Making money off your credit cards is extremely easy and it almost sounds too good to be true, but of course, as it is with anything of financial benefit, there is a risk. The only known risk to our Cardholders is the slight chance that the credit card company figures out that you, the Cardholder, are making money off of your credit card(s) and the credit card company may do one of two things: 1) close the credit card account, or 2) leave it open, but disallow the Cardholder to add any more authorized users to it.
Over the last several years, BoostMyScore.com has become increasingly good at learning the trip hazards in the banks’ computer systems, and we are extremely good at avoiding them, which tends to keep our Cardholders’ credit card accounts free from repercussion. As an overall average, the first possibility only happens to about 15% of our credit cards, while the second situation happens to only about 5% of all of the credit cards in our program.
If a Cardholder is worried about the possibility of their credit card being closed by the bank, we suggest that they apply for a new credit card when they sign up for our program. If the card in our program is closed, the Cardholder will then have an alternate credit card to use if they need to, and could potentially begin selling the new card in our program, as well. Nonetheless, you must be comfortable with the risk of your card being closed by the bank.
The histories of credit card accounts that have been closed continue to be calculated into the credit score, even if the account is closed, prompting little to no effect on the Cardholders’ credit score/report. However, if the Cardholder is carrying revolving debt on other credit cards, and has an account closed, their “overall utilization ratio” will be impacted, which could lead to a lower credit score.
Either way, our current Cardholders unanimously agree that monthly cash flow is more valuable than simply having that one credit card. While replacing a credit card is easy, the cash you earn from BoostMyScore.com certainly is not.
