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....

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

 

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

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.)
