Hi. We're Self. We're here to help you build credit and savings and reach your financial goals.

It all started with some missed payments. CEO James Garvey founded Self in 2015 after making a mistake with automatic payments on his credit card. By the time he caught it, his credit score had tanked. In searching for a way to rebuild his credit, he saw some of the challenges faced by the more than 100 million Americans with low or no credit.

"To get credit, you need to have credit. It's a catch-22, and the system is set up against you," James says. So he created a solution that works regardless of your credit history.

Instead of dwelling on scores, we focus on what you aspire toward. Whether it’s being a Home Builder, a Queen Builder, a Car Builder, or a Life Builder, Self is here to help you make it possible.

There are other ways to fix your credit. This company charged a ridiculous amount of interest. It took 2 years to save up $500 just for them to tell me it will be another two weeks before they send me my money. I never missed or was late not one payment. You would think they would offer a better situation with better interest rates. Leave these people and their high interest rates alone. They prey on people with bad credit who have little to no idea on how to fix it. I will not return.

Joined Self in 2020 to help my credit score for home purchase. Getting a. Punt was seemless and the monthly payment was very reasonable. I've completed my 2 year agreement and have been given a date for fund to be redeposited into my account.

I will consider using Self in the future.

Why Choose?

Home ownership

Security on my credit card is horrible. It was breached twice. I did self 3 times no one contacted me so I was just paying a monthly bill no knowing my credit card was shut off and I have a bill of $700+. I told 3 friends and my wife who all have self now what I just found out I do not like it all all.

why Trust Verified Reviews?

Verified Reviews are real, authentic reviews collected from actual paying customers, using Shopper Approved's Verified Review Platform. When reviews are Verified by Shopper Approved, you know that you can trust them to make better buying decisions.

Unverified Reviews on the other hand, are reviews collected by Open Review platforms that allow anyone to leave a review, without any validation or proof of purchase. Unfortunately, most reviews you read online are Unverified Reviews, and can't be trusted.

As a consumer, here's how you can tell the difference:

Verified Reviews from Verified Review Platforms like Shopper Approved, have much higher review counts and higher overall Star ratings, because they attempt to collect reviews from every single paying customer.

Unverified Reviews from Open Review Platforms, tend to have much lower review counts and more negative Star ratings, because people with bad experiences are primarily those who leave reviews. This often creates a misleading, inaccurate portrayal of a companies true reputation.

So, when searching for Verified Reviews, look for the name you know you can trust. Shopper Approved.
