How to Add Primary Tradelines to Your Credit Report

A primary tradeline is an account that shows on your credit report as your account, versus being an authorized user’s account. It’s important to have a good mix of accounts on your credit report, including primary tradelines AND authorized user tradelines.

Ideally, you want to have at LEAST 3 OPEN, POSITIVE accounts on your credit report, between primary tradelines and seasoned authorized user tradelines.

Primary tradelines go through a much more rigorous validation process than authorized user tradelines. There are several legitimate companies that exist for the sole purpose of reporting primary tradelines to your credit report.

Below are my favorite legitimate primary tradeline options that will help BOOST YOUR CREDIT SCORE and build a solid foundation for your credit report.

I recommend to try and get at least the TOP 4 LISTED BELOW ASAP.

1. Online Jewelry Club

  • This is an oldie, but a goodie. Join their jewelry club, purchase about $150 or so worth of jewelry and they will report a $5,000 primary tradeline on your credit report. Ensure you make the payments because they are reporting that also.
  • Click >>here<< for more info.

2. Credit Card Builder

  • This is a secured credit card in your name used for the sole purpose of helping you build your credit score.
  • No minimum credit score required so there is 100% hope for you!
  • The credit limit is low, but you have to start somewhere in order to establish and build your credit back up.
  • More information about how this works —->>here<<

3. Self Lender

  • This one is way different from the others, but still a great choice especially for account diversification.
    No minimum credit score required so there is 100% hope for you!
  • This is a CD (certificate of deposit) that reports to ALL THREE CREDIT BUREAUS, and you get the money back after it matures in one year.
  • There is a small origination fee (around $9 – $12) then small monthly payments after that based on how much you want the CD to report as.
  • Each payment is reported to the 3 credit bureaus (don’t screw this up!). At the end of the term, you’ve paid off the loan and you can get the money back + interest – hence saving money while boosting your credit.
  • NEW AND PAID TRADELINE ALERT = BIG CREDIT SCORE INCREASE. Get started HERE.
  • More info on how it works —–>>here<<

4. Rent Reporters

  • They are currently reporting to Transunion AND Equifax; they will also report your rent as a tradeline to your credit report.
  • They can backdate your rental history for up to 24 months.
  • Use this code during signup to get $10 off! ll-rixcd
  • They will verify all information, including ownership of the property to ensure you have a good track record with your landlord first.
  • More info on how it works—–>>here<<

5. Rental Kharma

  •  This company will report your rent to Transunion, which will boost your credit score because adding positive tradelines is super powerful.
  • Their website is https://rentalkharma.com/
  • They are currently reporting to Transunion only which is very common for rental reporting agencies.
  • They can backdate your rental history for 24 months.
  • Check out their FAQ’s —–>>here<<
  • They will verify all information, including ownership of the property to ensure you have a good track record with your landlord first.

6. Oxpublishing.com

  • This is a $2,500 secured line credit reported in your name (no credit card is mailed to you).
  • Typically this reports to Equifax only, this may change over time though.
  • There is a minimum purchase required in their online store, typically $180 purchase that you would financially so as 2018, it’s about $30 to get started, then finance the rest in monthly payments. [Note at time of this writing, this was the price.]
  • More information on how this works —–>>here<<

7. Hutton Chase

  • This is a secured credit line in your name for $1,500 that can be used only at their website.
  • Product purchase of $180 is required however only a $30 activation fee is due at time of purchase [Note at time of this writing, this was the price.]
  • More info on how this works —->>here<<

8. Wells Fargo Secured Credit Card

  • This is another great option for building, and rebuilding credit.
  • If you have ever defaulted or had a late payment with this bank, do NOT select this option as they will run your credit and likely deny you.
  • More information on how this works —->>here<<

9. Experian Boost Coming Soon

Experian will report *utility bills* to your Experian credit report, in exchange for your bank account information (that is where they will verify your payment history each month). News reports are stating this will be done for free, however, I can’t seem to find this on their website so we shall see! How do you feel about providing your bank information in exchange to report your phone/electric bills?

 

You can sign up for early access >>here<< or if you already have an Experian account then you can access “Experian Boost” in Beta when it launches “soon.”

**Sidebar: A note about Capital One Secured Card and Discover Secured Cards – Although they are secured cards, they are still extremely difficult to get approved for if you have negative items on your credit report. Also if you have ever defaulted with them or had a late payment, you are most likely going to get denied so better to NOT waste a credit inquiry on them. That is why I put this list together because these are things you can get approved for easily with challenged credit.

Items 1 – 7 & #9 above are the easiest to get.

 

P.S. NOTICE I LEFT OFF ALL TRUNK TRADELINES SHAVEBALL GARBAGE PRIMARIES THAT ARE NOT LEGITIMATE. Auto Primaries are NOT a thing anymore. Mortgage primaries, sorry my dear, you have to buy a house in order to get a mortgage to show on your credit report. 20k drink still does not report and NEITHER does that BLACK CARD bullshit.

 

However, if you know of anything that I did not list here that actually reports, please let me know so I can share with my clients 🙂
