Credit Score Myth

Paying off or making the minimum payment on your credit card each month is only the start of establishing good credit.

Another facter that accounts for 30% of your credit score is “utilization” or the balance on your statement in relation to your credit limit.

If at all possible you want to keep this below 25%.  For example, if you have a $1,000 credit
limit you want to make sure that the balance on your monthly statement does not exceed
$250.00.

Pay attention to your balance in relation to your credit limit and if it exceeds 25% consider making additional payments prior to your lenders billing cycle.
