Thinking about how you’ll spend this year’s tax refund money?
What if I told you there was a way to use your tax refund to improve your credit score and still be able to take that mini-vacation you’ve been dreaming about? Or buy that new sofa and loveseat? It’s true. You can improve your credit score AND have what you want! And it’s actually pretty simple… when you get that lump sum of tax refund cash, instead of rushing to the store and spending all your cash, use the cash to open a secured credit card with First Progress Platinum Select MasterCard® Secured Credit Card . Once you’ve opened the account, simply make a security deposit (between $200 and $2,000, you pick the amount), and then use the credit card to buy whatever you originally planned to buy with your tax refund.
When the credit card bill comes in, make your payments on time, every time. In turn, First Progress Platinum Select MasterCard® Secured Credit Card will report your good payment history every month. Within a few months, your credit score will begin to reflect your new payment history, and you’ll have a “line of credit” on your credit report, as well. Pay the balance down to less than 33% and your credit score will go even higher as you prove your creditworthiness. It really is that easy!
Why not get started on your way to an improved credit score today?
