You were sure that you would get the loan that you applied for, but to your surprise, a bank turned down the loan. The bank explained to you that you have bad credit and they consider your subprime. What, you may ask is subprime? Sub prime means that you have bad credit and score of less than 620 on the FICO scale/rating. This, however, doesn’t mean that you can’t apply for loans. Some many lenders and companies specialize in lending to sub primers.
Ways to get rid of your bad credit in two months:
You can start by checking your credit report. Many times the information that may have been entered is incorrect. If you do find the errors, write to the credit company stating the errors and the corrective action for it.
Ask for your credit scores from Trans Union, Experian, and Equifax. Thus you can know your credit score and devise measure to make it better.
Pay off your loans; even payday loans can become big if you add them up. Control the urge to borrow small, even if it is $20. Just imagine $20 a day means $600 a month.
Use cash to make your purchases; this way, you can definitely lessen your credit card debts. Use only one credit card. Too many credit cards mean that you have to also pay annual fees on them. Don’t take cash against your credit cards. The rate of interest on cash loans is very steep. In fact, make a payment in full for your credit card purchases. In this way, you wouldn’t have to pay for interest on interest.
Make a budget for all your expenses and then weigh it against your income. If your expenses are more than your income, cut back on the expenses. Otherwise, you will be in debt. This will then affect your credit rating. In return, you will have bad credit.
Following these simple techniques, you will be able to get rid of your bad credit in two months.
