Credit On Point
If you’re trying to fix your credit score, Credit On Point is a great place to start. You can get started for as little as $99 with the Do It Yourself ebook. One thing that really stands out to us with Credit On Point is how customizable their programs are. You can get started with their self-taught option and see results all by yourself, or you can upgrade to their higher end options to get one-on-one help at a very nominal fee.
Usability: 5.0/5.0 – Entire website works great on both mobile and desktop. Several in-page pop ups appear on certain pages, but they are very easy to close out of on both mobile and desktop.
Product Options: 5.0/5.0 – If you need help with credit disputes, try the Help Me Program for $199. If you’re in deep waters and just can’t get out by yourself, the Rescue Me Program offers everything the other two programs offers plus dispute letters and other resources to help you fix your credit.
Security: 5.0/5.0 – SSL (https) is used on any page asking for personal information. Also, their payment gateway is encrypted.

The Complete Debt Relief Manual
For those who are serious about eliminating debt, this manual will get you started. That said, it is also great for those who are familiar with their options when it comes to debt solutions but still need a game plan to actually do what they know they need to do.
Usability: 4.0/5.0 – The website is not mobile responsive, so while it does show up on mobile it isn’t as easy to read and navigate. However, the ebook itself is laid out well and is easy to navigate.
Product Options: 4.5/5.0 – This single manual includes guidance for a wide range of problems, including debt elimination, budgeting, building credit, dealing with credit disputes, and more. The only reason we gave this a 4.5 is because their training is only available in PDF form to read, not in audiobook or video format.

Customer Support: 3.0/5.0 – Support is only available by email. However, if you have any payment-related problems, you can contact the payment processor Clickbank in case the author does not respond.
