-age your account to show your payments as current rather than delinquent, but you'll have to actually talk to your creditors to negotiate.
I would disagree with this option, as a credit analyst its my job to investigate credit and determine customer eligibility for loans etc... typically creditors do not look for a card thats been used 1 time for $15 then never used again this kind of credit is disregarded and or not taken seriously. When we look to approve a consumer we look at several factors and what that makes a large impact is how they make their payments, the balance currently on all their revolving and installments and the history of payments. if you only charge a tiny amount and pay it off its going to show no history and therefore not be a heavy influence. in fact if you can handle it it is good to sometimes charge the card near max but then pay it off super fast. yes this well temp drop score however. it will show creditor your applying for that you can handle larger amounts and that you pay them down good and fast. 
The credit scoring model awards more points when your credit card balances are low. If a credit card limit is $1000 the balance should be no more than $100. Keep as much space as possible between your account balance and credit limit. To make sure the decreased balance gets reported to the credit bureaus, find out when your creditors report to the bureaus. Most creditors report your payment history and current balance on the date your statement is created which is typically the last day of your billing cycle.
All very good information.... but I am not sure that getting a credit offer with a pre approval doesn't recheck your credit when you actually apply. Every credit card I signed up for did a credit inquiry.... however.... I really like your advice about adding your daughter to your accounts... this doesnt put a hard inquiry on her credit report and it makes it look like the card is hers. She doesn't even have to use it but it will make her score jump. Great advice

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. 

You may, on your own, notify a credit bureau in writing that you dispute the accuracy of information in your credit file. The credit bureau must then reinvestigate and modify or remove inaccurate or incomplete information. The credit bureau may not charge any fee for this service. Any pertinent information and copies of all documents you have concerning an error should be given to the credit bureau.
hi I read over the mock agreement and it seems to detailed as if you guys will be privy to all my personal information I am not allowed to have alerts or security features on my credit or the services will be deemed complete so this leaves me wondering why do you need all my personal info in such detail if I’m only purchasing tradelines? excuse me but this sounds very suspect…..

If you've already used up your free credit reports for this year, you can order your credit reports directly from the credit bureaus for a fee. The bureaus all offer a three-in-one credit report that lists all three of your credit reports side-by-side. The three-in-one credit report costs more than a single credit report, but less than the combined price of purchasing your three individual credit reports.
Just as with any service, the cost of your credit repair will vary based on how much work it will take to solve your problem and the solution you choose. A full-service option, such as a credit repair agency, may cost more because they take care of everything for you while doing it yourself costs less because you’re not paying for professional assistance.

Hi I’m interested in raising my credit score which has recently gone from 496 August 23 to 574 September 28th with the purchase of a secured visa with a $200 limit, my credit age is only 2 months with a 100% payment history. Still, only 2 months young. I had 2 negative things on my report of which I’ve gotten removed and now I have 1 dismissed chpt 13, not to be confused with a discharged chpt 13. This means I filed and then didn’t go through with it so I’m trying to get it off my credit. Other than that I have nothing else on my credit except 2 hard inquiries. Without having seen my credit report, what is your best guestimate that a tradelines will work for me?
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 .

Take out a secured credit card from a credit union. With Most banks you will need 300-500 to start. After you receive your card charge $15-$20 at the most. When you get the bill in, pay it by or before the due. DO NOT PAY LATE!! Do this a few times and your credit should jump about 20-30 points. When your credit goes up to where you want, you can take out the money from your secure credit card. DO NOT CANCEL YOUR ACCOUNT OR YOU WILL LOSE YOUR CREDIT. (SHRED THE CARD INSTEAD) Hope this helps. God Bless  

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.

Upon my search for help to repair my credit I came across a few empty promises. I then found DEMONINVADER. He was straight forward with what our approach and goals were from the begining without wasting any time. He was always polite, very informative and always returned my calls/emails on time. He helped me understand by translating what I had trouble with, understanding and working up game plans towards my goal of better credit. Now at the end of his services, I'm extremely grateful and satisfy with the services rendered by DEMONINVADER. I would highly recommend DEMONINVADER for your credit repair needs.

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.
Thank you for this. I have been building my credit back after Economy struggles and long term illness.  Today, I'm in a better position physically and materially. Most of my credit issues are resolved. However, I'm curious as to your next step once you resolved the medical bill situation.  Did you pay the creditor and subsequently write a letter to the credit bureaus? I have a $284 medical bill I can't recall not paying, but I would like to resolve the matter this year.

Enter Your Reply I would like to point out that this is inaccurate as to not having a credit inquiry on a pre-approved card offer. That is not true they have always always ran a credit even on all pre-approval ones that I have ever dealt with. I was given an invite recently for a relatively new company and I decided to try it and they pulled a hard inquiry on my credit anyway not to mention that they couldn't finish the process something happened on their website and so nothing ever went further and then I received another pre-approval in the mail after that I'm afraid to try again cuz it's going to ding my credit more

The Federal Trade Commission found that 5% of consumers had one or more errors on their credit report. There are three major credit bureaus: Experian, Equifax and TransUnion. Each credit bureau collects information on your credit history and develops a credit score that lenders use to assess your riskiness as a borrower. Under federal law, you are entitled to view your credit report every 12 months from each credit bureau. Since each credit bureau may have different information about your credit history, your credit score may vary across the three lenders.
Focus on correcting the big mistakes on our credit report. If someone else's bankruptcy, collections, or charge-offs are showing up on your report, you'll likely benefit quickly by having those removed. However, if an account that you closed is still being reported as open, it's probably best to leave it that way. Having an account reported as "closed" on your file can in no way help your credit score and could actually hurt it.

Creditors make those calculations based on the data included in your credit reports, which are issued primarily by the three major credit reporting companies - TransUnion, Equifax and Experian. By and large, the entire credit score range stands between 350 and 800. The higher your credit score, the easier it is to get loans and credit. The lower your credit score, the harder it is to get approval for loans and credit, and the more you'll pay (in interest) for the credit you do earn from a creditor or lender.
Even if the bank underwriter chose to violate the law and ignore the existence of the AU tradelines in your credit report, it is nearly impossible for them to physically change your credit score. Obviously, nearly every loan approval is based on the credit score. Therefore, you should still be in a good position to receive a loan approval. Just be sure the rest of your application meets the underwriting requirements (income, job history, etc).

Step 2: Tell the creditor or other information provider, in writing, that you dispute an item. Include copies (NOT originals) of documents that support your position. Many providers specify an address for disputes. If the provider reports the item to a consumer reporting company, it must include a notice of your dispute. And if the information is found to be inaccurate, the provider may not report it again.
