Re: Never Be Late, Ever

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."

Haha I love this article, it's so true!  Do everything you can to always be early computer systems can have delays and weekends and holidays always confuse people and  computers so always  always be early.

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.
