I have been raving about Fingerhut Credit since day one. What I’ve realized over the years is that some people don’t consider Fingerhut to be “real credit” just because they do not issue a traditional credit card that you can see and feel.
Honestly, I used to feel the same way. Part of the reason is that we have been programmed to associate “real credit” with a plastic card because to some of us, possessing a credit card gives us a sense of power that makes us feel good inside.
With companies like Fingerhut and Gettington, which happen to be owned by the same parent company, a physical credit card is not issued. Since neither company has a physical retail shopping store, it serves no purpose to offer a traditional credit card.
Having said that…both companies report to the three major credit bureaus and that is what’s most important. Because both report and report often, this affords your credit score the opportunity to trend upwards at a much faster pace. My starting Fingerhut credit limit was $700 but in less than a year it is now $1400. My Gettington limit started at $400 and is now $1200.
It is worth noting that Fingerhut items will cost a little more than you would pay at a traditional retail store but in my opinion, it’s worth it because Fingerhut reports to all 3 of the major credit bureaus to help get your credit back on track. Apply for Fingerhut Credit today!
