Make sure to check your credit to ensure there is not any fraudulent activity, unknown charges ect.

Keep the balances low on your credit cards, pay off the higher interest credit cards first. 

If you can pay off your credit card debt each month with will also help increase your credit score,

Dont open multiple credit cards you will not be using, too many credit cards can have a reverse affect on your credit.

Most important is to pay all your debt on time. Setting up a automatic bill pay through your bank can help to insure the payments are made on time.

Yes paying your bills on time is great and also you may want to also get a small bank credit card and use it some but make sure you pay it off in full each month, don't have a balance that would transfer over each month.

Hello rstephenson,

Thank you for the great question.  The best thing is to pay your bills on time. Not only this but if you use a credit card, pay the entire balance before it's due. As you do this, you will see your credit score improve. This is what I do and I have found success. I hope this helps.
