    Hi Everyone

    I have a 550 score currently
    I just opened a Capital One unsecured with 300 limit
    Ive had a secured card for 200 open for a year
    I have 7 derogatories that will be tough to get rid of (3 of them are chase credit cards totaling 20k)

    What else can I do to boost my credit score? I was thinking so far as to get a car note and pay on that for a couple months Anyone have experience with this? Thank you in advance!!!

    Sounds like a good start. Keep one card empty, the other one as low as possible but keep some balance so it looks active.

    Some more ideas here: https://www.usloanoptions.com/articles/4-things-you-can-do-to-improve-your-credit-score

    Other then that just work on those derogatories. If possible move some of that debt to a personal loan / installment loan. Having such a loan can sometimes be seen as a positive thing for your credit score, where maxed out credit cards is not.
