I'm looking for ways to build up my credit score. Will paying for car insurance boost my credit?

Unfortunately, it does not. Insurance companies don’t report to the credit bureau. You’ll have to employ other methods of building up your credit, such as opening the right credit card and making on-time payments on your other bills.

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
