Learn what you can do to get a higher score.

Your credit score determines what kind of credit you get. It determines what risk category you are in and how much interest you will pay. Pay credit card interest on a car over 4 years. You only get to drive one car but you pay for 4 or 5 vehicles.

 

Your score can also determine what kind of job you will get and what kind of home you will live in. Even if you are content with living in an apartment, the nicer apartments run a credit report on you and may not approve you to live there.
