  You’re a responsible adult. Credit Cards? Sure, you’ve got a few. Some of them are even just sitting in a drawer. You are savvy. You are the Harry Potter of credit card rewards. You haven’t looked at a credit improvement simulator in years. You get credit cards now to take advantage of points for trips or sign-on bonuses. Perhaps you have tens of thousands of dollars in available credit that you don’t even use. Perhaps there are cards you forgot you had that the only reason you remember they exist is because you see them occasionally on your credit…

  It’s the new year, 2019, and this is the year you’re finally going to get a handle on your credit scores, your credit reports, and get yourself into a position to get approved for that loan, mortgage, or car. Maybe it’s as simple as a desire to get approved for a few credit cards just in case you have an emergency. At Boost Credit 101 we don’t advise using credit cards for emergencies, but like being trained in some form of martial art when you’re in a dark alley and someone threatens you with bodily harm--it’s better to have…

  If you want to get something that helps you, something you very much need, how concerned are you with legality? Well, it probably has a fair bit to do with what you are morally comfortable with, and the risk of getting caught; and, hopefully, consideration of how this affects others. We don’t often get the question of whether or not adding tradelines credit is legal, but it’s something we do want to go over, as you should know if you are getting into business with someone who is willingly breaking the law, or indeed, if you are breaking the…

  These days, you really need a side hustle. The days of having a career that lasts your whole life are most certainly over. It’s becoming the case where we don’t have one career, but 5+ careers as things are moving so fast. And how about the fact that there a lot of jobs that currently exist that may become obsolete in the near future. This isn’t a doom and gloom post, more a gentle reminder that it’s important to have multiple streams of income in case something happens to one of them. Just ask the people who had fathers…

  You’re wondering...how to get tradelines on my credit. If you’re just browsing around the internet, looking for ways to make your credit better, then you have no doubt come in contact with companies that offer tradelines, as, after all, finding a reputable purveyor will inform you how to put trade lines on your credit, which usually means signing on the dotted line and paying a fee. You can, of course, approach a good friend or relative that has excellent credit and ask if you can be put on their accounts, but there are certain pitfulls with this. You are…

  We live in a culture where the phrase “Keeping Up With the Joneses” can take on several connotations, usually none of them good. If someone is embarking on this Jones endeavor, it usually means they are stretching themselves either beyond their means, or they are simply buying things (cars, watches, clothes) because they are trying to look good for people that don’t much matter to them. Despite this rather Tyler Durden-esque insight (he was right about that), people across the country are always trying to keep up with those Jones folks. This keeping up with the Joneses though...it’s a…

  The best way to get tradelines is to get them yourself. Let’s play the fantasy game. Do you dream of going to the American Express site and applying for the best possible card they offer and getting approved for thirty grand? Hey, it could happen. But if you have that ability, you’ve probably stumbled onto this site by accident and we probably want to talk to you about how to add people to your tradeline so you can get paid. Here’s where you might be thinking, someone who has that kind of credit profile and income doesn’t need to…

  There once was a time when the people who worked at Boost Credit 101 didn’t know what a tradeline was. This time can be likened to what it was like when Thomas Anderson (Neo) was inside the Matrix, before discovering that he was, indeed, trapped within a computer program called The Matrix and that his entire life was a lie. Tradelines are just like this. Okay maybe not just, but once you know about tradelines, it can be pretty hard to believe that you believed what you believed before you knew. But wait, you don’t know about them? Or…

  We get a lot of phone calls from people about credit tradelines for sale. Many people ask the same questions, over, and over, and over again. We don’t mind answering the same questions, but the first thing anyone can do is to learn the right questions to ask. The most common questions we get are: how much does this cost, and how much of a boost will I get? One these questions we can answer, because we know our prices, but we don’t know what the cost is for a person unless they know exactly what they want. The…

  In the third season of Black Mirror, an episode titled “Rate Me” imagined a future where people rated others just as they might a restaurant. Black Mirror takes the use of technology and the darkest parts of human nature, blends them, and takes them to some wild, and frequently extreme, places. But in “Rate Me” the show explored an idea that seems like it could happen at any time. In fact with the app Peeple, that was exactly the goal, rate others, called “Yelp for People.” You didn’t even need their permission, as by rating someone it would create…
