Frequently asked

If you've got a question, you may just find the answer you're looking for here. If not, please visit our contact us page and get in touch.

How is a credit builder card different from other credit cards?

A credit builder card works like any other credit card but is specifically designed for people who may have trouble getting credit elsewhere. It does this by offering a lower initial credit limit and higher APR than you might be able to get with a higher credit score.

How do I know whether I’ll be accepted?

Our eligibility checker will let you know in under 60 seconds whether you’re eligible. You can then apply for your credit building card with confidence. You’ll need to know your current monthly income, what you contribute to mortgage or rent, and the total of your other essential monthly outgoings. Please be aware that being eligible doesn’t guarantee you’ll be accepted for a thimbl. credit card. If you are accepted, the thimbl. card provider will send you the relevant information over, along with a Credit Agreement.

What is the APR?

The APR is the Annual Percentage Rate and represents the amount you are charged on your credit builder card balance over a year. It includes interest and other fees and charges. For thimbl. the APR ranges from 32.9% to 45.5% dependent on your individual circumstances.

How long will it take to improve my credit score?

If you’re looking to improve your credit score, it can be a good idea to use your credit building credit card for making small purchases to keep your expenditure manageable and try to pay more than the minimum repayment on time. Depending on your personal scenario, and assuming other aspects of your credit profile are in order, you may begin seeing results in a few months.

How can I check my credit score?

You can see your score by using a reputable credit reference agency such as Experian, Equifax, or TransUnion. You can see how your score changes over time, and these named credit reference agencies also give tips on what else you can do to help to build credit score.
