Using a Prepaid Credit Card

Prepaid credit cards are always the best credit cards to improve your credit ratings. These are credit cards that are linked to a bank account. You deposit money in the bank account and whenever you use the credit card, money is removed from that account. Since you are using your money, there is no risk to the banker, and you do not have to worry about any repayment. Interest rates do not apply.

Such secured credit card facilities are provided by many credit card issuers, though they do not much advertise this fact. Look at prepaid credit cards if you want a sure way of building your credit score.
