My husband had bad credit when we got married his ex wife helped that one out so first I pulled his credit report and anything older than 7 years that is negative except bankrupcty's you can have taken off I did then I had him apply for a credit card that takes people with bad credit and always made the payments on time after he showed a payment history on that we got a vechicle loan and was never late on that. Just making payments on time will raise your credit score.

Thank you a lot for this information, how can you find these credit cards that don't ask for money up front?

That does sound like a great idea and i have done that before and it is on there as positive credit.
