Guidelines to push credit score to maximum are as below-

1)Have three to five revolving accounts like credit cards
2)one or more installment account like a mortgage or auto loan
3) the older your accounts the better it is for credit score and rating
4)all accounts must be in good standing
5) limit hard credit inquiries to no more than one a month
6) don't charge your credit card more than 15% of the credit limit

Then over the time, you will get a near perfect credit score and rating.

Sara, you seem to know some things about credit scroes. What is the highest achievable score? I never heard of one in the eight hundreds but that doesn't mean it is not possible.

Thats correct the credit score range is from 300 - 850

The score is calcuted based on all the information in yoru credit report

Major afctors which can affect this would be lenght of the credit history and the amount you have borrowed and how logn is yoru credt and the type of credit you have and any new accounts

So now i thought i had a good credit rating I just got demoted to just fair with a 740 rating.Sounds like a big scam just to keep interest rates higher on goods and insurance premiums higher because in michigan they check your credit score before they give you a qoute.

Trying to help my son get on track, but there are many terms that I don't understand. What is a "fall off"? What does it mean to your overall when a debt is designated "settled"? Is it at all beneficial to go back & pay that debt in full? What is a "write off"? If a debt has gone to a collection agency, is there a benefit to the credit score to go back to the original creditor? What is the best strategy? Pay off the oldest debts first? The smallest debts first? HELP, please! Thanks.

Is that true on with every one of the three credit reporting agencies, do each of them use the same scale?

goodnatured, they do not. My credit score differs between each one. I think its ridiculous really. They should all be the same; especially because certain places only look at certain scores. It could be the company that rates you lower & then your interest rates are higher. I personally think they should all be the same OR there should be just one credit bureau to handle credit scores/reports.

My boyfriend had a 740 score before his bankruptcy & he got excellent rates. My score was 690 and I got "average rates". I honestly don't even know what my credit score is right now because there were some things that messed it up. I'm trying to rebuild it back up though after the mistakes.

I think there should be some type of regulation that they have to follow, credit effects so much these days, some employers actually check credit before hiring people, it can devastate your whole lfe if you have collectors on your butt.

I really think that this whole system needs an overhaul, they give collectors too much freedom in going in and getting information off your report, putting ticklers on your file, etc. What other agency do you know has this liberty with out violating some type of privacy laws, I know of none.
