How to improve your credit score

Rounding it up

  • A credit score is a number that ranges from 300 to 900 that affects whether you can get a loan, mortgage, or line of credit.

  • Improving your credit score takes time, but you can start by researching what affects your credit score.

  • Also make sure you stay punctual with your bills, refrain from taking out the credit you don’t really need, and pay off any debt.

  • Stay smart about your budgeting and savings, so you’re more likely to pay off debt and less likely to take out credit.
