Welcome to the NEW Tradeline Sales Thread!

If you want a referral to the tradeline company I recommend, Click Here To Send Me a PM.

This thread is a new thread to discuss tradeline sales.  The old thread can be found here. (It is not necessary to read it, all of the relevant information has been moved to this thread, but I'm providing a link for reference's sake--there was lots of discussion around this topic in that thread if you want to read more after reading this newer thread.)

I started this new thread, rather than keep using the old one, for a few reasons:
  • Several things changed, affecting the accuracy of the original post (what credit cards were accepted, what the payouts were) and so that some of the information was outdated/incorrect and the math on some of the examples wrong.
  • There is a new company I have to recommend, a long (but important post) that would be buried there, but will have more immediate prominence here, as the first few replies.
  • The old thread was filled with questions and answers and comments about the old tradeline company, which is still accessible there, but many of the posts and answers are now out of date and no longer relevant. The easiest way to "archive" those posts so all replies are current is to start a new thread.
  • The old thread was 15+ pages; wading through it just for the information one wanted was cumbersome.  A fresh start keeps the information compact and tidy.

If you already read the old thread, you can skip this first introduction post, as the bulk of it is duplicated, and jump straight to the first reply, which contains information about the new company being recommended.

(Note: Most of the below information in this post was from the old thread, but it has been edited/updated to reflect changes over the last five months in things like commission schedules, cards accepted, etc. so it is current as of this posting, and will be regularly updated if anything changes.)

If you didn't read the old thread, but just saw the title of this thread, the first thing you're asking yourself is:

Is this real?  It sounds too good to be true.

Yes.  It absolutely is real.  In 6 1/2 months (since mid-June), I've earned over $16,000.  Other Mustachians--since I posted the first thread about it in July--have signed up and earned thousands of dollars as well.  It's definitely real, and it's paying out many thousands of dollars every month.  It's not a scam, it's a way to use your credit cards to generate massive amounts of money for almost no work, legally.

I estimate my wife and I will net between 20k and 40k per year for an hour or two a month of work by this activity: selling trade lines on our credit cards.  This post is to introduce you to the idea, if you aren't familiar with the concept, or give more info if you've heard of it, but haven't looked at it closely yet.

What Is It?

Essentially, you are adding authorized users onto your credit cards, temporarily (for a month or two, before you remove them), and getting paid to do so.

Huh? What? Why? How does it work?

As you know, many things in our country run on credit, and if you have good credit, you are charged a lower interest rate when you finance things. If you have bad credit, you are charged a higher interest rate, and pay more money for things.

Due to this, people are often looking to temporarily "boost" their credit score.  If they are going in to buy a car, for example, if they have a bad credit score, they are going to be charged a high rate ("While the average interest rate for borrowers with good credit is between 4% and 5%, subprime borrowers will pay an average of 10% to 13%, depending on their credit score." -Bankrate.com).

Instead, they might pay $1000 (or whatever--all the numbers in this post will be illustrative) to a credit boosting company, who acts as the middleman bringing together people who have credit cards with a long history and/or high limits, and people who want their scores boosted.  That company then turns around and pays you $125-275 (depending on the card's age and credit limit). You add the person as an "authorized user" on your credit card you've had open, say, 5 years that has a $15,000 limit, and no late payments ever, and you spend a few bucks on the card, so it closes with a balance.

This new authorized user never receives a card, and can't spend any money on the card (see more details on this below).

A few weeks later, your credit card statement statement closes, the credit card company reports to the credit agencies that this individual is an authorized user on this card, which now, due to the amount of time the card has been open and the extra available credit, boosts their score.  They go buy the car, and save a bunch of money on interest.

A month later, you remove that person as an authorized user.

Okay, so, how much can I make?

Well, depending on the card, you can sell 2-5 trade lines (authorized user spots) every other month (i.e. two month cycles).  The amount you make depends on your card: how old it is, and how large the credit limit is.  The older it is, and the larger the credit limit, the more it helps the AU, and the more you get paid.

The payout schedule is as follows:


(With caveat: the bold ones are normally $25 less--for Mustachians they are as posted, if you use me as a referral.  See disclaimer at bottom of this post.)

Some cards they cap to 2 tradelines to help them from getting cancelled (see below), while other cards where the credit card company doesn't tend to cancel you might go up to 5 lines.  Ditto with how often they fill the lines up--some they keep for two months, some they will load up every month.

So say you have a Bank of America card (2 spots), Barclay (5 spots), Citi (5), Discover (5) and US Bank (5), and they all had between a 10 and 20k limit, and were all 2-20 years old.  You'd be making in the range of $125 (for the 2-7 year old, $10-15k cards) to $175 (for the 8+ year old, $15-20k cards).  Say an average of $150 per tradeline.

If you sold all of those (22) spots over the course of the two months, you'd make $3,300 (22 spots x $150/spot) per two months, or $19,800 annually.

Now imagine you had more cards than those five, or that you a spouse also that you enroll...

The numbers can get very silly very quickly.

Some months are slower (less people using credit, it's cyclical) so you might not make as much, some months you'll fill up everything.

What credit cards can I use?
Any card issued by: Barclays, Citi, Discover, PNC, USAA, US Bank, Bank of America, Capital One, Elan Financial, Worlds Foremost Bank, or Chase.

These are the eleven issuers right now that the company I recommend uses.  Cards issued by other companies tend to not post correctly (e.g. you add the AU, but it doesn't show up right for them) or have the card cancelled (see risks, below).

Those eleven tend to reliably post and not cancel cards.  Other companies may support other cards, but they may carry additional risk and hassle, and those companies may not be as reliable in terms of fraud and abuse (see below, as well as the rest of the thread for discussion). 

Concerns:
Is this illegal?
Not at all. Totally legal.  Also very likely against your credit card terms of service though, so you are at risk of them closing your credit card account.

What if the Authorized User spends a bunch on my card?
Not possible--they never get a copy of the card.  It's sent directly to you, to your address on the account.  Even if they call for a replacement card or something, A) They won't have the information needed to "verify" your account (like last 4 of your social, or your DOB, or anything about you), but further, even if they could, the replacement card is also is sent to your address.  As an authorized user, they can't change any info on the account, nor get a card shipped to them.  They'll be on the account for a month or two, and then removed, with no access to do anything on the account, nor any account information, nor the ability to spend any money.

