Is it worth it for me to use tradelines and will it harm me in the end?
Credit Score: 553. Just got through using Lexington Law and they are useless ( used them for a year and got more done in 2 months than they did in 11 months!) And I signed up for the premium account! LOL

I have two credit cards now: one CapOne and one First Premier. Total credit about $700 combined. I would like to learn about piggybacking or adding positive long-term tradelines to my account that are REPUTABLE. Is there such a beast?

Amazing thing is I just paid $3200 in cash for airline tix and pay most of my expenses in cash because my credit history is limited.

Any advice?
