Credit cards Updated:
Having a good credit score is the key to a wealth of borrowing opportunities. It can quite literally open doors to anything from credit cards and mortgages to phone contracts and bank accounts, but without a decent rating behind you, those doors will be locked firmly shut. So, rather than what you should do if you want good credit, we thought we'd take a look at what you absolutely should NOT do if you want to build your score to credit-worthy heights.
Remember, in order to secure a mortgage, credit card or personal loan you need to have a good credit rating. To find out if yours has a clean bill of health, contact a credit check provider, such as Experian CreditExpert to investigate your credit report.
