How Does A Credit Strong Account Work?

A Credit Strong account is the first fusion of credit building and an FDIC insured savings account available nationwide. Credit Strong allows you to grow your savings as you build credit, instead of spending on purchases with a credit card or making a large upfront deposit for a credit builder loan.

Secure credit cards trap you in a low limit revolving world.

  • With Credit Strong you can start with up to $2,000 of credit with no money down and have over $1,000 in savings in just 13 months.
  • With Credit Strong there’s no temptation or risk of overspending like there is with credit cards.
  • Credit Strong is an installment line of credit, so potential harm to your credit from high utilization of secured credit cards (revolving credit) is eliminated.

Credit builder loans require an upfront deposit and can be inconvenient.

  • Credit builder loans require you to deposit a large amount upfront to secure the loan.
  • Most credit builder loans have an inconvenient paper application process or require you to visit a branch in person.
  • Credit builder loans are only available in limited areas and sometimes require you to qualify for, and become a member of, a credit union to get one.
  • Credit builder loans don’t provide a free monthly FICO® Score to track your progress.
