Review of weekly payment stores in the UK
Is a bad credit history ruining your life? Is a bad credit score preventing you from being able to
buy a new washing machine or fridge freezer because the one at home is broken?
Most major department stores run credit checks when you are looking to make a purchase that is financed. A
credit check can reveal a bad credit history and low credit score. In the UK, if you have a low credit score
then the lender sees you as a high-risk consumer and chances are, they will not give you a loan. If a bad
credit history is negatively affecting your life, you might want to seriously start considering ways to
increase you credit score and erase you poor credit.
So what happens if you need that washing machine or fridge freezer because the one you own is no longer working?
You might want to consider weekly payment stores. Weekly payment stores will offer you a line of credit to be used in their store even if you are bankrupt.
These stores usually don't
run credit checks. Just remember that having a bad credit
history means that you are looking at high interest rates. So make sure you only borrow what you can pay back.
It is crucial that you pay weekly on the amount financed to you because timely payments are what help build
your credit history.
You can make these payments online by using your debit card or if that doesn't work for you, you might want to
consider using direct debit. Direct debit is a convenient way to pay weekly if you are someone who is prone to
forgetting payments. Direct debit allows the lender to take the payment directly out of your current account on a
predetermined day of the week. Your bad credit history can only be repaired if you make your payments on time
otherwise you can make your credit score worse.
Weekly payment stores not only sale appliances like washing machines and fridge freezers; they also sell
furniture like sofas, TV accessories and television units. If you are not interested in purchasing large household
goods you might be interested in buying a gaming unit like a Playstation 3 (PS3), XBOX or Nintendo WII. Whatever
you decide to purchase, weekly payment stores are a great option for making purchases when you don't have the
up-front cash. Just make sure you pay weekly to ensure that you will not end up with an even worse credit
Maybe you are in default or dealing with a bankruptcy. Maybe you have a CCJ or insolvency. Whatever the reason may
be for your bad credit history, you can take steps to erase it and drive up your credit score. The first step is to
find a weekly payment store willing to loan you credit. The next step is to pay weekly to ensure that your credit
score goes up and not down. If you can manage these two steps you are bound to erase that bad credit history once
and for all.
