Benefits of Opening a New Credit Card

Credit Report - Get Good Credit

The whole concept of buy now, pay later has helped propel consumerism through every ceiling since the advent of the credit card. Although lines of credit are not exactly new, the credit card gives the consumer a convenient way to open a revolving credit account to spend on whatever they please. However, the rise of credit cards also means the rise of credit card debt, which leads to a downward spiral of financial instability and emotional distress.

That does not mean every new credit card is detrimental though, and with careful planning and responsibility, a new credit card can actually be a blessing upon someone’s credit score and history.

When planning for the future, it’s best to be aware of how credit may affect fiscal opportunities. A young adult fresh out of university may not be thinking about grabbing a mortgage right away, but they will most likely think about getting a new car within the next few years. Having a good credit history now means having financial options in the future.

A new line of credit with a trusted creditor will enable such opportunities, and there are a few benefits you can get along the way. Even if a person does not plan on using the credit card, it will help with his or her overall credit history and score over time.

The New Card Perks

Every financial institution out there from American Express to Wells Fargo will offer some perks and benefits to new cardholders. This can range from extra points for rewards to special discounts on interest rates. Here are some things to consider when looking to open a new card:

 

 

Raising Your Credit Score

One of the major reasons to open a new credit card, even if it’s not being used, is to help raise your overall credit score. When people sign up for any line of credit, either a credit card or loan, it gets reported to the three credit bureaus (Transunion, Experian, and Equifax). These accounts will stay on a person’s credit history and add or subtract to that person’s credit score.

What this means is that the card account will help raise a score the longer it stays on the report, the higher the limit, and how much debt is on the card; i.e., a high limit, old credit card with no debt will dramatically increase credit score. But that means people need to start opening credit cards earlier to benefit from that good score increase later.

Some credit card companies will even offer free credit history or monitoring services as well, so you can keep track of your credit score over time.

Be sure to shop around and find a credit card that lines up with your spending habits and benefits you the most. Even if you don’t use it a lot, the card will benefit you in the future.

  •   I found them on yelp, we are 30 days in the process, I need my Credit to be cleaned and get all the expired history, old inquires, closed accounts that not suppose to be there removed.

    they got me so far from 640 to 740 in 30 days just by mailing the bureaus, highly impressive.

  •   I called this place about 3 months when I decided it was time to fix my credit.   I spoke with Mia, she walked me thought the whole process in a 5 minute phone conversation.  It was simple enough so I decided to pull the trigger and signed up.  Its only been 3 months and already they have removed negative items and improved my score significantly.   I strongly recommend to give them a call as soon as possible, I waited too long and I wish I would have called sooner. I will update in a few months with the final results.

  •   I highly recommend Fix Your Credit Consulting. They helped remove my Bankruptcy and did it within 9 months. I'm very impressed. I was referred to them by a very reputable Credit Repair Attorney who works with them as well in between things, so they know their stuff and all of the legalities regarding fixing your credit.

    I worked with Mia Lopez who's the greatest and did a very good job of taking care of me and my friend tackling every issue or challenge that we faced. My credit score is now over 800 on all 3 of my credit reports. I referred my friend who had a 480 credit score and it's now over 700.

    They are one of the best if not the best credit repair companies out there. I will definitely work with them again if I need credit repair. Mia Lopez, you are the Greatest! Thank you so much for all of your help Mia. You deserve several raises. Job Well done! I'm one happy customer!

    God Bless!
