A credit card can afford you everyday purchases and long term wants, but paying it off every month is important to maintain a healthy credit profile. Missed payments can easily lead to a lower credit score. Borrowell can help with managing your credit profile by: 1) Providing your Equifax credit report for free every month, 2) Telling you if your credit utilization is healthy, and 3) Explaining why your credit score might have seen a change. Monitoring your credit score is the first step to improving it and being eligible for more credit in the future. Follow tips from our AI-powered credit coach, Molly and keep your credit profile at its best.
Maintaining a healthy credit score means using 30% or less of your total credit limit. If your credit limit is $1,000, you should keep your monthly balance under $300. Monitor your spending and if you notice that your expenses exceed $300 per month, consider applying for a higher credit limit to maintain a healthy credit utilization ratio - just make sure you're able to pay off the full balance at the end of the month. If you don't feel comfortable increasing your credit limit, try to pay off your credit card bills early to keep your utilization ratio low.
