You’re probably aware that the strength of your credit history is important because it affects your likelihood of being approved for things like mobile phone contracts, mortgages, credit cards and loans — as well as impacting the cost that these products will be offered to you.
“I know that this is a topic that is almost over explored. It’s also a topic that we can find on the Loqbox blog. But I am still not sure how to maximise the benefits of having a credit card. I used a credit-builder credit card for almost 2 years, but my credit score did not improve significantly. Because of this, I’m worried I’m doing something wrong. Could you elaborate on the way customers should behave? I mean, we all know that paying in full every month means that we won’t be charged any interest, but when exactly should we clear our balance? Let’s say that the balance closes on the 6th of every month, should we clear it before the end of the month so 30th/31st or after the statement so 6th/7th? Is it better to clear 100% of balance or maybe 99%, as I saw somewhere?” – Loqbox customer
