Re: Subprime cards

You need to get the utilization down below 10% on those cards, then wait a month before you do anything.

Too many INQs & low AAoA so I'm off to tend the Garden.     Age:23

Re: Subprime cards

Ok, I see you're using FP, and you made reference to having a Household bank card too at some point. Baddies on your CR's?

The better option is to get away from the fee sucking cards, get a decent deposit ready, and go for a secured card.

Re: Subprime cards

Never to be confirmed/denied (thanks llecs), some of the bigger players frown on seeing First Premie's reporting on someone's reports.

Re: Subprime cards

Just make sure it's before statement date. Won't matter if you pay now and charge them back up before the statement cuts and still reports.
