3 Credit Tips
First, keep all of your credit cards below of 50% of the credit limit, as credit report agencies will consider this to be a maxed-out card. Even better, try to keep them below 30% if you can.
Second, always pay your bills on time. A 30 day late payment can negatively alter your credit score between 60 and 110 points. So pay your bills on time.
Third, order a free online credit report. Third party credit reporting agencies and credit card companies often give incorrect information as to what your score actually is. Be sure you check your credit report for any discrepancies.
