To begin improving your credit score, you should aim to keep your credit card balances on the lower end along with any other type of revolving credit you may have. You should also begin the task of paying down your debt rather than moving it around, and you shouldn’t close any unused credit cards because you are looking for a “quick fix” strategy to improve your credit scores.
Become familiar with the information contained in each of your credit reports. They'll all look very similar, even if you've ordered them from different bureaus. Each credit report contains your personal identifying information, detailed history for each of your accounts, any items that have been listed in public record like a bankruptcy, and the inquiries that have been made to your credit report.

Disclaimer: All loans are subject to credit and underwriting approval. Loans Canada is a lead referral company, not a lender. Loans Canada only works with financial service providers that adhere to Canadian laws and regulations. Loans range from $500-$35,000 with terms from 4 months to 60 Months or longer. APRs range from 2.99% to 46.96% and will depend on our partner's assessment of your credit profile. For example, on a $500 loan paid monthly over 9 months, a person will pay $81.15 per month for a total of $730.35 over the course of the entire loan period. This amount includes our partner's optional loan protection policy. In the event of a missed payment an insufficient funds fee of around 45$ may be charged (dependent on the lender). In the case of a default on your loan your payment plan will be terminated and different collection methods will be employed to collect your remaining balance. Outstanding debts will be pursued to the full extent of the law. Our lenders employ fair collection practices.
They may be willing to waive some of the late penalties or spread the past due balance over few payments. Let them know you're anxious to avoid charge-off, but need some help. Your creditor may even be willing to re-age your account to show your payments as current rather than delinquent, but you'll have to actually talk to your creditors to negotiate.
