Can I get approved for a credit card or loan? Look at your credit approval worthiness from a creditor's point of view to help you figure out if you qualify before you apply.

  1. Do you clearly have the ability to repay the loan. Do you have adequate income and steady employment.

  2. Do you have assets, such as savings and checking accounts, CDs, personal property, real estate, etc. If so, this shows creditors that you have financial stability.

  3. Do you have too many; or too much, liabilities like credit cards, installment loans, child support or alimony to pay.

  4. Do you meet obligations, such as making all payments on time, have a good credit report, etc.

  

Comparing various credit offers can not only be confusing, yet also quite time consuming. Referring to forums and advice boards are not much use either, as you cannot verify the truth of any statements as they could have been submitted by a representative of a credit company.

 

When considering credit cards, the pros and cons of each one can make your head spin. There are secured, unsecured, pre-paid and debit cards. Among those there are different issuers all with differing terms, fees, rates and rewards. Some cards are reserved for excellent credit applicants and some are designed to rebuild credit. Many people dedicate vast amounts of time comparing cards only to discover after they apply that they are not qualified and their application is rejected.

 

Auto loans may not have as many variables, yet there's a huge advantage of networking to find the absolute lowest interest rate as well as a great deal. Requesting multiple free quotes with no obligation can make the lender choice easier.

  

Personal loans are not all alike, as they can be secured or unsecured, with either short or long term repayment periods with monthly installments. Even the simpler payday advances. are comprised of lenders with varying interest rates and fees to be compared, in addition to finding one with a good customer service record. There are also some payday lenders who offer longer repayment periods than the typical two weeks. As for large personal loans, based upon the lender there are both secured and unsecured types.  High amount personal loans with long term repayments have their own interest rates and fees to consider.

  

Best lenderpreviews consumer credit offers in an effort to make comparing, choosing and getting an approved application easier for the consumer. In some instances, it can be highly beneficial to use a free matching service to find the credit you need and qualify for without unwanted hard credit pulls. In some instances, you can get pre-approved with only soft pulls, or with no credit report reviews whatsoever.

Good or Bad Credit Personal Loan Application

There are two main types of unsecured personal loans 1) A short term bad credit personal loan with no credit check typically limited to $1,000 and, 2) A long term personal loan with monthly installments and a large fund of up to $10,000 or even $25,000. The reasons for these differences is to enable lenders to offer loans to people of most all credit types. High risk personal loans offer lower amounts and higher interest rates to offset the lender's liability. Applicants who pose a very low risk of loan default can obtain larger loan amounts and lower interest rates.

Digital Gift Cards for Christmas Presents

The popularity of store gift cards is rising each year, as many people consider these as the most likely way to give a gift the person would actually use. As with most all purchases; however, some gift cards are better than others.

Comparing gift cards can be time consuming, particularly since stores will ramp up their card promotions during the holiday season. Some retailer ecards or digital gift cards can be used both online or in store, so be sure to which offers more flexibility.

Some retail stores; such as JCPenney's, offer e-gift cards which can be emailed within minutes to you or the recipient. They also offer shipping on a specific date and the buyer can customize the egift card with a message, a photo or even a video at no extra cost.

ECards offer another benefit over hard plastic gift cards... they can be accessed through mobile apps and email applications, whereas a regular gift card may easily be lost.

Certainly there's also a benefit for the retailers. In addition to making sales value equal to the card, some shoppers will actually end up spending beyond the value of the card thus earning more revenue for the store. That's why the aggressive gift card promotions begin quite early as the holidays approach. Some stores offer extra ways to obtain gift cards versus simply buying them outright. CVS; for example, has a program which their customers can earn a $10 gift card for places like Macy's or Darden restaurants if they spend $30 or more during a time period on specially marked items in the CVS circular. Kmart's offering members $15 off the next purchase when they buy $250 or more of Visa gift cards.

Gift Card Shopping Tips:

  • Check for any upfront fees for general purpose gift cards, including charge shipping fees.

  • Make sure protective stickers are intact and verify that nothing was scratched off to reveal a PIN number.

  • When giving a gift card, try to include a gift receipt to verify the card's purchase so the recipient can prove the card's validity should any problems arise.

Facts:

  • Per the Federal Trade Commission, money on a gift card cannot expire for at least five years from the date the card was bought, or from the last date extra money was added onto the card. If the expiration date listed on the card is earlier than these dates, the money can be transferred to a replacement card at no cost.

  • Be wary about buying gift cards from online auction sites. The FTC recommends avoiding buying gift cards totally on auction sites because the cards may be counterfeit or may have been obtained fraudulently.

  • If a restaurant or coffee house closes a store near the recipient, it may be hard to find another spot where the gift card can be used.

