5 Ways to start building your credit score

Rounding it up

  • Trying to build your credit score? Start by applying for a credit card geared towards those with little or no credit — and use it responsibly.

  • Alternatively, sign up for a secured credit card, which is designed to help establish or rebuild credit, as long as you put down a security deposit.

  • You should also choose a mobile phone plan that reports credit, and always pay the bills on time.

  • If you can, get a cosigner or enter a joint credit account so you can borrow someone else’s credit standing to build your own. Just make sure you trust this person!

  • Lastly, open a bank account and establish trust with the bank so they’re more inclined to give you a line of credit or credit card.
