    How long does it take for APS' CreditBuilder to enable? 13th Jun 17 at 2:16 AM
    Hi,

    I think I had this card about 3 or 4 months ago and I still can't enable the CreditBuilder which is the main reason why I got it.

    Tried ringing them a few times but Customer Service said they can't overwrite the eligibility criteria and it seems to be random from what I can see of it.

    Anyone got any idea how long it takes? Is there any way to speed it up?

    Thanks.

    As far as I am aware there are no additional eligibility criteria for CreditBuilder. Not sure how you conclude that it is random.
    Of course, in order to add CreditBuilder you do need a pay monthly account (an account with a monthly fee). For obvious reasons, it is not available with a pay as you go account (an account without a monthly fee).
    As soon as you change your account type to pay monthly you will be able to add it with no problems.

    Why didnt you just get 1 of the credit cards for improving credit file eg aqua credit card.
    Can people stop loaning money/being a guarator to family/friends, it rarely ends well and you lose out as your money is gone or you get shafted with being a guarantor.