The company I recommend has NEVER had an AU get a card and spend money on it, and they've been doing this for ten years. My previous recommendation, who has been in business four years, have also never had that happen.  Fourteen combined years, thousands and thousands of tradeline sales, zero instances of this.  I'm not worried about it happening in the slightest.

Do I need to have a good credit score?
No, not at all.  Your credit score never shows up on their account, at all.  Just the card(s) you enroll be in good standing, with no late payments ever.  The longer they've been open, the more likely someone is to purchase a tradeline on them. So the cards need to be good, but your credit itself doesn't matter.

What if the credit card company finds out? What if my card gets shut down?

That's the big (potential) drawback to this: your credit card company might close the card.  The tradeline company I use does some things to mitigate this, like I mentioned above: having you leave the AU on for two months instead of one, limiting certain cards to only 2 tradelines (other companies that have been less likely historically to close cards they do up to 5 tradelines).

In a worst-case scenario, the credit card company may shut down other lines and accounts you have with them besides that one card, and/or refuse to issue you new cards.  Chase is the only one I'm aware of that does this, so be careful with them, but the other companies, if they shut your card down (which is rare) will likely only shut down that one single card, not any other accounts with them, nor refuse to issue you any new credit.

Will this affect my credit score?

It doesn't affect your credit report, or score, at all.  Having an Authorized User, or not, is not a criteria on a credit report/credit score. (If it did, that obviously would be biased--either for or against--someone who is married, for example, and has an AU to add.)

If your card gets shut down, that could have an impact on your score (from having less "available credit"), however it won't affect it from merely being closed--the card, even when closed, still shows up on your credit report (for I think 10 years?), and the reason closed is the same as if you called them to close it, there's no hit as to "why" it closed.  Just the potential small hit from amount of available credit (e.g. affecting DTI).

If your card isn't closed though (which, again, from what I understand, it's not common for them to get shut down), there's obviously no change to your credit score.  In fact, your score will likely go up when you first start from calling and raising up your credit limits.

Isn't this unethical?

I guess that depends on you.  When you add an authorized user, it usually asks what your relationship to the person is, and you choose: Spouse, or Other (some CCs have "Spouse, Child, Other" and similar options..., but there's always an "Other" choice from what I've seen).  I, obviously, choose other. 

Adding them, or removing them, doesn't require lying, or doing anything illegal.  You add someone online, and then call to remove them.  I actually did this the other day, I called and said "I have two authorized users on my account I'd like to remove."  The customer service lady said no problem, had me verify their names, she confirmed they were removed, I said thanks, have a good day, that was it.

It does potentially violate the credit card company's terms of service, which means they (as a recourse for that violation) can shut down your card. Okay.  I obviously don't have a problem with it.

Our credit card system in the U.S. is unique. The credit card companies make billions each year on people paying interest.  I'm not too worried about them.

One more perspective--as Meadow Lark said in her journal when someone asked about the ethical implications:
"I don't see it as fraud.  It's not illegal. I'm not saying the AU is my kid or my husband - there is no lying.  There are a lot of different ethical frameworks people have.  Within my framework, this is ethical.  It's fine if we disagree.  I believe there is nothing wrong with helping other people improve their credit.  I believe there is nothing wrong with profiting from a loop hole in a financial system that was designed to foster increased income inequality.  I could go on and on, but I don't want to bore you."

If you feel it's unethical, that's fine.  It's definitely not worth doing anything you feel is unethical simply for money.  Steer clear, in that case. :)

Okay, so what do I do to get started?

Well, you go to a trade line sales company and sign up with them.  Be careful, because some are sketchy.  Make sure you research into one that is legitimate, an actual business that has been around for several years, etc.  Look into complaints about them and such.

The company I use, I chose because I got a good recommendation from a fellow Mustachian, researched into it, and they are totally legit.  If you decide to proceed, you will sign a contract, sign up for payroll, they 1099 you, etc.

I won't put more details here, because this post is just to introduce you to the concept of the idea, not spam/shill for a particular company.  If you want me to refer you to the company I use, send me a PM.

After you choose a company, and sign up with them, you'll want to go to CreditKarma.com, make a list of all the cards you have, the statement close dates, credit limits, and when they were opened.

Then you'll may want to call each of the CC companies to increase the limit on the cards you have (higher limit = paid more for the trade line).

Then you just add users when you're instructed, and given the information for the AUs.

So how much actual work is it?  What does it actually look like, step-by-step? How did you calculate that dollar per hour figure in the title?

First, as above, you sign up with the company and send them the info on the credit cards you want to enroll (you don't send them numbers or anything, of course, just which cards you have--the issuing company, limit, and how lont it's been opened).

Then it looks like this:
1) You get an email that a user needs to be added.
2) You go to the website of your CC company, and add the Authorized User online (time = 2-3 min)
3) You spend $ on the card (you can use it for any normal spending, which I have done, sometimes paying a bill online or whatever with each individual card, or if I have no spending I need to do on a CC, I load my Amazon gift balance with a few bucks on the card--but the card does need to have some balance on it when it closes to have it report correctly) (time = 2-3 min)
4) After a month or two, you call up your CC company and ask to remove the AU (time=5-15 minutes, depending on how long you're on hold).

I also spend a minute or so per card plugging it into my tracking spreadsheet (see previous post for an example of my spreadsheet) when I add the user and do the spend, and when I pay the card off.

Total payment for this time = $225 (for my average card, yours might be a bit higher or lower).  Total amount of time = ~10-20 min.  Hourly rate = $700-$1300-ish per hour.

How do I report it to the IRS?

Like any other income.  If you choose a reputable trade line company, you'll get a 1099.

Warning

Let me repeat again, even though I mentioned it above: This has risks.  It is almost always against the credit card company's terms and conditions.  You should understand the risks before committing to anything like this.

They can, and very well might, shut down your account.

The way I've made my peace with it:
If someone came to me and said I'll pay you $50,000-$100,000 to shut down all your old credit cards (with the caveat that it won't hurt my credit score too much*), would you do it?  Heck yes, I would! I'd jump on that deal in a heartbeat.  So even if, over the next few years, ALL my CCs I'm using end up getting shut down (which I'm highly doubtful of), I'd accept that trade.

