Most credit scores operate within the range of 300 to 850. Within that range, there are different general categories, from bad to excellent. They typically look like this:
- Excellent Credit: 750+
- Good Credit: 700 to 749
- Fair Credit: 650 to 699
- Poor Credit: 600 to 649
- Bad Credit: below 600
Remember, the term good can be relative. Different lenders and credit companies have different standards and qualifications.
Credit.com gets its scores from Experian and VantageScore 3.0, which are widely used by many financial institutions.
You can check your credit score as often as you’d like. Checking your credit score on a monthly basis is a great idea so you can keep track of any changes and monitor activity. It might be wise to check it more often if you have reason to suspect there is fraudulent activity on your account.
Your credit score is made up of five categories:
- Payment history, which accounts for 35% of your score.
- Credit utilization, which accounts for 30% of your score.
- Length of credit history, which accounts for 15% of your score.
- Types of credit, which accounts for 10% of your score.
- Account inquiries or new credit, which account for 10% of your score.
Because of this, a lot of things can negatively affect your credit score. Some of them include: late payments, applying for new lines of credit, going bankrupt or carrying a balance from month to month.
On the other hand, plenty of things can positively affect your credit. This includes things like having your credit cards for a long time, paying bills on time, having a variety of types of credit and using your credit card each month.