Use money to buy Christmas gifts, or charge to a credit card? If you plan on using cold hard cash for buying Christmas presents so you won't have debt and interest to pay, re-consider using a rewards credit card. It only makes sense, considering you have the cash to pay the charges in full. Why does it make sense? Because paying with cash does not give you any perks. Think of it this way: A rewards credit card which pays you 5% cash back, will end up giving you $175 of free money just for charging $3,500 of Christmas purchases to the card. And since you had the cash to pay in full, you won't have to worry about the free money being eaten up by interest. Just repay the balance within the grace period. Paying with cash doesn't offer cash back (unless the store offers a discount for cash purchases). Also, cash does not offer any additional perks such as an extended warranty on certain purchases, plus getting reversals for undelivered purchases, and protection by limiting liability to only $50.00. Another benefit to using a credit card, is that you can leave your hard-earned cash in your bank savings account (earning interest), instead of carrying the wad around town with you and risk being robbed or having your purse/wallet stolen. Of course, a credit card statement provides a back-up receipt should the retailer receipt become lost. Finally, consider the on-going benefits: If you spend $3,500 on Christmas gifts, how much money do you spend throughout the year? With a cash back credit card, you can continue earning money - not merely during the holidays.

Charity credit cards for Christmas gift giving - By charging purchases to a card which donates to charity, you give twice with each gift. You also get to enjoy that holiday warmth of sharing when you charge on a card which aids a nonprofit organization. Examples of charity cards are: Bank of America's American Heart Association, and Chase's World Wildlife Fund cards. Additionally, there are some charity cards which allow you to choose the organization to send the donation to. For example, Target's REDcard Take Charge of Education program can help your child's school, or it will split the money between up to five Israel-related charities through the HAS Advantage Visa Platinum card. Typically the participating issuer awards from 0.3 percent to 1 percent of each transaction to a charity. Although that may seem quite a small donation, it adds up with those from other users. If you want to give more, get a card which offers an initial donation of $10 to $50 when each card is activated like the Chase, OneCause, and CardPartner. If you don't like using credit cards, you can still join the giving-spirit by using a debit card. Some banks offer programs that link check and debit cards to charity. To give more, choose a rewards credit card that offers a higher cash-back bonus. The American Express Blue Cash and Discover More cards, and instead of cashing the rewards, donate the cash back check to charity. Not only will the charity receive a larger donation than they would through most cause cards, but the tax deduction belongs to you instead of the credit card company.

Christmas Credit Card Application Advice: Don't apply for just any credit card for Christmas shopping. There's much more to charging presents than simply deferring payment or establishing a monthly installment for eventual payoff. In addition to meeting qualification requirements, you also want to apply for a credit card which will bestow a total loan amount that is acceptable without being much more than you actually need. That's because having too large of a credit limit can encourage debt, and a card with a low limit may not offer a big enough credit line for making all your gift purchases. Any why not get the most out of the rewards as well? If; for example, you don't fly often and you'll mostly use the card for buying Christmas gifts, avoid sky miles credit cards and instead get one which offers cash back for the kinds of purchases you will make. Again, don't bother to submit a credit card application for a card which rewards cash back for purchases at stores you don't frequent. If you're unsure of the interest rate and credit limit you qualify for, consider a credit card finder service which can assist you.



Debt

 

People with poor credit may keep damaging scores just by getting deeper into debt or keeping debts. Those who want to find an answer to financial problems often seek a consolidation service. It is best to search one that has experience helping those with credit challenges. Many of these services, do require clients to have a certain credit score to qualify, yet there are some requirements to be eligible.

  

Some consolidation companies require borrowers to have a minimum level of unsecured debt, no existing enrollments in debt consolidation programs, and be willing to cancel credit cards included in the consolidation. People with excessively high levels of debt may not be able to qualify.

  

Having debts with high interest typically leads to credit problems, which can prevent some consumers from being able to consolidate. People with excellent credit, usually are able to get approved for a home equity, debt consolidation loan. When there are blemishes on credit records from the burdens of overwhelming debts, some debt relief programs may not be an option. 

  

However, there are many debt consolidation services who can assist those with bad credit and credit challenges. Lenders define "bad credit" in various ways, but a score of 620 or below is usually classified as poor. For scores like this, it can be next to impossible to get loans to pay bills from traditional banks and credit unions. Applicants are considered a sub-prime borrower, and few lenders are willing to assume that risk.

 

Consumers with poor credit do have some options to put a stop to constantly damaging credit scores. There are choices like credit counseling, consolidation loans, debt settlement, and the last solution could be bankruptcy. Finding the right service for individual debt needs can take some thought and research, which can be started by using online sources. Using online resources provides privacy and the ability to compare services. It can be one of the quickest ways to get a quote or check out a company to see if they are reputable.

 

Having bad credit usually does not disqualify people from receiving debt consolidation services. However, some consolidation companies may require that payments are no more than three months behind. For people who have more serious delinquencies, debt settlement or debt negotiation may be an option to consider. 

 

Some lenders offer debt consolidation loans with less eligibility criteria. Many debtors with bad credit can use these loans and pay off high-interest debts. These loans may have high interest rates, yet most loans for bad credit people do anyway. There are hundreds of choices for using professional services, the important thing is to start early, before debts and late fees are out of hand. Quotes are usually free, and it may be a step in the right direction to get one. Debt relief can help ease some of the stresses of life and may eliminate some sleepless nights.