*It wouldn't affect my credit score much at all--the cards would still stay on my credit report for 10 years, and I'd still have other cards (like Amex, which aren't in this program) boosting my score.  It'd just hurt my DTI since I'd have less available credit, but I don't have any CC debt anyways, so my utilization is always near 0 anyways, plus I can open new cards.  I do all the time anyways, for travel hacking.

So you'll pay me tens of thousands of dollars in order to shut down my older cards, but leave them on my credit report, but just have to open some new ones to increase my available credit again, and start those aging?

Great!

Heck, the only reason I have those old cards is to boost my credit score--I have no use for them otherwise.  So if it'll still stay on my credit report for 10 years, still showing a long, positive payment history, then why not use them to make money with them also?

Yes, I'll take that trade.  Especially given that the cards may not necessarily be shut down, and you can stop doing it any time.

So, like I said, I don't know which, if any, cards will get shut down.  If some do, maybe I'll stop with the rest at that point, maybe I won't, but I've made my peace with the fact that the CC companies don't like it, and may shut it down, by thinking of it in those terms.  I'd absolutely take that trade, so why not try it out for the next year or two and see what happens?

Again, if you want a referral to the company I use, feel free to PM me, but I don't want this to turn into spam/shilling for certain companies--we've already seen high traffic for it from Google, and I know from being contacted that it's on the radar of some of those companies, and I'd rather keep the spam out.

This sounds pretty awesome, how do I get started?

I think that just about covers everything.

Okay, so the above post explained what selling tradelines IS.  Now let's look at the two companies I believe are the only ones worth using, from my research: A previous recommendation, and a new one.

Comparison of Two Companies: Short Analysis

After spending 15+ hours on the phone spread over a half dozen calls or so (yes, the average length was about two hours each, highest one was 4+ hours) with the founders of multiple tradeline companies, mostly with the previous recommendation and the new one, plus many, many emails, I have a new recommendation for tradeline sales.

This post is if you just want the short summary. The immediately following post will have more details.

Bottom line: I do have a new company I'd recommend using (as before, you can PM me for info on which company it is).  The old company is still good, too.  In fact, if they were accepting new members, or new cards from old members, I would be fine recommending them as well, mostly as a secondary backup (but see notes on this, below).

If you already have cards with them, and want to keep them there, that's absolutely fine--I have no negative things to say about the old company.

I do think that switching is a better move (as I think you'll sell more lines, even keeping it in the low "don't cancel me" range), but I wouldn't argue someone going with a company they've been using for months and happy with.  Or even putting some cards with one, and some with the other, for diversity's sake.

They are the only two companies I can recommend, based on one primary reason: how they both handle verifying user's information.  Again, more details in the next post.

Comparing to the old recommendation, the new recommended company:
  • Has been in business longer (much longer)--not fly-by-night as many are.  (So it's ironic that I'm calling it the "new" company--I mean that only in the sense that it's the new recommendation.)
  • Pays the same or more (as the new payment schedule of the old company that went into effect Dec 1) for every category of card (with caveat: it's lower for two categories for general signups, but I negotiated it up only for Mustachians so that it's the same or higher in every category, see disclaimer at very bottom paragraph of this post for details)
  • Has more AUs buying lines = you sell more lines per month = you make more money.  I switched all my cards to them, and have made more in sales than ever before.
  • Pays out quicker (after 4 weeks, rather than at the end of the next month).
  • Does identity verification on all their AUs & does not accept CPNs (a deal breaker, if they did).
  • Accepts all the same cards as the old company (six card), and even five more cards the old company does not. Complete list: Barclays, Citi, Discover, PNC, USAA, US Bank, Bank of America, Capital One, Elan Financial, Worlds Foremost Bank, and Chase.
  • Accepts cards less than two years old, and between a 5k-10k limit, neither of which the old company does (though they prefer older, and larger limits, obviously, as they're easier to sell) (EDIT: See this post for update. /END EDIT)
  • More cutting edge on industry requirements and security

The downside of the new company:
  • Their technology is much worse (no online portal, everything done manually via emails)

Okay, so that was the short version!  If you want more details, there's more information in the very next post on all of the above bullet points.  It's difficult to compress 15+ hours of phone calls, research, etc. into just the salient points.

If you're satisfied enough with that information, feel free to send me a PM for a referral to the new company, if you want all the details, read on.  :)

Disclaimer: I will ask you use me as a referral.  It will not lower the amount you are paid whether you mention I referred you, or not.  In fact, in two categories with the new company, you will make more using me as a referral.  You do not have to use me as a referral, however, if you do not wish to.  Regardless of any referral fee, I'd recommend the best option. There is no difference in referrals from either company, so it had no bearing on my recommendation, but even if there was, I wouldn't hesitate to share the one I thought was better, not the one that gave me a higher referral fee.

    Okay, I'm assuming you've read the previous post, directly above this.  If not, please read that first.

Comparison of Two Companies: Long Analysis

This post is to go into more details on each of those things, so I'll go bullet point by bullet point and expand on each one with details.

Quote
  • Has been in business longer (much longer)--not fly-by-night as many are.  (So it's ironic that I'm calling it the "new" company--I mean that only in the sense that it's the new recommendation.)

The new recommendation has been in business over 9 years, since 2007--they're the longest running tradeline company.  There were others that were in business when they started, but have all gone out of business since then, they're the only one around from that time.  The previous recommendation has been in business for four years.  Plenty of time for me to be comfortable with either one, versus some of the "fly by night" places that I'd worry wouldn't be around to issue a 1099 come tax time.

Quote
  • Pays the same or more (as the new payment schedule of the old company that went into effect Dec 1) for every category of card (with caveat: it's lower for two categories for general signups, but I negotiated it up only for Mustachians so that it's the same or higher in every category, see disclaimer at very bottom paragraph of this post for details)

The payout schedule for the new recommendation, compared to the old recommendation, is as follows:


The two bolded categories in the new one are $25 less for someone contacting them after finding them on Google (or wherever), but--since it was less than the old recommendation just for those two categories, I negotiated a bump up for Mustachians if you use me as a referral--that bold number reflects the $25 bump, but you will not earn that if you don't use me as a referral.  See disclaimer at the bottom of the previous post, or this one, for more details on this.

As you can see, this company:
  • Allows cards younger than two years (more on this in another question below)
  • Has extra length broken out to pay more, rather than just lumping all cards into "2+ years"

So if we compare the old company (with their current payout schedule that started in December, obviously), and look at the 10-20k, 2+ year range, they pay $125.

