Does a secured card hurt your credit

Answered By: Cole Jones Date: created: Oct 10 2020

Making payments in full and on time will help your credit score. If you’re wondering whether having an unsecured card compared with a secured card affects your score, it does not. A card may not even show up as secured on your history. That’s how a secured credit card can affect your credit score in a great way.

Can I raise my credit score 100 points in a year

Answered By: Raymond Davis Date: created: Nov 25 2020

Every credit history is unique, so it’s impossible to say exactly what you need to do in order to increase your personal credit score by 100 points, exactly how long it will take, or even if it is possible. The two most important factors in credit scoring are your payment history and your credit utilization.

Will having 2 secured credit cards help more

Answered By: Alex Taylor Date: created: Feb 02 2021

Having more cards can increase your total available limit, reducing your balance-to-limit ratio, which can positively affect credit scores. However, keeping low balances on just a few credit cards can result in very good credit scores. You can have as good a credit score with two cards as you can with five or 10.

Can you get a Walmart credit card with bad credit

Answered By: Clifford Bennett Date: created: Nov 29 2020

You probably can’t get a Walmart credit card with bad credit because even the Walmart-only version requires fair credit for approval. That means your chances are best if your credit score is 640+. But it’s very unlikely, and not worth the additional credit score damage applying will do.
