Good question

Be careful your score could go down. In order to get and keep a good credit score you have to have a good credit mix. Example: 2 credit cards (revolving credit), 1 car loan/personal loan (installment loan) 1 mortgage (installment loan). I know...it doesn't sound right but in order to keep a good credit score you have to be in debt. However, if you're not in the market to make any large purchases soon (like a car/home) why worry about it. I hope this helps!