The new company, if it's in the 10-15k range pays $125 also (again, only if you are a Mustachian/use the referral) if it's 2-7 years old, so the same as the old company, but will pay an extra $25 to make it $150 if it's 8+ years old.  And if it's in the 15-20k range will pay 150-175 based on age.  So if you have an 8 year old, 15k card, they'll pay $175 instead of the old company's $125.  Times 2-3 tradeline sales every other month times, say, four cards, that's an extra $3,000 over the course of a year.  The small amounts add up.

In the 20-30k range, the old company pays $175, the new one $200-225.  In the 30-40k range the old one is $200, the new one is $250-275.  For 40k+ cards, the old company pays $225, new one pays $275 or up.

As above, those small differences can add up.  For a real life example, on my cards in Nov/Dec, I sold 24 lines so far (between myself and my wife, for both months) and got paid an extra $525 over what I would have at the old company (7 lines paying the same, 17 paying $25-50 more, based on either age or being in the top half of the payment bracket).  Over the course of a year, that's an extra $3,150.  Those little $25s can add up.

And that's not counting the fact that I'm selling more lines.  (See the next question.)

Quote
  • Has more AUs buying lines = you sell more lines per month = you make more money.  I switched all my cards to them, and have made more in sales than ever before.

So we've all seen that the old recommendation has an issue with selling the lines they have.  We (Mustachians) flooded their inventory with CCs, and they don't have the AUs to keep up.  I immediately saw my number of sales drop, they had to suspend enrollments for a few weeks, and then, after opening them back up for a short period, suspending them again for the rest of the year.  And sales have been quite slow since then.

Some users are seeing sales (I've gotten PMs with details), but others are seeing only a few, or none at all.

I do think we will somewhat flood this company, too, at first, but I am more confident in their ability to fill out tradelines for two reasons:
  • I immediately saw tons of sales on my cards--this indicates lots of current demand
  • Due to their length of time in business, they have many more AU referrals coming in from their network

Allow me to elaborate on this last one, as it's really one of the key reasons why I'd recomend this new company, to the point of it being worth switching even old cards.

The new referral company uses a network of affiliates.  This network has been built up over the last ten years that they've been in business, such that they rarely advertise for AUs anymore, because these affiliates bring them AUs.  These affiliates are people who resell the tradelines to the referred company, which acts as a wholesale supplier of the tradelines.

These people are from a variety of professions, but examples include people in the mortgage business, a used car dealer, someone connected to international students, credit repair companies, etc.

Basically all of these people who have been in their network for a long time will have people who need to boost their credit for some reason or another (to improve their credit, to purchase a car from them, that sort of thing), and these people will sell the tradeline to that AU at a higher price, bring the AU to this company, who will run all the ID verification and checks for them, then sell them your tradeline, and pay you.

So basically they have a ton of people bringing them AUs, which means they have a much higher demand, which means more sales.  That huge network of affiliates is key to maximizing income on this, and selling lines regularly.

Quote
  • Pays out quicker (after 4 weeks, rather than at the end of the next month).

The old company pays out at the end of the following month.  So if you have a tradeline sale at the beginning of one month, you'll be waiting 8 weeks to get paid on it (the end of the next month).  Your best case scenario is if you have a tradeline sale at the end of the month, so you'll only be waiting until the end of the next, four weeks.  That's the quickest payout, but all range from 4-8 weeks, with the old company.  Most sales will likely average around 6 weeks before payment.

The new company pays out 4 weeks after your closing date every time (so you may get paid mid-month, or beginning of a month, or whatever), so matching the best time by the old company, and halving their worst time.

Not a big deal for Mustachians, most likely (we can wait to get paid, unlike many people living paycheck to paycheck), but it certainly doesn't hurt to get paid earlier.  :)

Quote
  • Does identity verification on all their AUs & does not accept CPNs (a deal breaker, if they did)

This is true of both the companies I recommend (the old and new one), and of very few, if any, others (the first part--many do not accept CPNs).  Make sure, if you go with any other tradeline companies, you VERY thoroughly grill them on how they verify their AUs.

So first of all, CPNs, as have been mentioned in the old thread, are deal breakers.  CPNs (Credit Privacy Numbers) rather than SSNs (Social Security Numbers) are often used because a person doesn't want to use their SSN. That's a big red flag, because it means they may not have one, or because they're intending to do something shady. It's not always the case, and there could be a legitimate use of CPNs, but the fact is there's a much higher instance of fraud with them.  This is bad for two reasons: liabiltiy (you don't want someone likely to commit fraud being an AU), and it leads to a much higher rate of shut down for your cards.  So CPNs are out.  Luckily, neither company allows CPNs.

Most don't, however.  The thing that sets these two companies apart from many others I recommended is how they verify the identity of potential AUs. 

Both companies have essentially the same process for verifying potential AUs, and use the same third party company to vet the AUs identities (I was asked by the owners of both independently to not post the name, because of other competitors potentially reading it).  They collect ID (driver's licenses or passports), Social Security cards (or use a verification of social security number form from the IRS called an SSA-89: "Authorization for the Social Security Administration (SSA) To Release Social Security Number (SSN) Verification Form").   There are various software searches they run which will alert them to red flags (addresses or phone numbers not matching up, for example), which will allow them to ask for more documentation/proof.  This is then stored securely by that third party company in case of potential issues down the line.

The idea is that if a bank or credit issuer comes later asking what you did to verify this AU, you have evidence that you attempted to do so, and how.  This is MAJORLY beneficial for someone worried about tradeline sales for two reasons:
  • It's a CYA (cover your butt) thing to help shield you from liability
  • The more stringent requirements will deter scammers in the first place

If you're wanting to commit fraud, you'll go to the shadier companies that don't verify all these things in these strict ways.  So there's a much, much higher chance that the AUs you're getting are legit and there won't be issues.  These two companies are the strictest ones on this, as far as I can find.

Quote
  • Accepts all the same cards as the old company (six card), and even five more cards the old company does not. Complete list: Barclays, Citi, Discover, PNC, USAA, US Bank, Bank of America, Capital One, Elan Financial, Worlds Foremost Bank, and Chase.

Old company accepts six: Barclay, Citi, Discover, PNC, USAA, or US Bank

New company accepts eleven: All the same six, plus: Bank of America, Capital One, Elan Financial, Worlds Foremost Bank, and Chase.

