200% Importance - 100% FREE Knowledge!
Is this you?
  • You’ve been around the debt block already and have no desire to repeat the journey
  • You’ve seen the damage credit card debt can do to a person’s financial life and you go out of your way to avoid the same fate
  • You prefer to pay cash and never owe anyone money
  • You value privacy and prefer to stay off the mainstream financial grid
  • Your credit is poor or nonexistent and you don’t qualify for a credit card
If the answer is yes, you might be one of the hundreds of thousands of American consumers who don’t have (or even want) a credit card. Whether you’ve been locked out of the credit card market because of bad financial experiences or you simply don’t believe in credit cards because of the risk they can pose to your financial health, credit cards are not the be-all, end-all credit building tool. It is possible to build credit in other ways.
1. Ask companies you do business with to report
Not all companies report to the credit bureaus, but that doesn’t mean they can’t or won’t. If your utility company reports delinquencies (and they all do), ask if they can report on-time payments, too.
2. Get a loan
Installment loans are a great way to show responsible payment behavior and debt management. It may seem counter-intuitive to seek a loan if you don’t have credit (or your credit is bad), but some banks and credit unions offer loans specially designed to help borrowers build credit. The credit builder loan at Digital Federal Credit Union is a great example. Loan payments are deposited into a savings account that the borrower cannot access until the entire loan is repaid. The loan essentially functions as a forced savings plan. Payments are reported to the credit bureaus while the balance builds. After successful repayment, the borrower is eligible for a discount on a future consumer loan.
Another strategy is to save the money first and use it (in a savings account or certificate of deposit) as collateral to take a loan for something you need instead of paying cash for it. Secured loans are usually available to borrowers with bad credit or no credit.
Finally, peer-to-peer loans often have broader lending guidelines than banks, and may be worth a try for consumers with lower credit scores. Borrowers can be approved for loans with a score as low as 640..
  1. Set up a credit line with a vendor who reports
Are you a do-it-yourselfer? Many home improvement stores offer billing accounts and report to the credit bureaus. You may be eligible for this type of account if you are self-employed, especially if you have a reseller’s license where you live.
  1. Take out a federally guaranteed student loan
If you’re a student, apply for a student loan. This type of loan generally doesn’t depend on the borrower’s credit rating so long as other eligibility requirements are met, and it’s reported to the credit bureaus. Just be sure to take a federal loan, not a private one. Government loans offer a wide variety of options for borrowers who struggle with repayment now or in the future, including deferment, forbearance and income-based repayment, making them much friendlier to borrowers in general.
  1. Report your rent
Some landlords report rent payments to the credit bureaus, and if yours doesn’t, you can report it yourself (via, or Earlier this year, FICO began assigning “alternative” credit scores to previously unscorable consumers, based on their history with rent, utilities, cell phone accounts and other data (provided by Equifax and LexisNexis) not typically included in a score. When FICO implemented this program, several million people went from bad/no credit score to a fair credit score. Although rent payments don’t influence your traditional FICO score, they are factored into your VantageScore. Currently only Experian shows rent payments on consumer credit reports.

Is a credit sweep the same thing as claiming identity theft?

Is a credit sweep the same thing as claiming identity theft? No, it's not. Most consumers have the wrong idea about what a credit sweep is and believe the 2 are the same but I'm here to clear this up for you! Identity theft: This is where you claim that all (or a few) items are resulting from identity theft and you attempt to get them blocked using section 605B of the FCRA within 4 business days. You must use an official police report and affidavit. Here's the DL on this: it doesn't work. Why? Because millions of consumers used this illegally even thought the debts actually belonged to them and now, even if you ARE a victim, it's almost impossible to get it done in 4 business days. A few months? Sure, if you have all the required documentation, dispute with the creditors as well and have supporting documentation. IF this method is used (either by the consumer or a credit repair company - with or without the consumer's knowledge), the items w
