Want to improve your credit score? Try Creditbuilder

The Bank Account add-on unique to Cashplus

The Cashplus Bank Account with added Creditbuilder

One of the best things about a Cashplus Bank Account is its potential to improve your credit score without paying any extra. With our Creditbuilder add-on, you could give your credit score the boost it deserves.

Having a healthy credit rating is vital these days. It can help with everything from getting a mobile phone contract to having your mortgage application approved. In fact, Creditbuilder has already helped more than 200,000 people with all sort of credit issues.

Is Creditbuilder right for me?

If you’ve recently moved to the UK, don’t have much credit history or your credit score could use some help, Creditbuilder is a handy tool to get you moving in the right direction. You’ll be entering into a 12-month contract, so you should only sign up if you're sure you can commit to making all 12 payments on time.

How Creditbuilder works

1. Apply for the Cashplus Bank Account and either add Creditbuilder during your application or once your account is activated

2. Repay over 12 monthly payments. Creditbuilder is a 12-month loan equivalent to a year’s worth of account fees (£71.40 with the Activeplus account), that you repay over 12 monthly payments

3. We hold these funds for you, so you won't see them in your account and won't be able to spend them

4. Pay your monthly account fee as normal and we take it as a payment against your Creditbuilder loan, which we report to the Credit Reference Agencies

5. It could help improve your credit score and rating once you've made all 12 payments on time and you'll have successfully paid off your Creditbuilder loan

Different credit rating agencies use different score systems. To make the Creditbuilder results easy to understand, we've translated the actual scores out of a maximum score of 999 points. *

People who'd never had credit

That's an average credit score increase of 30% - and those extra points could make a big difference to your credit status. For example, an increase like this could be the difference between getting a great mobile phone on a contract or just a basic pay-as-you-go deal.

People who had a poor rating

That's an average credit score increase of 15% - which could be the difference between being approved or declined for a credit card.

People who already had a good rating

That's an average credit score increase of 10% - which could mean getting a better interest rate on your mortgage or bank loan.

*This credit score analysis was carried out with a leading UK Credit Reference Agency over a 12-month period for existing Creditbuilder customers. Results may vary for each individual. Other credit agreements may have also influenced customer credit ratings in accordance with their repayment history.
