10 Secret Mean Girl Tips

Holidays
icon/user/avatar/20 Created with Sketch. By MyBirdie.biz

What is Mean Girls Day? Mean Girls Day was made in honor of the famous movie and drama and novela and romance and love story. Why October 3rd? The famous scene and quote from Cady, “On October 3rd, he asked me what day it was.” The fetch-est movie is one of the biggest hits of the 2000s.    Ten Secret Mean Girl Tips 2020 isn’t a year we’re going to forget any time soon. With that being said, Rodeo Auto has put a list of the top 10 things you should do in honor of 2020’s Mean Girl Day. This list will apply to the rules and precautions of COVID-19 so that you won’t have to go out of your way to find out alternatives!   Wear Pink. Like, duh. What’s a Mean Girls Day if you don’t wear pink?! Pink lip gloss, make up look, shirt, shoes, wristwatch, tie, anything! You don’t have to go full out. Just make sure you incorporate pink into your day!    Time Reverse Saturday Yes, I DID just make that name up in my head. Clever, isn’t it? Anyways, vintage is SO in 2020. Wear plaid, cute tight crop tops, polka dots, baggy jeans, skirt, sneakers! Whatever you want, wear it! In honor of the movie, reverse and go back to 2004 style. It’s fetch.    Cheese Fries Don’t ruin your all-carb diet and go to Taco Bell. With the right cheese, right fries, and right bacon一wait, no bacon. All-carb. Right. Cheese fries are good, but you’re always allowed to do what you want! Load the fries with bacon, ham, chicken, whatever you desire!    Bake A Cake. “I just wish we could all get along like we used to in middle school. I wish that I could bake a cake out of rainbows and smiles and we’d all eat it and be happy.” Make a cake! Eat it whilst watching Mean Girls! Everyone deserves to eat a cake and be happy.    Go online shopping. Get into your virtual cars, losers. We’re going shopping. Window shopping or not, we WILL be shopping this year on October 3rd. Being on Amazon or Shein or Walmart or… Walmart… is so fun when you’re not thinking of a price. I just add a wish list to my account and let my heart soar… Oh. Just me? Okay. Anyways, shop ‘til you drop!   Plan Your Halloween Costume Halloween is too close. Who cares if we’re quarantined by then?! We all know that some of us are still gonna go out with a few close family members or friends (unless, of course, you honor quarantine correctly). Maybe you can go as the inventor of the Toaster Strudel.   Plan Your Christmas Choreo Christmas is near. Since no one is gonna see us anyways, why wouldn’t we crank out the tunes and learn the choreo in Mean Girls? That’s in case you haven’t memorized it since the year it came out and perform it religiously in your bedroom in front of the mirror.    Learn Vietnamese “You should’ve heard what Trang was saying about you…” Words from the wise Gretchen. She suddenly spoke fluent Vietnamese at the end of the movie. She was amazing… from an English point of view. Pick up the glamorous language! It’s interesting and fun and really helps your IQ, whether you need it or not.    Ask someone close why they’re white. “Oh my god, Karen, you can’t just ask people why they’re white.” Uh, yes you can. Do it nicely though. Please. Don’t do it to a stranger!    Rodeo Auto helps you to feel glamorous.  With Rodeo Auto, the staff makes everyone feel glamorous, Mean Girls Day, or not. With low prices and a low to fair down payment, Rodeo Auto helps you better your credit as well as keep a nice car! When you buy a car with Rodeo Auto, there are benefits. You get plus sides, like free oil changes… details… tire changes? I’m not sure. It’s great though!

