Vijay’s classic GIFs 2007-2011 – 322


Yes it’s a stupid banner ad for credit score checking, but hey, it has winking smileys and colour-coded buttons, well I liked it!

Something new has landed at ClearScore


A GIF from a ClearScore email I received in July 2017, promoting their rejigged mobile phone app. There’s an iPhone showing the app in use. It looks very cool, although I haven’t downloaded it myself… yet. Notice also the subtly colour shifting gradients at the bottom of the GIF. Oddly satisfying.

Climbing the credit score mountain


Another email GIF from credit scoring company ClearScore, which I received about two weeks ago. At one point, my credit score was not so great, thanks to debts taken on for family members and other financial issues not of my own making. But now, I’m steadily getting closer to the summit (of a good score) and have even taken out a credit card recently, an act that was impossible in those dark days.

A clear timeline


This cool GIF came to me via email from the credit score checking site ClearScore. I have been looking a lot at my credit score lately as I am planning to eventually get a mortgage, so need to have that all in order. ClearScore emailled about a new Timeline on their site, an online tool showing your credit history. Here a user demonstrates the new facility on their iPad.

My flexible friend


Today in the post I got my new Lloyds Bank Platinum Mastercard. I don’t really need a credit card, but using one once or twice a month will help boost my credit score. This is the first one I’ve had in about 6 years.
