Your credit score is important. Agree or disagree with it, but your credit score dictates a lot of what happens (or doesn’t happen) to you regarding finances. The better the score … the better lending terms you will get.
If your score isn’t where you want it to be … here are some ways you can boost it:
You’re entitled to one free credit report directly from the three bureaus (Equifax, Trans Union and Experian) per year. I recommend getting a copy every year. However, the free report does not include your score. You'll need to pay a little extra for that. If your score is below a 720 … start working on improving it. While only about 40 percent of people have a score above 720, you could be one of them by practicing some of the things listed above.