Informative
icon/user/avatar/20 Created with Sketch. By MyBirdie.biz

Rodeo Auto is a dealership of great strengths, but how are we sure their cars are reliable for use and buy? Read more to find out.    Who is Car Fox? Car Fox is a spokesperson and fox that represents Carfax. He appears in commercials for Carfax, and his signature saying or motto is, “Show Me the CARFAX.” He has years of experience that involves used cars. Car Fox has a quick sense of humor and helps people with buying used cars.    What is Carfax? Carfax is a company that gives customers a detailed inspection and review of cars, from car crashes to repairs. The company ensures that people know the vehicle that they’re about to purchase. Basically, if you ever want any vehicle, you should definitely check out Carfax. The inspections tell you if there are any accident and damage indicators, flood damage history, number of owners, vehicle uses, and total loss accident history.    When does Rodeo Auto come into play with Carfax? That’s a good question. Rodeo Auto has a very special aspect to it.  Rodeo Auto ensures that customers know exactly where their car has been. This is one of the many reasons you should buy with Rodeo Auto. Along with giving a full history, the payments Rodeo Auto sets up can better your credit! Good credit, bad credit, no credit, Rodeo Auto helps raise your score.    How can I see the Carfax report?  On the Rodeo Auto websites, there is a logo on the thumbnail of each car that says “Carfax Vehicle History Reports.” At the bottom of the “Additional Photos” section, there is a link with the Carfax logo. Click on it, and it takes you Carfax’s website. On this website, there’s a report of the car. If you want to know more about pricing and monthly payments on the car, make sure to call the Rodeo Auto location closest to you. We guarantee that Rodeo Auto staff will take care of you.    Every single car on the lot? Every single car on the lot. Every single car on the lot of every Rodeo Auto location is Carfax inspected. Every. Single. Car. Amazing right? Rodeo Auto makes sure that every single car on the lot is ready to be sold to customers. The dealership has full reports on every single car. If you happen to stumble across a car that isn’t Carfax approved (which you won’t), call the location to get the report instead. The cars on the site might not have a link, but Rodeo Auto only pushes out cars that have been approved, so don’t worry.    Did you know foxes have a lot in common with cats, despite looking like a dog? Anyways, no need to get into politics. Go ahead and check out Rodeo Auto’s website to see for yourself if every car is Carfax approved.

