I can give newbies suggestions now lol
I started out just below 500 and am now at 600
Sure, first premier and crown jewelers suck
But they have been my saving grace....
Kay jewelers told me that I can not be approved until crown jewelers reports longer
My advise to people with poor credit trying to build history: get crown jewelers, after about 6 months get kay jewlers....

I heard Union Workers Credit is similar. Have you tried Fingerhut?
Union Workers Credit is a rip off, please do not go there.
they charge you crazy fees and are over priced.
Also i do not think they report to any credit Bureaus
Do a search on here and you will see others who have posted about them
ETA: had to add the thread

Venue is dressed-up ghetto.
Sorry, I could not help it. I know nothing about venue. I am just making that up.
As cheesy as "Fingahut" is, I have to tell y'all that I bought a TV and a Yamaha keyboard (don't ask me if I finished paying for them) in 2000 and they are still going strong. TV is on right now and the keyboard just got a workout with the kids jamming an hour ago. My husband, the musician, could not believe how many functions came with that keyboard and the price I paid (really, if I stuck F.H. with anything in my BK, and I can't remember if I did, it was a couple of dollars at most so don't cry for them.)
