Need help building your credit history?

Tips to establish Good Credit history

  • Open a checking account or savings account. Checking and savings accounts do not create your credit file, but their existence will indicate that you have money and show something about how you manage it.
  • Apply for a department store credit card or a major credit card. The most common major credit cards are: Visa, Mastercard and American Express.
  • If you don't qualify for credit on the basis of your own credit file, ask someone with an established credit history (like a parent) to co-sign your application. A co-signer is someone who promises to pay your debts if you don't.
