Open a HELOC with no obligation to use it.

A HELOC is a revolving credit line with a certain draw period followed by a repayment period on any remaining balance. Some people like to open a HELOC account with no immediate plans to use it. If an emergency arises, you can borrow from your HELOC at a lower interest rate than most other types of consumer debt, such as a credit card.