Top 7 Eco-Friendly and Gas Saving Cars

Informative
icon/user/avatar/20 Created with Sketch. By MyBirdie.biz

You might be struggling a bit finding a car that’s suitable for your needs. In this blog, we tell not the newest, not the fanciest, but the cars we think are gas-saving, power-saving, and money-saving cars!     Gas Saving We all know that gas is a huge expense from a month to month basis, so it’s best to purchase a car that doesn’t run a bunch of gas. On top of spending less money on gas, you’ll also help with the environment.    2015 Ford Focus The 2015 Ford Focus has a 1.0 liter and Eco-Boost engine! Fun fact, this car was named “International Engine of the Year” until 2018! This is a nice, sturdy, small sedan that saves gas and has an EcoBoost unit. EcoBoost effectively helps to save gas in the long term run. With leather upholstery, heated front seats, and a power-adjustable driver’s seat, the features on this car also include a USB port, Bluetooth, and a SYNC voice-control system. This car is a must-have if you’re looking for something simple yet smart.   2016 Ford Focus Another Ford! It’s a really reliable company (as much as we wish, this blog isn’t sponsored, we promise). This car has a 2.0-liter engine with an electronically controlled transmission and a battery-powered electric motor. This car gives 188 horsepower! It’s great for money and gas savers! This sedan seats five people with leather seats, although the front seats are much more spacious than the back. Competitors that sit in the back will fight for the outside seat rather than the middle. The car’s overall comfy for small parties!    2017 Kia Niro Here we have an SUV for big parties or families. We didn’t forget! This 2017 model has a great fuel economy with a 4 cylinder, 1.6-liter engine. This bad baby has 146 horsepower and 195 lb-ft of torque! The interior of this SUV has seats for five people, which are heated and ventilated in the front for parents and/or chaperones. With a leather-wrapped steering wheel that’s also heated, the 2017 Kia Niro is a comfy and classic SUV that’s just right for the family!   2018 Nissan Kicks This trusty Nissan has a 1.6-liter 4-cylinder engine with 125 horsepower. This car seats five people with two rows. The front and rear seats are fairly spacious, as the rear can fit two adults easily but is a bit cramped for three. With heated front seats and a stable leather steering wheel, this car has nice and smart features such as not one, not two, but three USB ports for big parties, Bluetooth, and a 7-inch touch screen! The touch screen is compatible with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto! The subcompact SUV is perfect for tech-savvy families.   Eco-Friendly Cars Eco-friendly cars use less oil than traditional cars. Electric cars don’t use any oil at all, while non-electric use much less oil than regular cars. If you’re an Earth Day fanatic, these few cars might be the go-to for you.    2018 Kia Soul EV The 2018 Kia Soul EV is the first electric car on our list. This 2018 model has an electric engine with a 109 horsepower score. The front seats of this car have heated and ventilated features with cloth seats, although leather seats are also available. Five people can sit in this hatchback, and they can enjoy themselves with electronic features such as an AUX port, an MP3 player, and a wireless cellphone hookup for a smooth navigation trip. The driver can feel safe with a backup camera, heated mirrors, steering wheel controls, keyless entry, and a vehicle anti-theft system to allow you to sleep soundly.    2017 Ford Fusion Energi This five-seater hybrid sedan can plug in and charge fully in 7 hours with 120 volts or 2 ½ hours with 240 volts. It can charge in your seat! If you forgot to charge it, you can gas it up with a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine with 188 horsepower! The interior of this car is covered in black leather, and not a dark gray, like most cars these years. With parking assist, heated mirrors, and remote keyless entry, the car is ensured to make drivers feel safe and comfortable for an easier ride. For a smooth, calm ride, there’s an AUX port and Apple CarPlay along with Android Auto. The sedan is a game-changer for sure.   2019 Toyota Camry Hybrid With a 2.5-liter, 4 cylinder engine with 208 horsepower combined with a hybrid engine, the first and last Toyota on our list is a Camry Hybrid! As the car comes with either cloth or leather upholstery, heated front seats, roomy seats in both the front and back, it’s comfortable for drivers. With a 7-inch touch screen, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, this car also comes with Amazon Alexa, Siri Eyes Free, and a USB port. Keyless Entry and Bluetooth make it simple for the driver to get on the road quickly.    Remember, these are just a handful of good cars that are easy on gas and the environment. If you’re interested in any one of these cars, check-in with Rodeo Auto’s inventory page to see if they have a car in stock for you. Why should you purchase a car with Rodeo Auto? The dealership works with your needs and will help better your credit! It’s a win-win. Get a car for a price in your range, and also boost your credit score. That’s it for today’s list! Enjoy your day, night, morning!    This has been MyBirdie.biz, signing off!

How Can I Fix My Credit?

