Improve Credit Score

Ready to improve your credit score?

Rounding it up

  • A credit score is a number between 300 and 900 that indicates how good you are at handling debt. It’s important when you want to rent an apartment or open a line of credit.

  • The first step to improving your credit score is knowing it. Use apps like Borrowell to find out your score for free. And don’t worry, checking it won’t hurt it.

  • It’s also crucial you pay your bills on time and limit the number of inquiries into your credit.

  • Try to build a good history by sticking with one or two credit cards for the long haul, and aim to use less than 30% of the limit on these cards.
