Take a deep dive into your score
Whether you plan to make a big purchase in the near future or take out a loan, it's important to think about and understand your credit score. Taking the time to familiarize yourself with how credit scores are calculated is the first step in getting a strong score.
- Consistently making payments on time can help boost your score
- Capacity. This is one of the areas where the less you use of your total available credit, the better. If you get close to maxing out all your credit cards or lines of credit, it tanks your score, even if you’re making your payments on time
- Length of credit. Establishing and following good credit habits over a long period of time can help raise your score
- Opening new credit cards (this includes retail credit cards) has a short-term negative effect on your score, so don’t open a whole bunch at once!
