Hey everyone! I've been lurking for a while, but this is my first forum thread post! I'm a college student in SoCal looking for my first credit card. Building credit is a pretty new concept to me, but from my understanding its better to start now than never. I've been looking online about some newer cards and also more established cards that are friendly to new users like TomoCredit, Petal, and Capital One. I know Capital one is used by a lot of students. Does anyone have experience with these companies? Thank you so much!
Hello all!! I'm a first time user, so I'd first like to say thank you in advance for any help any of you can provide me with!! I have recently pulled my credit report for the first time and have found 5 collection accounts that are all attributed to medical bills, The highest one is $322 and the lowest is $25, there were a lot of bills coming in at that time, and I think these ones just got lost in the shuffle. I have the financial ability to pay them all in full so I thought the Pay for Delete option would be best for me. One of my main questions is, 3 of the collections listed are with the same collection agency, GLA Collections, would it be beneficial for me to combine all 3 accounts in my pay for delete letter or should I send a separate letter for each account number? Or, is there a different route I should use? Another question I have, besides those collection accounts all of my other accounts (Car payment and credit card) are all paid as agreed with no negative feedback since they were opened in 2011. If the Collection agencies refuse to accept my pay for delete offer, I feel I should go on and pay the debts, meaning they will show as paid on my credit report, but how would a mortgage lender see those. Would the fact that I have good marks on my revolving credit and installment trump the fact that I had medical bills that were sent to collections but have been paid? Thank you again for any feedback you can provide me with!!!