No other explanation needed.

For Chase, you have to "pair" it with another card.  Chase won't post on its own, but if you have a non-Chase card as well, they can sell a slot on the Chase and the non-Chase one to get the Chase one to correctly report by "tying" it to another one via the address.  This can be seen as a benefit, as you'll get paid for both sales, or a hinderance, as it may deter some AUs, so you might get less sales on the Chase card.  Either way, they accept it, which the old company no longer does, so it's better than not being able to use it at all.

Quote
  • Accepts cards less than two years old, and between a 5k-10k limit, neither of which the old company does (though they prefer older, and larger limits, obviously, as they're easier to sell)

(EDIT: See this post for update. /END EDIT)

As you can see in the payout schedule above, the old company only took cards that were at least two years old, the new one will take cards that are less than two years old.  The new one also takes cards with a limit of 5k-10k, whereas the old company only takes ones that are 10k+ limits.

There is a major caveat: AUs usually don't want these cards.  The older cards help their score a lot, and the ones with higher limits help their scores a lot.  Low limits or short history don't really help them.  So you likely won't get many sales on cards that are < 10k limit or < 2 years old.

But even if you only get one or two sales for the year, they'll more than cover the typical annual fee, and have so few AU activity they'll have almost no chance of shut down.  So you won't see many sales, but might as well enroll them to try and pick up the odd sale while you're waiting for them to age.

And if it has a high limit but low age (or vice versa), they may pair it with another card you have to keep the average age up (e.g.  if you have a 10-year card and a new card, each with a 30k limit, they might add both, to add 60k in credit, and an average age of 5 years between the two cards).

Either way, this certainly doesn't hurt.

Quote
  • More cutting edge on industry requirements and security

So the whole identity verification third party records thing discussed above came about because the owner of the company wanted to keep on top of the industry and make sure they were doing everything they could to comply with regulations.  So he hired a person who works for Chase to advise on how to make sure to keep the banks happy on their requirements.  The job title of this guy was "Director of Compliance and High Priority Regulatory Matters" at JPMorgan Chase (he sent me a snippet of the guy's resume; quite impressive).

Another time, he hired two consultants to the banking industry, the people they bring in to assess fraud prevention, look at FICO and advise the credit bureaus.

We discussed his use of these consultants, and, while I don't feel like I'm at liberty to go into more detail on what exact sort of stuff they told him and what changes he made (not that I know all that much, but a little), but suffice it to say, I was pretty impressed.

His willingness to hire people like this (at a substantial hourly rate) just indicates a really solid business that's trying to stay ahead of the curve, in compliance with all regulatory matters (which is very important to me), and indicates why it's the longest-lasting company in the arena, just solid, long term decisions that make me comfortable that they know what they're doing.

No other company does this, that I'm aware of, even the old one.



So there's all the upsides of this company.

The downside to this company, and the big advantage the old referral has is: technology.

Quote
  • Their technology is much worse (no online portal, everything done manually via emails)

The old company's portal is good (once you figure out how to access the AU's info, if you missed it in the instruction PDF).  Everything is automated in terms of getting notice of the sale, confirming the add, removing AUs and marking them removed, etc.

The new company has a portal, sort of, but it's not in use.  I got a login for it and poked around, and can see why it's not being used.  Right now they manually do everything.  So when you get tradeline sales, they email you with the AU info to add (and, if Discover, email the info that might need to be uploaded).  After you add them, you email them back to confirm you added it.  Later they will tell you when to remove the AU, via (you guessed it) an email.

This could be considered a pro, if you like that personal touch, or a con, if you like it all automated, and less emails.

They are working on tweaking/updating their portal, and their owner swears it will be in use soon, but there's a lot of work to be done from what I can see.  For now, the manual (email) way does work, even if it's less efficient.

They both have great customer service (I might give a slight edge to the old company, other than when we flooded them and they had to put in the autoresponder syaing they'd reply within 24 hours, but both have been great).



Recommendation

So let's talk recommendations.

It should be pretty obvious which company I favor: my new recommendation (otherwise, why would I be recommending them?--but it should be obvious why, if you read the above).  I want to note that both the previous recommendation and the new one are solid companies.  I wouldn't hesitate to use either one, personally.  I do think the new one has an edge in many areas, as outlined above.

If you are just signing up for a new account, I'd go with the new company.  The old one isn't even taking new investors, for now, but even if they were, I don't see a reason to use them at this time.

If you have cards with the old company, likewise, I'd be looking to move them over, mainly for the extra small payment boosts and more lines sold, to maximize income.  If you want to leave some cards with the old company for awhile, that'd fine, too.  Having diversification between companies (i.e. a few cards at each) isn't a bad idea, though I don't see it necessary, as they've been in business 4 years (old recommendation) and 10 years (new recommendation), so I can't see either going away any time soon.

If you do move cards from the old company to the new one, they (the old recommendation, the one you're moving from) asked me to make it clear they do not want cards "back"--i.e. if you've used a card with another tradeline company, since they weren't able to personally verify the information on the AUs used in the meantime, they feel it's at higher risk of being shut down, so don't want to take the risk of using the card.  I feel confident the new company verifies just as thoroughly, but they have the right, of course, to accept or refuse any cards they want.  This would not deter me from moving cards to the new company, but it is something you will want to keep in mind.

What could change to make me refer people to the old company again?  If they upped their payments or started having more AU sales--either through their own marketing seeing more sales, or if the new referral company got even more bogged down than the previous one, and the previous one started seeing more sales that are spread out more due to people leaving them.

Right now, I don't anticipate this being the case, but I could see a future point where the cards have flowed to an equilibrium between the two, and both are good recommendations.

If and when the new recommendation becomes totally saturated (I don't think it will, but if it happens), that could obviously change things.

But as of right now, both companies hit the requirements I have for having me want to work with them in the first place.  I knew of the new recommendation originally, but their payout schedule wasn't competitive with the pre-December one of the old recommendation.  When the old recommendation changed their commission schedule, I started looking into other companies, and this one immediately stood out.  I researched other ones, but none passed the initial tests to make me want to enroll my cards personally with them.

I have enrolled my cards with the new company for the past two months now, I've used them, and gotten my payment from them for the AUs added, and feel confident in recommending them.



