As you’re starting out on your own, it’s important to establish good credit. Credit is what can determine the rate you get on a loan, the limit on your credit card and may even influence your ability to get a job.
Here are some ways to maintain a good credit score:
Pay your bills on time.
Try to pay your credit cards in full, but pay at least the minimum monthly payment.
Never exceed your credit limit.
Check your credit report annually for any discrepancies.
When moving, update your billing address for all bills.
To help you establish credit, Unison offers two low-rate Visa®
Platinum credit cards.
Platinum credit card has a fixed low rate of 9.99% APR. You will pay less interest on balances and therefore have lower monthly payments than that of higher-interest cards offered by other companies.
