Remember a few weeks ago when we talked about my friends’ endeavor to build credit in order to buy a home? They are on their way!
They are working on building their credit scores, coming from absolutely nothing – NO credit to speak of. Good, bad or indifferent. I advised her to get a credit card, so she did – one with a $200 limit. She got the card and charged no more than $60 or so, with good reason, as we discussed in this post.
She’s been getting gas for her car with her new card and guess what?!
Her credit has jumped 64 points in just a couple of weeks – and she hasn’t even paid the bill yet!!!
Way to go, girl!! She’s going to let me know how much higher her score jumps after she pays that first bill. I’m so happy for them!!
Are you looking to build your credit score as well? You’ll want to start right over here:
