Subject: Secured vs. unsecured and credit repair
 
Posted on Thu Jan 27, 2011 2:02 am  

I have been steadily working on my personal credit score and history for the past 2-3 years. Regarding some of the other posts about getting credit repair help, or seeking out companies, I have to say, the best credit repair company is Me, Myself & I.

I brought my score back up from a 535 (atrocious) to a current score of 696. The long and short of it is this. There's no magic bullet, but you have to be willing to invest a little time (and a few dollars) into it to get the results back. Persistence!

While I had to do some school loan fixes and things, I focused my attention over the past year or so to my bank accounts/cards. My bank is BOA. Back in '06, they charged me $300 for a $500 secured card. I got my deposit back in '08 and to this day, they will not raise the limit. But, six months ago, I walked into a Credit Union and got a $4000 credit card unsecured, just like that.

Thank God for credit unions, much more flexible! Once I did that, I also read about how you need to keep extending new positive lines of credit, keep them in regular use, paid on time, but carry under 25% of your availability charged at any one time.

So in addition to the CU card, I went out and found an online store called Enchanted Attire (www.enchantedattire.com), where I was able to take out a $5000 credit line, do some shopping every so often and pay it right back off. It costs a little, but it ran me less than that BOA card and I am getting 10 times as much credit.

I'm looking for other credit now online. In fact, they seem to come easier as more and more open. All in all, I'm up mainly because I got that $5000 line from EA. It's taken some time, but I'm getting it done myself.

Bottom line...there are options. If your bank won't help you, or if it is one of those mega banks, go find a local community or credit union. They're more flexible. My case is proof. Once you do get those new bits of credit, don't go wild! Keep all paid on time and let the positive history of those accounts take hold. As the other negatives fade over time, you'll really start moving.

What would certainly be great with this discussion board is if perhaps you were able to sign up to threads that you generate; Is this possible?

On 'secured' CC's, you (the consumer) put money on it every month. As you use your OWN credit and make monthy payments n it or pa it off every month, the the CC company shpould report your payment history to the CRA's. Remember..a 'non-secured' CC you already have the credit card. On a 'secured' CC, you hae to build your own credit. However much mney you may have on the CC is your credit limit (on a 'secured' card).

I would like to add, as well, ......I was looking Secured CC's up on the web for a friend of mine. I'm surprised to find there are actually a few Secured CC's that don't have in their 'fine print' that they report to the CRA's. I thought they ALL did.
