There’s a lot of reasons for this, like it’s too complicated, or it’s too risky, or it takes too much time to build. We’d like to clear all of that up and teach people the importance of having good credit, as well as some very useful tips ! Building your credit young can lead to many advantages, for example having credit young can set you up for success in financing things like vehicles or homes. Take steps to build your credit by applying for a credit card with your own bank and using their internals to your own benefit. As well as putting a down payment on a credit card to avoid missing payments. It is also very beneficial to start young, because it gives you lots of time to bring up your score if it is brought down by missed payments etc. It can be as easy as paying your phone bill on time, or making small purchases on a credit card you know you can pay off right away! Another thing to raise your score, is if you have money saved for a large purchase, put it on your credit card then pay it off as soon as you can.
