CONGRATULATIONS! Your subscription has successfully been added to your account and you're on your way to building your credit! Just a few pointers that should help you maximize your score increase:
Try to keep the number of your subscription down to a minimum. Credit bureaus give you positive points for not utilizing your credit limit to the max.
Always make your payments on time. Late payments have a negative impact on your credit score. To avoid missing a payment, make sure that you maintain a high enough balance in your bank account to cover your monthly charges for the subscription.
Quick shortcut: If you skip adding a subscription to your account but use your Grow Credit MasterCard to pay for one of your subscriptions directly from the provider, the subscription will automatically be added to your account.
