Restore My Credit
A lot of people assume that after repairing bad credit, the way to rebuild your credit is to stop using credit and pay cash for everything. But the truth is, acquiring new credit and paying it off promptly is the fastest way to rebuild your credit.
Apply for a credit card, and use it ONLY for the purpose of rebuilding your credit. If you don’t qualify for a regular credit card, you can apply for a secured credit card. The interest rates may not be as high as you might think, but you’re going to pay off the balance on time to avoid all interest charges. Here’s how to do it:
You can also apply for a store credit card. There are several advantages to doing this – you usually get a discount on your first purchase, and you can pay off the balance immediately. So, you could buy a pair of jeans, open a store credit card, get a discount, then use cash or a debit card to pay off the balance right there at the register. Then you don’t have to even worry about paying the bill later.
