Re: Never Be Late, Ever

[ Edited ]

We should build a "Commandments for Credit list"

 

 

1. Never pay late

2. Don't max out your cards

3. Garden unless you have a reason not to

4. Available credit does not equal available spending money

5. Monitor your reports

6. Never pay late (just to reiterate)

7. Apply only for credit you need

8. Know thy fees - read all terms of conditions before applying for credit

9. Be weary when co-signing

 

Just throwing that out there...

"Credit is purely a cash flow tool. Thinking of credit as extra money you didn't have before makes it an EXPENSIVE cash flow tool."

Re: Never Be Late, Ever

I remember this post.  Back when I had three very fresh lates on my report.  Have not been late since.  I am glad someone brought it back.
