Join our #CreditChat on Twitter and YouTube every Wednesday at 3 p.m. ET.
In our third chat of Financial Literacy Month we were super excited to chat with Jeanne Kelly, Journalist & Nationally-Recognized Voice in Credit Consulting, about ways to rebuild and raise credit scores.
If you missed the conversation, you can read it in the storified version below, and we’ll be sharing top tweets from the chat in the next few days on SlideShare.
If you have ideas for future topics and guests, please tweet @MikeDelgado.
Your credit score determines which loans you’ll qualify for and the interest rate you’ll receive. Good credit= better rates! @Payoff
Paying credit accounts late, missing payments or not paying them at all will kill the credit score. @MsMadamMoney
Rebuilding Credit Mistake: Getting multiple credit card accounts and maxing them out. @MsMadamMoney
Don’t spend time cleaning up your credit and then make a huge credit card purchase. Try to keep balance less than 30%. @TurboTax
Fixing your credit takes time and patience. It doesn’t take much to trash your credit, but it does take a lot to restore it. @LeslieHTayne