Informative
icon/user/avatar/20 Created with Sketch. By MyBirdie.biz

Last week, we talked about checking our credit scores. If you missed last week’s blog, click here to see how you can sign up to see your credit scores today. This week, we’re going into the world of low credit scores, and how you can revive yours! Alas, even the worst credit scores can be fixed. Let’s see how.      Check Your Credit Reports for Errors While we showed you how to take a look at your credit scores, we didn’t show you how to get your credit report. Let’s see how.    Every major credit bureau (Equifax, TransUnion, and Equifax) has to give you one free credit report per year. When you space it out, you can get one credit report every four months. You can request a free credit report here, or through the phone: +1-877-322-8228, or by mail, with a request form linked here.    If you ever need a copy of your credit report, you can buy them straight from the credit bureau. Their copies cost $1-$11.    Now onto checking your reports. Whenever you get your free credit report, you must keep it close and safe and also scan it closely. Check closely for:    - Wrong personal info - Wrong accounts - Unlisted/missing accounts that should be on your report - Wrong public records like foreclosures or bankruptcies - Account information that isn’t right (an account being open when it’s not) - Multiplied accounts (same accounts twice or more) - Data errors - Delinquencies or derogatory marks - Fraudulent activity - Wrong inquiries    Simple mistakes dent your credit score a whole bunch. People who have fixed little mistakes have their credit score go up by a big chunk!  When there are errors in your credit report, your score can and will be affected. Bad credit score means no loans, no big purchases, etc.    If you find a mistake of any kind on your credit report, you need to check to see if the same mistake is on your other two free reports. It’s important to have your credit report in check so you have the best score that you can get.    What To Do if You Found A Mistake on Your Credit Report When you find a mistake on your credit report, you have to fix them of course. Credit bureaus legally have to try to fix the mistakes on your credit report. You can request them to fix your credit report through email, phone, or online.   Along with contacting the business directly, you should also tell the creditor or lender what the mistake was on your report. They should be able to fix it on their end, which should update your credit report to the main bureaus. Most of the time you should get a response to your problem anywhere from 30-45 days.    Experian: Click here to do it online. Call 800-916-8800 to request through the phone. Mail to Experian, P.O. Box 4500, Allen, TX, 75013   Equifax: Click here to do it online. Call 866-349-5191 to request through the phone. Mail to Equifax Information Services LLC, P.O. Box 740256, Atlanta, GA, 30374-0256   TransUnion: Click here to do it online. Call 800-916-8800 Mail to TransUnion Customer Solutions, P.O. Box 2000, Chester, PA, 19016-2000   Make Sure to Pay off Old Debt! Whenever your credit is bad or off, you also have to take a look into late payments, accounts, overdue balances, etc. As long as your payments aren’t 30 days past the due date, they’re not considered late to the credit bureaus. If they’re later than 30 days, they’re considered late, and creditors and bureaus will raid your credit score and lower it by a ton.    The longer you put off a late payment, the lower your credit score will turn out. Late payments can stay on your credit report for years and years, so it’s very important you pay late or past due accounts. Make sure to keep track of your credit reports and pay off late due payments! Even if they’re late! Better late than never!   Open a Credit Card Opening a new credit will help to improve your credit. A new credit card means you have a bigger amount of credit, meaning your credit utilization will lower. The smaller your ratio, the better your credit score will turn out.    Accounts that have been open for longer and have a good payment history are good for your credit score. Keep old accounts with good payment history open. You build credit age, which is good for your credit score in the long run.    Pay Your Bills On Time! When you meet your deadlines for monthly payments, you show your creditors and future lenders that you’re responsible with money. ALL of your bills need to be paid on time, whether you’re trying to fix credit or not. It’s very important since these things are the main components your bureaus look at when giving you a credit score.    While these steps need to be taken, you can also take bigger steps towards improving. Rodeo Auto is a car business that will improve your credit. You can purchase a car with little to no credit and they’ll find a way to help improve your score.    Next week, we’re going into detail on how purchasing a car will help your credit score! Stay tuned to fix your credit and get a new car while you’re at it!   Signing off, MyBirdie.biz!

  Last week, we took a look at credit and what it is. If you missed last week’s blog, you can find it here. This week, we’re talking about how to see if you have a good credit score. Good credit scores can help you purchase a good car, house, or credit card and loans. To check if you have good credit, keep reading.   What are the credit bureaus? You’re probably wondering, “Who is it that even makes sure if my credit is good or not?” Well, there are three major credit bureaus that give you a credit score from 300-850. The three reliable credit bureaus are Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion.    What is a good credit score? If your credit score is 580-670, you’re looking at an okay score. Credit scores around 670-740 are considered good. Just good, not great. A great credit score is 740-800. An extraordinary, or A++, is an 800-850 score. The average credit scores are between 600 and 750.   How can I find out my credit score? So! Now that you know what a good credit score is, let’s check out yours! To see your credit scores, go to Credit Karma. You can sign up for free. You have to enter your full name, address, birth date, and the last four digits of your social security number. If you’re worried about entering your full social security number, you shouldn’t be. The website is protected by using 128-bit encryption.    When you’re done entering the information, click “Next,” and the website takes you to the registration page. This is to confirm your identity. An example of some questions might be, “Who is the credit provider for this account?”, etc.    After you’re done filling out the information, click the “Get my score.” button and it will take you to a dashboard. Your credit scores should be displayed now! Congrats! You know your credit score! Your credit scores might be different since both companies have different formulas to make your score.    Your Experian score will not appear on the screen. This is because Experian doesn’t allow you to see your credit score for free on Credit Karma. When you click on the scores, TransUnion and Equifax will let you dig deeper into your score.    If your score goes down, you can click the “See What’s Changed” button. This will tell you why your credit score changed. Whether it went up or down, you can see through the list of your accounts and see details.    If you find your credit score isn’t exactly where you want it to be, don’t worry! There are ways to boost your credit. Companies like Experian Boost and Self can help you get to the score you want.    Rodeo Auto is a car company that can get your credit fixed, too. If you have little to no credit, you can still get approved for a vehicle. Rodeo Auto helps you gain credit with monthly payments designed specifically for you.

