First this is to obviously pay your bills on time. Then, analize what is keeping your score down.

You can request a credit increase from a creditor that you have a good history with and the will lower your credit utilization, thereby increasing your score.

Never close an account. That reduces you length of credit history and lowers your score.

Always try and pay more than the minimum on credit cards. Reducing the amount owed will decrease your credit utilization and increase your score. Concentrating on paying off higher interest rate cards will free up money faster to use to pay down other cards.
