Why not use your tax refund to get that fresh start on your credit this year?
Instead of spending your annual tax refund windfall on something that you probably don’t really need, why not use it to get a fresh start on your credit? (You can do both!) Maybe you have less than perfect credit, or no credit history at all, but you want to improve your score… perhaps in the near future, you want to buy a car, get a new apartment, or even buy your first house? With the right credit score, you can save hundreds, even thousands of dollars in interest, and it all starts when you start working on your credit report and improving your credit score.
How can your tax refund help you to improve your credit score?
Using your tax refund to improve your credit score is easy! Simply apply for a First Progress Platinum Elite MasterCard® Secured Credit Card and use a portion of your tax refund to make the required security deposit on the credit card (between $200 and $2,000 – you choose the amount), and then, simply use your new credit card to buy whatever it was you were going to buy with your tax refund. Then, make timely, regular payments on the credit card. In turn, First Progress will report your good payment history to all three credit bureaus each and every month – if you’re like most people, you’ll start to see results in just a few months!
What could be better? You still get to buy that new television, take that little vacation, or whatever else it was you wanted, and you can use your tax refund to get that fresh start on your credit that you’ve been hoping for!
