656 Credit Score – Most Popular?

Building your credit is easily one of THE most important things you can do to improve your financial future. However, these 5 common mistakes will RUIN your credit score – this is how to avoid it. Enjoy! Add me on Instagram: GPStephan

First: Missing a payment or by paying it off late.
This is probably the most detrimental mistake you could make, because your payment-history makes up 35% of your overall credit score. And what’s even worse, is that your payment history is stays on your credit report for up to seven years.

So when it comes to preventing this from happening, here are two things I always do:
First, I ALWAYS make sure to have auto-pay enabled to make the minimum payment. This way, NO MATTER WHAT, I’ll always at LEAST pay off the minimum amount I owe, on time.

Second, I use a combination of Mint.com and CreditKarma.com to keep track of all my credit cards and credit card balances every few weeks. If I see something with a balance, I’ll always just go in and pay it off immediately so I don’t forget about doing it later. This usually takes a few minutes every other week to manage, it’s fairly simple.

Second: Maxing out your credit card
This is because 30% of your credit score is calculated by what’s called your credit utilization – this is the amount of credit you have available to you, versus how much of it you actually use. So when it comes to avoiding this mistake, thankfully it’s fairly easy to do in a few steps:

First, try to keep your credit utilization under 30%. This means for every $1000 of credit that you’re given, you keep a balance under $300 at all times.
The second thing you can do, IF you need to make larger one-time purchases on your credit card, is pay it off as soon as you exceed 30%.

Third strategy I’ve used is to have MULTIPLE lines of credit so that it lowers the overall credit utilization.

But…the GOOD news with this is that even if you DO max out your credit card…your drop in credit score is only temporary until you pay it off!

Third: Opening up too much credit, too quickly
Each time you apply for new credit, it’s called a “hard inquiry” – which just means that a third party has run your credit, indicating you’ve applied for a loan. Each time this happens, it’ll lower your credit score about 3-5 points…and this affects your credit score for the next 6 months.

On one hand, the more credit cards you have, generally the more diverse your credit history is, and because of that, the HIGHER your score will be – LONG TERM. In the short term, however, the more cards you apply for at once, the higher risk you become to lenders, and because of that, the LOWER the score you’ll have.

So when it comes to this, here is my advice:
If you’re planning to buy a house or car in the next 6-8 months, or you plan to finance any large upcoming purchases, DO NOT open up new lines of credit. It’s just too risky and if you lower your score at a time where you need it the most, it could be detrimental to your loan!

Fourth: Closing an old credit card.
This is because the AVERAGE length of your credit history makes up 15% of your overall credit score, so when you cancel an old credit line, you inadvertently also lower the AVERAGE age of your credit. This is why It’s important to ALWAYS keep your oldest credit accounts active, even if you never use them – just because this weighs down your average account age to show it’s been open longer.

Fifth: Not having any credit at all!
If you don’t have a credit score, you’re an “unknown” to lenders because your entire credit score is NOTHING…and because of that, no lender will ever loan you money for a house, or a car, or anything else you might want to finance. If this is you, learn from my mistake and get SOME type of credit card.

    I would think that there is nothing wrong with having allot of credit cards as long as you keep your credit utilization low and more importantly, pay all your bills.

    It is incredibly easy doing this using the company GUILDUNLOCKS NET I m not saying this video is not okay but just like Laura said I’m not quite sure its going to get you the exact results you’re looking for that why I reached out to dane and explained everything to him I was living with a very poor credit and life wasn’t at all easy thanks to him I was able to jump it from 505 to 800 he even said to me its highly rare finding a person who got a score of 800 but he said he liked my approach and I deserved it Im extremely happy because life has gotten easier ever since then if you need help find him and come thank me later

    When I signed up with dane from Guildunlocks net I had 18 negative items across all 3 credit reports plus a judgement and a bankruptcy It's been 3 weeks and the judgement and bankruptcy have been removed from all 3 reports They were also successful in getting all other negatives removed from my Trans union and Experian I now only have 4 left on Equifax but they are old and paid in full so they really are not affecting my score anyway My scores have all gone from low to mid 600 to around 700 to 740 and it would not have happened without Hackerdane at yahoo dot com through mail

    Being patient with Guildunlocks net during my credit repair process was worth it Last year I enlisted in the National Guard and did all of my training from Jan-August I had almost $13k worth of collections after i added up the line of credit that i was paying daily interest on It was a pretty rough time I was 12 months into my car loan and every time I applied to refinance I got denied I tried to get a debt consolidation loan and got denied Then I had to switch employers and also got denied for their credit check But thanks to Guildunlocks net who has helped me repair my credit and given me an excellent score 820 Now I no longer get denied for anything at all

    If you’re young and just want to start is it wise to open several lines of hard inquiry in a few months. Yes it would lower the score in the short term but after 2+ years it would benefit you generally

    Hello everyone, I am writing this review to express my extreme satisfaction with the way Mr White handled the correction and reconciliation of my credit report.
    Prior to the work done by Mr white, I had difficulty in obtaining credit purchases and business credit on many occasions. …I am now able to obtain almost any personal or business credit I require. Mr White is truly an exception to the many people who advertise credit repair but never follow through.
    Contact directly (845) 459-3873
    Thank you so much for your very expert assistance

    I was looking to improve my credit score to be able to purchase a home. I researched several credit repair agencies and did have some apprehension to utilize a credit repair service. I contacted Mr white and at this time my credit scores with the 3 agencies were 593, 619 and 623,I had a few hard inquiries, collections and other negative items on my credit. After the process was completed, all my inquiries and negative items were all deleted and my score with the 3 agencies were increased to 803, 817 and 821 respectively.
    I would highly recommend to anyone who may need a legit and reliable credit repair service to call them (845-459-3873).

    I would like to take this time to thank Mr white for helping me repair my credit. I must admit that I was very skeptical at first because I was told that most credit repair services were only a scam and that no one could repair my credit. However, today I am a firm believer and am proud to say to anyone that because of your professional services, I was able to get excellent credit.
    Once again, thank you so much. I really cannot explain in words how grateful I am to you (Mr white). contact (845-459-3873) they’re very legit and trustworthy

    I applied for a new card with 780 credit score but got denied saying not enough trades. What is not enough trades. Is it because I pay my balance every month?

  38. July 24, 2021 at 4:37 pm

    All these comments about Andy Hacks LLC., DID THIS MAN PAY ALL THESE PEOPLE???. Because most every comment that I'm reading, it said something about ANDY HACKS LLC helping them out. Sounds like there's a bunch of suckers out here, paying someone to clean up there credit. YOU could do-it-yourself, it's really easy to do.

    as a credit card newb who just got his first credit card this year, I'm wondering when it is a late payment. My payment is due on the 7th of each month. Now if I pay it off on the 1st but then use it again on the 5th, is that considered payed off, or I owe what I payed on the 5th by the 7th? Not the next month
