Credit Card Glossary: Terms and Definitions
A person with prime credit has a credit record that is strong enough to be offered good or excellent terms by someone extending credit. People with subprime credit get worse deals offered, if they get any at all. There is no one exact score that divides prime credit and subprime credit consumers; it depends on the product and each creditor sets its own rules.
