Will my car lease help boost my credit score?
I have struggled with a score in the low 600s for years.

I was able to get a lease of a 2012 Honda Accord back in May of 2012.

The salesperson said my credit score will soar if I make all of my lease payments, I am doing a great job of this and making all of the payments on time.

I have several credit cards and currently 61% utilization rate because I am jobless as of right now. I have credit limits of 18k, 5k, 2k, 2k, 1k, 750, and 350.

I also have dept store cards that I rarely use (200 and 620) both are currently at 0.
