The Itinerary

Here are a few places you can visit (some are affiliate  links) to reconstruct or build credit for the first time.  To start, this link isn’t an affiliate, but you can get your credit reports free at annualcreditreport.com. 

 

Credit Builder Card

A secured card will lead you in the right direction.  It’s important to keep your card below 10%.  To add,  this option requires you to provide a cash security deposit, usually equal to your credit line.  We partnered with Credit Builder Card, and they report via all three credit bureaus, Equifax, Experian and TransUnion.  Just a reminder, we’re a subsidiary of Land Enterprises, LLC

Credit Builder Card

Self Inc.

An alternative to a secured card is Self Inc. They don’t require an upfront deposit. Additionally, Self reports your payments to the three major credit bureaus. You don’t have access to the funds, however, a late payment will negatively effect your credit.  So, select a monthly plan for your budget. 

Credit Strong

Credit Strong doesn’t have a security deposit.  More importantly, Credit Strong offers your FICO® score, and reports directly to all three bureaus.  Again, select a monthly plan for your budget.

Kikoff

Kikoff is venture-capital backed and funded by many of Silicon Valley’s most savvy investors — including social impact investors. Build credit for free. No credit card, no fees, no catch. Get started in seconds.

eCredable

Only with eCredable Lift® can you finally report your utility and phone payments to TransUnion® .

Rent Reporters

Rent Reporters  reports to Equifax and TransUnion, two of the credit bureaus, about a tenant’s rental payments.  

Smart Credit

Smart Credit offers an easy, innovative solution to read all three credit reports.  Although, you can get your reports free, some folks want  to utilize credit solution tools. We’ve partnered with them to offer you $1 Million Identity Fraud Insurance, quickly report unauthorized transactions, receive alerts when payments are due, easily plan your budget and spending, manage all of your online banking in one place. This a great credit monitoring option. I personally use it.

MyFico

myFICO is affilated with the company that invented the FICO credit score. This is another credit monitoring service available.
