What is the correct way to use a credit card?
I want to get my first credit card for about a 1500 one time purchase that I can payoff in 12 months. And after that just for emergencies. I just don't understand how they work and what is the absolute correct best practices. My score is 644 and really want to be in the high 700's in about a year. Help and advice please?
