not knowing whats in your credit report

Helpful to 1 out of 1 people

Its hard to give you specifics as to what would be best for you. 

Good scores come from using your credit wisely, Keeping usage low, Making all payments on time and good credit management.  I suggest that you read some of the articles and blog posts here on CK and put that info to work for you. 

Also realize that scores do not change instantly because of 1 action on your part.  Credit reporting is slow and takes time.  it can take up to 90 days for reporting and cross reporting to occur.  So as an example, paying off a credit card in full may take up to 3 months to be reported across all 3 of your credit reports. 

Nothing is instantanious in credit scoring. 

Good luck
