Infographic: Ten Tips to Improve Your Credit Score

I was surprised to see my credit score went down a bit the last time I checked and after some investigation I realized it was due to a number of inquiries that resulted in nothing really. I never realized that number of inquiries does have an effect on your credit score. In my case I was opening a few new credit cards with 0% interest and closing a few that had interest that weren’t very old anyways.  When all was said and done it did drop my score a bit, not much, but it was worth the education I received.

  1. I have never bothered to check my credit score, it’s just not something that is regularly done in Australia.

    • MonsterPiggyBank Really? So what about when applying for a mortgage or car loan? Does the score not play a key factor in Australia?

      • DegreesandDebt MonsterPiggyBank It does play a factor, but the banks tend to be the only ones that actually look at your credit score. As far as I can tell it doesn’t play as big as a ole as it does in the US, but it definitely makes a difference.

  2. Your credit score is very important in the US. I am slowly improving it by paying off my debt. Thanks for the infographic it was very helpful.
