What is a credit score & what are the basics?
→ The credit score is calculated based on the data that is provided by the lending institutions (typically banks, NBFCs) to the bureaus (typically CRIF, Experian).
→ A credit score indicates your creditworthiness to potential lenders such as banks & mortgage lenders. It indicates how responsible you are likely to be in paying off your loans.
→ Each credit score has a different scale: For example, CRIF has a range of 300-900 while Experian has a range of 300-850.
→ A score of 700+ on CRIF & Experian is considered to be good.
→ A higher credit score is an indicator of good financial behaviour.

What all credit scores are shown on CRED?
There are 4 credit bureaus in India - Experian, Equifax, CRIF and CIBIL. CRED can showcase your CRIF, Experian and Equifax credit scores and helps track these credit scores individually.
What all credit cards are supported on CRED?
SBI, HDFC, Axis, Kotak, Standard chartered, American express, Yes bank, HSBC, IndusInd, RBL, Bank of Baroda, Kotak Mahindra, Bank of India plus all VISA, MasterCard, American Express and Discover credit cards.
Will using a credit card hurt my credit score?
As long as you make credit card bill payments within the "grace period" of 25-30 days, you don't have to pay extra. If you go longer, though, you'll have to pay interest — a percentage of the money you owe — on top of what you borrowed. Defaulting on your credit card payments could negatively hurt your credit score, so make sure you make the credit card bill payments on time.
Will using CRED help improve my credit score?
CRED will help you make bill payments on time by reminding you and getting your personalised insights on your financial habits to help you improve your credit score over time. If you apply the actionable insights, yes, you'll be able to improve your credit score like millions of other members.

"If a ship's parts are replaced one by one, does the ship remain the same, or does it become something completely new?"
Is this just an 'update' or an entirely new way to experience CRED?

Ratings and Reviews
A must for credit card users
I have been using credit card since 2002. I have been a defaulter in many months in past and paid huge fines and interests. I had to take personal loans to pay credit card bills. What was the reason? I was not able to keep track of my credit card bills and was unaware of how much I was paying on bank charges. I find CRED as the most essential app for anybody who has credit card. It not only reminds, shows you the charges and expenses by category but also rewards you for paying the bills through the app. Most interestingly you can just pay in few clicks through the app. Good job guys. Very intuitive design and you have customer in mind. The way this app is designed is very artistic and unconventional. Keep it up.
Issue ticket closed without resolving
I don’t think the support time has time to resolve the issue, may be that’s the reason they don’t give it back on-time or no proper response. I had payment related issue during the initial times of Cred, but dint get any proper response & so payment took time to get credited to my card. April-21, I had issue with the reward points also, I made a total payment of 3500 much before the due date, but the point raised with just 600 when compared my last month’s. (I have a screenshot for the same) And when raised my first ticket for help, they said that was correct & I requested them check again, but in vein. Being, the issue unresolved I thought of raising another ticket, & to my astonishment I found my previous ticket closed without any response. So I raised another ticket, asking for the proper explanation & response to the primary issue. Even to this day I am yet to get a reply & this time it makes me feel weird on finding that the second ticket was also closed, without explanation for the closing of first one & proper response for the primary issue. I use not to check my card statement believing this CRED app, but now I doubt about the amount that’s been debited from my account towards card payment. Whether the same amount has been credit to the card or not...? I need to go through all the statements since the time I started making payment over CRED.

Doesn’t let you delete your account!
For an app handling so much of your sensitive data, they fail to provide any trust in you considering how much they’ll try to distract you and prevent you from deleting account from their databases. I didn’t even make a payment, and wanted to delete my account and had to go through a frustrating 30 minutes of a unnecessarily roundabout chatbot, and a customer support executive who replies once in 5 minutes to get to know that the issue has been “escalated” and will be looked at in the next 5-7 working days. What happens if that time period passes and nothing has progressed? That remains to be seen.
It is unacceptable that there’s no direct and transparent account deletion feature and no actual customer support on this application. They stick a FAQ and hope that you never actually try to escalate issues with them.
Please don’t waste your time with this app as their business model will be to sell your financial data to advertisers. If not that, they will use your money which you’ve given them for their private investments in the 2 day period before your credit card account actually receives the money.
