Savvy Saver 05/15/19: The Top Way To Build Good Credit
Budget Tip Of The Week: Build good credit by simply paying off your credit card bills every month.
Boosting your credit score and building your credit experience is as easy as signing up for a new credit card and paying it off every month. You can start by looking at the credit cards that your bank offers, to sign up for one that can be easily connected to your checking account for quick payments. Once you have the card, start small by paying for little purchases like gas or coffee. Then, pay it off on time and in full to build good credit. [Swirled]
