Digital Details

Personal Info

Why do we need this information?

We use your name and contact info to keep all your details in one single file, and so we can contact you in the event that your application is interrupted. We also use your province of residence and date of birth to determine what products we're legally allowed to offer you.

Credit Score

Why do we need this information?

Your credit score is one of the elements we use to determine your custom credit building solution. We need an accurate idea of where you are starting and where you want to get to.
Don't worry - this isn't a credit check; it doesn't affect your credit score, and there's no minimum score required to apply.

What’s your current credit score?
No minumum score is required to proceed

To help you get where you want to be, we need to understand where you are now. This will help us offer a credit building solution to your specific circumstances.

Financial Goal

Why do we need this information?

Nodody builds credit for fun. By knowing what your end goal is, we can give you the tools you need to achieve it.

What's your reason for building credit?

Like we said, nobody builds credit for fun. This is the reason why you decided to start an application with Refresh.

What’s your #1 goal you’re trying to achieve by building your credit score?

This is the first thing you're going to do after you've reached your ideal credit score.

What’s a secondary goal you’re trying to achieve by building your credit score?

This is the next thing you're going to do after you've reached your ideal credit score.

Income

Why do we need this information?

There's no point in showing you a product you can't afford - talk about a waste of time! We use your income information to deliver you the most appropriate credit building solution for your situation, so you can make a decision without any hassle or delays.

Income sources to consider are:

  • Regular employment/self-employment
  • Bonuses, commissions, and tips
  • Side hustle earnings
  • Spousal support (alimony and child support)
  • Government support (disability payments and pension)
  • Any other form of recurring income not listed above

Expenses

Why do we need this information?

We want to help you build your credit and reach your financial goals, but we also want to ensure that building credit doesn’t cause you any hardship. The information about your monthly expenses allows us to offer you a custom credit building solution that won’t make it too hard for you to make ends meet.

Expense sources to consider are:

  • Rent/mortgage payment

Budget to build credit

Why do we need this information?

Everyone's financial priorities are different, and you can build your credit as fast or as slow as your budget allows. In order to help you reach your financial goals, we need to know what your credit building budget is so we can offer a credit building solution that will suit your needs.

What is your monthly budget to build credit?

Think carefully. Your credit building budget should be large enough that you can make progress, but not so large that it causes you hardship. We recommend that you stay within 10% of your total monthly income.

We recommend that the amount you allocate for credit building is no more than 10% of your total monthly income.

Learn the five key metrics that the credit
bureaus use to determine your credit score.

30% of your credit score is made up from the amount of debt you have in relation to the amount of available credit you have (also known as your utilization rate). Maintaining a balance on your credit card and/or line of credit isn’t necessarily a bad thing - as long as it is under 30% of the total amount of credit available to you.

Recommended solution to improve credit:

15% of your credit score is based on the length of time each account has been open and the length of time since the account’s most recent action.

Recommended solution to improve credit:

10% of your credit score is for the different types of credit you have.

Recommended solution to improve credit:

10% of your credit score in Canada is new credit and credit inquiries.

Recommended solution to improve credit:

35% of your credit score in Canada comes from on time payments. This is any payment you make on ANY sort of credit.

How to Build Credit
-fast-

What is a Credit Builder Loan?

A Credit Builder Loan is a cross between a savings program and a loan; you save money and build credit at the same time. All your payments report to the credit bureaus, which will improve your credit score.

How much “work” is required with the Credit Builder Loan?

You’ve got enough on your plate so we’ve made the Credit Builder Loan simple, just set it and forget it. Funds are automatically pulled from your account on a bi-weekly or monthly schedule based on what's affordable for you for hassle-free credit building. It’s one of the best ways to build credit.

Can I access the savings in my Credit Builder Loan?

The savings within your Credit Builder Loan are yours to access whenever you please. You can withdraw the savings without canceling or pausing the credit building program.