What is Credit?

Informative
icon/user/avatar/20 Created with Sketch. By MyBirdie.biz

Credit is tricky and hard to understand. Read this blog to get an in-depth explanation of credit scores and how you can determine yours.    What is credit? Okay, okay. You’re looking to find an explanation on what credit is because you need to buy a car, house, apartment, or any big/important financial decisions. Understanding credit is something we all need to do, it’s famously inevitable. So what is credit?    Credit is the ability to be loaned money/goods or services in the sense that you will pay it back later. Service providers, merchants, lenders, and other businesses grant you credit based on your history of payments and whether you paid back whatever you borrowed. If you are “creditworthy,” or worthy of their trust, you are said to have good credit.    How does credit work? Creditors take a look at your credit history, which is your record of borrowing and repaying your loans. Your credit history is organized and summed down into files called ‘credit reports.’ This is how they make a decision on whether to give you credit. This credit report is made by three credit companies: TransUnion, Experian, and Equifax. Banks, credit unions, credit card companies, etc., all give information to these three companies so that they can compile your credit report.    Your credit report has information in it such as the following: How many credit cards you have as well as how much you can withdrawal/borrow and your outstanding balances (the remaining debt you owe). The number of loans you’ve taken out and how much you’ve paid back. Whether you paid your bills on time, late, or if you’ve missed them.  Really big financial setbacks such as repossessions (when your loans are taken back, such as your house, car, land, or personal property), foreclosures on your mortgage (when your mortgage servicer will take your home, which is the collateral that secured the loan), and bankruptcies.   When they analyze your history, they estimate your credit by giving it a 3 digit score. Your credit score is a representation of your credit history. This way it’s easier to interpret and understand. Credit scoring models calculate your credit score by analyzing the information on your credit report. Credit scoring models like FICO Score and VantageScore calculate your credit scores differently. They give higher scores to people who are more statistically creditworthy.    Are there different types of credit? Yes! There are four types.  With revolving credit, you’re given a maximum borrowing limit. You can make charges/withdrawals up to this limit. You have to pay a minimum payment every month, or the amount that you pay can be a part of your outstanding charges up to the full thing. If you make a little payment, you can carry on with the remainder of your balance, or revolve the debt.  Charge cards are rare. They’re much like credit, but they don’t force you to carry a balance. You have to pay back all the charges fully every month.  Service credit is your contract with your providers such as gas or electric, cable or internet, cellular phone companies, gym memberships, etc. They’re all credit agreements. They give you these services in exchange for payments after. Credit scoring systems like FICO Score or VantageScore can include your service payments into your credit score, but they’re not always reported to the credit bureaus. The Experian Boost program allows you to share your utility and cellphone payments so they can boost your credit scores based on Experian data.  Installment credit is a loan for an exact amount of money that you have to pay back. Repaying this loan may include interest and fees. You have to pay equal payments each month over a period of time. These payments are called installments. Car and student loans are some examples of installment credit.   Why do we need good credit? You need good credit for big financial purchases such as buying a car or a house. Higher credit scores mean better interest rates and terms on credit cards or loans. Most credit card companies save better deals for people with higher scores. Here are some other people/businesses that also take a look at your credit: Landlords Insurance companies Utility companies Employers Reasons including identification and laws It’s important to check if you have good credit and to know how to fix it if you don’t. Sign up for Credit Karma to check your credit score today. We hope this blog broke down the basics of credit!   MyBirdie.biz Team, signing off!
