You checked your credit report, but feel like your credit score is stuck in a rut. Good news! Your credit score isn’t set in stone.

The Self credit app is a way to build credit history while building savings*. Build credit with Self, even with a low credit score (or no credit score)!

Start with the Self Credit Builder Account.

Continue with the Self Visa® Credit Card, a secured credit card designed for building credit.

Self does not do a “hard pull” credit check when you create an account. In fact, no credit score is required!

Have an active Credit Builder Account in good standing, make at least 3 Credit Builder Account monthly payments in full and have $100 or more in savings progress and you could get access to a secured credit card.

Whether your goal is to get a credit card, a loan to buy a car or house, a good FICO® score can help. According to FICO, building payment history has the biggest impact on your credit score*****.

Over 1 million people have used Self’s Credit Builder Account to build credit and save more than $500 million.

“Because of Self I’ve been able to buy a house, refinance my car, and my credit went from a 492 when I started to a 735 in less than 18 months.” - customer Christian O.

Failure to make monthly minimum payments by the payment due date each month may result in delinquent payment reporting to credit bureaus which may negatively impact your credit score. This product will not remove negative credit history from your credit report.

**Credit scores will only be available to customers who our third-party vendor is able to validate.