Summary

Here's the bottom line.  The new company pays the same, or more, accepts more cards, has more AU requests coming in, has been in business longer, and just generally is a better choice, IMO.  The old company is still a good company, but has fallen behind due to their edge (higher payouts) going away via the updated December commission schedule.

If you want a referral to the tradeline company I recommend, Click Here To Send Me a PM.

Disclaimer: I will ask you use me as a referral.  It will not lower the amount you are paid whether you mention I referred you, or not.  In fact, in two categories with the new company, you will make more using me as a referral.  You do not have to use me as a referral, however, if you do not wish to.  Regardless of any referral fee, I'd recommend the best option. There is no difference in referrals from either company, so it had no bearing on my recommendation, but even if there was, I wouldn't hesitate to share the one I thought was better, not the one that gave me a higher referral fee.

This post reserved for later edits/updates/information.  Basically just a placeholder post, in case I need to add another giant wall of text with new information/updates that I can edit later.  :)

For now, just one piece of information to explain:

Why am I posting this?

When I posted this information originally in July, it caused the first company to get flooded, and immediately affected my tradeline sales, cutting down the amount I was making.  (The extra money made in referrals by those who used me as a referral helps some, but did not make up for this, as each referral is a fraction of a tradeline sale.)

It was suggested to me shortly after posting the thread for everyone that I should delete it, to keep the tradeline site from having even more new people added.  Similarly, it was recently suggested to me that, if I found a new good site, there was no reason I had to post it.

But I did not agree, and I still posted the above information, obviously, and here's why:
1) I would not feel right moving my cards from a company I recommended to a new company, but leaving all the people I had recommended to sit with the old company I was no longer using.  Even though I still feel comfortable with that company, and WOULD use them, just quietly moving my cards and saying nothing feels wrong, to me.  (For this same reason, I feel obligated to contact people I recommended the old company to, in order to let them know I've switched--it's more work, but I feel I have an obligation to let them know that I am no longer using that company.)

2) As I said in the OP, Mustachians have thousands of dollars in the last 5.5 months since I posted the original thread.  That's awesome, to me.  I wouldn't be surprised to see that number shoot up this upcoming year, in 2017.  It gives me warm fuzzies to think of all that money going towards debt payoff, or towards accelerating Mustachians' FIRE paths, or helping reduce sequence of returns risk for a recently FIRE'd Mustachian.

The alternate is those tradeline sales would be going to other credit card holders with those companies, and in all likelihood, they're consumer suckers wasting that money.  Boooo.

Even if I'm making a little less personally, of all of those tradelines sales Mustachians are making, only a few are coming from ones I would have gotten, but many more are coming from those other consumer suckers.  Less for me, but much better in the aggregate for Mustachians!

3) I got a PM from another member several months ago who had made several tradeline sales since I referred them.  Part of that PM said:
Quote
Personally, I'm experiencing a lot of health problems this year that, even though I've been fairly mustachian my whole life, cost more than my disability income covers, so the TLs are a huge help there and also help me feel less stressed about mounting medical bills... This way, I can keep chipping away at them.

So THANK YOU!

That totally made not only my day, but my week, and I still get happy when I think about it.

The bottom line is that I feel more affinity towards this community than I do towards a little more money, so why not spread the love?

So go forth, Mustachians.  Sell tradelines, earn awesome side-gig money, and use it in financially smart ways.  And send me a PM when you do, cause I love to hear it.  :)

Temp post.

Thought of something else I want to add, but no time to type up right now.  Nothing major, just clarifying something.

I got my Citi card cancelled this way on the 3rd month, with only 2 AUs on the card at the time. So there are risks indeed. Make sure to use cards which you're not using on daily basis.

No problem.  I'd be doing the research anyways, for my own use with my cards and my wife's, so better to type up and sharing with others.

I got my Citi card cancelled this way on the 3rd month, with only 2 AUs on the card at the time. So there are risks indeed. Make sure to use cards which you're not using on daily basis.

You're literally the first Mustachian out of dozens to report this.  So it's definitely not common.  It is absolutely a risk though, and mentioned several times in the OP.  Don't sell tradelines on a card you can't handle being cancelled.  If you're okay with the possibility of it being cancelled, it's quite lucrative to sell tradelines while you can.  :)

EDIT: We PM'd, and it turns out Polak_maly was using a different tradeline company than either of the two I recommend, and his card was shut down after just a few months.  This is the issue that I have with other companies--they don't verify their users the way the two I recommend (the old, and new, recommendations) do.  Which means higher instances of fraud, and much higher shutdown rates.

That's why there are only two I can recommend, and why I had to do so much research first, because otherwise it's a much higher risk.  I can't find any other businesses taking the precautions/safeguards they do.  :)

Not worth getting cards shut down in a few months, to me, especially if you can go with a reputable company rather than a shady one, and keep it going for a long time.  And that's why no other Mustachians reported shut downs on their cards--they were using the safer, recommended company.

Hope that helps put a few minds at ease.  :)

Though, as I said in the OP, and this reply, shutdowns CAN and DO happen.  They're just much less likely if you use the right companies.

Barclays lets you do both, and Chase.

B of A lets you add online, but you have to call to remove.

Capital One can definitely add online, and I think lets you remove, but I can't remember 100%.

Discover, like you said, lets you do both.

Can't say for Citi or any of the other ones, hopefully someone else will chime in.

What, in your opinion and research is the minimum marketable age of a card?

I have not historically maintained a large number of credit cards, We have one we use for household and another for travel, plus a third that was issued as overdraft protection that we never use. Two of these are from the companies listed, but neither is a card I want shut down in the event of problems. I *could* open a few new CC accounts over the next several months to just sell tradelines against. Would they be marketable?

Thank you for posting this. I read the other thread but quickly got "lost in the sauce" with all the comments, this is a very nice summary and recommendation.

Thank you, ARS! I've sold 3 tradelines so far, though if I count time spent reading the thread as work, I'm probably down to about $50/hr. :)

I also don't typically have a lot of cards open. One thing I'm looking at is getting a new "everyday" card and then using the old one for selling tradelines. It doesn't really matter from a rewards standpoint if my everyday card is 2 years or 2 months old, but it clearly matters from a tradeline standpoint.

Another thing you can do, if you have a SO that you combine finances with (you did say "we"), is get a new version of the same type of card in their name, and moving the one in your name to tradelines.

