It doesn’t matter to us if our customers are doctors or janitors – we can help legal immigrants address the credit challenges they face.
Austin, TX (PRWEB) October 30, 2012
UpgradeUSA, a leading online company focused on helping customers build credit through laptop payment plans, today announced a service that provides legal US immigrants the chance to build a history of good credit.
People from all over the world who move to the US find that when they complete their move, their credit doesn’t move with them, effectively forcing them to start building credit from scratch -- and they quickly discover the US financial system to be daunting and full of hassles.
UpgradeUSA’s laptop payment plans help these people build the future they want in the US by being a company that will help them build better credit, and have every payment reported to US credit bureaus.
“After they work with their immigration lawyers, legal US immigrants often find it challenging to take the next step and build the credit they need to fully participate in the US financial system,” said Jon Weisblatt, founder & CEO, UpgradeUSA. “It doesn’t matter to us if our customers are doctors or janitors – we can help legal immigrants address the credit challenges they face. Our service offers a smart way for legal immigrants to demonstrate that they can make consistent payments over time, which is critical towards building good credit.”
Which Immigrants Can Benefit
People who have legally moved to the US from any country in the world -- including Mexico, Canada, India, China, Japan, etc. – will see benefits from the UpgradeUSA laptop payment plan program. Establishing credit in the US is an important milestone for any family looking to build a future in the US. The UpgradeUSA program is a discreet, online-only program.
In addition, people over 18 who are able to take advantage of the much-discussed DREAM Act will also find UpgradeUSA to be an invaluable tool for them to jump-start their credit in the US as they seek citizenship.
Any legal immigrants interested in UpgradeUSA’s credit building laptop payment program must have a social security number.

The company addresses this through the online leasing of new and refurbished mobile computers, with each monthly customer payment reported to all three major U.S. credit bureaus.
