Raise Your Credit Score

If you're looking into buying a house anytime soon, then you've probably heard the word "credit score" more times than you can count. Trouble is-- not all of us have the best scores and that can mean high interest rates on loans or sometimes no loan at all. For anything you want that involves a credit score, here are a few tips to increase yours quickly!

  1. Pay All Bills On Time
    Before you pay anyone, it should be yourself first. Most experts will tell you this and they are 100% right, but it should only apply once you can pay yourself AND your bills. You should never let the colors on the bills change and credit scores are a great reason to avoid this with a passion. A great way to avoid late fees is to set up automatic payments with your online bank, if they offer it. Services like this generally range from $5-10/mo and are well worth the peace of mind they bring. By the way, payment history makes up the bulk of your credit score at around 35%.

  2. The 30 Percent Rule
    The rule states that you should never let your credit card balance go over 30% of the limit and also about 30% of your credit score depends on how much credit you have access to versus how much of a balance you actually have on it. Personally, I never use credit cards but for those of us that do-- it's important to remember that these should only be used for money we already have. If not, make sure you pay your debts are all paid off on time. Don't ever pay the minimum, either!

  3. Don't Make Your Credit Cards History
    Credit history makes up about 15% of your credit score, and the longer you have a credit account, the better your score will be. Always keep a credit history of at least a few years!

  4. Quality, Not Quanitity
    Having a few credit cards with a good history and no late payments is golden compared to a bunch of credit cards with no history. The latter indicates that you are in need of credit and are headed down a treacherous path of debt consolidation. Also, pay attention to how many times your credit report is requested. Around 10% of your credit score depends on this very factor and less is better in this case.

  5. Secured Credit = Good
    Loans such as mortgages, car loans, etc. are considered secured because they involve a good source of collateral (usually the object that you're taking the loan out for). Unsecured loans like credit card debts, student loans, etc. are like poison because they involve a variable collateral (your income). Make sure you get rid of unsecured loans as soon as possible. The type of credit you use also makes up about 10% of your credit score.
Use these tips and you'll be sure to increase your credit score and banks will love you. Good luck!

Good day, nice blog, good info!
A secured credit card is a great way to build up credit if you have a bad or non-existent credit rating.

Secured Credit Cards For People With Bad Credit are a great way to establish or re-establish credit. With a secured credit card, your credit limit matches the security deposit you provide. With good payments you can be considered for unsecured credit card offers.

Hope this resource will be useful for your blog and your many readers.
Have a super day!

Everybody must be noticing that the neobux ads load very slowly and sometimes they do not load at all as mentioned by some members. There is a little trick which will certainly make the neobux ads to load fast. Many of you might be knowing it but for those who do not know it they can try it and make the ads load faster. Here is the trick:
After you click on the ad, when the ad page opens, scroll down to the bottom of the ad page and click on some link on that page and the ad will start to load immediately.i.e the timer will start. If it does not start, then once again click on some other link in that page and this time the ad will definitely start to load

Imagine you have 2000 rented referrals - that’s $1000/month..Not bad, huh? Gaining referrals need a little patience though.
