Credit repair is critical to saving money on insurance, loans, and credit cards, but that's not the only reason to repair your credit. A better credit score opens up new employment opportunities, even promotions and raises with your current employer. If you dream of starting your own business or just want the security of knowing you can borrow money when you want to, you should repair your credit sooner rather than later.
In an industry like credit repair, reputation is everything when choosing which service to use. In that regard, Pyramid comes up short. To find out their track record with the BBB, we had to find them under their alternate business name, Credit Concierge Services LLC. The BBB lists that business as "NR" (No Rating) status until more data comes in; when we found that listing, there was only one review posted and it was negative. We found just over four dozen mostly-positive reviews specifically for Pyramid around the web, but in an age where we know that customer reviews can be faked (unlike what you find on TopConsumerReviews.com!), it's hard to know which ones are truthful without trusted validation like the BBB.
Then clean slate credit consultants in Florida. Branded as the donkey show. Priced at $59 to $25 and some pricing between $40 and $10 depending on who it is. Truly the best prices and the most unconventional website anywhere. Not for everyone. I was shocked but I figured it out. No upfront costs and they don't bill a credit card which I like. Google reviews rank at 200+. Impressive in this day and age.
"I just want to say how great it is working with CreditRepair.com and how much hope you guys have given me. You have made great strides in just a few short months and I am sure to reach my goal before this year is over. Whenever I call, and I call a lot, you are never too busy to talk to me and I knew from the very first interview that you truly care about your customers. With all my heart I am truly grateful."

We got even more confused when reading through the company's return and refund policy. It talks about returning software to Pyramid - but every description of the service says that it can all be accessed online. Why would they be shipping software to their customers - and would their customers install it with no clear explanation as to what it's used for?

Getting negative and inaccurate information off of your credit reports is one of the fastest ways to improve your score. Since credit bureaus have to respond and resolve a dispute within 30 days—a few exceptions can extend this to 45 days—it’s a short timeline. The timeline is particulary important when consumers want to buy a house, get a new car or open up a new credit card and don’t have time to wait to build good credit organically.
Yes they have military pricing for families as a courtesy. I used them before. Reliant has some kind of discount thing going as well, which is good because after they charge you and limit you, you get some $ off which is a relief. The dislikes on this are probably them or their fans. They don't seem to like competition which is understandable since they don't know how to compete anyway. Hope that helps.

"When I called CreditRepair.com my credit was really bad from being young and not knowing the value of good credit and paying bills on-time. I started to research how to fix it and came across their website so I decided to call. My credit score when I called was a 513 and is now in the 650 range. They have gotten 32 out of 40 negative items removed and I couldn’t be happier. Hopefully when the last 8 are removed it will be over 720! That’s my goal!"
If you have negative information on your credit report, it will remain there for 7-10 years. This helps lenders and others get a better picture of your credit history. However, while you may not be able to change information from the past, you can demonstrate good credit management moving forward by paying your bills on time and as agreed. As you build a positive credit history, over time, your credit scores will likely improve.
