Spring Credit Bootcamp Series: Credit Scores and How to Improve Them

Our weekly #CreditChat started in 2012 to help our community learn about credit and important personal finance topics (e.g. saving money, paying down debt, improving credit scores). Each chat is hosted by @Experian on Twitter and all are welcome to participate. DM us any questions.

Throughout the month of March we are taking things back to the basics with our credit bootcamp series. Each week, our hour-long conversations will feature important information about credit reports, credit scores and the role credit plays in our financial lives. Additionally, we will host special Twitter Spaces conversations to address your burning credit questions. Join us!
