I have a score of 697, account and a balance on 2 how do I get my score higher?
I have an account at best buy through wells Fargo, a home furnishings business though capital one, weisfield jewelers, and now a new credit card though my bank. I have a balance on the one at best buy and at the home furnishings.
I got the credit card at my bank to make it my primary credit account. I want to close all others but this one once all others are paid off, is this wise to raise my score?

I want to raise my score from 697 to at least 775
