This post is towards Canadian readers. All of us want to improve our credit scores to borrow money at a lower interest rate when we buy a home, refinance the home or buy our cars. One way to improve the score is by having credit cards and using them well. But to have a credit card you need to have a good credit score. It’s a vicious cycle, how to get approved for a credit card with bad credit?
Each financial decision you make has an impact on your credit score. In general, your credit score is a reflection of how well or how poor you manage your finances. In recent times I applied for 3 different credit cards, total 4 in this year alone. I got approved for all of them. I apply for cards in a bunch of 3-4 every 6 months. This ensures I get sign-up rewards and bonus constantly, they are free money.
