Will being late once affect my credit score very much?
I used my Kohl's card for a very small purchase (under $20) and totally forgot to pay the bill!! My first late payment ever! How will this affect my score?

If the rest of your history is good it should not have that much of an affect. If you have a long history with Kohls call them and explain the situation and ask if they can remove the late payment from your report as a goodwill gesture. Sometimes a creditor will do this. Best of luck.
