Your credit score is a very important financial number in your financial life. The higher your score, the higher your chances for qualifying for loans and credit cards at favorable terms which will save you more money. You know I have passion for finding ways to save you more money. If your credit score is not in the high 700, then you need to consider improving it. There are some quick steps you can take to see some quick bounce in your credit score, but it generally takes time to see meaningful improvement especially if your current score is in the low 400’s. I came across an interesting statistics on FICO website about credit score distribution in America:


FICO Score Range Percentage of U.S. Consumers
800-850 20.7%
750-799 19%
700-749 17.1%
650-699 13.2%
600-649 10%
550-599 8.5%
500-549 6.8%
300-499 4.7%


If your credit score is below 650, it is considered not good. And this episode is for you.

Approximate Credit Rating FICO Score Range
Exceptional 800 or above
Very Good 740-799
Good 670-739
Fair 580-669
Poor Below 580