I hope I can get in this time. Last time, by the time I had done enough of my own research to feel comfortable, they were not accepting any new signups anymore / yet.
I only have one card I want to use for this in the first place.

Also, little side note: You seem to be recommending Credit Karma a lot.
You have a blog.
As a blogger you can apply for affiliate networks.
Credit Karma has affiliate links...
I think it gives you only like 25 cents or so per person signing up.
I'll have to look, I applied with them a few weeks ago.
But anyhoo. If you are planning on writing more about this on the future you may want to consider signing up for that as well.
I bet a lot of folks (including myself) signed up for Credit Karma because of your recommendation...
It's not much in comparison what the other referral fees are, but it's something ;)
Just saying!

Here's my question:

Do the issuers auto-mail AU cards to the primary address on file? I know ARS moves around a lot, but if you don't want your family or whoever to deal with all this extra mail, does it make sense to wait until location stationary, or is there not really any extra mail to deal with?

Thanks for the write up Joe and all your hard work!!

I only have one card but it's 10+ years old and just increased credit limit to over 20K. Keeping my finger crossed I can get in on some of this action. Sent all my info in and just waiting to hear back.

I'll add to the chorus of thanks for this intense research (while claiming to be retired, ha! ;).

I'd bet this community in total has made well into the six figures since the first thread was posted with minimal effort.  I'm looking forward to getting my Bank of America card into the action.  I also just asked for a credit line increase on my old Discover Card and now it is over $20k!!

Cheers for sharing the awesome side gig!

I do not use Chase personally, as discussed earlier in this thread, as I don't want to risk getting it shut down (I have 500k+ UR points that would go poof). I do use B of A, Capital One, Discover, etc. because I don't care if those cards get shut down.

Other people do use Chase, because they're okay with the risk of Chase closing their cards.

Which CC companies allow you to add and remove AUs online?  I have only used Discovery so far.

Barclays lets you do both, and Chase.

B of A lets you add online, but you have to call to remove.

Capital One can definitely add online, and I think lets you remove, but I can't remember 100%.

Discover, like you said, lets you do both.

Can't say for Citi or any of the other ones, hopefully someone else will chime in.

USAA is a phone call both to add and remove.

What, in your opinion and research is the minimum marketable age of a card?

The new company apparently accepts cards that are least 1 year old and at least $5K credit limit, with more money paid for older cards and for larger limits.

The previous company accepts cards that are at least 2 years old and $10K minimum credit limit, also with more money paid for older cards and for larger limits.

There is a chart of the payouts earlier in the thread.  It's up to you to decide if the payments are worth the effort.

Does anyone know if the new company can use Business Cards?  I'm guessing not, but it would be nice since I have several with large limits.

I asked them this, and they confirmed that they cannot use business cards because they don't post to personal credit histories.

They also confirmed that they cannot use AMEX-issued cards because the AMEX-issued cards don't post the year the card was opened to the AU's credit history (and, I'm inferring, don't boost the AU's credit score).

(I also have several business and AMEX-issued cards that would otherwise qualify.)

How many authorized users does Chase and Capital One allow?

I don't know how many AU's Chase and Capital One allow.  However, the company ARS is recommending in this thread (the new one) says that they only add 2-3 AUs every three months on Chase and Capital One lines because those issuers are more twitchy and likely to close down your line.

Note that I believe that is 2-3 AU's per three months per line.  So if you had five credit cards at Chase, you could add between 10-15 AU's every three months.

Also, other issuers are not as twitchy and you can sell more spots per line with those other issuers.

Finally, at least with the old company you could specify fewer slots if you wanted to.  I would guess the new company would be able to limit how many slots they sold on any given line, but I don't know that for sure.  (Not a question for me, as I am willing to go as far as the new company and my CC issuers will let me.)

Thanks tj & ss17 for posting/confirming info on which let you add online.

What, in your opinion and research is the minimum marketable age of a card?

They need to be aged at least a year with this new company (old one was two years).  Beyond that piece of info, I couldn't tell you yet about the demand for those cards.  Since this new company takes ones that are 12-24 months old, we'll get Mustachians enrolling some reporting back on if they're selling many lines on them or not.  We'll crowdsource the knowledge.  :)

I am considering opening new cards for this now, something I wasn't before (and haven't, in the last six months, other than for normal travel hacking--e.g. 2 SW cards for Companion Pass, Chase Sapphire Reserve, etc.).

Does anyone know if the new company can use Business Cards?  I'm guessing not, but it would be nice since I have several with large limits.

None of them do.  Amex cards, and business cards (from any provider) report differently (or not at all), and so the credit score boost typically won't happen. I also have a lot in business (and Amex) credit, but unfortunately it's not usable for this.

Makes me more okay with any cards getting cancelled though.  :)

Thank you, ARS! I've sold 3 tradelines so far, though if I count time spent reading the thread as work, I'm probably down to about $50/hr. :)

Haha, good point.

I don't even want to count my time per hour if I take out the research, typing of info, replying to the thread, etc.  I think it's above minimum wage though.  ;)

I also don't typically have a lot of cards open. One thing I'm looking at is getting a new "everyday" card and then using the old one for selling tradelines. It doesn't really matter from a rewards standpoint if my everyday card is 2 years or 2 months old, but it clearly matters from a tradeline standpoint.

Another thing you can do, if you have a SO that you combine finances with (you did say "we"), is get a new version of the same type of card in their name, and moving the one in your name to tradelines.

That's a good idea--if your "everyday card" is eligible for tradelining... get a new everyday card.  :)

Would I need to open one account for me and one account for my wife? (Some of the cards are in my name and some of the cards are in her name)

Yes, though you can use the same email.  But since it's all taxable income, you'll get separate 1099s.  I opened an account for both myself and my wife (with both companies).

Thanks again, Joe. You really take much of your time researching and writing this information out. I feel as though we are mooching off of your efforts. Hopefully, we'll all be able to return the favor in the future or at least help others in the way that you have helped us.

No worries!  I'd be doing the research anyways for my own purposes and peace of mind for enrolling my own cards, so I might as well share it with the community, too!  :)

Also, little side note: You seem to be recommending Credit Karma a lot.
You have a blog.
As a blogger you can apply for affiliate networks.

I think it gives you only like 25 cents or so per person signing up.

Just saying!

As a rule, I'm not a huge fan of affiliate links.

