Raise Credit Score some more?
So, I finally got out of my bad habits and worked on my credit. I went from 506 and now is at 712. Paid all my debts off, raised my credit limit on my credit card, kept my credit utilization at 20%, and continued to pay everything on time for a whole year.

Now that I'm at 712, what else can I do to raise my score? I'm looking to get to at least 760, but I'm not sure what steps to take to help it keep rising. Any tips or suggestions?
