trying to build credit score
I just spent over a 1000 dollars just to receive a 5 point increasement in my credit score. I could have paid that over a period of time and gotten a better score. then 5 points what gives? I figured it would have been a bit more then 5 points. Some one please tell me that, that is not accurate and it will go up shortly. Because in the past I pay 60 bucks or so to my credit and it went up on average 5 points then. 1000 dollars is a bit more then 60 bucks