For example, I have a "Best Real Estate" books thread on this forum that I know many MANY people have bought books from.  But I don't use affiliate links.

This (selling tradelines) is an exception because it did take a lot of work to research and share, and because it doesn't decrease your payments either way (actually with the new company, you'll get paid more in two categories).

I recommend Credit Karma because: It's free. It gets you all the information you need for this. It is a good way to track your credit report changes and score in general.  In other words, I like the product, and am happy to recommend them, but my general feeling of not wanting to use affiliate links means I don't use an affiliate link.  It's also why I feel the need to put the disclaimer multiple times, make sure people understand they don't HAVE to put me as a referral, I'll share the info either way, and if they want to use me, they can.

Maybe I'll rethink that not using other affiliate links at some point, but my default is always to provide a non-affiliate link.  :)

Good to know thought, thanks!  Definitely worth thinking about for the blog, since all those profits go to charity.

Do the issuers auto-mail AU cards to the primary address on file? I know ARS moves around a lot, but if you don't want your family or whoever to deal with all this extra mail, does it make sense to wait until location stationary, or is there not really any extra mail to deal with?

Some issue you a card (to your address, not the AU's, of course), some ask if you want a card issued (like Discover), and you can say no (or uncheck a box).  I always go ahead and have them send one, because I feel like it might be a red flag to NOT get one, but I have zero evidence for this.

I use a mail scanning service called TravelingMailbox, so I just have them shred it for me.  I've never gotten any mail related to an AU except their card (or the occasional one page letter from a bank confirming "We received your request for an AU, and they've been added).  The extra "mail" amounts to about one piece per tradeline.  How much that is for you depends on how many tradelines you sell.  But quite minimal.

How many authorized users does Chase and Capital One allow?

They allow a LOT.  Like, at least 10, maybe more at a time (99?).  You'll just get shut down quickly.  :)

Those are on the lower end, around 2-3 every 2-3 months (versus, say, Barclays where you can do 3-5 a month).

My big question for you arebelspy - are you selling AU spots on your Chase cards? I got scared away from doing this with Chase by Greg at Camp Mustache! :)

I don't, currently.

I did with the first company a few times, then decided it wasn't worth it because I have a ton of UR points I don't want to disappear if the card is cancelled.  If I ever get those spent down, I'd consider it.

I DID use Chase again with this new company to test it out.  They have a "pairing" system, where you add an AU with another of your cards, and then add them with the Chase, so that the Chase posts correctly, and I wanted to try that out to be able to discuss/recommend it to anyone wanting to sell Chase lines.  But then I removed it again after trying that.



I think I got all the questions, but if I missed something, it wasn't on purpose, just a lot to reply to--feel free to just repost a question if I missed it.  :)

EDIT: Thanks secondcor!  Should have refreshed the thread while typing and saved myself some time.  :)

One caveat on Chase: It is per line (card), but more of those leads to more liklihood they'll notice. While I have multiple B of As enrolled, Discover, etc... I would (and did) only use one Chase card, despite having a lot.  What I did is transfer a bunch of my Chase credit onto one (my oldest) Chase card, and only enroll that.  You can use a bunch, but doing that might help sort of balance and mitigate the risk of getting shut down and still wanting to make money with them.

So when signing up, what if I already have 1-2 AUs on the card?  A few I have my wife, or other family member.

Anyone know how to see current AUs on Chase?  It's obvious how to add one, but not how to remove

For Discover, has anyone used the "freeze account" option?

Apologies if this was answered in the old thread.

Similarly, I wouldn't be doing this was a bank that I had a cehcking or savings account (i'd generally advise against having deposit accounts at banks you use credit with anyway.)

Yes.  I think I mentioned it in the old thread, but I had three AU's to add to my USAA card - which already had two AUs from the previous month - and was under the impression that it was best if I added one per call.  So I called, added the first new AU, then hung up.  I called back a second time a day later and added the second new AU, then hung up.  When I called to add the final AU, they put me through to a very distrustful fraud guy who asked me quite a number of authentication questions and asked me why I wanted to add so many AU's.  Eventually, though, they did add the final AU.

I bank and have credit at many banks, but my main checking account plus my insurance products are at USAA.  If they close my USAA credit card, that would be OK.  Closing my bank account or my insurance lines would be more problematic.  I haven't heard of the latter happening, but maybe it could.

Thanks for the info and all the work on research.

If anyone wants some other data-points, wife and I have had 5 cards active on the "old recommendation" since about August, and have had four tradeline sales in that time for roughly $1000 in revenue. Not bad for some clicking around. I had a quick sale on Chase (which was removed after some changes) and no bites since then, wife has had a few more sales on her cards (higher limits and longer credit histories).

I'm thinking about moving some cards to the "new recommendation", including ones that might not be supported, after gathering more information my self.

Yeah, I think a lot of people saw a handful of sales; I think the new company should be able to handle the volume better.  :)

Has anyone tried opening new cards from issuers where you already have an open line, waiting six months, and then consolidating the new card's credit limit into the older card? Essentially a way to fast-track into higher payout tiers in combination with normal CLI requests.

I didn't open specifically for this, but happy coincidence opened one for travel hacking.  After hitting the minimum spend, I immediately transferred all of its credit (minus a token $1000) to an older card enrolled in tradeline sales.

We did discuss this idea previously, and I toyed with opening just for this purpose, but never did.

Has anyone tried opening new cards from issuers where you already have an open line, waiting six months, and then consolidating the new card's credit limit into the older card? Essentially a way to fast-track into higher payout tiers in combination with normal CLI requests.

I didn't open specifically for this, but happy coincidence opened one for travel hacking.  After hitting the minimum spend, I immediately transferred all of its credit (minus a token $1000) to an older card enrolled in tradeline sales.

We did discuss this idea previously, and I toyed with opening just for this purpose, but never did.

i did this with my bofa cards but the 2 cards i got were so i could travel hack then before i canceled i consolidated to the other 2 older cards i have in the system.

I'm thinking about moving some cards to the "new recommendation", including ones that might not be supported

What do you mean by this?
Chase, and cards with limits too small or credit histories too young for "old recommendation" but which would be sold by "new recommendation"

Was targetting Freedom35 but ended up retiring a couple years early. Currently Based in Buffalo for the summer.

Has anyone heard anything back from the new company? I sent them an email two days ago.
