Let’s Talk About Get Smart About Credit Day 2022

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.

Get Smart About Credit Day takes place every year on the third Thursday of October. This year we are thrilled to partner with the American Bankers Association to share some important information about this initiative a day before it launches. Tune into this week’s #CreditChat for some important credit tips.
