How to Improve Your Credit Score

Knowing how to improve credit score is almost like holding the key to happiness in life. A good credit score will give you access to better deals almost every time you make a major purchase on credit. Fortunately, all it takes to start improving your credit score is to really understand how a credit score works.
​ 

What is a credit score?

​ 
A credit score is a number that summarizes your credit history. It’s an assessment of risk that loaners take into consideration before they allow you to purchase something on the promise that you’ll pay it back. If your credit history shows that you are a wise spender who doesn’t stretch themselves thin and reliably pays all their bills on time, your credit score will benefit.

How can I improve my credit score?

​ 
With that in mind, there are three major things you can do to improve your credit score other than simply having a credit history:
  • Pay all your bills on time.
  • Don’t open too many credit lines or accounts.
  • Minimizing outstanding debt. If you have access to $3,000 worth of credit through your credit card, it doesn’t mean you should always be using all of that credit. Try never to use more than 1/3rd of your available credit.
With these tips, you’ll be improving your credit score in no time!
