What is a credit-builder credit card?
A credit-builder credit card helps you build or improve your credit score as you make purchases and then make repayments on time.
How a credit-builder credit card can help you
Use your card to spend carefully
Build your credit score by using your card, but make sure you don't use all of the credit available to you every month.
Pay back as much as you can
You'll pay less interest if you pay back the total every month. If you can't, it still makes sense to pay more than the minimum - as this reduces the interest you'll pay.
Repay on time
If you stay up to date with your repayments, your credit score is likely to improve. A Direct Debit can help make sure your repayments are always on time.
