Farm Bureau Bank News Building your Credit after Graduation

April 28, 2017

Congratulations graduate! You are now ready to enter the next phase in your life, which includes financial management skills. Credit is one of the major building blocks of a financially secure future and Farm Bureau Bank has the tools to help you build credit, improve your credit score and manage your accounts.

Build a solid credit history and boost your credit score:
A Farm Bureau Member Rewards MasterCard® can be one of the easiest ways to start building your credit history. When you use your card wisely, it can have a positive effect on your credit score. Using your credit card on a regular basis, paying the minimum payment due or more, staying below your credit limit and making payments on-time, can build a solid credit history that lets potential lenders know you can be trusted with financial responsibility. The above steps will improve your credit score, which may also allow you to receive lower interest rates and potentially save thousands of dollars over the life of your loans. Plus, as a Farm Bureau Member Rewards MasterCard card member, you can view your FICO® Score online for free, anytime!

Stay on top of daily spending:
Our Farm Bureau Member Rewards MasterCard has 24/7 online account management so you can check the card balance, pay your bill, view card activity, and set up alerts – email and mobile. These tools will allow you to keep track of your spending in an easy and convenient way.

Get rewarded for using your credit card:
Gain access to amazing reward options such as merchandise, travel, events, activities and even cash back through account credit – just by using your Farm Bureau Member Rewards MasterCard! Points can be tracked on the Farm Bureau Bank’s Member Rewards website and there is no limit to how many points you can earn and they don't expire for four full years.

A Farm Bureau Member Rewards MasterCard makes it simple and convenient to take control of your money and keep track of your spending. Let Farm Bureau Bank help you make the right financial choices and build a strong credit history for your future goals. Ready to get started?
